Format: Paperback
Dr. Gannon is the excellent individual to write this important book of the 'status' of Israel and just how the world shifts in it attention to the Word of God.
This book, with many helps, connects Christians who are Assemblies of God Pentecostal believers. and sets in place a warning of the dangers to the Pentecostal Theology of Israel. For the reader,please read the Epilogue first....The Everlasting Bond Between Classical Pentecostalism And The Jewish State.
This is a great book based on the subject written generally from the standpoint of the beliefs of the Assemblies of God denomination.
Dr. Gannon has a great background in the theologies of this subject. This is a timely book for today as we read of the thoughts of the leadership of the U. S. Government and the State of Israel.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Raymond Gannon has been called upon for teaching bible and Jewish ministries, as well as planting messianic synagogues, and assuming the post of National Representative for Jewish Ministries with The Assemblies of God. He holds graduate degrees from Princeton Theological Seminary, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary, and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

The Shifting Romance With Israel is an intellectual discussion about the fraternal twin movements: Zionism and American Pentecostalism. He based this on an earlier dissertation he had made regarding the American Evangelical and Pentecostal growing ambivalence toward national Israel. Most of his research data came from The Assemblies of God, his own denomination.

There are alot of sources used, including The Pentecostal Evangel, the magazine published by The Assemblies of God, several theologial seminaries, newspaper articles, and quotes from numerous people. There is a "Latter Rain" ideology using the contemporary Zionist revival as evidence of the supernatural intervention of God to restore Israel even as the Church was to be restored to the radical first-century apostolic emphasis. Puritans saw a spiritual rather than a national restoration of Israel. In the 1600's Gannon quotes people who declare Israel will be like Paul, having their Damascus Road experience and follow Christ.

John and Charles Wesley, and George Whitfield broke tradition in many respects, incorporating extemporaneous prayer, intimate group fellowship, freshly composed hymns, and mobile services. Charles Finney said widespead holiness would precede the millennium. Cyrus Scofield saw no link between Israel in the Old Testament to the Church today. Dwight L. Moody, Reuben A. Torrey, A.J. Gordon, A.T. Pierson, and A.B.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Raymond L. Gannon traces the parallel growth of the Pentecostal and Zionist movements through the 20th Century in his book "The Shifting Romance with Israel." He examines the growing ambivalence of the American Evangelical and Pentecostal movements toward the nation of Israel to provide an in depth study and analysis.

I found Gannon's development of the historical, biblical, and eschatological views and their influence on American Pentecostalism ideals at the beginning of the 20th century fascinating. He begins with the views of the New World Puritans working back through the understanding espoused by church leaders including: Luther, Calvin, John Fox, and the earlier Puritans Theologians. He also introduces the pre-millennialism, dispensational, and restoration movements and their unique differences.

In addition to the historical influences leading up to the formation of the ideology of Pentecostalism, Gannon analyzes the ideology of Zionism, including a look at Anti-Semitism, and Messianic Zionism.

Extensive end notes add credence to Gannon's meticulous research and also serve as a resource for future study for the serious student of prophecy and eschatology. An accompanying glossary helps the reader identify more closely with unique vocabulary included throughout the analysis.

"The Shifting Romance with Israel" is must reading for every Evangelical, Pentecostal, and Mainstream Denominational leader. The reader should make the book available to everyone within their sphere of influence. Highly recommended.
