This book written by a self-described British agnostic is a gem. I am a Christian and some years ago was an ardent defender of dispensational theology. The author is well versed in the history of Zionism both in terms of Christian Zionism which is so rampant in the USA today, and its earlier proto-type in England and other places. I enjoyed reading about the encounters that Clark had traversing various places to get insight into the movement among North American fundamentalist religious evengelicals. She is fair in her presentation for the most part. I was slightly perturbed by her constant reference to the SBC as the Southern Baptist Conference, instead of the well-known largest protestant denomination, the Southern Baptist Convention. Also, Clark misapplied a catch all label to amillennial eschatology as being allegorical/idealist, which is not necessarily the case. But these are minor inaccuracies in a well written book. Anyone that has dealings with Zionists may want to read this book to get into the psyche of these unconditional carte blanche defenders of Israel!

This fascinating book exposes the unpleasant ideology of Christian Zionism. Christian Zionists believe that the road to heaven on earth lies through a final battle of Armageddon in which all non-born-again Christians, and two-thirds of all Jews, will be killed. No wonder then that the Anglican clergyman Naim Ateek called Christian Zionism `the worst anti-Semitism one can imagine'.

We are all familiar with the tired old Zionist claim that all anti-Zionism is really anti-Semitism in disguise. The existence of Christian Zionism proves that there are anti-Semites who are pro-Zionist. There are of course also anti-Zionists who are anti-Semites. There are anti-Semites on both sides of the argument about Zionism.

Victoria Clark spent time with leading Christian Zionists and heard, with incredulity, what they say to their followers. They want war; they want the USA to "obliterate Syria" and they want Israel to "nuke Iran". They believe that these wars will hasten the desired day of the `rapture', the end-times when the tiny minority of true believers will be taken up to heaven and Christ will establish heaven on earth.

If you seek an explanation for why the world is in the mess it's in -- especially referring to U.S. foreign policy and our endless wars -- seek no further! This book traces Christian Zionism way back to its centuries-old roots and shows how its history is profoundly entangled with that of the U.S. and England -- and continues to be so today. This is a profoundly important book for anyone not yet crushed under the heel of political correctness. Yes, you can be opposed to the policies that grow out of Christian Zionism without being anti-Semitic, despite propaganda to the contrary.

This is really an amazing book--full of history and current relevancy of the origins of the fundamentalist Christian interpretations of the Bible, and their effects on political events from the 18th to the 21st centuries. The drive to "bless Israel" in order to receive the blessings of God, then to create the conditions for the the final battle of Armageddon and the Second Coming has brought about a number of contradictory and dangerous policies which may be monetarily helpful to the "State" of Israel, but longer term lay the foundation for its destruction. Clark hopefully is exaggerating to a degree how pervasive this eagerness for the Second Coming is among fundamentalist Christian sects (Christian Zionists) since she puts huge numbers to the believers in this course of events--not the least of these George W. Bush. This may be just another way to bash Bush and this partiality somewhat undercuts her credibility. The historical first half of the book, though, is well worth reading and understanding.
