A SHORT HISTORY OF CHRISTIAN ZIONISM

From the Reformation to the Twenty-First Century

This book is about an idea―namely, that Scripture mandates a Jewish return to the historical region of Palestine―which in turn morphed into a political movement, rallied around a popular slogan ("A country without a nation for a nation without a country"), and eventually contributed to the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948.

​The Manuscript Journal of Joseph Oppenheimer, City Missionary

A small hand-written journal kept daily by a door-to-door evangelist with the London City Mission in 1861 provides a rich resource for our understanding of urban mission in the midst of the desperate poverty of slum life. Through a study of these notations, penned by German-Jewish convert and city missionary Joseph Oppenheimer, Donald Lewis sheds new light on the work of Victorian Evangelicals among the urban poor "in darkest London."

Lewis examines why British evangelicals became fascinated with the Jews and how they promoted a ‘teaching of esteem” that countered a “teaching of contempt.” Evangelicals militated for the restoration of Jews to Palestine by lobbying the British cabinet on foreign policy decisions ....
