Review of The New Christian Zionism

I review very few books, but I believe this book is worth reading.

The New Christian Zionism
Gerald R. McDermott, Editor
copyright 2016
IVP Academic, 349 pages

Contributors to the book include Robert Benne, Craig Blaising, Darrell Bock, Mark S. Kinzer, Shadi Khalloul, Gerald R. McDermott, Robert Nicholson, David Rudolph, Mark Tooley, and Joel Willitts.

The writers define the "New Christian Zionism" as a theologically-rooted conviction that Israel has a corporate right to exist "with the same human rights and security guarantees that other nations receive" and that God's plan in the future involves Israel as a national entity and as a body of Jewish followers of Messiah. (p. 308)
