Gerald McDermott of Beeson Divinity School and an ordained Anglican will discuss his new book Israel Matters: Why Christians Must Think Differently About the People and the Land. And Samuel Goldman of George Washington University will discuss his new book God’s Country Christian Zionism in America. Both will discuss pro and anti-Israel trends in American Christianity.
