Washington, DC—Amid shifting currents of opinion among American Christians about Israel, the Institute on Religion and Democracy will host a reception and discussion on Christian Zionism in America on July 12 at the National Press Club.
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. McDermott’s book offers a new Christian Zionism distinct from often popular Dispensationalist and apocalyptic perspectives. We anticipate a lively discussion!
