On Behalf of Israel: American Fundamentalist Attitudes Toward Jews, Judaism, and Zionism, 1865-1945
Dispensationalists believe that god deals with the earth in a set of successive "dispensations," in which humans are to respond in specific ways to show their obedience. Ariel tells the story of the rise of the dispensationalist wing of the fundamentalist movement, which in the 19th century determined from their literal reading of Biblical prophecy that the second coming of Jesus demanded the restoration of Israel, and that America had to give political support to the founding of a nation of Israel to help make ready such a return.
