The Shifting Romance with Israel
Linking Pentecostals and Jews. An intellectual discussion about the fraternal twin movements: Zionism and American Pentecostalism. Everyone interested in Israel and its relationships with religious groups in the United States will be enthralled with this thoroughly researched and thoughtfully presented examination of two world-changing movements. Shifting Romance with Israel is an intellectual discussion about the fraternal twin movements: Zionism and American Pentecostalism, birthed at the beginning of the 20th century. Both newborns, initially treated as weak and infantile in a religiously hostile world, had a basis of ideological support in three centuries of American myth and motif. The burgeoning Pentecostal movement of the early decades of the century had great difficulty persuading Christian contemporaries of the legitimacy of their unique doctrine. To assure the perpetuity of the Pentecostal movement, a Latter Rain ideology was created, which used the contemporary Zionist revival as corroborating evidence to restore Israel to Zion and the Church to its radical first-century apostolic essence. Full of credible research and biblically supported substance, the truths within will cause Jews and Christians alike to consider their spiritual relationship with Israel.
