First Things: A Monthly Journal of Religion & Public Life;Jun/Jul2008, Issue 184, p21
The article focuses on the theological implications of Zionism from a Christian perspective. Divided views of Christian groups are addressed regarding the inherent necessity for the Jewish people to have a sovereign state in their identity as the "People of God." The secular and religious distinctions in Zionism are also mentioned, analyzing the contradictions between a lack of Christian ideology for theocracy while still affirming it within Judaism.
