A History of Christian Zionism in Britain

Author: Dr James Patrick

Product code: BT119

Where does Britain`s interest in, respect for and appreciation of Jewish people, their history - and the influence of Judaism, come from? - It`s love for the Jewish people.

In November 1917, Britian issued the Balfour Declaration, which the League of Nations then incorporated into the Mandate for Palestine.  Its purpose was fulfilled with the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948.  But why was it Britain, rather than any other country, who led the nations in restoring the Jewish people to their ancient homeland?  

This booklet surveys the key role played by Christians in the three centuries of British political activism for Jewish national restoration.  It also traces the influences upon this idea back into far earlier times, beyond the failures of the mediaeval period and into the era of the Celtic saints.

This CONTEXT booklet by Dr James Patrick gives a good overview of British history in relation to the Jewish people.
