Christian Zionism with Jonathan Immanuel

Britain, the Bible, and Balfour unpacks the tumultuous history of the idea of a unique Jewish home state—and the development of Zionism—as it took shape over the course of several centuries in England. The author shows that the theo-political vision of Zionism is a peculiarly British phenomenon with roots that go back to the English Reformation. Jonathan Immanuel investigates the origins and evolution of Christian Zionism in England and then its spread to America.

Immanuel has been a library fellow at the Van Leer Institute Jerusalem since 2012, and, as a working journalist from 1980, covered the Israel-Palestinian conflict through the 1982 war in Lebanon, the First Intifada in 1988 and the Oslo accords in 1994 to the Second Intifada in 2000. At 73 he is still a part-time journalist.
