Who are We?

We are the official website of the Institute for the Study of Christian Zionism which is a group of pastors, academics, students, interested laypersons and a Rabbi who have been disturbed by the growing influence of Christian Zionism on the political scene in America recognizing this ideology to be a major factor in the stalled peace process in Israel / Palestine.

Our critique is offered at two levels:  1) theologically, challenging what we believe to be a distorted interpretation of biblical eschatology which transforms the Prince of Peace into a Vengeful Warrior God.  2)  Politically, as we recognize that the theology shaped by this distorted view of scripture too easily morphs into a militaristic, anti-Palestinian, pro-expansionist ideology with negative consequences for all parties in the current conflict.  

We offer an alternative biblical view, one that we believe reflects the teachings of Jesus Christ, and God as a God of compassion and justice.
