Week 34: Christian Zionism Online Gathering

Week 34: Christian Zionism Online Gathering

A replay will be posted here a day after the meeting.

You can find the 2021 gathering here.

On August 23 we learned about the ongoing, and sadly growing, threat of Christian Zionism and its misguided theology towards Palestine. We were joined by Rev. Dr. Donald Wagner.

More about our guests:

Dale Sprusansky of WRMEA offers this succinct bio of Rev. Dr. Wagner

Don Wagner is the recently retired director of Friends of Sabeel North America. Prior to that, he was a professor of Middle East Studies at North Park University where he was also the director of its Center for Middle Eastern Studies. He is also a former director of the Palestine Human Rights Campaign. He is an ordained Presbyterian minister who has served churches in New Jersey and Evanston, IL. He is the co-author of five books. He has one coming out called, Glory to God in the Lowest: Journeys to an Unholy Land, which you can pre-order today or buy online at our bookstore MiddleEast Books.com.

That is from an excellent recent interview with Rev. Wagner:
