Many evangelical Christians, probably most, are avid supporters of the Jewish State. But not all of them. There is a growing number of megachurch pastors and opinion shapers - like singing artists, professors and publishers - who are adopting and promoting an anti-Israel "Christian" narrative.

Van Zile's new book exposes a devastating reality: Christian anti-Semitism has returned. Today it is an entrenched narrative in mainline Protestant churches.
