Christian Zionism With Daniel Hummel Pt 2 | American Prestige
byThe Nation Magazine

On this episode of American Prestige, hosts Danny Bessner and Derek Davison speak with Daniel Hummel, director for university engagement at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Upper House. Hummel returns to the podcast to continue a conversation about Christian Zionism in the United States since 1948.

In this episode, we pick up with the rise of the new Christian right in the 1970s, the role of Zionism therein, dispensationalism and its notion of Jews and Israel, the Israeli right’s concurrent rise to power, Jimmy Carter as a non-Zionist evangelical, the Camp David Accords, Ronald Reagan’s relationship with Christian Zionism, and where the movement stood on the eve of the Oslo Accords.

You can catch up on the first episode in this series here.

Daniel’s book is Covenant Brothers: Evangelicals, Jews, and U.S.-Israeli Relations.
