Christian Zionism: Roadmap to Armageddon? (Arabic)

I am delighted to make available a digital copy of my book Christian Zionism: Roadmap to Armageddon? in Arabic – indeed two versions. The first was kindly translated by Nicholas Abou Mrad in Lebanon and published by the Arab Group for Christian Muslim Dialogue. The second was translated by Revd Jos Strengholt and published by the Anglican Publishing House in Cairo.

The book is also available in English and published by Wipf & Stock

“I am glad to commend Stephen Sizer’s ground-breaking critique of Christian Zionism. His comprehensive overview of its roots, its theological basis and its political consequences is very timely. I myself believe that Zionism, both political and Christian, is incompatible with biblical faith. Stephen’s book has helped to reinforce this conviction.” Revd John Stott, the former Rector, All Soul’s, Langham Place, London, principal framer of the Lausanne Covenant (1974) and founder of the Langham Partnership International.
