Mixed feelings ...
on 22 August 2008
While the book is a helpful addition to the debate on the subject of Zionism I found it at times (especially early on) rather an irritating read!
Not because of disagreements with what Pawson says (that is a separate issue) but because of the way he says it - he repeatedly inserts rather snide comments that are unnecessary & rather unworthy.
Given that the subject is so emotive, a less inflammatory response would have been more helpful... better to let our theologising & exegesis promote constructive dialogue, than being critical of a 'target' (Pawson's own word) who is a fellow believer?
That said, much of what he writes is clear & concise even if rather 'sweeping' at times.
Worth buying? Yes.
