Zion's Christian Soldiers?: The Bible, Israel and the Church

Zion's Christian Soldiers?: The Bible, Israel and the Church - Stephen Sizer Sizer makes the case for why he believes dispensationalists are wrong in their understanding of the Bible and covenant. As a Muslim, much of what he had to say regarding intrepretation of scripture resonated with me. His criticism of Tim LaHaye and others' reading of contemporary events into Biblical passages showed how easy it is for anyone to make scripture read one way or other when the contextual and historical context of the passage is ignored.
