Subject: Has the Church Replaced Israel?

Participants: Stephen Sizer and Calvin Smith

Dr Stephen Sizer has spent many years studying the theology, politics and history of the Middle East, and has travelled extensively throughout the region. He adapted his PhD thesis into a book, Christian Zionism - Road Map to Armageddon? He believes that Christian Zionism plays an important and dangerous role in the politics of the Middle East, shaping U.S. foreign policy. He argues that Christian Zionism has no biblical foundation or historical precedent.

He lectures in theology and hermeneutics, as well as researching and writing in the fields of Evangelicalism and politics, Pentecostalism in Latin America and Christian responses to the modern State of Israel.
