Item description for Faith at the Crossroads: A Theological Profile of Religious Zionism (Brill Reference Library of Judaism) by Dov Schwartz...
Religious Zionism emerged as an organized political movement in 1902, rebelling against the ethos of passivity endorsed by a mostly anti-Zionist Eastern European Orthodoxy. This text presents religious-Zionists as a new religious type, driven by distinct theological conceptions that re-examine fundamental notions, including God, faith, and historical process. Dov Schwartz's detailed analysis exposes the roots of a political movement that has proven crucially influential in Israeli politics, both before and after the establishment of the state.
