Evangelicals and Israel

Here’s an essay discussing the shifting allegiances of evangelicals with regard to Israel. It’s an interesting thing. On the one hand, evangelicals have been among the most stalwart supporters of Israel, in part due to dispensationalism. But it was a dispensationalism that applied to contemporary Israel the allegiance that really belonged only to Israel in its eschatological restoration. Ironically, that very unquestioning allegiance became the basis to some extent for those who currently are moving in the opposite direction. There’s a middle path that would be more constructive.
