A quote from Edward Said (page 91) best helps this bibliographer to make a brief description of this multidisciplinary work: “Neither Palestinian nor Israeli history at this point is a thing in itself, without the other. In so doing we will necessarily come up against the basic irreconcilability between the Zionist claim and Palestinian dispossession. The injustice done to the Palestinian s is constitutive of these two histories, as is also the effect of Western anti-Semitism and the Holocaust.”

Edited by authors associated with Sabeel and the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA), this title challenges the ethics and politics surrounding the Christian Zionist project.
Of these two collections of Zionist documents the first is described as “canonical,” and the second as the “Zionist Bible.” 20th century scholar and activist Arthur Hertzberg (who marched with Martin Luther King) published the first collection of Zionist documents in English in 1959, 8 years before Israel would reset the trajectory of Israeli -Palestinian conflict onto its current direction via the Six-Day War. Documents covered begin with Rabbi Yehuda Alkalai’s 1843 “The Third Redemption,” and extend to include David Ben-Gurion’s 1944 “The Imperatives of the Jewish Revolution.”
In the second collection, American Canadian scholar Gil Troy expands the range of documents to finish shortly before the volume’s publication in 2018. By the nature of the collections there is little if any room for debate regarding the supremacy of the Israeli state.
