Editor Gerald McDermott and book contributors Robert Nicholson of the Philos Project and Mark Tooley of the Institute on Religion and Democracy explain the ideas behind the book, “The New Christian Zionism: Fresh Perspectives on Israel and the Land.”
Each summer, the Philos Project takes a class of 20 bright rising leaders on the seminar of a lifetime: two weeks of intense learning in New York, followed by engaging immersive learning in Poland, Israel and Jordan.
Prayer is one of the most powerful ways the American church can support persecuted Christians around the world. Today hundreds of thousands of Christians in the Middle East are displaced from their homes, sold into slavery, tortured, and killed for their faith. It is our responsibility to come to their aid.

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
— Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Thank you to the Philos Project for an excellent, unique experience in Israel. I greatly appreciate the fair and insightful way they handled complex issues, and am especially grateful at how careful they were to show us the people – the real people, the diverse people – who live in that land. Philos is working hard to create a new conversation about Israel and the Middle East and they’re doing a terrific job. I commend their work wholeheartedly.
