From Puritan days to President Trump, America has been a haven to the Jewish people and a stalwart ally of Israel.
Why Israel Matters to America tells the story of this special friendship. It introduces you to figures like founding father Elias Boudinot who mused that the "very purpose" God "raised up these United States" was to help bring His "beloved people to their own land." You’ll meet William Blackstone, a wealthy Chicago businessman called the “Father of Zionism.” And you’ll learn why President Harry Truman overruled his own State Department to support statehood for Israel.
Plus, you’ll gain fresh insight from Scripture for why America, as well as individual believers, must stand with Israel today. Why Israel Matters to America is our special thank you when you give a gift of $35 or more.
