Straight White American Jesus

A podcast on religion and politics hosted by Daniel Miller and Bradley Onishi, ex-ministers who are now scholars of religion.

Evangelicals, Christian Zionism, and Israel

In light of recent events we are re-releasing Dan’s interview with Chrissy Stroop, who helps explain the Evangelical obsession with Israel. One of the main themes is how Evangelicals profess love for Israel based on their need for it theologically, but rarely attend to the actual lives or politics of Jewish people. They explain how this works through an examination of supersessionism and Christian Zionism. This episode provides a background for why conservative Christians are so unquestionably pro-Israel even in times of conflict and war.
