Faydra Shapiro reviews Stephen Sizer

Faydra Shapiro of Wilfred Laurier University provides an excellent critique of Stephen Sizer’s Zion’s Christian Soldiers.

Here are some juicy quotes, but read it all!

Rather than simple anti-Semitism, his work expresses something more complex, deeper, and ultimately more terrifying—a sincere, theological, Christian anti-Judaism. In several instances the reader hardly knows whether to laugh or cry.


It would be remiss not to mention here that Stephen Sizer is a man familiar with controversy. A Church of England vicar, the author has been accused of connections with known figures in the American far right and the world of Holocaust denial, which he categorically denies having engaged in knowingly.

    Oh what a gem, and so pleased to see it was first published by the Society of Biblical Literature 🙂
