Abstract [en]

This is a study on how ideas of peace, expressed in Christian Zionist literature, are articulated in Christian Zionist public gatherings in Sweden and Germany.

Christian Zionism literature demonstrates very little hope for peace. Arabs are depicted as an obstacle to peace, and inferior. Jews are given appreciative attributes and seen as God’s tool in history, thus instrumentalized. The readership of this literature is required to pray for Israel, but dissuaded from supporting peace initiatives, and from saving Jews on Armageddon.

This study scrutinizes whetherto what extent, and how these ideas on peace are expressed in public gatherings in Swedish and German Christian Zionism. Using participant observations, we study what is being said, both from the platform and from partakers, in hymns, prayers, sermons, and what is being conveyed implicitly, including symbols used, signs of emotions, supporting humming in prayer, and centres of attention and authority, and offerings.
