May 16, 2013 - The Chosen people, America, Israel, and the ordeals of Divine Election by Todd Gitlin and Liel leibovitz
The Chosen Peoples delivers a bold new take on
both nations’ histories. It shows how deeply the idea of closeness has affected
not only their enthusiasts but also their antagonists. It digs deeply beneath
the superficialities of headlines, the details of negotiations, the excuses and
justifications that keep cropping up for both nations’ successes and failures.
It shows how deeply ingrained is the idea of a chosen people in both nations’
histories—and yet how complicated that idea really is. And it offers interpretations
of closeness that both nations dearly need in confronting their present-day
quandaries. Weaving together history, theology, and politics, The Chosen
Peoples vividly retells the dramatic story of two nations bound together by
a wild and sacred idea, takes unorthodox perspectives on some of our time’s
most searing conflicts, and offers an unexpected conclusion: only by taking the
idea of closeness seriously, wrestling with its meaning, and assuming its
responsibilities can both nations thrive.
