The Chosen Peoples
America, Israel, and the Ordeals of Divine Election --
The origins, consequences, and attendant burdens of a belief central to the identities of Americans and Israelis--that they are God's favored people. 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 chosenness seriously, wrestling with its meaning, and assuming its responsibilities can both nations thrive.
