Carroll, James:
Jerusalem, Jerusalem: How the Ancient City Ignited Our Modern World - used book

1973, ISBN: 0547195613

ID: 5756629

James Carroll’s urgent, masterly Jerusalem, Jerusalem uncovers the ways in which the ancient city became, unlike any other in the world—reaching deep into our contemporary lives—an incendiary fantasy of a city. In Carroll’s provocative reading of the deep past, the Bible’s brutality responded to the violence that threatened Jerusalem from the start. Centuries later, the mounting European fixation on a heavenly Jerusalem sparked both anti-Semitism and racist colonial contempt. The holy wars of the Knights Templar burned apocalyptic mayhem into the Western mind. Carroll’s brilliant and original leap is to show how, as Christopher Columbus carried his own Jerusalemcentric worldview to the West, America too was powerfully shaped by the dream of the City on a Hill—from Governor Winthrop to Abraham Lincoln to Woodrow Wilson to Ronald Reagan. The nuclear brinksmanship of the 1973 Yom Kippur War helps prove his point: religion and violence fuel each other, with Jerusalem the ground zero of the heat. To the standard set by Constantine’s Sword, Jerusalem, Jerusalem is again a "rare book that combines searing passion . . . with a subject that has affected all our lives" (Chicago Tribune). americas,christian books and bibles,church history,general,history,history of religion,islam,israel,jewish,judaism Islam, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
