America's Road to Jerusalem: The Impact of the Six-Day War on Protestant Politics

This study examines the role of the Six-Day War in American Protestant politics and culture.
The author argues that the conflict shifted the balance of power between Evangelicals and Modernists back towardAmerican foreign policy toward the Arab-Israeli conflict, culminating in the Trump Administration’s 2017 recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital—and the domestic Evangelical communities who supported it—have direct correlation with the long-term consequences of the 1967 Six-Day War.
