This book makes the fascinating assertion that the restorationist tradition, if effaced, did continue through the 18th century and acts as a link between the earlier and later phases. In lucid writing, Immanuel traces the link between English Protestantism and Judaism back to the Reformation and Henry VIII seeking Old Testament/Jewish support for his divorce. The unfolding story of Puritanism and its links with Judaism from then on is convincingly laid out. There is much to be learnt about the main theme as it is cogently spelled out from the Reformation to Puritanism all the way through the 18th century.
[W]hat Immanuel maintains is that Restorationism was a necessary but not sufficient condition for the issuance of the declaration. The immense amount of evidence that he brings to bear in support of this proposition makes it very difficult to disagree with him. In any case, his well-written and accessible book merits the serious attention of every individual who is interested in the history behind the Balfour Declaration.
