Evangelical Christian Leaders Challenge Christian Zionist Theology

Over 100 evangelical, Christian Presbyterian theologians, including the highly respected, Dr. RC Sproul, were signatories to "An Open Letter to Evangelicals and Other Interested Parties: The People of God, the Land of Israel, and the Impartiality of the Gospel." They asserted that: "At the heart of the political commitments in question are two fatally flawed propositions. First, some are teaching that God's alleged favor toward Israel today is based upon ethnic descent rather than upon the grace of Christ alone, as proclaimed in the Gospel. Second, others are teaching that the Bible's promises concerning the land are fulfilled in a special political region or "Holy Land," perpetually set apart by God for one ethnic group alone. As a result of these false claims, large segments of the evangelical community, our fellow citizens, and our government are being misled with regard to the Bible's teachings regarding the people of God, the land of Israel, and the impartiality of the Gospel." If you're looking for a well reasoned, biblical response to pre-millenial dispensationalism (sometimes known as Christian Zionism or Neo-Christianity). This letter is worth studying.
