'A Fool for Christ': Sense-Making and Negotiation of Identity in the Life Story of a Christian Soldier
Centre for Theology and Religious Studies, Lund University.
2014 (English)In: Comprehending Christian Zionism: perspectives in comparison / [ed] G. Gunner & R. O. Smith, Minneapolis: Fortress Press, 2014, Vol. s. 33-59, p. 33-59Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter presents a narrative analysis of the life story of a Swedish Pentecostal who decided to join the Israeli Defense Forces out of his conviction that God wanted him to protect the chosen people. His story is treated as an example of lived Christian Zionism; as one of many manifestations that contemporary Christian affection for Israel can take. The analysis focuses on the central narrative pattern of calling-test of faith-confirmation, 'Jacob's' sense-making of his life choices, and the negotiation of his identity in relation to larger religious and cultural narratives.
