After a successful U.S. Tour in which the film was screened at various Universities and Churches throughout the United States, including Pepperdine University, Point Loma Nazarene University, California Baptist and others, the film tour of "With God On Our Side" now moves to the United Kingdom and Ireland, which will include stops at the Holyrood - Scottish Parliament and Northern Ireland Assembly.

Porter Speakman, Jr. (Director / Producer) and Rev. Stephen Sizer (Author “Zion’s Christians Soldiers”) will be at each event and there will be a time for Q & A and discussion after each screening. On November 13, 2010 Ben White, author of "Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner's Guide" will join Speakman and Sizer at Cambridge University.

Synopsis:

"With God On Our Side" takes a look at the theology of Christian Zionism, which teaches that because the Jews are God's chosen people, they have a divine right to the land of Israel. Aspects of this belief system lead some Christians in the West to give uncritical support to Israeli government policies, even those that privilege Jews at the expense of Palestinians, leading to great suffering among Muslim and Christian Palestinians alike and threatening Israel's security as a whole.

This film demonstrates that there is a biblical alternative for Christians who want to love and support the people of Israel, a theology that doesn't favor one people group over another but instead promotes peace and reconciliation for both Jews and Palestinians.

What people are saying about “With God On Our Side”:

"The first obvious challenge of 'With God On Our Side' was articulating a perspective on the Middle East debate anchored in history and sound theology. Porter Speakman has not only met that test, but also delivered one of the clearest assessments of the struggle between Palestinians and Jews, and a US Church largely unaware of their complicity in the current conflict. Speakman's second more ominous challenge will be obtaining an audience, often steeped with established notions, open to wrestling with the film's content. The hope of an ongoing Christian presence in the Holy Land may depend on the success of his message... I dare anyone to see this film and remain unchanged." -- Steven W. Haas - Vice President/Chief Catalyst - World Vision United States

"This film is informative, it's inspiring, it's challenging and it summarizes in brilliant fashion, what the problem is and what needs to change in order to solve the problem. I don't know of anything quite like it - and I would have to say the church desperately needs it." -- Tony Campolo

4 Stars. "Christian Zionism is officially on notice..." Christianity Today, July 2010
