Then I noticed then this book, which is a sort of "cliff notes" to Rosenberg's novels, providing key highlights and most importantly, the basis for his novels. After reading a few sections, I found myself being quite impressed at the content. Before long, I was hooked; this is a very well done book. The thoughts are clear, speculation is generally noted (rather than affirmed as fact), copious references are provided, and I believe that the book is generally faithful to its Biblical roots.
The central theme of the book is the literal fulfillment of the prophecies of Ezekiel in chapters 37/38. The author takes these prophecies, and tries to interpret them in light of current world events. When he wrote the novels, some of his "predictions" had apparently not yet been fact, so that in some ways his views offer some testable hypotheses. Rosenberg is not a "date setter (thank G-d)," though he believes that we are rapidly coming to the climax of these prophecies. Especially important is his use of primary sources; in most cases he talked to many "in the know" people across the word, and didn't just quote sound bytes from the internet/TV/radio. The book as a very investigative feel to it, and the high quality of the effort here is rather evident.Read more ›
Absolutely an excellent book on a very delicate topic that is affecting and will affect our world. Rosenberg shows us the power of the Scripture in understanding the past and the present, and even more important: in predicting the future. A Thought-provoking reading that is well worth for Christian Readers and any reader as well.
With everything that is going on in the middle east and around the world, in such places like Iran, Iraq, Russia, and China: the invasion of Iraq and the violence of the post Sadam's Iraq, Iran's president vows to wipe Israel, and more it is nice to have the analysis and the point of view of a well respected Christian writer.
Rosenberg has become well-known for having a seemingly uncanny knack of writing fictional novels with events that later (or often sooner) occur in real life. This book is his first venture into non-fiction, and he tries to explain how he comes up with many of his ideas for his novels and presents his theory of an impending earthly calamity (though this is not the final battle of Armageddon). Unfortunately, the introduction and first few chapters of the book come off as being self-congratulatory advertisements for his novels. Also, Rosenberg writes as though he were letting the reader in on some big secrets that he has gleaned from statesmen and church leaders in various parts of the world, but he tells us nothing that we can't get from reading a newspaper or watching television newscasts.Read more ›
