This is not a well thought out book. There are better books out there to understand the crisis.
There are several things about this book that are good. First, Mark writes with a reader friendly, teaching style instead of the loud preachy style of someone like John Hagee. Two, his historical information about Persia and Babylon was presented in a memorable way. Third, the information on Iran was fair, informative, and quite possibly right as regards to their being a nuclear threat. Fourth, he at least makes an effort to deal with objections to his view of Ezekiel 38-39 and does not just assume that everyone is on board with him. I do think, however, that he is wrong when he says the "vast majority" of scholars see Ezekiel 38-39 as having a future literal fulfillment in the sense that they see Russia, Iran, etc, coming down to attack the modern day nation of Israel. In fact, I think the only safe thing to say there is that the vast majority of dispensational scholars see it as fulfilled in this manner. For a past fulfillment, he seems to indicate that only preterists take a past fulfillment view of this passage, but that is far from accurate. One does not have to be a preterist, to believe that Ezekiel 38-39 has been fulfilled or all of the OT for that matter.Read more ›
The thrust of his book should have been on the role of Iran and its anti-semitic cohorts, namely Russia and most of the Middle East, in prophetic endtimes. Hitchcock does get around to it eventually but not until he has exhausted the readers patience with what has been and continues to be news concerning Iran's diabolic designs. He could have gotten to Ezekiel 38&39,as it relates to Iran, much sooner than all the rehashed verbiage that preceded it.
Next time, Mr. Hitchcock, get to the point. John Hagee's "Jerusalem Countdown" does a much better job of doing just that.
