Editorial Reviews


"Earth Shattering.  A must read." -Kade Hawkins, Prophecy News Watch

"This book is refreshingly crisp--a must read for serious Christians and anyone who desires to understand the challenges facing us on our increasingly turbulent horizon." -Chuck Missler, Internationally Recognized Speaker and Prophecy Expert 

"A most engaging book... There is much to commend the argument for a final Islamic Empire rather than a Western or Roman Empire in the Day of the Lord." -Walter C. Kaiser Jr. President Emeritus Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"Pours brand new wine into some ancient wine skins, all with rational and easily available biblical underpinning." -Charlie Daniels, American musical legend

"Prophecy teachers would do well to ask if Joel is not giving us a new way to look at the prophecies of the last days.  There is a wealth of evidence and of coherent fit that should cause us all to re-think.  It is a credible view..." --Dan Juster, Founding President, Union Messianic Jewish Congregations, Director of Tikkun International

Having read Joel's previous works, and being well versed in the "Islamic end times" theory, I have to admit I wasn't sure what more he could say on the subject that would be new or enlightening. I expected that there would be substantial rehashing of his earlier books. Upon reading the book, I found that although there isn't much in it that I would consider "new", it was written extremely well. It is concise, clear, and most importantly compassionate. His first work, "The Islamic Antichrist", was a great book to establish the theory. The second book co-authored with Walid Shoebat "God's War on Terror" is an all encompassing, detail oriented, exhaustive study of all things about the theory, history, and peoples associated with it. THIS book is aimed at 2 primary groups: those who are already interested in Bible prophecy but unfamiliar with his views, and especially at his critics (particularly those who believe in a European Antichrist). He addresses their criticisms in this book eloquently, fairly, and completely. But one of my favorite things about this book is that he does it with respect. His tone is conciliatory, and friendly. He also stresses the importance over and over again of praying for Muslims. Overall I came away from this book feeling like his ideas and theories on the end times were more relevant, and more likely than those of the European Antichrist model.

Format: Hardcover
This well-written book is the perfect follow-up to Joel's two prior books, The Islamic Antichrist and God's War On Terror (with Walid Shoebat). In Mideast Beast, Joel takes you step by step through prophecies in Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, and Revelation to show how and why the Antichrist will come out of the Middle East, and not from Europe. When you understand what the Old Testament prophets were actually talking about, there really is no doubt about where the Antichrist will come from. It is quite amazing to watch all of this coming together right in front of our eyes. Events taking place in the Middle East are not about Democracy, they are about re-establishing the Islamic Caliphate (a revived Islamic Empire).
Yet we still see all of the mainstream 'preachers' talking about a Revived Roman Empire and a European Antichrist. The Bible simply does not teach that. The Church in America is looking in the wrong direction, and many are going to be deceived. Please read this book, and then give it to people you know. We must try to wake up the Church, many of whom believe that it really doesn't matter, because they will be raptured out before anything bad happens. The Bible doesn't teach that, either. We will be here for much of the tribulation, and we must prepare ourselves in order to be able to endure to the end. Thank you, Joel, for your wisdom, your courage, and your humility.

Format: Hardcover
After reading Mr. Richardson's first book, I was impressed by the compelling use of sincere and exhaustive Biblical study to come to the conclusions in the book.

Though many folks will be intimidated by the study of End Times, or Eschatology - Richardson has created an approachable body of research for beginners as well as for those who've been studying for decades.

I can't say enough how much this book is a worthy endeavor for anyone who considers Biblical study a valuable habit. Take the time to read this book. Richardson impresses me with his ferocious and fearless communication style, while maintaining a tender-hearted respect for both the reader and the greater issues of the Bible - salvation, grace, etc.

A must read.

Format: Hardcover
Provocative, well written, and easy to follow! The reader is both challenged to guard against carrying an antagonism toward Muslims, and warned against living in naivete with regards to the true ideology of Islam. Joel Richardson takes the Scriptures in their original intent, allowing them to speak for themselves. The book closes with a strong call to both pray for and love Muslims, as opposed to alienate them in disdain or live in fear of them. If you want to love people without compromising truth, this book is for you!

I very much looked forward to reading this latest book by Joel Richardson. He is one of the few Christian writers so far who seems to have eschatological views that are similar to mine. However, I am only able to give this book three or four stars rather than five. In the end, I gave it four because I believe Mr. Richardson has great insight because he sees that the Kingdom of the Antichrist will be Middle Eastern rather than Western. However, as I read this book, I was disappointed that he did not go far enough in departing from some of the traditional views of Daniel's prophecies. One example is that he continues to interpret the metals in the statue of Daniel chapter 2 as identical to the animals of chapter 7. He glossed over some important differences between the two visions. Moreover, he never considered the possibility that the three ribs in the mouth of the bear might be the same as the three horns that are uprooted by the little horn. To his credit, he does mention that Daniel chapter 2 is Babylon-centric rather than Jerusalem-centric (Daniel 2 was written in Aramaic rather than Hebrew) and that Rome never conquered Babylon in the prophetic period (i.e., the period prior to the formation of the Church in Acts 2). That fact is completely ignored by those who take the traditional revived Roman Empire interpretation. Another example of his sticking with traditional views is that he takes the traditional interpretation that Daniel chapter 8 refers a to a historical Greek-Syrian ruler rather than a future ruler even though Daniel 8:17 specifically says the vision pertains to the "time of the end." I do not think the time period of the Greek-Syrian king Antiochus IV qualifies as the "time of the end.Read more ›
