Very detailed and good.

While I don't always agree with some of Perry's ideas, there's nothing really to complain about in this book. Rather than delve into reading too much into a Scripture, Perry takes the verses at their word here and shows how the religion of the antichrist will be Islam, and even gives ideas as to how it might happen.
Something else he does here that I haven't seen done in any other books like it is how he shows from the Koran exactly how they perceive their coming Messiah. I had no idea how closely paralleled many of the concepts were about the Tribulation. The Muslims believe their messiah will rule 7 years and die, while the Christians also have this viewpoint (though not seeing him as the messiah, but as the antichrist). There are several other really powerful points Perry brings home (including his take on what the mark of the beast will be, and it makes a lot of sense) that show how the Muslims will continue to be fooled during the Tribulation into thinking things are progressing as they should for their victory, never realizing the prophecies were given hundreds of years earlier in the Bible with a much different outcome.
If you want to know more about this sort of thing, then this book is amazing. Unfortunately, it's SO truthful that you might have to fight a fearful feeling as you realize what the future holds. It's a bleak picture from Perry's perspective, but it is a Biblical view. Be prepared to pray often afterward.
