Amazon.com Review

How is America tied into ancient biblical prophecies? According to author Michael Evans, a fundamentalist Christian minister, biblical prophets already predicted that America is doomed to collapse unless its government stops accommodating the Arab world for the sake of oil and instead offers full military and diplomatic support to Israel. He believes that God wants Israel to have full control of the West Bank and Gaza, and Americans are risking God's wrath by not fully supporting this biblical mandate. Evans also theorizes that much of America's problems--including the attack of 9-11--are indications of God's fury over America's split allegiance between the two famous descendents of Abraham: Ishmael and Isaac. "We are caught in a tug of war between two brothers--between oil, political expedience, and conscience in many ways--and it our decisions and polices concerning these two brothers that will determine whether the United States will survive or go the way of the Roman Empire," he writes. Evans's prophetic foundation begins with the parable of the fig tree (Matthew 24:32-44), in which he interprets the various signs Jesus gave his disciples to mark "the final age and his return." Obviously, the Bible can be interpreted many ways, and Evans uses 17 chapters to weave in interpretations of scripture that support his theory that America faces a mammoth choice--ruin or salvation. Although actual quotes from scripture are rather sparse throughout the book, he concludes with a five-page index of "Ancient Prophecies" that indirectly support his theory. One caveat--Evans (Beyond Iraq) does not hide his vehement anti-Muslim leanings. This book will probably be offensive to Christians who practice religious tolerance and lean toward a more-inclusive solution to American diplomacy in the Middle East. --Gail Hudson

From Publishers Weekly

Does America have an explicit role in biblical prophecy? Absolutely, says Evans, a journalist and popular Christian speaker who has come to believe that America is at a crossroads predicted in the Bible. Speaking from a deeply conservative perspective that lauds unqualified support of Israel and decries the "myth that Islam is a peaceful religion," Evans explains that the only reason why Islamic terrorists hate Americans is "simply because they hate us"-an unconvincing tautological argument that ignores the history of several ill-advised U.S. interventions in the Middle East. In 17 chapters, Evans employs a rather tortured biblical hermeneutic to persuade readers of the need for war in Iraq-and a future war with Syria-as well as for stepped-up support for Israel to conform with biblical prophecy. He often ties Muslims with Nazis, arguing that Muslims have adopted Hitler’s campaign to exterminate Jews. This book may resonate with ultra-conservative readers who already believe that America is the center of the cosmos. Other Christians will be alarmed by the way it promotes hate-filled stereotypes of Muslims even while it argues that Muslims are dangerous precisely because they promote hate-filled stereotypes of Jews.

I read this book in 2 days, I just didn't want to put it down! I am so grateful to Mike Evans for clearly showing our nation's history, and our place in Prophecy. Because of Mike's experience in the Middle East and as an advisor in Washington he has a unique view of our political actions with the founding of Israel in modern times, and our government approach to a solution for Israel and Palstine by trying to appease all sides and protect our own interests. Mike is able to point out what we have said publicly and what we have done behind the scenes, and what scripture says. We need to take a true stand, as Lincoln did. We need to do it before it is too late. Mike's reference of history, past and current, and knowledge of scripture make it clear that we need to squarely stand behind Israel. We need to repent as a country, and we need to pray for our President and leaders to take righteous, prayerful stands all over the world. This is a time for Christians in this country that may not come again!! I am so grateful for this book! For me, Mike is like a voice in wilderness! Read the book, let God speak to your heart!!

I recently completed reading this entire book. I believe the author is correct in his assessment of the relationship between the U.S. and Israel and how we, as a nation, have both blessed and cursed that nation during our history, especially during the past 100 years. It is the best thing I've read which puts the U.S., our past, present, and future actions into perspective with regard to Israel. The scripture found in Genesis 12:1-3 is as true today as when God gave it to Abraham. The U.S. and its leaders observe it or ignore it to our national honor, or our national shame.

I thought it necessary to write the following to the individuals that have stated that the people that have given this book a 5 star rating don't have a clue.

1) I am a Born Again Christian who has studied Revelation in several indepth courses. The one question many of us have is "where does the United States fit into the end times?" Michael's book does not as some have said, "add to the book of Revelation",i.e.,he did not actually go in and rewrite this book of the Bible. Instead, he has used his knowledge of the Bible, and the leading of the Holy Spirit, to investigate and document his findings on American history and how could possible fit into Bible prophecies. I,like most readers, do not read Michael's book "in place of the Bible." I read it just like I would a book by Billy Graham on "how to lead a more godly life." The Bible is still the absolute. It is still the only Book I believe is totally God-Breathed.

2) No one could tell me to give a high rating to a book unless I wanted to and agree that the book is worth the 5-stars. I did read the book - I couldn't put it down - and it is well worth the 5-star rating.

3) We, as Christians, do not do things to "receive blessings from God" (as a few have stated). We do God's will because God loved us so much that he sent his Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross to save us from our sins. If we accept Him (Jesus Christ) as our personal Savior and turn from our sins, He will save us. (That in it's self is the ultimate blessing from God, isn't it?) However, there are many, many, scriptures in the Bible that state, blessed are they that ..... Wouldn't these verses in the Bible make you, as a Christian, want to do the things that please God, which would result in a blessing from God?

This book is a major eye opener to how we the american people have treated God's covenant people throughout our history.We have much to repent for. It is absolutly vital that we stand behind and align ourselves with Israel.

If we refuse, our own future may well be at risk.

Thank you Mr. Evans for boldly proclaiming the truth!

I cannot see the negative rewiew some have given this book, I really wonder if they did any research before giving the review? the documented facts goes back to the times mentioned and are recorded for anyone to see for themselves,I lived at a time when some of the issues were up front, a time some seem to forget or wishes not to talk about, It is well worth reading and I think right on target

Those who vehemently oppose this book either do not find the holy Word of God to be true and accurate or they or are not willing to consider what role America will play in the soon coming future. While there are always uncertainties in the future, I for one am not willing to put my head in the sand or deny the realities of the world we live in. The simple fact is we all need Jesus, He is the only truth, and He is coming back to reign over His creation SOON. The biblical prophesies will come to pass whether or not we believe them. Many of them have already been fulfilled.

I find this book to be historically accurate and very interesting. History does repeat itself therefore why shouldn't we consider the past as we look toward the future.

As I have read most of the reviews of one and two stars, it became apparent to me that many have totally missed the whole point of this book. Yes, God is a just and loving God. He is Love. However, He will judge His creation - that includes you and me. We all will give an account. We all have a part to play and personally, I hope that more and more of us get the point. We must consider ourselves - the condition of our souls. We all should be aware of what the author is saying so that we can soberly examine ourselves and take a godly, righteous position. "The prayers of a righteous man avails much". How can we pray if we're not informed? That my fellow souls IS the point of this book!!!
