There are 1.3 billion Muslims--Islam is a strong voice. Three movements within Islam are in place to change the world forever, for good or evil: Radicals, who believe violent jihad is the way; Reformers, who believe Islam is good but democracy is the way forward; and Revivalists, who believe Jesus is the answer, not Islam.
Rosenberg provides a comprehensive work on the Islamic Revolution--its past, present, and future. He draws from the Qu'ran, testimonials and textbooks to outline the core beliefs of each movement.
The top five scenarios that trouble the world's military and intelligence leaders are based on the jihadist movement obtaining nuclear capabilities. Iran's President Ahmadinejad, a catalyst and powerful influence, is driven by the conviction that Allah is holding him personally accountable to destroy Judeo-Christian civilization.
In the midst of the volatile situation in the epicenter, is another powerful influence--the Revivalist movement. Millions of Muslims have converted to Christ in recent years. The testimonies are gripping.
Rosenberg has been invited numerous times to speak with congressmen, senators, high-ranking military and intelligence leaders, and foreign ambassadors. Recently, he addressed a group of 125 Pentagon officials on why Ahmadinejahd's eschatology (end time theology) is driving Iranian foreign policy. Rosenberg's presentation is in the book.
"Understanding these three Revolutionary movements--including the crises they are responding to and the answers they are offering--is of absolutely critical importance. Those who ignore these trends do so at their peril."
The three main breakdowns here are as follows:
The Radicals - "Islam is the answer, and Jihad is the way"
The Reformers - "Islam is the answer, but Jihad is not the way"
The Revivalists - "Islam is not the answer, and Jihad is not the way; Jesus is the way"
Our media tends to focus on the first, as it's the most sensationalistic. Rosenberg lays a solid groundwork for the theology behind jihad, and how it is justified. He also makes it easy to understand why this radical form of Islam is so appealing to those of a young age, who want to strike back at the injustices they see leveled at their countries and belief systems. He also goes deeper than typical media coverage, explaining how the "Twelfth Imam" theology of Iran's president makes that country an especially destabilizing force to those around them.Read more ›
I have never quite understood the Muslim culture, why some call it the 'peaceful' religion and yet I see terrorist, etc. This book has opened my eyes to their way of life, Iran's leader Ahmadinejad and his feeling that he must be considered their Iman of prophecy, etc. Rosenberg has met with many who understand this, and others who are thankfully being led out of this radical culture and into the truth of Jesus Christ. He has shown me as no other author the horrible deceit these people grow up in, and the huge destruction they plan to unlease on our world. Unfortunately, he has also shown me the great concern for our nation whose 'socialist' leaders from Obama to many in congress, have either decided to ignore or embraced Islam and chosen to have 'peace talks' with terrorists. I suggest everyone read this book for a greater understanding of Muslim's beliefs and where our world is headed.
