Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Known best for his fiction centered in the Middle East and based in Christian end times beliefs, Rosenberg's nonfiction behemoth will be a bestseller among evangelicals. Rigorous research, travel and interviews with hundreds of Muslim, Jewish and Christian leaders lends credibility to this survey of the spectrum of beliefs that drive foreign policy in nations such as Iran, on which the book focuses. Rosenberg divides Muslims into three types. Radical Islamists will stop at nothing short of dominating the world or destroying those who believe otherwise. Reformers believe radical Muslims have hijacked peaceful Islam for their own power-hungry and violent ends. Revivalists are Muslims or those living in predominantly Muslim countries who believe Islam is not the answer but that Jesus is the way. Rosenberg challenges Islamic eschatology without adequately comparing parallel Christian views. On the other hand, he is one of a few evangelicals who will put quotes from the Qur'an in context, has traveled widely and interviewed global leaders. This is one of the best primers for evangelical Christians to understand political Islam in the Middle East. (Mar. 10)

From the Inside Flap

Excerpts from Inside The Revolution: The Followers of Jihad: On April 1, 1979, Iran became the first Islamic republic in history. Three decades later, the shock waves from the Iranian Revolution are still being felt around the globe [and] we are rapidly approaching the most dangerous moment in the history of the Iranian Revolution. Iran's senior leaders have stated publicly that the end of the world is "imminent..,."They are feverishly trying to build, buy or steal nuclear weapons....Iran, however, is not the only threat. Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda terrorist network remain a clear and present danger to U.S. national security.... What the Radicals need most is Western ignorance, apathy, and lack of moral clarity. If the West can be lulled to sleep...then the Radicals will soon be able to pull off a series of attacks that make 9/11 pale by comparison and could leave millions dead. The Followers of Jefferson: "Aren't there any Muslims out there who think the Radicals are crazy and are willing to fight back against the jihadists?" I am often asked. "Where are the Muslim leaders who are promoting freedom and opportunity and trying to create and expand democracy, as difficult as that may be in the modern Middle East?.,."Here are the answers: "Yes, absolutely," and "They're out there, but they don't get nearly enough attention..,."While not all Reformers are full-blown "Jeffersonian democrats," a growing number of Muslim leaders are, in fact, seeking to follow and emulate Thomas Jefferson's teachings and example....And they are not simply talking about the power of representative government; they are actually gaining real political power and wielding game-changing influence in criticalcountries in the Middle East. The Followers of Jesus: You rarely hear about it on the news. But the big, untold story is that more Muslims are coming to faith in Jesus Christ today than at any other time in human history....During the course of interviewing more than 150 Christian leaders in the epicenter, I have been able to assemble enough data and anecdotal evidence to paint a picture of how powerfully the God of the Bible is moving to draw Muslims into His family....The head of one leading Iranian ministry told me: "Based on all the things we are seeing inside Iran today, I personally believe that if every Iranian who secretly believes in Jesus could come forward right now and declare his or her faith publicly, the number would top a million." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Without this book, the Western mind cannot begin to comprehend the serious threat that radical Islam poses to the world. This book explains the driving forces behind the critical headlines and global crises we face.

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."

I got the chance to read Inside the Revolution: How the Followers of Jihad, Jefferson & Jesus Are Battling to Dominate by Joel C. Rosenberg recently, which was a real treat. Rosenberg spends most of his time analyzing Middle East affairs from the perspective of end-times Christian theology. He's also written a number of political novels centered around Islamic themes, many of which have been eerily played out for real on the world stage, often only months after the book has been released. Inside the Revolution is a non-fiction analysis of what is happening in the Islamic Revolution, what mindsets are driving the power struggle, and what it means for the US and other world powers. While you may not agree with all the conclusions, Inside the Revolution will add to your overall education of the situation.

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.

Awesome book; I've read all of Joel Rosenberg's books and found none of them lacking. He has helped me to learn of the current national affairs that almost ALL the media has ignored or been too swayed to see or write. I applaud him on his work, and I also feel that he has had and shared many of the audiences with foreign and homeland leaders. Fox has done well in this area, but CNN and others have bought into the Kool Aid. We need well informed books such as this to give us insight into our current situations, for unfortunately, we are not hearing it from our leaders or media. Rosenberg writes very understandably and gives us the biblical and the current world affairs, which are happening so quickly I am thankful he has a website that can also be checked for daily updates. I would suggest this book to everyone, who, like me, want truth, yet cannot decifer nor depend on getting it from the media. Rosenberg does not slam others, he simply speaks the truth and has an uncanny way of projecting it before it plays out.

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.
