Joel Rosenberg political thriller-chiller novels

Reader comment on item: James Baker's Terrible Iraq Report

Submitted by Lucy Chambers (United States), Dec 20, 2006 at 18:31

I read and enjoyed Joel Rosenberg's novels combining political events and Biblical scholarship and his new book explaining why his novels seemed a bit prophetic. I did not realize he was part of the Tim LaHaye/Left Behind series cohort when I read the books, but I do note that in the later novels Israel is basically alone and surrounded by its enemies, based on Ezekiel 38-39 interpretations. I mainly always think that apocalyptic events will be decided by Divine Providence (despite Achmadinejad's efforts to hurry up the 12th imam), but one cannot avoid noticing current events that seem in synch with Rosenberg's novels.

It would seem unthinkable to me that the US would ever desert Israel or act in such a way that Israel would logically be facing destruction- yet anti-Jewish feelings have evidently not been as high in Europe since the Nazi era, and younger people are reputedly fed such a diet of propaganda in schools and colleges around the world , along with a lack of study of history, that 'it' could well happen again.
