an insight into the mind of a Christian Zionist Aug 3, 2008
Just as most Americans look at Islamic radicals and ask "Why do they hate us?", Jews look at Christian Zionists and ask "Why do they love us?" Some believe that the only reason for Christian support of Israel and Jews is that Jews play a crucial role in the "End Times" theology of some Protestants. And to be sure, this is one of Hagee's motives: he asserts that shortly before the Second Coming, "144,000 Jewish people [will] have a supernatural revelation of the identity of Jesus Christ as Messiah." [What happens to the rest? Hagee is a bit fuzzy on this point.]
But contrary to liberal myth, End Times theology is not, repeat not, the only motive for Hagee's philo-Semitism. To oversimplify a bit, Hagee interprets the Bible (both Old and New Testaments) to mean that Divine love for the Jewish people is boundless, and that as a result God favors Gentiles who favors Jews, and punishes Gentiles who harm Jews and/or seek to dispossess them from all or part of the land of Israel.
Although we Jews are temporarily "blinded" (according to Hagee) to Jesus's status as Messiah, Hagee interprets Romans 11 to mean that this is a necessary part of the Divine plan.
Since I don't share Hagee's religious assumptions, I express no opinion as to the correctness of his interpretations; I leave that task to people far more familiar with the Christian Bible than I.
Nevertheless, I do give this book only 3 stars, partially because I don't quite understand its organization: the first few chapters of the book [which discuss Islamic extremism] seems to me to be only marginally relevant to his defense of Jews. From the standpoint of 2008, the first half of the book seems hysterical. He claims that Iranian entry into the nuclear club is imminent- yet Iran still has no nuclear weapons. He suggests that the U.S is chock-full of sleeper cells and that al-Qaeda already has nuclear weapons- yet nothing resembling a major terrorist attack has happened in almost seven years. He claims that Islam is inherently intolerant- yet fails to explain why, during the Middle Ages, the Ottoman Empire was less anti-Semitic than much of Christian Europe.
Don't Waste Your Money Jun 24, 2008
First of all I got this book from my public library. There are several things wrong with this book. 1. God is not a Republican, nor is He a Democrat. 2. Armageddon or Har-Magedon is God's war upon all nations.(Dan. 2:44) 3. Har-Magedon is not a nuclear war between mankind's nations. 4. The United States nor any other nation can not stop Har-Magedon. 5. There is no such place as hell fire. The Hebrew word sheol and Greek word Hades translated hell in some Bibles is the common grave of mankind. That is the death inherited from Adam.(Eccl. 9:5,10; Psa.146:4; Eze. 18:4) The Greek word gehenna means everlasting destruction.(Matt. 10:28)The lake of fire in Revelation is symbolic of eternal destruction.(Rev. 20:10,14) v. 14 explains :this means the second death which means everlasting destruction.Death & Hades are thrown there. Are Death & Hades concious beings that can suffer eternally? 6. Since Pentecost 33 C.E. God has been using the Christian congregation, Not the nation of Israel or any of man's governments.( Acts 2:22-36;Phil.2: 9-11) If you want accurate information see Jehovah's Witnesses.

John Hagee does not always follow the bible, but interprets it to suit his own motivations.
