Item description for The Prophecy That Is Shaping History by Jon Mark Ruthven & Jon Mark Ruthven, Phd...
Overview Millions of Jews, Christians, and Muslims believe that a 2,500-year-old prophecy is about to be fulfilled: a global, apocalyptic jihad of many nations against the tiny state of Israel, whose recent re-emergence in its traditional land has sparked unrelenting rage and attack. Repeated resolutions passed in the United Nations reflect world-wide and nearly unanimous hostility against the so-called "Zionist entity"-even to the point of denying its right to exist. Most news media and political analysts seem unaware of the ancient prophecy that not only predicts this apocalyptic war, but also, amazingly, how this prophecy by Ezekiel (chapters 36-44) provides the scenario for numerous best-selling books in both the English-speaking and Muslim worlds! These best sellers not only describe this great conflagration, but actually also motivate their readers to prepare for it! The Prophecy That Is Shaping History represents a major advance in research and scholarship in examining the historical and contemporary impact of Ezekiel's prophecy on world events. This academic monograph also offers a wealth of new evidence in tracing the identities, origins, and ultimate destinies of the key nations of Ezekiel's prophecy who are seen to participate in what millions believe will be the most horrific battle the world will ever witness.

A Review from Jon Mark Ruthven's #1 Fan Nov 14, 2003
With all the hysteria and hype in the evangelical Christian world surrounding the end times, balanced biblical scholarship and research is greatly needed. This is precisely what Dr. Jon Mark Ruthven attempts to give in The Prophecy that is Shaping History. Ruthven's book examines the impact of Ezekiel 38 and 39 on American foreign policy and examines sociological and historical research in an attempt to identify Ezekiel's Rosh.
Personally, I appreciate Dr. Ruthven's commitment to biblical scholarship and solid research methodologies. This book is a tremendous resource for those in the field desiring more information about the field of eschatology. Though according to Ruthven the prophecy in Ezekiel is shaping history, but this book had not significantly shaped the emphasis of my personal theology which includes the love of God, Spirit-led evangelization, discipleship, and relationship with God and fellowman.
