Item description for The Last Days (Last Jihad) by Joel C. Rosenberg...
Overview In this sequel to the "New York Times" bestseller "The Last Jihad," Baghdad lies in ruins and the eyes of the world are on Jerusalem as Jon Bennett, senior White House advisor, arrives to meet with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
Publishers Description Osama bin Laden is dead. Saddam's regime is buried. Baghdad lies in ruins. Now the eyes of the world are on Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy, two senior White House advisors, as they arrive in the Middle East to offer a historic Arab-Israeli peace plan and the American president's new vision of freedom and democracy. But in the shadows lie men whose hearts are filled with evil--men for whom the prospect of peace goes against everything they believe. And soon one terrifying scheme after another begins to unfold. As Jon and Erin face a battle for control of Jerusalem and the Holy Land and an Iraqi plan to rebuild ancient Babylon, they can't help but wonder: Are such signs evidence that they are living in the last days before the return of Christ?

YOU'LL STOP WATCHING TV FOR AWHILE Mar 14, 2007
Everything good you've read and heard about this novel is true. Forget trying to get anything else done until you finish it! Great story line!
Page turner from the start Mar 9, 2007
I started reading Rosenberg's Ezekiah Code first, so I am reading in reverse order. But, I have really enjoy both of these books. Last Days is an action packed work of fiction with a realistic background of history, politics and religion. I highly recommend it.
Gripping Fiction yet mirror of today Mar 9, 2007
Joel Rosenberg takes his depth of knowledge of the bible, and in particular books Isiah, Daniel and Revelation, and lays out a very plausible sequence of events that you may ultimately read in the news headlines someday. Gripping.
Loved this book Mar 8, 2007
I have now read five books by Joel Rosenberg and loved every one of them. He is more current than the nightly news broadcasts. Perhaps the politicians in Washington should follow his lead!!
Disappointing Mar 4, 2007
My family enjoyed the plot lines and the Biblical connections that came about from time to time. I originally bought all of Joel's books (5) on audio cds so we could listen to during drive times in the car. I wanted my family to hear some background and achieve another level of understanding with regards to Iraq, Iran, Islam, Christianity, Judaism, the European Union, Israel, and the prophetic possibilties in the Holy Scriptures we call the Bible. We want them to understand why things are happening/playing out the way they are, and why which parties are involved.
Joel's books do this, giving you ideas of possible scenarios with regards to actual Biblical Prophecy. HOWEVER, as soon as we finish each audiobook, we will throw them away. Why? Brother Joel obviously is using the flawed undertaking that in order to reach the "lost" in the world (i.e. non-Believers), we need to put a little sin into something Biblical in order to make it palatible. Sadly, he ignores the Bible's direct explanations that a little leaven leavens the whole loaf. For years we've watched people fall out of the God of Israel's Holiness and play fake Christianity because they were "brought into the fold" by mixed modes of worldy/secular verions of Christianity. People are brought into the fold with a little leaven, and they live their "faith" out with leaven continually existing in various areas of their lives, having no problem with the sins, having no desire to be set-apart/kadosh/holy. Everybody's a Christian, just as long as they profess to be.... The violent content is a bit too discriptive at times for entertainment, though not unthinkable. FREQUENT use of the "hell" swear-word-fashion is quite uncomfortable. Finally, taking the use of "God" as slang term and in emphasis mode for emotive moments that obviously don't involve talking TO or ABOUT God Himself, is unnerving. "Hell" and "God" are used in completely unBiblical manners. Sometimes you'll "hear" both a professing Believer as WELL AS a non-Believer using these terms. Neither is acceptable in books written by Believers. I was quite embarased when it began happening over and over, and so was my family when we heard these books on audio cds. Un-charateristic for a Godly-man, such as Brother Joel professes to be.
Don't buy...violence and swearing/slang/blasphemy are frequent or inappropriate.
