Item description for The Last Jihad (Last Jihad) by Joel C. Rosenberg...
Overview Jon Bennett is a senior White House advisor, but nothing has prepared him for the terror that he will face. Saddam Hussein dispatches his top hit men to assassinate the President of the United States. Iraqi terrorists spread carnage throughout London, Paris, and Riyadh . . . and the Butcher of Baghdad has a nuclear ace in his hand that he has not yet played.
Publishers Description Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy are two of the shrewdest strategists on Wall Street and close friends of the president of the United States. Their secret project: a billion-dollar oil deal off the coast of Tel Aviv and Gaza that could form the basis of a historic peace treaty and bring enormous wealth to every Israeli and Palestinian. But nothing has prepared Jon or Erin for the terror that lies ahead. The book that started it all, "The Last Jihad" is the first of Joel C. Rosenberg's "New York Times" best-selling series, with 500,000 in print. The first page puts readers in the cockpit of a hijacked jet on a kamikaze mission into an American city--but it was written nine months before 9/11/01. As the plot unfolds, White House advisors Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy are under attack in Jerusalem as the U.S. goes to war with Iraq over weapons of mass destruction--but "The Last Jihad" was published four months before the actual Iraq war began.

Caution: you will not put it down!! Mar 27, 2007
This book is an excellent read! Highly recommended & entertaining! I read the book in less than 2 days and have read it twice! I recommend all of Joel Rosenberg's books, he is an excellent author!
The First of a Series About the Last Days Mar 17, 2007
Rosenberg intrigues the reader from the very first chapter with a fast and exciting opening. Written before Gulf War II (and I believe just before 9/11), his novel on the Middle East (particularly events based in Iraq in this story) reads like a contemporary newspaper. This work is the first in a series on the Last Days; each subsequent work eerily matching events in the Middle East before they happen.
In each novel, though less in this first book, the middle chapters tend to not be as fast moving as the first few and last few chapters. Even so, they are all enjoyable, and I look forward to more of his books in this series.
Rosenberg has also written a non-fiction book, "Epicenter" which focuses on actual news events in Iran, Iraq, Israel, and Russia, and where those events may be leading us in light of biblical prophecy. His web blog provides almost daily updates and links to such events. Rosenberg is not an alarmist, nor a typical "end times" prophet of doom. Instead, he paints a portrait of how trends in current events may in fact be the fulfillment of the Book of Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39.
Scary fiction or reality Mar 15, 2007
I had this book recommended to me by a family member is is serving in the USMC. This book may be fiction, and by the way is extremely well written, but the reality of what could happen hit home.
Disappointed 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.
Modern Day Prophet? Feb 12, 2007
Joel Rosenberg has an uncanny way of writing a book and seeing it come true in short order! Perhaps God is using him to warn us? I don't know but his books are excellent.
