Publisher's Description

2009 Retailer's Choice Award winner!
Inside the Revolution takes you inside the winner-take-all battle for the hearts, minds, and souls of the people of the Middle East. It includes never-before-seen profiles of the Radicals, the Reformers and the Revivalists. It explains the implications of each movement and the importance of each leader–not only through the lenses of politics and economics but through the third lens of Scripture as well. Today, wars and revolutions define the modern Middle East, and many believe the worst is yet to come.
  • How real and serious is the threat of Radical Islam to American national security eight years after 9/11
  • ?
  • Are there any Muslim leaders who oppose the violence of the Radicals—and is there any hope that such leaders will come to power in key countries in the Middle East
  • ?
  • What is God doing in the Middle East—and is there any hope that Muslims will find faith in Jesus Christ?
  • How can we as Christians help strengthen our brothers and sisters who love Jesus in the Muslim world, and how can we reach out to Muslims here at home?

When will the Iranians get a nuclear weapon? Will President Obama force Israel to accept a two-state solution? When will we capture Bin Laden? Will Iraq make it as a democratic country? The se and other questions about the Middle East fill our news sources. Inside the Revolution by Joel Rosenberg covers these and other questions the media does not address. He introduces us to the three major philosophies of the Middle East that are battling for the souls of the area: Islamic jihad, Jeffersonian democracy, and followers of Jesus.

The first section covering about half of the book deals with the proponents of Islamic jihad. Using anecdotes, news coverage, statistics, quotations, and their own websites and books, Rosenberg takes us inside the jihadist movement. He also interviews people involved in the fight against terrorism. He discusses the history, leaders, and theology of the radicals. He explains how insufficient the response and the understanding of the West have been. Some people will find this section scary and depressing, but it is only part of the story he presents.

Next, Rosenberg describes the secular movements in the Middle East that are promoting Jeffersonian democracy. He interviews movers and shakers who are working to promote freedom: Hamid Karzai, the grandson of Ayatollah Khomeini, Nouri Al-Maliki, Jalal Talabani, and an assistant to King Mohammed VI of Morocco. He describes changes that these men are introducing in their countries and their fights against radicals.

The final two sections set the book apart from others on jihad and the Middle East. These two sections are hard to put down, because they offer perspective one does not find in the general media. Rosenberg also includes a recommended resource list, an appendix of twenty terrorist plots that were foiled since the Twin Towers attack, copious endnotes, and an index.

Rosenberg is a Jewish Christian who is also a New York Times bestselling author of both fiction and nonfiction. His analysis and insight are refreshing; his outlook encouraging. His writing is forceful, vivid, and well reasoned. This is an extremely worthwhile book to read. – Debbie W. Wilson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Publisher's Weekly

Known best for his fiction centered in the Middle East and based in Christian end times beliefs, Rosenberg’s nonfiction behemoth will be a bestseller among evangelicals. Rigorous research, travel and interviews with hundreds of Muslim, Jewish and Christian leaders lends credibility to this survey of the spectrum of beliefs that drive foreign policy in nations such as Iran, on which the book focuses. Rosenberg divides Muslims into three types. Radical Islamists will stop at nothing short of dominating the world or destroying those who believe otherwise. Reformers believe radical Muslims have hijacked peaceful Islam for their own power-hungry and violent ends. Revivalists are Muslims or those living in predominantly Muslim countries who believe Islam is not the answer but that Jesus is the way. Rosenberg challenges Islamic eschatology without adequately comparing parallel Christian views. On the other hand, he is one of a few evangelicals who will put quotes from the Qur’an in context, has traveled widely and inter-viewed global leaders. This is one of the best primers for evangelical Christians to understand political Islam in the Middle East. (Mar. 10)Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
