Compelling Story Which Ties in with Current Events - It Could Happen!
August 15, 2014
I could not put this book down after getting to a certain point in the story! This book is a must read for all people as it informs well about the Islamic beliefs while tied into prophecy. It was the first time I've read any Q'uran quotes which are very devasting to Christians and Jews. We have a chance to avoid calamity if we choose. The story really ties in with current events. I can see where Israel would not trust any other country intelligence and act on its' own. Trust between governments is very challenging, as conveyed by the author. Israel is so much closer to the situation. I could picture this story actually happening. Other books by Joel Rosenberg are equally compelling.
Joel has written a fast paced action pack novel about the Muslim life, the threat from Iran, the truth about the expecting coming of the Twelfth Imam in a novel about a CIA spy working to stop the Iranian threat while searching for his identity among a personal relationship he can't forget and a cultural background he must embrace in some ways to do his job. And in the midst of it all comes the salvation of Jesus Christ to some Muslims while the coming of the Imam is on the horizon. Of course, this is a series, so the story is incomplete and leaves you hanging for the next books, but that's ok, start this one and go along for the ride.
Thoroughly enjoyed experiencing Joel Rosenberg's adventure with David Shirazi and all the cast of characters in this series. From the very first sentence on the very first page of "The Twelfth Imam", throughout "The Tehran Initiative", to the very last sentence on the very last page of "The Damascus Countdown" I was captivated. Excellent, thought-provoking, captivating writing.
