Jerusalem. The Truth.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Battle for Jerusalem (Paperback)The revelations in this captivating book by John Hagee are fundamentally based on the Hebrew-Christian Bible and the book reads like a novel holding the reader's attention throughout.
The subject is probably one of the most contentious not only for the present day but also throughout history and the immediate future.
The author confirms in this presentation the claims of the Hebrew prophets of the Old Testament that in the 'latter days', Jerusalem will be again be at the epicentre of world events and 'a cup of trembling' to the nations.
John Hagee tackles this issue head on and pulls no punches as he presents a fascinating insight into current events, the Middle East 'peace process', Jerusalem, the Temple Mount plus the potential conflicts facing us all involving weapons of mass destruction. All of these issues and more being examined in the light of what the Scriptures ultimately declare for the times ahead of us.
The writer stresses that his primary purpose is to convey an understanding to readers of the age-old divisions still tearing the Holy Land apart, and how these relate to the future of Jerusalem and the region as a whole.
The roots of the conflict are studied in some depth.
The writer examining the 'Palestinian issue', the history of the 'Palestinian' people, Yasser Arafat, the whole Arab-Israeli conflict and the realms/consequences of International involvement.
The issue of the coming Third Temple in Jerusalem is also tackled in the light of the prophesied Anti-christ. Not least of the subjects addressed is that of the Jewish people and the Land of Israel.
Since the horrific terrorist atrocities of September 11 2001, John Hagee has in fact released an 'updated' version of this book entitled "Attack On America. New York, Jerusalem & The Role Of Terrorism In The Last Days."
To those readers who find obtaining a copy of " Battle For Jerusalem", then perhaps the aforementioned update would be suitable as it does contain the backbone of what is included in the earlier work.
Having personally studied Biblical prophecy and the Middle East for many years I can but commend the writer's interpretation of the subject. Highly recommended.
