Quite good but a very "American" perspective.,
This review is from: Judgment Day : Islam, Israel and the Nations (Hardcover)
Dave Hunt's books are generally fairly easy reads and this is no exception.
It seems to contain a lot of info similar to his previous books like "Jerusalem, a cup of trembling", but synthesised and updated for todays situation.
I really like Hunts stuff. I only just got this one and I am about 70 pages into it. Mine is the second edition.
I basically agree with him. My ownly critique is that in attempting to force a complex situation into black and white categories he seems to be naively pro-American, pro-Israel, anti-"Palestinian" and anti-Arab. By this, I mean; he seems to ignore the fact that Alquaeda was set up by the CIA to fight Russia in Afghaniastan. The Bin-Ladens are great friends and business partners with the Bushes and Sadman Hussein was set up and supported by America. These examples could be massively increased.
Israel has behaved pretty badly. For instance the anti-defamation league, Mossad and the house, land grab mentality of Israeli forces. Most of the media is fairly anti-Israel and I accept that, but it doesn't justify the appalling behaviour often wittnessed aginst Palestinians by the Israeli's.
I do believe true Christians have a biblical duty to support, pray for and defend Israel and the Jewish people and from this perspective this book provides a lot of good info to help with that task.
We should pray for the peace of Jerusalem as we seek to make know God's amazing saving grace, for Jews and Gentiles alike, through faith in the lord, God and Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved. Amen.

Jesus is not Lord or God, nor is he the son of God. How is it in Christianity, that God can supposedly produce offspring, yet christians regard christianity as monotheistic. it isnt!.

do u want to debate how false and brainwashed islam is didn't muhammad marry a 6 year old girl and that the koran was written 150 years after the false prophet died by someone who didn't know him u know very little about jesus and his claims that he is god

You've misunderstood the concept of Jesus as the Son of God. God doesn't "produce offspring". Jesus is the eternal Son... He has always been; and He's co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. There are three persons in the one God-head. The God of the Bible is a tri-unity. And, yes, Christianity is a monotheistic faith.
You may not understand the Trinity. But please don't misrepresent what Christians actually believe.
