Inside the Revolution: How the Followers of Jihad, Jefferson, & Jesus Are Battling to Dominate the Middle East and Transform the World

Joel C. Rosenberg, Author . Tyndale $24.99 (551p) ISBN 978-1-4143-1931-5

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 interviewed global leaders. This is one of the best primers for evangelical Christians to understand political Islam in the Middle East. (Mar. 10)
