Overview

Newly updated and revised with the most current information about the events in the Middle East, Pastor John Hagee explains how the Israeli and Palestinian conflict will affect global politics, America's energy supply, and the world economy. The Battle for Jerusalem explores the heart of Israel's current struggle, the history behind the antagonism between Arabs and Jews, and the powerful significance of the Temple Mount, a thirty-five acre parcel that is the most fiercely contested real estate on the planet. Hagee explains how this conflict is not merely political or economic, but is also spiritual, with the repercussions of their actions continuing to echo across the world. Most importantly, Hagee illustrates how all the players in this tortuous conflict fit into God's plan for the ages.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The battle for Jerusalem between the Jews and their neighbors seems ageless, and according to pastor and author Hagee (The Revelation of Truth; From Daniel to Doomsday; The Beginning of the End), it is. Writing from an evangelical Christian perspective, Hagee claims that the Bible prophesies enmity between the offspring of Abraham (Ishmael, son of Hagar, representing the Arab contingency) and Isaac (son of Sarah, representing the Jewish people). Hagee asserts that this war will continue until biblical prophecies about the Antichrist's rise and Christ's return are fulfilled. Hagee is crystal-clear about whose side God is supposed to be on: all Christians are duty-bound to prayerfully intercede for the nation of Israel, and her enemies will be swept away. In the tradition of two millennia of Christian prophecy writers, Hagee points to current events and ties them to biblical prophecy. (Now, however, the villains include ATM cards: a cashless society, according to Hagee, will enable the Antichrist's projected one-world government to thrive.) The book is bound to offend many; Jews may be upset to find that Hagee considers Judaism important only in its role vis- -vis Christianity, and Muslims will rightly be disturbed by the book's stereotypical portrayals of Muslims as violent and dangerous "fundamentalists." Evangelical Christians who have devoured the Left Behind series may enjoy this book, though it is considerably less detailed than other evangelical prophecy tomes and the prose doesn't exactly sparkle. (Apr.) Forecast: Long before Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins became household names, preachers such as William Miller, Cyrus Scofield and Hal Lindsey became bestselling authors of biblical prophecy books. Lindsey's The Late Great Planet Earth was the bestselling nonfiction book of the 1970s, with a whopping 28 million copies in print by 1990. Today, in the wake of Left Behind's phenomenal popularity, a book on the apocalypse could be positioned to perform very well even if it's the runt of the litter.

    If you keep hearing bits and pieces of the situation in the Middle East and want to understand the whole picture, this book does an excellent job of taking you through the history of the conflict all the way through the modern day issues. It is easy to follow and very well written. I highly recommend it to anybody.

    Jerusalem. The Truth Is Out There.

    The revelations in this captivating book by John Hagee should be accessed by people of all faiths, with their impact being of such a wide ranging & immense significance that they will ultimately affect us all. The author confirms 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. Many readers will be aware that during the Nazi Holocaust, musicians were forced to play calming music at the entrance to the death camp of Auschwitz to mask the horror awaiting the Jews as they passed through that infamous gate en route to annihilation. From this study we can see an alarming parallel to our modern times which the writer illustrates so well. Today's orchestra, comprising of the likes of Bush, Blair, Chirac, Annan, Arafat, & co., all dutifully supported in harmony by the media. Each shown to purvey a modern symphony pacifying & reassuring the Jewish people who are currently being coerced along the new deceptive route to genocide paved with counterfeit pledges of 'peace'. To elaborate we see from this work how the Israelis are being betrayed into believing the `lie' that by surrendering their eternal Biblical homeland to the Arabs who have taken the name `Palestinian', then the Jewish people will receive recognition, a cessation of terrorism and ultimately `peace'. The writer ably demonstrating with accurate references to Scripture that no such peace under these terms can ever be achieved. One will discover through this study that the same Bible that promised the Holy Land as an eternal, Divine inheritance to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob (Israel) also proclaimed the consequences of `dividing up' God's Land. ("I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgement against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land." - Joel 3;v2). The outcome of International interference, pressure and any Israeli capitulation clearly not being peace but war, destruction and judgement upon the nations responsible who rebelled against the Written Word and Purpose so clearly defined. One needs to read and re-read the sections of this book devoted to these particular issues. 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 heard John Hagee speak and having studied the Middle East for many years, I can confirm that the writer has a commendable grasp of the
