Editorial Reviews

According to Joel C. Rosenberg, spiritual, religious, and political battles are taking place all over the Middle East. In Inside the Revolution, he explains how jihadists, Jeffersonian Muslim leaders, and Christian sympathizers are vying for supremacy and/or breathing space. A Christian fundamentalist view of a bubbling global hotspot.
Publishers Weekly

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)

Firstly, anything that Joel Rosenberg does is good. Does a very good job of detailing events that have lead to the current situation in the middle east and the likely direction these events will take. There are no punches pulled in the book and for those that are concerned with the event in the middle east this book helps you clearly understand what is going on and why it is happening.

I found this biased writing with a specific outcome already in mind. But then this it would seem this author is very biased to begin with.
