Overview

Do current events in Iraq and the Middle East signal the beginning of the end-times?

Authors Pate and Hays believe in biblical prophecy, but they also know it's crucial to distinguish correct interpretations of prophecy from incorrect ones. Iraq: Babylon of the End-Times? provides a sensible approach to examining current events in the Middle East in light of biblical prophecy and geopolitical history.

With clear and persuasive arguments it sheds light on questions such as: Are the political enemies of America the biblical enemies of God? How accurate is the biblical interpretation popularized by the Left Behind series? What is the significance of Saddam Hussein's self-identification with Nebuchadnezzar? According to Bible prophecy, must Babylon be rebuilt and destroyed again? Are the modern-day Iraqis related to the ancient Babylonians? Could the prophet Daniel's "revived Roman Empire" refer to the European Union or the United Nations?

Iraq: Babylon of the End-Times? is a healthy and hopeful corrective to looming end-times misconceptions. It is also a reminder that Christians are part of the universal church, whose message is one of hope for all the nations of the world.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
For nearly every American war, enterprising Christians have published books about how the enemy du jour is, in fact, the prophesied enemy of the last days. So it is no real surprise to see C. Marvin Pate and J. Daniel Hays's Iraq-Babylon of the End-Times? hitting bookshelves this month. What is surprising is the book's low-key, reasoned argument that Saddam is not actually the ultimate Big Bad. Refreshingly, the authors show admirable restraint and refuse to hazard predictions about Saddam's role in biblical prophecy, preferring to simply lay out biblical prophecy as they understand it and to embrace a stance of "Christian humility" about possible interpretations. They also challenge other evangelicals who claim that Saddam's rebuilt Babylon will be the center of the Antichrist's new world government, arguing instead that "Saddam will probably soon pass from the scene." The final chapter stresses that "an overemphasis on the imminent end and the accompanying consequential hopelessness of the world situation does not serve the cause of Christ." Well said... but then why the doom-and-gloom book cover and teaser title? Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
