    One Scary Book

    There are many postings for this book from people who have obviously not read it and have an agenda. The fact that these very same people DO have an agenda is covered in this book. I was surprised at the incredibly broad scope of this text. It covers many elements of Islamic eschatology and makes comparisons with essentially dispensational Christian eschatology. But that's not all. It also covers Christian's actions and responses to witnessing to those in need of Christ. It reveals the beliefs and origins of the Islamic religion and why people of this religion tend to respond the way they do. The book is fantastically sourced using several Islamic texts and popular Muslim teachers as direct references. This gives the book a fully defensible case against those who would casually "one-star" a book they haven't read. The sources are there. The Qur'an and hadiths are all available to easily cross-reference using the Internet. As a side note, the book presents its subject matter in an incredibly gentle and loving (Christian) manner. It gives you an opportunity to examine your own heart for the lost and your beliefs about the Trinity and other important Christian doctrines, encouraging some healthy introspection. Finally, I'll mention that this is the only book I've ever read that I voluntarily read the entire appendix. Excellent resources covering everything from a letter the author received from a radical and another from a "moderate" Islamic scholar.

    Very Prophetic

    To those who question the realness of the Bible. this book should validate the Holy Bible; Revelations. It should also validate the Koran, and it's part in what Revelations say will come to pass.

    Any true Christian,[one who is saved by the blood of God's only son; Jesus Christ.] who reads this book will be WOWED! You will know.

    THOUGHT PROVOKING AND REVEALING

    Though I was certainly not surprised by Mr Richardson's conclusion, as the title is a dead giveaway; I found that the book gave a very good representation of not only the attributes of the antichrist but parrallels of the Islamic Mahdi. Since I had already come to this same conclusion years ago, I wasnt as surprised as some readers may be; though "detailed" is not strong enough word, to describe the research that went into this book. Any sensible reader would be hard pressed to ignore the many, and I do mean many, similarities between Islam and the Kingdom of the Beast, as layed out by the bible over 2,800 years ago.

    I found it refreshing that a Christian stood firm on what the bible says, and gives us clear focus on the agenda of Islam, though honestly concerned about the idealogical battle that the western world has ignored, to our future detriment.

    Definitely not a bedside or coffee table book, because the Implications for America are deep and gravely sobering, but an absolute MUST HAVE for any serious student of truth. And yes, there is "Absolute Truth", He has a name. YHVH!

    Quite Laughable.

    Apparently Joel Richardson has never heard of the Islamic Al-Dajjal or "anti-Christ." And in regards to the Mahdi as the "Islamic Jesus", the true Islamic Jesus is Jesus Christ himself. Muslims believe in Jesus as a mighty prophet of God before Muhammad. Al-Mahdi will not bring in a time of peace, he will bring war against Al-Dajjal until Jesus himself comes down to destroy the Anti-Christ. The Mahdi will be a righteous fighter for God, while Al-Dajjal will be against Jesus and God Almighty. In Islam Al-Dajjal will be charismatic and will be very manipulative. Al-Dajjal will call himself god and will do miracles that will lead people astray from the one true God. What Islam says about al-Dajjal is exactly what the Christians say about the Anti-Christ. Muslims and Christians are very similar. Read about the true beliefs of Muslims before reading this falsified Evangelical rhetoric.

    Very surprised...

    It's quite interesting how the author came to so many conclusions as to stating who the antichrist will be. It's interesting because I have read the Torah, the Bible, and the Qur'an and the Mahdi was not mentioned in the Qur'an. In Islam the antichrist is referred to as Dejjal. The Muslims believe that Jesus will be the savior. This is probably a shocker to everyone to hear considering the "Islamaphobia" that has taken over much of the world.
    I really wish the author would have done some research rather that state he did because I have researched religions over many years and it seems to me as though the author was in a rush to have this book out on the shelves to meet a deadline.
    Friends...please feel free to ask questions on this subject and I promise to answer you...without asking you to purchase a book!

    Christian hubris on vivid display

    This is an excellent example of an arrogant mind at work. Richardson is absolutely convinced that everything Christian is right and anything to do with Islam is tainted with evil. If you like the work of hate-mongers, you'll love this piece of trash written by a true zealot in his own right.

    This is a completely inaccurate and bigoted book. It is both anti-Islamic and anti-Christian.

    Truth Be Told!

    Great book. The author explains eschatology for those who don't quite understand it. Explains the differences and similarities of Christianity and Islam, primarily in the end-times timetable. If you're simply curious, I recommend it.

    This book is amazing. I have learned so much about Islam just from this book. Things I never hear talked about anywhere. But be warned it's some scary stuff.

    This book is giving false information. Mahdi is not the same as

    This book is giving false information. Mahdi is not the same as the Antichrist. Mahdi means "The Guided One" and he will come before the end of time. Shortly after him is when the Antichrist, Dajjal will come. Following him will be Jesus and he is the one that will fully restore purity on Earth and in the hearts of humans before the end of time. Truth is: A) the Qur'an talks about the Antichrist (Dajjal) to have similar qualities and attributes to Jesus and many people will believe that he is Jesus BUT IN REALITY, as the Qur'an specifies, the Antichrist (Dajjal) is not Jesus as this book says and B) The Qur'an says that Jesus will return before time and the true believers will recognize him and follow him until the end. So to clear up the errors of this book, Mahdi is NOT the Antichrist. The Mahdi will come BEFORE the Antichrist, and JESUS will come and he is the SAVIOR that will bring PEACE. To sum it up, the MAHDI, ANTICHRIST, and THE SAVIOR are 3 separate people in ISLAM, the evil one being DAJJAL (Antichrist) and the good being MAHDI and JESUS.

    Highly Recommended- a must-read for concerned Christians and end-time students!

    It is possible we may be looking for the Antichrist in the wrong place. Joel Richardson's excellent scholarship makes a great case for the Islamic identity of the Antichrist and why he will rise not out of Europe but the Islamic world. Mr. Richardson sheds light on confusing biblical passages about long-lost lands in prophecy and draws a disturbing correlation between the frightening current events in the Middle East and the world of Islam and what the Bible says about the end times.

    Intresting and worth while

    This is a very thought provoking book that hits very close to home amid all the protests and rioting that is currently sweeping across the middle east. This interpretation of the end times prophacies in the bible makes very good sence and has been well researched. This is a must read for any one who is intrested in prophacy.

    After Reading the reviews I see there are way too many comments

    After Reading the reviews I see there are way too many comments where the individual commenting DID NOT read either this book or any of the various resources mentioned. One must study YAHUAH's word and abide it it as it abides in you in order to comprehend this message. It is said that those with eyes will see and those with ears will hear.. one can easily hear but to listen ...
