If you are looking for an exciting (or scary, depending on your point of view)end-times book with lots of imagery from Revelation, this is not your book. It does present a good picture of how the USA might figure in Biblical prophecy. The author, Michael Evans, focuses on the role of the nation of Israel in prophecy. He examines growing world antisemitism and the Islamic movement. He looks at the roles many of our past presidents have played in relation to the Zionist movement. Good for students of prophecy or the end-times and Christians in general.

This book is an outstanding example of how not to look at both American and Biblical history. This book completely fails to consider the flaws in both American democracy and biblical interpretation (hermeneutics, if you will). The presupposition in this book that is never even questioned is that Christianity is the true religion and American democracy is patently the best form of government. Moreover, even if one considers these presuppositions to be true, one should still be fair in treating the other side's point of view. In fact the mysterious 'other' is never even mentioned in this book except to say how 'they' are wrong and we are right. No wonder we as American's are so maligned by other countries, we sanctimoniously consider ourselves always in the right and present ourselves as condescending. This book wouldn't even pass as a freshman level essay in any history course at any institution of higher learning worthy of the name. What is truly scary is that this sort of diletante historical distorting DOES pass as scholarship in Christian circles. I sincerely hope that Christians can raise the bar on what they consider to be scholarship. For those interested in real scholarship on this fascinating and incredibly important aspect of American thought refer to the books below by Marsden, Cohn, Sanford and Butterfield, etc.

The Mercies of God are clearly expressed in the pages of this book, God's promise to Abram extends throughout his generation and his childrens generation, because HE GOD is just, Chapter 17, gives clear instructions on escaping the judgement of God, through faith in Jesus,the bible makes it clear that that the just and the unjust will be judged seperately, and rewards will be given, the obviously cannot be judged together, anyone who reads the American prophesies, and obeys the advise and instructions will be able to experience the savibng of their souls and the hope of salvation , made available to others, the preaching of the gospel is foolishness to those who feel they are wise, but to us ist is the power of God to the saving of souls, i urge that men read this book accompanied with their bibles and experience the saving grace of God

This book is key to understanding much of our current 'war on terror.' I believe we cannot truly understand Islamic fundalmentalists without a Biblical perspective. This book gives that perspective!

I am so grateful to Mike Evans for awakening America and all the world to the fact that , despite the outward appearance of things , our great and awesome God is still in control of things!!! His WILL will be done! I plead with every thinking person not to resent His chastising no matter how hard it may seem but to turn their eyes to the heavens in anticipation of His return! Turn your hearts and lives over to Him through repentance for sin and faith in the sacrifice of Yeshua/Jesus on your behalf. Then and only then will the warfare beteen yourself and He be ended. This is the first step for every human in experiencing that world of peace and absence of evil we are all looking for.I repeat:'LOOK TO THE HEAVENS'.

After reading this book, I must say that Michael D. Evans has a thorough knowledge of the complex issues which confront not only America and the Middle East; but the whole world, as well. It helps to devise the moral clarity needed to proceed in the direction that God has called us to. We must stand with all who have been entrusted to follow God and maintain the unity with Israel. A must needed book at this time.

I very recently purchased this book; it is monumentally significant in my opinion. It is the most recent example of Christian eschatological thought based upon scripture, and voluminous real-world evidences, of what was inspired of God thousands of years ago in Biblical prophecy. This book is applicable to the world we live in right now. It is a wake up call for America that cannot be ignored - not by any facet of our republic. To do so is tantamount to ignoring the Will of God and His Word. Every American president since George Washington has sworn his oath upon the Bible and these very words which are at the core of this most timely book by Michael D. Evans. Mr. Evans points out that America married one brother, Isaac (Israel) , as a result of appeasement policies that resulted in the Holocaust and World War II; and that we married the other brother, Ishmael because of convenience due to that brother bringing a dowery of black gold (oil) to the marriage following World War Two and then used it to blackmail America as resultant wars emerged following the prophetic fulfillment of Israel¿s rebirth as a nation in May of 1948. As America has grown into a colossal super-power in the six decades since that war, so has our marriage to Israel and Ishmael. I most assuredly get the point Mr. Evans is making and I will go so far as to say (please pardon the ensuing pun, although it is wholly intended) that America is engaged in a marriage, a veritable manage-a-trois of Biblical proportions. It is one that is not sustainable in either the near or the long term. A divorce from one of our marriage partners must be effected otherwise America will not survive either marriage intact. In the truest sense this polygamous marriage America has put herself into is going to be the death of her. The choice of whom to divorce is obvious from the Biblical eschatological perspective¿ we must divorce Ishmael immediately because he is killing our youth, attacking our cities and threatening us with biological, chemical and nuclear annihilation because we have so far refused to divorce ourselves from Israel. We are being warned by God himself as Michael Evans writes that his book is a wake up call to America. I agree, his book, among others in the same genre, is a wake up call, perhaps the final wake up call.

This excellent, well written study scrutinises current and future events pertaining to the US, the West & indeed the International community as a whole, in relation to the subject of Biblical prophecy. Many will perhaps find the contents contentious but the text will grip the reader's attention throughout. This particular study analyses the alleged 'failures' to deal with Islamic fundamentalism in the context of the attacks upon the World Trade Centre and the implications of the ensuing 'war on terrorism' together with what the book describes as a 'moral compromise' that has allegedly seen Bible believing Christians in America being demonized as 'bigots and extremists' whilst alleging that God has simultaneously been 'dethroned' and taken out of schools, courts & other areas of authority. The roots of the alleged hostility of Islamic fundamentalists towards America & the West is also discussed. Many will find these & other issues contentious but the book provides what many will see as a determined case to answer. Read and digest. This presentation declaring at the outset that the agenda being pursued throughout the book is a sincere attempt to 'stare into God's eternal Word' and to search for 'His purpose and plan' in the midst of all 'the chaos on the planet'. Central to this 'purpose and plan' the book scrutinises the Holy Scriptures as to the significance of the Jewish people, their state of Israel and the magnitude of the situation surrounding Jerusalem. Amongst a plethora of Biblical references surrounding these pivotal subjects is that of Genesis ch12;v1-3 which relates to a statement shown by Hebrew-Christian Scripture to have been made by God to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (the Jews);- '...I will bless those who bless you and whoever curses you I will curse....' The reader is then shown the historical, present and future significance of these Scriptures. The book weighing the actions of the US, and indeed the International community as a whole, in relation to such important questions as foreign policy, the Palestinian/Arab-Israeli conflict and Islam. The study revealing what the Holy Scriptures themselves are quoted as citing in relation to these immense questions with a particular emphasis being made to Biblical prophecy & the 'end times'. Issues which the study declares as being of vital importance to every individual. Whether the reader agrees or disagrees with the personal views of the writer, this is a gripping, timely and relevant study which everyone needs to read, irrespective of their nationality or religion. I would also highly recommend two other books by Michael D. Evans entitled 'Jerusalem Betrayed' and 'Beyond Iraq'. Thank you for your time.

Forming the foundation of this work is the story, familiar to those of Judeo-Christian upbringing, of Abraham¿s two sons Ishmael and Isaac, each by different¿and competing¿wives, each who sired a great nation of people, one Hebrew, one Muslim. This much alone is a great story in its own right, an ancient family soap-opera of a tale. But Michael Evans, a fundamentalist Christian minister, takes this to its ¿logical¿ end, with competition becoming conflict, by sketching a scenario where Armageddon features Christians and Jews against Muslims. Of course, what¿s problematic about prophecies like these is that every major religion has its own collection of them. When applied with the tunnel vision that too often arises from passionate belief, these prophecies ultimately set one group against all other groups. This is only human nature¿tribalism by any other name. No matter how refined and advanced the technology with which those tribal beliefs are advanced, its still tribalism. Joseph Campbell lays this all out brilliantly in The Power of Myth. If you¿re as tired as I am of all the conflict¿and the anxiety and downright FEAR that it engenders, I recommend you read SECOND EDEN. It¿s brand new, and not only one of the most unusual books I¿ve ever read but one of the best. Here is presented a scenario that permits of ALL groups seeing their common heritage, identity and eventual salvation, though it takes some doing to get there. It, too, deals with Judgment Day stories and asks the question, How could the Armageddon described by Evans logically play out in our modern, secular world, where science is the new religion? It even, if only in passing, gives a plausible explanation of how UFOs, extraterrestrial visitation and alien abduction stories could actually be true. And the meaning of what an angel is will stun you. If you are ready to take an honest, hard look at yourself as an individual of great power and consequence, check it out.

The love of the writer for his own country and the Holy Bible emanates from the text of this extremely well written study. Having already read two previous works by the source, namely 'Beyond Iraq; The Next Move' and 'Jerusalem Betrayed', I purchased this book having been deeply impressed with what I personally considered to be the sound, authoritative and informed manner in which the subject of Biblical prophecy in relation to current events had been approached in these two works. I was not to be disappointed in my additional acquisition of this fine work which will hold the reader's attention from beginning to end. This particular study analyses the alleged 'failures' to deal with Islamic fundamentalism in the context of the attacks upon the World Trade Centre and the implications of the ensuing 'war on terrorism' together with what the book describes as a 'moral compromise' that has allegedly seen Bible believing Christians in America being demonized as 'bigots and extremists' whilst alleging that God has simultaneously been 'dethroned' and taken out of schools, courts & other areas of authority. The roots of the alleged hostility of Islamic fundamentalists towards America & the West is also discussed. Many will find these & other issues contentious but the book provides what many will see as a determined case to answer. Read and digest. This presentation declaring at the outset that the agenda being pursued throughout the book is a sincere attempt to 'stare into God's eternal Word' and to search for 'His purpose and plan' in the midst of all 'the chaos on the planet'.

Whether the reader agrees or disagrees with the personal views of the writer, this is a gripping, timely and relevant study which everyone needs to read, irrespective of their nationality or religion. I would also highly recommend the two books mentioned earlier in the review. Their significance has not waned. Thank you for your time.

From cover to cover this book is simply amazing and insightful. The author explains with biblical documentation the unprecedented events of today. This is a must read for avid readers of prophecy and biblical accounts. Even if you aren't up to par with your biblical knowledge you will learn a lot from this! You won't just want to read this once.

Although liberal reviewers (who have probably never read it) will likely lambaste Mike Evan¿s new book The American Prophecies, Evan¿s latest work continues to set him apart as one of the most adept analysts of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the entire conflagration of passions and hatreds in the Middle Eastern drama. Evans has written one of the best researched and insightful books on the American-Israeli relationship to date and how that relationship has impacted the moral climate and cultural shifts that set the stage for the events of 9-11. Evans makes a convincing case that the future of terrorism in America, and the World, will be determined by where America¿s moral compass points in the days ahead. Where others tend to speculate about the causes and cures of Middle Eastern conflict Evans speaks with the authoritative insight of a decades-long, first-hand observer and confidant to many of the most significant players in the unfolding theatre of Israel and the Arab World. The reader will find here remarkable historical revelations about the role of the Jewish people in the founding of America, as well as the role of Americans in the founding of Israel. Evans chapter on Presidents and Prophecy is full of startling stories about how changes in American leadership have impacted our relationship to Israel and significantly impacted our policies and political strength in the world. Understanding this relationship is, in Evan¿s persuasive perspective, a key component in charting America¿s future. Although Evans writes from a clearly Christian perspective, his arguments and insights cannot be dismissed as mere theological prejudices. Evans belongs in the company of the most informed and leading edge political analysts on Middle Eastern issues. His theology does not pollute his views but informs them. Evans relevant analysis proves again that any ¿so-called¿ Middle East expert who has no theological perspective has no right reporting on a region of the world where the three major religions of Mankind originated.

Books like this are more horrifying than the best scary midnight read. The author professes America's place in the world is revealed by biblical prophecy. The assertion that America's foreign policy should be guided by an ancient religious text scares me to the bone.

Reading this novel I asked myself ¿who am I that I should be given the honor and privilege to critique the words of a prophet?¿ ¿Or what words could I use that would give credence to such an accomplished author? ¿ My answer is none. Instead my comments are guided by blind faith. I have long feared that a time of atonement for the American people has always been close at hand. Mr. Evans novel depicts America¿s place in biblical prophecies by use of selected verses, words, and actions from Presidential inaugural scriptures of elected officials during their term in office. Moreover, he states that America must do its divine duty and stand up for her sister and ally Israel. Is America capable of choosing right or justice over power or that bottom line? Is it possible for a nation that has not sewn its own seeds of racism to come to the aid of another? How can a country that will not acknowledge its own moral failures assist racial unrest abroad? Unlike our American scales of justice Israel, Arab-Iraq and its terrorist¿s sanctions are not blind. Finally, Mr. Evans¿ viewpoint of America holding hands with Ishmael for oil and Israel over guilt of the holocaust, guilt by silence. Every history professor in America will tell you that the basis of government is to do whatever is beneficial for the nation. Where does this leave America in the biblical struggle over foreign Holy Lands? Only God knows. What I do know is the God of my Father does not condone killing be it for land, oil, power, fame, or the nation. Lastly, The American Prophecies unveils a highly controversial view into providential Presidential politics. Based on this, will America stand or fall?
