Joel C. Rosenberg in his book “The Tehran Initiative” Book Two in the The Twelfth Imam series published by Tyndale House Publishers brings us to The Middle East in the possible future.

I think it is entirely possible that Joel Rosenberg is a spy.  Not your typical spy I suppose but since I have never met one and have no reference point based on what I read all I can say is he must be some kind of spy.  Mr. Rosenberg knows a lot about how governments work.  He has a fascinating amount of information about what is going on in the Muslim world and he has written a fast-paced thriller to prove it.

Here’s an exerpt from the jacket of the book:  “The world is on the brink of disaster and the clock is ticking. Iran has just conducted its first atomic weapons test. Millions of Muslims around the world are convinced their messiah–known as “the Twelfth Imam”–has just arrived on earth. Israeli leaders fear Tehran, under the Twelfth Imam’s spell, will soon launch a nuclear attack that could bring about a second holocaust and the annihilation of Israel. The White House fears Jerusalem will strike first, launching a preemptive attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities that could cause the entire Middle East to go up in flames, oil prices to skyrocket, and the global economy to collapse. With the stakes high and few viable options left, the president of the United States orders CIA operative David Shirazi and his team to track down and sabotage Iran’s nuclear warheads before Iran or Israel can launch a devastating first strike.”

In “The Tehran Initiative” Joel C. Rosenberg weaves together headlines from our current news with Biblical prophecy.  This book is entertaining and will have you flipping pages as fast as you can read but, be prepared, it is also thought-provoking and will have you looking up from the page going, “wow”.   I do not recommend starting this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down.  Mr. Rosenberg is an excellent writer and knows how to twist your nerve endings as he tightens the suspense.  I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
