Review: The Twelfth Imam

I downloaded a copy of Joel C. Rosenberg’s latest thriller onto my Kindle last week and was instantly drawn in. The Twelfth Imam is one of the best books I have read in a long, long time and one that I would highly recommend to the folks in my church. I am not one to recommend books lightly but this newest offering from Rosenberg is exceptional. Rosenberg has a knack for educating while he entertains. His previous works delve into fleshing out biblical prophecy in real world scenarios. This time Rosenberg fleshes out Muslim eschatology within the context of modern day Iran, which really is on the verge of obtaining nuclear power. Prepare yourself because while this book teaches the reader the ins and outs of what Muslims believe regarding the end of the world, Rosenberg does so in a way that feels eerily plausible. Remember this is the guy that gave us The Last Jihad, a book released right after 9/11 but written before it, that describes a radical Muslim flying a plane into the presidential motorcade.

Joel Rosenberg is a Christian whose father was a Jew and whose mother was a Christian. He has friends in “high” places and has enjoyed audiences with members of Congress and the current Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of The Twelfth Imam. You won’t be disappointed.
