Product Description

With over one million novels in print, New York Times best-selling author Joel C. Rosenberg has been called "eerily prophetic" and a "modern Nostradamus" for his uncanny ability to write political thrillers that come true. In his first nonfiction book, this evangelical Christian from an Orthodox Jewish heritage takes readers on an unforgettable journey through prophecy and current events into the future of Iraq after Saddam, Russia after Communism, Israel after Arafat, and Christianity after radical Islam. You won't want to miss Joel's exclusive interviews with Israeli, Palestinian, and Russian leaders, and previously classified CIA and White House documents. Similar to the approach Joel takes in his novels, his desire is to draw readers into stories, anecdotes, and predictions in a way that builds confidence that allows Joel to share his faith in Jesus Christ and the reliability of Scripture as a guide to understanding the past and the future.

Drawing on his experience in Washington, his own exclusive interviews with world leaders, and his astute political acumen, Joel makes sense of the events surrounding the Middle East. He connects information in a way that will make you understand and really care about the world's most important events and how they impact your life--from gas prices to your bank account.

Epicenter is about:

  • Change--big changes, dramatic changes, changes that will transform the world as we know it
  • Answers--what the changes are underway in the world's most important countries
  • Insight--readers will understand the trajectory of world events by being taken inside the governments of Iran, Iraq, Russia, China, and more
  • Accessibility--aimed for a wide audience in both the general and Christian markets
  • Faith--Joel shares his faith in Jesus Christ and the reliability of Scripture
Epicenter will answer questions like:
  • Will Iraq go from bad to worse?
  • Will Israel and her Arab neighbors find peace, or is another major Middle East war just around the corner?
  • If the new, post-Soviet Russia is our friend, why is the Kremlin creating a new class of thermonuclear weapons and building an alliance with radical Islam

  • Epicenter - A Must Read
    Epicenter: Why the Current Rumblings in the Middle East Will Change Your Future

    Anyone who has been saying "What on Earth is going on..." needs to read this book. It amazes me that Joel has such a clear understanding of the geopolitical events that are now shaping our economy, our body politic, and our country. It is becoming increasing clear that we are rushing headlong toward the days prophicized in the many books of the Bible. But even if you feel that the Bible is just stories, I strongly recommend that you read Joel's book because "it's happening all around us ...". Even secular forecasters are pointing out many of the happenings that Joel has penned. Lucky for those of us who have read this book that Joel uses that "Third Lense ... If you read nothing else about the Middle East or the times we are living in - you MUST read this book!

  • Epicenter by Joel rosenberg
    This is such a well written and informative book based on The Word of God regarding Ezekiel 39 & 39. I love the Bible and how Joel takes God's word and intertwines it with what is happening in the world today, and also through the many wonderful interviews he was able to obtain with prominent leaders. I read this book twice, and reference it from time to time. God Bless, Joel....more info

Rosenberg is a journalist and explains everything that's happening in the Middle East and how it will impact the West. There are many interviews in the book with prominent military and religious leaders in Israel. Rosenberg did his own poll on how the West feels toward current events and biblical prophecy. The book deals with the factual prophecies of Ezekiel. Rosenberg interprets these prophecies in light of present events.
    We all must keep faith in God. If you're troubled and need support for your faith take a moment and discover my book on the great love God has for all of us.

  • Must read after the novels. Loved this book
    This book helped me understand what's going on in the Middle East. I thoroughly enjoyed the details Joel gave on the many, many interviews he's had with world leaders from Russia, Israel, US, etc., and not in a bragging sort of way. When I read his novels, I didn't know he knew so many famous people! He really does have an inside knowledge of these things. He doesn't just give opinions here, he has recorded the facts, with the dates of the interviews and trips to locations as well. The confidence these world leaders have in Mr. Rosenberg lend credibility to his work. The 21 pages of footnotes and documentation at the end of the book show great research on his part, and proof of his access to factual information. I enjoyed reading them as well. I believe the Lord's hand is upon him and using him to encourage believers in these times on earth.

    As a devout Christian, lover of Bible prophecy, and a student of the Bible for many years, I found this book expanded my view of Bible Prophecy as it relates to Israel, without his injected opinions. I have read his novels and thought Epicenter was the icing on the cake. It was hard to put this one down until I finished it. This book has furthered my excitement for the Lord's coming. These things are going to happen whether or not anyone wants them to. I am not afraid of the future, because I know where I'm going....more info
  • Epicenter -- Joel Rosenberg
    This book is a must read for all who are interested in where we are as it relates to Bible prophecy. What an eye opener! After reading this book you will never view the news the same way again....more info
  • Worth moving to #1 position in your que of books to read!
    I am not an avid reader, but could not put this books down. If you have ever wondered what the fulfillment of Bible prophecy might look like given the current geopolitical environment then give this a read. It will make your hair stand on end, and if you believe in the accuracy and validity of the Bible it will help prepare you for defense of God's word in these rapidly changing times....more info
  • See the Future...
    Life might not unfold exactly as described, but Joel puts the pieces together in a most remarkable and believable way. He has tied up loose ends for me like no other author before. He offers a choice of possible scenarios. We don't know what will be, but when it comes to pass people will know there is a God in Heaven....more info
  • Detestable Rumblings
    Joel Rosenberg's "Epicenter" is absolutely the best explication of the Book of Ezekiel I have ever read! Also, one of a kind!

    Mr. Rosenberg--a true Jew for Jesus (and how many of *those* do we have these days, after Roman Catholicism, Martin Luther, and the Holocaust?!)--tackles the greatest metaphysical problem of our time, known as the Immanence of God - where in the world is He?

    Not only has this question long puzzled theologians, it has given rise to irreverent jokes (e.g., "I found Jesus! He was behind the couch!").

    Rosenberg knows that if you want to see God, you must seek Him out. Even then, it's like asking to see the doctor in the Emergency Room of a U.S. hospital: No matter how bad off you are, you will have to wait. (Worst-case scenario: a nurse finally says, "Okay, you can see the Doctor now." But she's mistaken, you can't see the Doctor at all because by that time, you're already dead.)

    A few patient individuals since Abraham's day have seen the Lord without having to wait until death. The prophet Ezekiel, for one, was granted an eyeball-to-eyeball with Yahveh after just six years of prayerful pleading.

    Ezekiel, as Mr. Rosenberg reminds us, is the first holy prophet whom God called "the Son of Man" (Jesus being the second). Ezekiel's ministry extended from 595 - 573 BCE, and he is the only Old Testament prophet to merit mention in The Guiness Book of World Records: Ezekiel once lay on his side for 390 days, eating bread made from the Lord's own dictated recipe: flour, water, yeast, and cow-poop. (The original recipe called for human excrement, but God finally allowed Ezekiel, who was squeamish, to substitute cow-pies for human turds: it's in the Bible, you can look it up; but I hope you never get that hungry [Ezek. 4:9-15]).

    Ezekiel's meeting with the incarnate Yahveh came when the prophet least expected it, during afternoon snack-time with the Jewish elders -- none of whom was willing, however, to try one of Ezekiel's chocolate-chip muffins.

    In the sixth year, in the sixth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the Jewish elders sat before me, the hand of the LORD God fell there upon me. I saw Him coming, a radiant figure - and when I looked up, lo! from His burning loins downward, He was like flaming fire! And above the waist, He was the color of bright amber. (Ezek. 8:1-2)

    The Jewish elders did not look up Yahweh's skirts, as Ezekiel did. They did not even see the Lord come or go. They noticed only that their friend Ezekiel, "the Son of Man," suddenly (*poof*) disappeared; and the elders were sore amazed.

    The Lord had snatched Ezekiel by a lock of his long, rather dirty, somewhat tangled hair, and hoisted him high above the streets of Jerusalem.

    "Son of Man," said Yahveh, "do you see what they are doing down there - the utterly detestable things that the people of Israel are doing?" (Ezek. 8:3).

    Ezekiel looked down. The first thing he saw was that his mystified houseguests - the Jewish elders - had ventured out into the street, to search for him. One of the elders pointed. The rest looked up. They saw him. They waved. Ezekiel modestly tucked his robes between his thighs, so that they could not look up his skirts and see his loins. But he did not wave back at them because he was distracted and appalled by what else he saw: the prophet of God (or "Son of Man," as God always called Ezekiel) espied the Jews of Israel, on rooftops all over the city, performing such human abominations, such whoring and sodomy and gormandizing, such idol-worship and such Sabbath-breaking and such nude sun-bathing, as made him want to vomit.

    "Do you see this, Son of Man?" said Yahveh. Ezekiel nodded. "Lo, you shall see things that are even more detestable than this!" (Ezek. 8:6). And the Lord was thinking at that precise moment of the Internet--2,000 years before it happened!

    Needless to say, Mr. Rosenberg has some pretty detestable things to show us. I'm not going to tell you what those things are: but if you want to find out, buy Joel Rosenberg's "Epicenter"! You won't be disappointed!

  • Epicenter 2.0
    Book written by Joel Rosenberg, Orthodox Jew turned Baptist. He draws on both his Jewish heritage and his Christian knowledge to compare what is happening in current world affairs to many bible prophecies which he believes points to those current world events. Well researched, and written so the average person not trained in theology can understand.
    It is a true eye-opener to the affairs of the current times. No previous knowledge in Bible study needed. Good to have any bible handy to read passages as they are referred to while reading the book. For everyone regardless of faith or no faith....more info
