This is a very timely story, and not hard to imagine that there is a power in the universe greater than we are that is directing the whole story.
The mix of fact and fiction to make a plausible story.
The siccamore tree story.
This is an amazing relevant prophetic book. The information is on point with Biblical accuracy yet he would of benefited from an experienced writer editing the dialogue and brainstorming a more interesting framework for the story. The conversations sound like...you mean what do the conversations sound like...they sound like this. Do you mean they sound like this. Yes, they sound like this. Very juvenile and annoying.
No, why would I change the work of another.
This is the only book of his I have listened to.
I was not inspired by this book.
The beliefs of the Hebraic Roots Movement is that the Talmud is equal to the word of God. The Talmud says this of Jesus.
"Our Lord and Saviour is 'that one', 'such an one', 'a fool', 'the leper,' 'The deceiver of Israel,' etc. Efforts are made to prove that he is the son of Joseph Pandira before his marriage with Mary. His miracles are attributed to sorcery, the secret of which He brought in a slit in His flesh out of Egypt. He is said to have been first stoned and then hanged on the eve of the Passover. His disciples are called heretics and opprobrious names. They are accused of immoral practices, and the New Testament is called a sinful book. The references to these subjects manifest the most bitter aversion and hatred. [Joseph Barclay, The Talmud, pp.38, 39; cf Drach, op. cit I.167] (Omni Publications, 1964, p.18-19)"
The author says the book is 90% fact, and 10% fiction. The fact part is extremely interesting. The fiction part becomes very repetitive and boring, which is a shame. If I had not been interested as to where he was going, I would have dropped out long before the end.
Depends on how interested they are in prophecy. Surely, it is not an exciting read.
My two favorite topics are Baseball and Military History. But my favorite books of all time are Starship Troopers and Ready Player One.
Immediately I found myself criticizing both the author and narrator (one in the same for this book). As an avid Dan Brown reader/listener I kept finding spots in the book where I felt Jonathan Cahn could have used some tutoring from that renowned story teller by giving more historical context as well as some character development.
I slowly realized that I was missing the point of the book and told myself to pay attention to the author's intent.
Jonathan Cahn is not a great author nor is he a spectacular narrator. However if you remember my self instructed review headline while listening to this book, you'll find the importance and relevance of this story. Thus my 3 star rating of the story and performance and the contradictory 5 star overall rating.
A previous reviewer opined about the illegitimacy of the correlations that Mr. Cahn has uncovered. That reviewer is in denial and also missed the author's message.
It put me to sleep. I never got past the first three chapters. There was so much repetition of phrases that I became uninterested and quit reading. My wife told me to keep it up, so I might later.
Put some inflection in his voice. It is so monotone that it put me to sleep.
No change of character in his voices so I that I could not easily distinguish when he moved from one character speaking to another. No pauses between characters.
don't waste your money your money - this book sounds like it was written by someone in high school. Mindless clues that mean NOTHING! If I could get my money back for this I would.
I didn't bother to finish it....I could not see wasting ANY MORE OF MY VALUABLE TIME !
I purchased this because ancient mysteries are normally very interesting to me and provoke thought. I listened to this while driving across the country and literally had to turn it off every 45 mins because it was so dull. All the points are repeated, for effect I'm sure, but gets old really fast. I liked the concept behind the story and I think that it could have been presented in a different matter (more documentative style). I didn't agree with some of the first presented facts, as well, therefore making me question the rest of what was "fact". I wouldn't recommend this book.
The plot and "mystery" of this story si so transparent you find yourself wondering how the main character can be so dense. The author has strung a lot of coincidences together and tried to make it into some big hidden secret about America being the second incarnation of ancient Israel. Hinging entirely on 2 verses from the Book of Isaiah, the narrative completely ignores the fact that America is a Christian nation, NOT a Jewish nation, and that the ancient laws of Judaism do not apply to Christians, followers of the second covenant.
Don't waste your time.
