It it a relevant and all-to-likely story line. If you haven't read any of Rosenbergs works before, I suggest you read the Ezekiel option first, then read the Twelfth Imam series in whole. Joel is an end-times scholar who has a remarkable grasp of Biblical prophesy. It is amazing to see how many aspects of his previous novels have actually come to pass. I'm almost afraid to know what parts of this will actually happen in our lifetime. Then again, as a Christian, its not something to worry about. If you're offended by God and the Bible, these books are not for you unless you are interested in knowing what will happen in the End Times.
It explains so much of current events...
No, but I am amazed at how well he makes each character unique
It ranks TOP on the list.
The action and the truth behind the scenes.
He does great voices.
Well, the end of course. I got the ending I desired!
Joel is very gifted as an author and a great Man of God. A very likeable speaker and presenter.
One of the first where I was disappointed #4 wasn't there to read right away.
The first two of this series. Usually you guess how it's going to end. This one left me begging for the ANSWER.
The scenes of the Messiah appearing. Are there more? Which one is he going to choose? I want the next book right away. Love this series more than any other. Hurry and write it.
No, I think the title is perfect.
Hope next book comes out soon and really don't want it to draw out. I want a good ending and hope it's what I would like but could be a big surprise.
The story was suspenseful, the subplots meshed together very well, and the narrator was quite good. But the story was spoiled to some extent by a heavy dose of religious fervor which permeated the story, and seemed inappropriate for this kind of thriller. Several parts seemed way too maudlin, like the part where CIA spies rushed to intercept an A-bomb and found time to embrace Jesus.
The story line starts full of action and details, but after chapter 11 the true purpose of the book is reveal. The author political and religious views and the event horizon and true purpose, hidden with a techno-thriller theme. He becomes extremely verbose for the purpose and in support of his personal Christian belief. The story line suffers from this as the author continue to interrupt with his religious and political overtures that add nothing but distraction to the novel.
Extract this and it's an average book...
The detail of tactics and technology. Additionally, the deep understanding of both Christian and Islam historical past.
Fan-freaking-tastic narration with enough suspense in his inflections. One of the very best narrations!!!
No...but I'm still a techno thriller , political tactical war fan.
...next book for the author should caution the reader of his intent...
What can I say - this was, hands down, one of my favorite series of books! It is rare to find a collection of Christian stories so captivating & thought provoking! I have read some of the other reviews & am surprised about some complaints of too much Christianity in the story! I did not find this to be so & was absolutely inspired by those parts in which the thoughts or discussions were centered on and around Christ. To think of the courage & conviction a person must have in a country where Christians are so severely persecuted is tough, to say the least! Made me so very thankful to live in a society whose core is built around freedom of religion & speech!
I found myself skipping whole chapters when the Christian Conversion dialogs began
He is as good as I have heard
Depends on how much of the preaching was in it
An option to fast forward through all the biblical references, prayers and refrences to Jesus.
Absolutely- I'm not quite sure what to call the genre. How about force-fed religion with a sprinkle of a story.
The religious references, bible readings, prayers and references to Jesus by characters were so overdone that I could not tolerate listening to the entire book. This is only the second book I did not listen to completely in all my years wit Audible. I will remember to avoid this author.
Among the Best, I love stories about black ops versus the Crazies.
When the Iranian nuclear scientist rigs their warhead on the Syrian missile to trigger two seconds after launch taking out Damascus, the 12th Imam, his whole Government, and the Caliphate Leadership. Good stuff, happy ending.
Voice impersonations were good, especially the 12th Imam's. Easy to listen to generally.
The failure of the US President to act, completely feckless like Obama.
Wish we could be more decisive and insightful like Israel (or even Russia). Being PC is going to get us all killed.
A Sunday school teacher, or the Bible Belt.
No, No, never, too much time lost
All of them
Too much bible and not enough action. They talk about the bible for ten minutes to justify their action.
