Rosenberg's second novel, The Last Days, opens with the death of Yasser Arafat and an American president pressing for peace in the Middle East...but it was published 13 months before the actual death of Yasser Arafat.
Now comes The Ezekiel Option, an explosive new political thriller that literally feels ripped from tomorrow's headlines. With Saddam Hussein and Yasser Arafat out of the way, a dazzling era of security and prosperity seems to have come to the Middle East. With the help of an American president trying to spread freedom and democracy, the Israelis and the Palestinians have signed a historic peace agreement. Violence is down. Their economies are booming.
But a new evil looms on the horizon. A dictator is rising in Russia. Iran is feverishly building nuclear weapons. A new Axis of Evil is emerging, led by Moscow and Tehran. And Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy - two senior White House advisors - find themselves facing the most chilling question of their lives: Is the world rushing to the brink of an apocalypse prophesied more than 2,500 years ago?

"The book is better written and more complex than Left Behind, to which it will inevitably be compared." (Publishers Weekly)
I have now listened to the entire series. I really liked the stories, and was amazed at how well he called some of the happenings in his book in parallel with what is happening right now with the middle east and our economy. I have been recommending this series to all of my friends and family. It is less preachy than the left behind series, and i appreciated all of his information he included in his story about what part of the Bible he was using as a basis for his fictional story.
I think this book is great. I love the whole series. It is well written and I loved the way it was read. It makes you feel like you are there and viewing the whole thing. I would recommend this to all of my friends.
Excellent read (listen), kept us guessing at each turn. We found it well researched, enjoyable and thought provoking! Great job and I would recommed this book to all my friends.
At times during a pivitol point in the book the narrator rushed the book almost to where you couldn't undstand what he was saying.
The plot held my attention.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book, very good suspense and action and he seems to know the scriptures well. I am so looking forward to his other books in this series :-)
Rosenberg leads us into the story from the first book in the series and one wants to go on to see where it leads. But when he gets to the third book, he then tries to convert the reader into accepting Christ and shows in his book both Jews and Muslems who have done so and thus are "saved" in the final days.
I won't read anything else he has written.
This is a bible based writer and although not so much religious faith but historic religion tied to current events. I loved it. The story moves well and has a lot of information.
His writing seems logical and the story carried a lot of information.
Patrick puts the right drama for each character. He also speaks with urgency that carries you away with him.
Hero and heroine captured, separated, tortured. A real tense time.
I am listening to all of Rosenberg's series. I hope the next two are as good as the last two.

I stumbled on to this series about a month ago and after the first two puchased the next three. I was quite surprised to find all the Jesus thumping in the middle of the third volumn in an adventure storey now about destroying Isrial. I came for the adventure and action and look else where for religeon when I choose. I have no prejudice against Christianity but am not fond of its incertion in action books at the level it was here.
Now only because they are in my library, I have started the fourth. Had I read three before ordering the rest of the series I would have stopped there.
Yes he has done well in all three. Turns out he could give sermons on Sunday if the book reading slows down.
Hero, action chick, globle politics. It has some of the ingrediants but with the religeon came wild and nearly crazy sciencelessness (that is a word cause you read it on the internet).
No thank you.

Not so far. Just concluded the first part and am seriously considering putting it down. Between fundamentalist witnessing and theology lessons on the Old Testament, I am feeling hugely overdosed on religion.
Not without the caveat that the book spends an inordinate time postulating on religion.
He is okay. I have no specific issues with the narrator or his work.
I think if I had known the extent religion plays in the book, I would have chosen differently.
