Publisher's Summary

The first page of Joel C. Rosenberg's first thriller, The Last Jihad, put listeners inside the cockpit of a hijacked jet, coming in on a kamikaze attack into an American city...but it was written nine months before September 11, 2001. As Jihad unfolds, an American president finds himself in a war with Saddam Hussein over terrorism and weapons of mass destruction...but it was published five months before the actual war with Iraq began.

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?

What the Critics Say

"The book is better written and more complex than Left Behind, to which it will inevitably be compared." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "Doesn't engage like the first 2 in the series"
    Would you try another book from Joel C. Rosenberg and/or Patrick G. Lawlor?

    When I choose a title, I like it to stay generally within the bounds of the appropriate genre. This one, for me anyway, includes a bit too much theology and tends to slightly muddy the waters. Keep in mind it is still a good story, and the vast majority will likely enjoy it, but it is now what I was looking for. I will try to give book 4 a try before abandoning the series, but for some reason it simply just did not work for me.

    "a scary myopic wet-dream"

    jolly good luck with this holy-rollin' doctrinaire tome. it's almost irresponsible, what the author dreams up and forces down the listener's throat. yikes. this kind of stuff should be kept among friends.

    Story
    "Joel Rosenberg is a fraud"

    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.

    Story
    "Mr. Rosenberg takes to the pulpit"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joel C. Rosenberg again?

    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.


    Did Patrick G. Lawlor do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes he has done well in all three. Turns out he could give sermons on Sunday if the book reading slows down.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    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).


    Any additional comments?

    No thank you.
