  • How real and serious is the threat of Radical Islam to American national security eight years after 9/11?
  • Are there any Muslim leaders who oppose the violence of the Radicals and is there any hope that such leaders will come to power in key countries in the Middle East?
  • How can we as Christians help strengthen our brothers and sisters who love Jesus in the Muslim world, and how can we reach out to Muslims here at home?

      "Encouraging and Enlightening"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      Absolutely, I would recommend it.


      What did you like best about this story?

      Rarely reported details about growing rejection of radical Islam and the encouraging progress within hard line countries. It was well researched and ended encouragingly. It gave me compassion for the people living in Iran and similar countries and restored my belief that we are more alike than different.

      Story
      "Blah blah blah... And David Beckman too. Really??"
      Any additional comments?

      Man this thing gets old fast! I love a good historical book with insight into thoughts and reasons behind world struggles, but this is the same stuff over and over and over and over and over again.

      Let me summarize the book:
      "So and so is a radical. He was radicalized this way. In 1978 he said this. In 1992 he said this. In 1998 he said this. In 2002 he said this. And in 2008 he said this. He wants to kill all Americans and Jews in the name of Allah.

      So and so is a radical. He was radicalized this way. In 1983 he said this. In 1996 he said this. In 2004 he said this. In 2005 he said this. And in 2008 he said this. He wants to kill all Americans and Jews in the name of Allah.

      So and so is a radical. He was radicalized this way. In 1980 he said this. In 1988 he said this. In 1995 he said this. In 2000 he said this. And in 2004 he said this. He wants to kill all Americans and Jews in the name of Allah."

      Get the point? Oh my god just get on with the story!

      Also, I don't know (since I haven't seen the text) if it is an error in the book itself or the narrator's fault, but at one point he's talking about how the leader of Iran ordered all billboards of soccer star David Beckman to be taken down. Really? David Beckman??? Next the immortal Michael Jordan will be called "international basketball star Michael Johnson." C'mon man.

      If you want to get beaten over the head about how every clown in the Middle East either is or will be a jihadist out for westerner's blood, read this book. If you want to skip past that and read actual insights into the Islamic Revolution, look elsewhere.

      Story
      "Beware - Very good,but..."
      Would you try another book from Joel C. Rosenberg and/or Mel Foster?

      Probably not


      What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

      Fine


      Could you see Inside the Revolution being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

      No


      Any additional comments?

      Feels a bit like listening to Fox News. While the facts seem reasonable at first, it feels like there is a strong Christian right bias. It begins with adjectives added before factual comments, and progresses to clearly Christian biased views. I found it increasingly difficult to believe the book, which I found very compelling, was not one sided. Granted, the author states his views and religious orientation at the beginning of the book, I found it harder and harder to believe I was listening to an unbiased view of events. I have probably listened to 300+ books and this is the first I have reviewed. It is close enough to fact that I wanted to warn of the bias I felt was embedded in the story. I am a republican christian, but I don't appreciate it when things presented as fact have a clear underlying bias. This book would have been much better had the author presented a neutral view.

      "Interesting But Clouded"

      This is an interesting and mostly factual book. It does give some great background on the most significant geopolitical problem of our time.

      But there's a hook. The author has definite and unconcealed bias. It taints information about, say, Jordan when the chapter ends with "I do and we all should pray for Jordan".

      I have nothing against prayer and practice myself. However, as religion is at the heart of this very serious problem, I prefer to get my background unadjusted by someone's faith. Bush and his god granted mandate is little different than any ayatollah's mandate. (lower case by choice)

      This is similar to adapting god to science. The liberal view of creation changes with each scientific discovery. Blah.

      So be prepared for a very biased, though still interesting presentation. But verify and investigate anything that you find disturbing to be certain is was not "adjusted".

      "Deceptive title"

      What a great title. And an even better subtitle but neither had anything to do with this book about converting everyone to the "right" religion.
