Mideast Beast completes and establishes the revolutionary argument introduced in Joel Richardson's New York Times bestselling Islamic Antichrist, namely that the Antichrist will be a Muslim, whose empire will arise out of the Middle East. Whereas most students of the Bible have long held that some form of humanism or universalist religion would catapult the Antichrist to world power, Mideast Beast: The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist systematically proves from that the long awaited system of the Antichrist is even now before us and knocking at our door.
Through a highly scholarly, theologically grounded, yet simple presentation, Richardson thoroughly corrects the objections of critics, establishing beyond a doubt, the Biblical case for an Islamic Antichrist. With large segments of the Christian missionary movement embracing a heretical method of outreach to Muslims known as "Chrislam" or "The Insider Movement", Mideast Beast cuts to the core of the matter, revealing the true nature and origins of Islam.
After finishing Richardson's work, you too will be convinced concerning the challenge of Islam to the Church. Some topics covered and questions answered:

The narrator is excellent, and the book is one you will want to listen to again and again. As well as the sources referred to in the book. It is a masterful work taking time to give the full opposing view. Every Christian should hear it.
I think this entire book is fascinating, even amazing, but what I really liked here is the introduction in which the author provides rules for interpreting the eschatology of the Bible. I would go one step further and say they are good rules for interpreting the Bible generally.
This book would be good for anyone wanting to get their teeth into the Old Testament prophets and the book of Revelation. It makes sense of many texts which baffle proponents of the popular European based Antichrist theory. If you think you can never make sense of the end times and the Scriptures that deal with the end, Joel supplies a very helpful framework to begin to deal with them.
Increasing my ops tempo by allowing storytellers to whisper in my ear(buds).
This is a book for those wanting to know more about the modern debate over Biblical end-times prophecy. Before this book I had already read Richardson’s earlier book GOD’S WAR ON TERROR, so I knew full well what the title implied. This book is a more focused treatment on the idea that the Antichrist of Orthodox Premillennial Christian Eschatology will be of Middle-East origin. I think he makes a good case. Richardson here explains cogently how the conventional idea of an Antichrist of Roman-European origin does not hold up to close scrutiny. The idea that Ezekiel’s Gog and Magog are not Russia—as many Premillennial divines have traditionally taught—but are demonstrably proven to be the Antichrist and Asia-Minor (modern-day Turkey) is well developed by Richardson. He cites the many related scripture references that make it clear that Russia is not a satisfactory match for Gog and Magog. His explanation of how the Islamic Caliphate, headed by the Turks, neatly fulfills all the scriptural requirements for the fourth kingdom of Daniel chapter 2 and the fourth beast of Daniel chapter 7—and that Rome patently does not.
The book is narrated by Joe Geoffery who reads the book in an inflectionless monotone that is sleep-inducing. This is a non-fiction book, so there are frequent lengthy quotations of sections excerpted from related books. When shifting from Richardson’s text to the quotation Geoffery offers no audible cue to help the listener mark the transition. He does not even grant the listener an extra pause, but maintains the same pace that he gives for breaks from one paragraph to another. In the main, Joe Geoffery is more of an obstacle to understanding the text than he is an enhancement. To his credit, he does have precise diction so it is easy to understand the words he is saying.
Woke me up.
Scary but true makes you wake up to what is happening in the world and to wonder why the governments of the world are mute to the dangers although they are well aware of them.
Biblical, logical, well organized, thoughtfully presented, very well researched! Highly recommend to all students of 'end-times' prophecy.
This book backs up each section with scripture. Very well researched and excellent delivery. This book is for the seeker of bible knowledge who has studied the bible.
