Publisher's Summary

"I am firmly convinced that Islam is the single greatest challenge the Church will face before the return of Jesus, yet most are still either asleep or in denial."

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:

  • What about Psalm 83 & Isaiah 17?
  • Is Gog of Magog from Russia, or somewhere else?
  • What role does the nation of Turkey play?
  • Answers to critics.
  • What other scholars and commentators support this view?
  • Will Antichrist really claim to be YHVH God Almighty?
  • Why the Antichrist will not be a humanist.
  • What's comes next in the Middle East?
  • What the Church must do now.

    "A BOOK EVERYONE SHOULD LISTEN TO"

    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.

    "Balanced treatment of the prophetic texts."

    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.

    "More evidence for an Islamic Antichrist"
    What did you love best about Mideast Beast?

    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.

    "The Robe drip in Blood"

    I do not agree with Joel understanding of The Robe Jesus worn were the blood of His enemies. I had a personal visitation of Jesus in His priestly Robe. I smelt the Blood on His priestly Robe. Satan had attack me with so much evil and witchcraft. Jesus appear seating on His Thorne in The Order of Melchizedek. His Blood was so strong I could smell the cleaning power in it. What ever Satan was bounding me down with Jesus broke it with His Blood which was on His Robe. His Blood begin to cleaned all evil and darkness in the land. The spiritual atmosphere begin to clear up. I hope Joel get to read this. The Blood on Jesus Robe is The blood of Jesus.

    "Details details details"

    This a very good and intriguing view of end times. He provides a ton of research and scriptural backup. However, I think that he is repetitive to the point of tedium on some of the points (Gog & Magog for example). I found myself tuning out after while. Otherwise great book.

    "Great study & comparison of scriptures!"

    I so enjoy Joel's teachings and really enjoyed Mideast Beast. I'm glad though that he has, since completing this book, changed his teaching on Daniel 8 and that is why I gave 4*'s instead if 5. Although I would love an addendum- I wouldn't want to change the end of this book for it is wonderfully done! It shows the heart of the writer and it's a great testimony to our Loving Heavenly Father!!! Thank you Joel! Praying for a great harvest!

    "Convincingly Defies Conventional Wisdom"

    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.

    Thank you for your work on this book. Absolutely enlightening! Now prophecy makes sense! I had never heard such a interpretation that fits scripture so well.
