My hubby and I discovered Joel Rosenberg last year when someone recommended his book Epicenter: Why the Current Rumblings in the Middle East will Change Your Future. Epicenter was an amazing read! It made me want to read everything Joel Rosenberg has written! Implosion is non-fiction but it is incredibly intriguing and definitely a page-turner. If Joel Rosenberg's name sounds familiar, you may have seen him on Fox News or heard him on Talk Radio. They often interview him with issues pertaining to Israel and the Middle East. He's a political expert who's very gifted by our Creator with great understanding of world events, not to mention with the gift of writing. This book tackles the intriguing question: Is America an empire in decline or a nation poised for a historic Renaissance? It helps the reader understand the economic, social, and spiritual challenges facing the United States in the 21st century through the lens of biblical prophecy. It's very up to date, having been released this summer. It's a very, very timely book. If you can't afford to invest in a new book, I urge you--check out Joel Rosenberg's blog--just Google Flash Traffic. There are so many articles there that will give you wisdom and make you think about important issues.
