Terrorism, Jihad, and the Bible
Author: John MacArthur
Format: Paperback
ISBN: 0849943671
Publish Date: December 2001
Publisher: Nelson Books/W Publishing Books
Review: Released shortly after 9/11, this book particularly appeals to Christians interested in the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies. The author attempts to expose how the Koran is driving terrorism as he shows how can human beings be capable of such diabolical savagery in the name of religion. A short book, this work is not an in-depth analysis, but nevertheless provides information on the link between the current issues in the Middle East and the Bible; this information will be of interest to evangelical Christians.
