I just finished Epicenter by Joel Resenberg. It is the most remarkable book I've read in a long time. He tells about the plot lines in his novels The Last Jihad, The Last Days, and The Ezekiel Option and how he came up with them. What makes them all remarkable plot lines is that major elements of the stories have come to pass very quickly after he wrote them. In Epicenter he recounts the many experiences he had interviewing world leaders, reporters, and not so average people. He focuses the chapters in Ezekiel 36-39, which talk about the last days, to come up with the premise that Russia and Iran will jointly lead a coalition against Israel and threaten her so badly that no other nation will come to her aid. God will save her and show all nations that He is the God of Israel.
Joel Rosenberg is an evangelical Christian, but also a Jew. He calls himself a Messianic Jew. That is a Jew who believes that Jesus was the Messiah and will come again to earth. He had traveled the world in many capacities and had many remarkable experiences that seem to have allowed him to see the fulfillment of the Battle of Gog and Magog. In Epicenter he shows the world events that are happening and how they might lead to the fulfillment of the prophecies in Ezekiel. His theories are not so far feched. While many people including world leaders, refuse to believe that these things could happen, many of them are happening right in front of us if we will see them. He has set up a website to continue to bring events to our attention.
It is a powerful testimony of a true believer and one that I think everyone who waits on the Lord should read, if only for another possibility.
