I’d forgotten how much I like novels by Joel Rosenberg. I read The Last Jihad, The Last Days, and The Ezekiel Project years ago. I’ve followed his blog www.joelrosenberg.com but haven’t read any of his books in a while.
Mr. Rosenberg is a brilliant writer with a firm grasp of world affairs, a strong Christian faith, and love for Israel. Most of his books are set in the Middle East, but in writing this new novel he looked to Russia for his antagonist.
The story of a Russian president determined to restore his country to its former greatness and young men determined to stop him, this book, so far, lives up to my expectations of a Rosenberg novel. I started it before bed last night and between running errands, completing my studies, and doing housework, I’ve read a third of the book already. I was hooked by page five. I’ll probably finish it by tomorrow but am hoping I can draw it out over a few days. I always hate finishing a great book!
If you need me today, I’ll be on my porch enjoying the sunshine and reading the newest Joel Rosenberg novel.
