The Tehran Initiative written by Joel Rosenberg is the second installment in the riveting Biblical/end-time event series. The book is fast paced, action packed and full of interesting twists. I read the book from March 2nd to March 5th and could not put the book down.
The good – the book is well written and researched, keeps you riveted to the book, and the characters are believable. I did learn about the philosophy of the leaders of Iran, their beliefs and their jihad against little Satan and great Satan. This book events could actually play out in real life and I hope not.
The bad – To be honest, I agree overall with Joel regarding Iran and the powder-keg that could lead the world to war; however, part of me was a bit turned off due to constant interposition of Rosenberg’s desire for America to attack Iran. Even though the president William Jackson is described as not ‘getting’ the threat of a nuclear Iran, I found myself agreeing with Jackson. To me, Joel keeps beating the drums of war over and over again.
If you like end time and political thrillers this book is right up your alley. I will read the third book and overall, I would give this book about a 3 out of 5.
