The Bible predicts that in the last days a charismatic leader will establish a global following in the name of peace. The Koran also predicts that a man will rise up to lead the nations, pledging to usher in an era of peace. The man in the Koran is called the Mahdi, or Islams savior. The man in the Bible is the Antichrist. Richardsons stunning research and analysis suggest...more

I was gobsmacked when I read this book. Absolutely blown away. I have read the Koran and have a small amount of understanding of it but this blew the lid off of anything I THOUGHT I knew.

How to explain this book is just hard. The author makes a credible and amazing case for the idea that the Anti-Christ will be of Muslim descent. He also paints a completely different portrait of Islam than groups like C.A.I.R. routinely espouse. In addition, he shows that the Koran is not the only holy book tha...more
Well researched, authoritative, and -- seriously off the wall!

Based on responses from fellow readers, I should perhaps elaborate on my reasons for reading, much less reviewing, this "hate-filled," etc. diatribe, the main goal of which is to expose Islam for what Richardson claims it to be -- namely, the key to Satan's plan for end-time world domination.

I had a problem, you see: one of the minor tropes in my new book Dualism is an end-time event known as "al Malhamah al Kubra" (literally, "the Sl...more
While the book was highly informative, presenting a wealth of absolutely accurate information about the beliefs within Islam, a couple of factors prevented this from gaining a fifth star.

First, where is the discussion of the Rapture of the Church? At several points, Richardson discusses dealing with what will happen concerning the Pahdi as if he will have to face it. If the Mahdi is indeed the Antichrist, as I believe he is, Richardson would not have to face him because of the Rapture. This is t...more

Shocking how well researched the material was. Anyone who believes that the Antichrist will come from Europe will be amazed how scripture plainly points to the Middle East.
Richard Cleary
Joel Richardson shows himself to be a man of great intellectual honesty in his approach to the prophetic writings of Islam. Please here this. Joel wants Muslim's to come to Jesus, who is not just a prophet but the fullness of Deity in bodily form. He is not your typical prophecy teacher interpreting every world event as the fulfillment of prophecy. He is man who loves the Scriptures, loves the Gospel, passionate about reaching the unreached Muslim people groups. Give him the opportunity to prese...more
Joseph Gudge
Very well researched and fairly balanced. I like that he is hypothetical in his notions when making his final comparison of Christian eschatology vs Islamic eschatology and that he recognizes that he doesn't have all the answers. Honestly, this is one of the best theology books on eschatology I have ever read (and it is on Islamic theology of all theologies), and I have read many Christian books on eschatology that seem less researched, realistic or even biblically accurate let alone balanced an...more

Much easier book on eschatology to read than the few I've read in the past 20 years. Every now and then parts are repetitive but the author's writing is straightforward and well organized. Could have done a better job of editing out the repetitive parts of the book. Best part of the book was the appendix. This book just makes me sad that religion even exists.

I was having trouble getting through this book, and then a friend from church gave me another book to read "The Coming Economic Armageddon." I've been reading it, instead. Hope to get back to this book one of these days...
Not sure I totally agree with the author's conclusion, but I will say that the parralels between the Mahdi of the Koran and the Antichrist of the Bible. Very interesting and well written.
Ernie Dawson
This is a very interesting book. It's very useful in trying to do paradigm shifts. We sometimes get ourselves into ruts and don't think our way out of them.
Wow. Just WOW. An amazing exploration of Bible prophecy, Muslim prophecy, and how the two are so tightly intertwined. This book will scare you.
Very eye opening for any Christian who is interested in biblical eschatology.

“God did not reveal every final detail for a reason. He rarely does. If He did, then we would be justified in simply waiting for the Antichrist to come and get us. We would be entirely justified in digging holes in the ground as secret hideouts to store our survival food. But instead, God desires us to actually wrestle with Him in prayer, not only for our own souls and those of our families, but also for the very nations that we live in and call home.” 4 likes
