In 1979, the Ayatollah Khomeini seized power in Iran, unleashed the Islamic Revolution, and allowed his followers to capture the American Embassy in Tehran and hold 52 hostages for 444 days. Thirty years later, New York Times bestselling author Joel C. Rosenberg takes you inside the Revolution. He explains how it happened, how Washington missed it, and how Iran could bring the world to the brink of nuclear war. Rosenberg argues there are now three movements poised to change the world forever, for good or for ill. The Radicals: Iran's senior leaders have stated publicly that the end of the world is "imminent"... if the West can be lulled to sleep... then the Radicals will soon be able to pull off a series of attacks that make 9/11 pale by comparison and could leave millions dead. The Reformers: "Aren't there any Muslims out there who think the Radicals are crazy and are willing to fight back against the jihadists?" Rosenberg is often asked. "Yes, absolutely. In fact, they are actually gaining real political power." The Revivalists: "Based on all the things we are seeing inside Iran today, I personally believe that if every Iranian who secretly believes in Jesus could come forward right now and declare his or her faith publicly, the number would top a million." -- an Iranian ministry leader.

It is a successor to Epicenter. Every few years or so I read a book which upends my previous understanding of a particular subject, and reminds me that relying on print and TV journalism for information leaves a lot to be desired. This is such a book. As I was reading it, I was hoping that governments were consulting Mr. Rosenberg for the priceless information he has gathered on Mid-East affairs, and indeed they do as he tells in the book. Page after page contains information vital for an understanding of today's dangerous world; Iran being the greatest of those dangers. This was published in 2009, but it is now 2013 and the book had lost none of its immediacy for me. You can keep up with Joel on his blog and @joecrosenberg on Twitter. Muslims (as well as Christians) should read it to know of the remarkable moderate leaders who have emerged in Afghanistan and Iraq, all as passionate against terrorism as is the west. How will it all end? Perhaps as in Joel's novels such as Damascus Countdown. Yet in the final quarter of the book we hear of the amazing march of Christianity in these nations. Could it be possible that this will accelerate to the level where the major threats become nullified? (This is not suggested in the book.) The stories Joel tells from his talks with mission workers are breathtaking, and utterly convincing.
