Time is Short

Joel Rosenberg definitely has a gift for piecing together the puzzle of current events through the lens of the Bible. This book is the story behind the fictional series written by this author. This is a fascinating peak into Joel’s actual experiences, which I found exciting as an ongoing student of eschatology. When you understand that the world is a stage where Biblical events will be played out, and they are happening right now, then you can’t help but get excited at what you see in the news. Just look at Israel right now. Jesus is coming soon and we better be ready to meet him.

Present Time Prophet

I believe God is using Joel to wake up America and the rest of the world. Joel is a Jewish Christian and he knows what he's talking about first hand. I would recommend this book to everyone so they will understand what in the world is going on.

Erratic and incoherent

More of the same, in the vein of the Left Behind series. The reading is quite simply abominable. I have hundreds of Audible books in my library, and this one is definitely the worst. If the author insists on reading his own books, I would suggest that he learn to pronounce the names of the world's leader's first. Also, he should take lessons in enunciation.

Interesting but a tough read/listen.

Where does Epicenter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among the none fiction books I've read I would put it in the middle.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the background information although a lot of it was conjecture.

What does Joel C Rosenberg bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I would not have finished the book if I had just read it. The voice kept my interest up.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Another apocolypse movie...

a little dated but still relevant

The bible portion may be correct...and that is the important part to understand the prophecy so we can see it's coming...the part of the audio book which suggested that the aftermath of the Iraq war would result in a stable Iraq has proven false...the part that says Putin would become a czar is proving true....a useful book and personally I find Joel's style and narration enjoyable...

Enlightening. A worthy resource.

Joel Rosenberg is a New York Times best-seller, and award-winning author. His book sheds light on the unfolding events in the Middle-East, which he sees as the 'epicentre' of our world.

Joel is a Messianic Jew who has lived and travelled in both America and the Middle-East. He has met and worked with many important figures, being called upon to advise in matters relating to his research.

The author encourages us to view our world - present and future - through the 'three lenses' of politics, economics and Scripture. Drawing upon news articles, published intelligence, and Biblical prophetic texts, he points toward an alignment between real-time events and end-times prophesy. In hindsight, Joel's books have been described as 'eerily' descriptive of subsequent world events.

Joel explains his books in these words:
"..no, I am not a psychic and I don't have access to secret government information. But I do have access to the Jewish prophets...and so do you. God has told us what the future holds for Israel, for the world, and for you, as Biblical events continue to unfold. It's all in the book...not mine, but His."

The book is well written, intriguing, and gripping, presenting a compelling argument. Intellectually sound, and offering a wealth of well-sourced research, the book is of interest to the initiated, and fully accessible to the layman. The narration is provided by Joel himself, which I found to be a well-paced delivery, and enjoyable to listen to. I highly recommend this book.

Food for thought .

With the recent events in the Ukraine.
Is Putin setting himself as the Gog,
re-taking and restoring the Russian Empire?
Deceit and deception at the heart of the corridors of power, this book opens up prophecy and slowly the mist clears so the reader looks at events with a different perspective.
