REVOLUTIONARY UNREST SPREADING THROUGH EPICENTER: “Inside The Revolution” releases today in paperback

Today, the paperback edition of Inside The Revolution:  How the Followers of Jihad, Jefferson, and Jesus Are Battling to Dominate the Middle East and Transform the World, releases nationwide. The book describes the last three decades of battles between:

  • the Radicals, Muslims who believe Islam is the answer and violent jihad is the way;
  • the Reformers, Muslims who believe that Islam is the answer but jihad is  not the way, that the Islamic world needs more freedom, more openness, more protection of human rights and civil rights and even democracy;
  • the Revivalists, Middle Easterners who have renounced Islam and come to believe that Islam is not the answer, jihad is not the way, that following Jesus Christ is the way, and that the only hope for the region is to skip back in history before Islam and revive what they once had: first century, New Testament, Biblical Christianity;

I hope you’ll find the paperback edition (which is available at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Borders, and any of your favorite Christian bookstores, like CBD, Parable, Family Christian Bookstores, and other retail outlets) particularly helpful in sorting out the revolutionary dynamics driving the current clashes underway in North Africa and the Middle East. What do the Radicals really believe? How far are they willing to go to get what they want? Why do they want to overthrow all the regimes in the Islamic world and create a caliphate? Why do so many believe the Twelfth Imam is coming any moment? That said, who are the Reformers? Why do they believe the Radicals are crazy and that democracy is the answer? Is there any hope of the Reformers gaining the upper hand and transforming the region for good, and not for evil? Most importantly to me is the opportunity to take you inside the world of the Revivalists. Who are they? What do they believe? Why are they so courageous in preaching the gospel, making disciples and planting new churches? How are they using satellite TV, radio, and the Internet to advance the Kingdom in dramatic and exciting ways? From Morocco to Egypt to Iraq to Afghanistan, I interview men and women who are putting their lives on the line for their Savior and Lord, and are convinced more than ever that they are on the winning side of history and that Jesus Christ is coming back very soon. I hope you find it useful.

Inside The Revolution releases amidst intensifying unrest that continues to spread to nations throughout the epicenter. Reformer protest movements are building, especially in Libya, Iran, Bahrain and Yemen, but Radical and Resister governments are cracking down more brutally, leading to hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries. Here’s a summary of the latest news over the last few days:
