Tonight on his website, Glenn Beck will premiere his new documentary film, “Rumors of War — Part Two.” As with Part One, I was interviewed for the film and have seen a rough cut of the film. While I don’t agree with all of the points made in it, I found it quite powerful and well made and highly recommend that you watch it. Indeed, I applaud Glenn and his team for making and releasing the film.
The documentary examines current events and trends in the Middle East and the Islamic world from various vantage points — Biblical End Times theology, Jewish End Times theology, and Islamic End Times theology. It discusses the latest threats from the Radical Islamic world to Israel, the West and our allies. It features a wide range of Jewish, Muslim and evangelical Christian authors and commentators in a balanced yet provocative and fascinating way. Among them:
- Dore Gold, former Israeli ambassador to the U.N.
- Reza Kahlili, former CIA agent inside Iran and author of A Time To Betray
- Tim LaHaye, author of the Left Behind novel series
- Brigitte Gabriel, author of They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It
- Joel Richardson, author of The Islamic Antichrist
- Dr. Zudi Jasser, president of American Islamic Forum for Democracy
As far as I can tell, Glenn Beck is leaving the Fox News Channel in part because Fox is opposed to him devoting so much time on his program to End Times issues, Bible prophecy, Iran’s eschatology, and the linkage of these things to left wing efforts to sow seeds of revolution and chaos. It’s too bad, really. Again, while I don’t agree with everything Glenn says or believes, I’ve been amazed and impressed with how curious he’s been about important issues that few others in the media give time and attention to. What’s more, he’s attracted millions of viewers to pay attention to such issues and weigh their validity and importance. I’m grateful that he’s given me time on his program to discuss Bible prophecy and a Biblical perspective on current events. Will others TV hosts do so in the future? Only time will tell.
At 10am eastern this morning, I’m scheduled to be on Glenn’s radio show to discuss the film. I hope you can take some time to listen in.
