what_in_the_world_is-going_onDr. David Jeremiah’s subtitle implies that his book is going to help explain current world happenings in light of Biblical prophecy, however I believe a more accurate subtitle would be “10 Opinions Why I Believe The World Is Going To End In My Lifetime.”

Some of this text is well written and researched, like his history of the Middle East and rebirth of Israel as a sovereign nation, but it pretty much ends there.   Some of his prophetic clues are vague speculation at best.  One example is prophetic clue two, the possibility that Israel is sitting on one of the world’s largest oil reserves.  He cites two verses, and the remainder of the chapter is dedicated to “what if” speculation.

Clue five is “Without a Trace” otherwise known as the rapture.  This chapter lays out his timeline with the rapture of the saints coming before the Tribulation.  I am not sure how this is a clue as to what is going on in the world today, unless the rapture has already occurred, and we are now in the Tribulation.

Another of his clues is that the United States is not mentioned in the Bible.  Again, I still am not sure how that is a clue of what is going on today.

I found this more to be an explanation of Dr. Jeremiah’s eschatology than a guide to what is going on in the world today.

Thanks to Thomas Nelson’s for allowing me to blog-review this book free of charge.
