CBN News — In his best-selling 2009 book, The Islamic Antichrist, Joel Richardson’s stunning research and analysis suggested that the biblical antichrist and Islam’s primary Messiah figure, the Mahdi, could be the same person.
Now, taking a hard look at the most significant biblical and end-time texts, Mideast Beast: The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist argues pursuasively that the antichrist, his empire, and his religion will come from the Middle East and not Europe as has been widely taught by many modern prophecy teachers.
If, in fact, Islam is the religion of the antichrist, the implications are earth-shattering, Richardson writes. The Church absolutely must consider this information as it formulates its approach forward with regards to prayer, intercession, evangelism and missions.
The questions and idea presented in Mideast Beast are simply not questions the Church can afford to ignore any longer.
