If you watch the news its always there. The Gaza Strip, Jerusalem .. the Middle East – its a story in itself. one that many of us, i think, do not truly and completely understand. its a rich and dangerous history; full of prophecy that is currently being fulfilled and much that is still to come.
As a Bible believer I am all too aware of the value of Israel; we are told often in scripture in fact, to watch and be ready. It is sad that this little spot of land, such a small country, is an important time piece in the End Days.
I was given the chance to read Dateline Jerusalem; Chris Mitchell, a reporter for CBN stationed in Jerusalem does quite a good job pulling together various details for us in this book. He shares history, as well as what we see and read in the news each day. While at times I found the reading a bit dry and hard to follow, it was not due to a lack of information. Sometimes I think there was almost too much; overwhelming at points.
As one who very much enjoys studying the End Times, I was hopeful I would see more scripture; that he would tie things together a bit more than was done in the pages of this book. I do commend him though for all that is within this one.
“We live in a world where we cannotafford to be ill informed. What happens in the strategic Middle East, Israel,and Jerusalem is critical. It matters to you. Today’s news might focus on Washington, New York, London, or Moscow, but history’s final chapter will be written in Jerusalem.”
