How many of you enjoy an engaging novel that won’t let you put it down once you start into it? I must confess, much to my wife’s dismay, I’m one of those junkies! I’m here to say that if you’re also a part of that crowd, then you should get a copy of The Kremlin Conspiracy. *
It’s an up to the minute novel about a possible conspiracy in the Kremlin to disrupt their meddling in global affairs, especially as they relate to Iran, the Ukraine, NATO and the USA. In fact, if it’s anything like the author’s previous books, it might be further than up to the minute; it might be prophetic.
And that’s what sets the author, Joel Rosenberg, apart from any of his contemporaries and why he has become my favorite fiction author.
In fact, Joel was putting the finishing touches on his first book, The Last Jihad, while in Washington, DC on 9/11 as planes were crashing into the World Trade Center in Manhattan. What’s so special about that? I’ll let Joel tell you in his own words:
“On that beautiful sunny, crystal clear Tuesday morning, I was putting the finishing touches on my first novel , a political thriller called The Last Jihad, which opens with radical Islamic terrorists hijacking a jet plane and flying an attack mission into and American city. What’s more, I was doing so in a townhouse that was barely fifteen minutes away from Washington Dulles International Airport where American Airlines Flight 77 had just taken off. At that very moment, the plane was being seized and flown right over our home toward the Pentagon.”
That’s how prophetic Joel’s books tend to be. So much so that he has been invited to speak at the White House, Congress, and the Pentagon as well as being interviewed on every politically influential media outlet you can think of in the USA as well as many others around the world.
So what makes Joel Rosenberg so clairvoyant? He readily admits it’s no special “Sixth Sense” or anything like that; it’s his unique background. First of all, he is a Jew who believes in Jesus Christ as the messiah (a Messianic Jew). Besides that, he lived in Washington for 24 years, has worked for the Heritage Foundation, then ran Steve Forbes’ Presidential campaign in 2000 until Bush beat him in the primaries and then for Benjamin Netanyahu is his 2000 bid to become Israel’s Prime Minister. And that’s just the beginning of his credentials. Now he and his wife live in Israel.
Beyond all the above, Joel came to realize back in the early 2000’s that Ezekiel’s prophecies about Israel in chapters 36 and 37 had already been fulfilled and he assumed that the prophecies of chapters 38 and 39 couldn’t be too far ahead. That realization is at the heart of many of his novels and is what makes them escatalogically prophetic as well as literary successes (He is a five-time winner of the “Retailers Choice Award” for best books of the year in fiction and non-fiction categories.)

In the meantime, settle into a very comfortable chair with The Kremlin Conspiracy, because once you start, you won’t want to get up!
