Introduction

Title: Earth’s Last Empire: The Final Game of Thrones

Author: John Hagee

Publisher: Worthy Books (Worthy Publishing Group)

Publication Date: 2018

Format: Hardcover

Length: 467 pages

OVERVIEW

Why should Christians care about the Israel versus Palestine conflict? Do recent political moves by Russia and the United States have biblical repercussions? In this book, John Hagee considers these questions and others, arguing that the End Times clock is ticking much faster than we think.

Individually, many sections of this book are well-argued and compelling. For example, Hagee’s descriptions of anti-Semitism throughout history are heart-wrenching and push readers to consider how even as Christians they haven’t cared enough about Jewish people. However, Hagee’s not a theologian trying to make the best possible case for why the End Times is coming and where it’s most likely coming from. He’s a man who deeply cares about Jewish people and believes American conservative politics is key to helping them. So, he frequently slides from analysis to impassioned pleas or asserting connections between concepts that aren’t as strong as they appear. On occasion, he also relies on somewhat dubious sources. The result is a book that might be worth getting for its sections on Israel but doesn’t make a truly convincing case that the End Times is eminent.
