Throughout church history, Christians have been tempted to view biblical end-times prophecies in light of their own time and place in history. Today many American Christians-especially readers of books like those in the best-selling Left Behind series-see the current events in Iraq and the Middle East as clear signs of the beginning of the end. But how accurate are such popular doomsday scenarios?Authors Pate and Hays offer a sensible approach to examining current events in light of biblical prophecy and geopolitical history. With clear and persuasive exegesis they answer questions about Saddam Hussein's Babylon and how it relates to biblical prophecy. For example, What is the significance of Hussein's self-identification with Nebuchadnezzar? And are the modern-day Iraqis related to the ancient Babylonians? Iraq-Babylon of the End-Times? is a healthy and irenic corrective to looming end-times misconceptions. It is also a reminder that Christians are part of the universal church, whose message is one of hope for all the nations of the world.
