Mark Hitchcock’s ‘The Coming Islamic Invasion of Israel’

9781590527887

Mark Hitchcock has penned an incredible number of books on Biblical Prophecy. ‘The Coming Islamic Invasion’ is his latest. In it he explores Ezekiel’s Book in regards to the Russian/Islamic War against Israel in the End Times. This book is the third in his current series. As has been established many times of late by a plethora of authors, Mr. Hitchcock goes through the signs of the times, Israel’s enemies, & God’s role in it all.

While the book is full of wisdom & knowledge brought to us by a dedicated student of prophecy, I felt it was a replay of thoughts. Maybe we’ve just been inundated with Ezekiel-themed books recently. Whatever the cause, I was hoping for some sort of new declaration or new insight into End Times research.

Not taking away from the talent of the author, to me, I found it dry & repetitive. It just seems to deliver information without passion. No one has explained the prophecy better than the Prophet Ezekiel himself. Perhaps that’s because he was so passionate about relaying his prophecy to us. While theories differ as to the identity of the nations involved (I disagree on at least one named by Hitchcock), the information that Ezekiel provided us hasn’t changed. For decades, readers have been treated to the same information on the same chapter.

Hopefully, as his series progresses, Mark Hitchcock will go deeper into lesser known prophetic Scripture instead of popular ones. Whether we know who’s involved or not, the primary wisdom lies in trusting God for our futures & believing in His Son, Jesus Christ. All else fails in comparison.

Of all the Ezekiel-inspired, non-fiction pieces, this one doesn’t get my top vote. It contains the right information with the right intention & for that I give it a 3 star rating.

The Bracelet: Dorothy Love

_225_350_Book.1421.cover Celia & Ivy grew up together, more like sisters than cousins. Both lost their mothers when they were young. Together they thrived under the watchful eyes of Celia’s father, David, & their housekeeper, Mrs. Maguire. But, that’s where their similarities end.

While Celia has chosen a path of love & helping others, Ivy has become an introvert, more content to hide away & read. Engaged to the dashing Sutton, Celia busies herself with wedding preparations & her various charities. Ivy participates, but at a distance with a guarded heart.

But, as Celia’s engagement becomes more of a reality, things begin to grow darker for their family. David’s health is steadily declining & a nosy reporter has started digging into the family’s troubled past. He believes that the death of Ivy’s mother & of another, unnamed woman, were more sinister than the cousins have believed. Does the family residence hold secrets of murder?

Strange notes then gifts are delivered to the family residence. Celia’s intrigue gets the best of her & she simply must know if the reporter is really onto something. As she delves deeper into the past, will her family survive what comes to the surface?

‘The Bracelet’ had a great plot & Celia is a fabulous lead heroine. Ivy’s character is intricate & at times a bit confusing. There are quite a few members of the supporting cast so readers will need to be on their toes to keep up.

Set in the pre-Civil War Era, one must keep in mind that certain racial & social barriers were in place. There are a few racial remarks, but they aren’t overdone or graphic.

At times the book is a bit wordy & in my opinion, it is unnecessarily long. I wish the author had spent more time developing the mystery aspect of the plot instead of the romance. Once we knew Sutton & Celia were to be wed, it was pretty obvious that they were in love. It wasn’t necessary to keep driving the point home.

Regardless, it is still a good work of fiction & historical fiction fans will be pleased with it. I give it 4 stars.
