Dateline Jerusalem, by Chris Mitchell, is a telling story of the battles and turmoil of the Middle East. As I started reading this selection, I found myself relating back to the news stories we’ve seen on the evening news and the special reports as thing flare up. What I didn’t realize at the time, is that I was reading a first hand account by a person, (Chris Mitchell), as seen through his eyes and lived through him as well. As a news reporter for CBN News stationed in the Middle East, Chris Mitchell has first-hand knowledge of the struggles those countries encounter. In the book, Dateline Jerusalem, Mitchell absolutely recounts his experiences as a reporter during war and peace throughout the area and applies the events taking place to prophecy within the Bible. Written in a chronologically, Mitchell takes readers through various events of the last three years. In vivid detail, he describes what daily life is like in a war zone. In one instance, he is hunkered down below the windows of his hotel room avoiding gunfire and stray bombs. Mitchell defines the Arab Spring and addresses it’s importance to future events. He discusses the growing world belief that Israel does not have a right to exist. He explains the Muslim Brotherhood, and the growing influence of Islam throughout the United States and around the world. Finally, Mitchell brings together current news events and Bible prophecy and explains how all these events culminate in one city: Jerusalem. As a reader, I have some knowledge of what the Bible says, regarding the area and Jerusalem, however, I am not well-studied. Mitchell was able to write this book in such a way that the average person is completely able to understand and relate to what he describes. With just general knowledge of current events, I was able to connect the dots Mitchell drew in detail throughout this book. I would recommend this book to anyone who is concerned with events taking place in the Middle East, as I believe everyone should be, and how they relate to the book of Revelation in the Bible. I would consider Dateline Jerusalem a must read. I liked to take this opportunity to thank Thomas Nelson Publishing/Booksneeze for the change to read and review this book. It is well worth the time and it may actually bring more attention to what is happening around us. Also, Chris Mitchell has a wonderful way of placing the facts in story form to keep the reader interested and glued to the pages.
