Carol Stream, Ill.—Tyndale House Publishers today announced that Joel C. Rosenberg, bestselling author of such books as The Last Jihad, The Twelfth Imam, Epicenter, and Implosion, is releasing Israel at War: Inside the Nuclear Showdown with Iran (e-book, $2.99) today, Oct. 15, 2012. The 100-page book, which will be released in e-book formats only where e-books are sold, will examine the current crisis in the Middle East and a possible war between Israel and Iran that Rosenberg, a former advisor to current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, sees as imminent.

“For years Benjamin Netanyahu has been warning his country, the United States, and the world of the dangers of Iran having operational nuclear warheads with both the will and the eagerness to use them to annihilate Israel,” said Rosenberg. “Now the hour of decision has arrived, and the stakes could not be higher. I have written this book, in part, to assess the magnitude of the threat and the varied dimensions of this fateful decision. Releasing it in an e-book format affords the reader the capacity to absorb this information in an almost ‘real-time’ manner.”

Rosenberg crafted Israel at War after twelve years of observing Netanyahu, the man now responsible for leading Israel through this crisis. In his extensive research, Rosenberg conducted interviews with a number of high-ranking Israeli and American officials who shaped his thinking for this book.

Rosenberg explores many topics in the book, including:


  • How did we get to this point?
  • Who is Benjamin Netanyahu?
  • How do Netanyahu and his closest advisors perceive the enemy, the timetable, the risks, and the endgame?
  • How will the Israeli leader’s complicated relationship with President Barack Obama affect his assessment of the road ahead?
  • What other personal and historical factors are weighing on his mind as he navigates this crisis?
  • What could be the consequences of a decision to go to war?
  • How does the current crisis fit into historical trends in the Middle East, and how could this crisis set the stage for Bible prophecies to come to pass in the years ahead?
