In his bestselling 2009 book "The Islamic Antichrist", Joel Richardson's stunning research and analysis suggested that the biblical Antichrist and Islam's primary Messiah figure (the Mahdi) could be the same person. Now, taking a hard look at the most significant biblical end-time texts, "Mideast Beast" argues persuasively that the Antichrist, his empire, and his religion will come from the Middle East and not Europe as has been widely taught by many modern prophecy teachers.
Conducting interviews on this topic is the author of book, "Mideast Beast: The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist", and a weekly columnist for WND, Joel Richardson.

Published by WND Books, "Mideast Beast" completes and establishes the revolutionary argument introduced in Richardson's New York Times bestselling "The Islamic Antichrist", namely that the Antichrist will be a Muslim, whose empire will arise out of the Middle East.
Whereas most students of the Bible have long held that some form of humanism or universalist religion would catapult the Antichrist to world power, "Mideast Beast: The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist" systematically proves that the long awaited system of the Antichrist is even now before us and knocking at our door-virtually unnoticed by the church.
"I am firmly convinced that Islam is the single greatest challenge the Church will face before the return of Jesus, yet most are still either asleep or in denial," Richardson states in "Mideast Beast".
Through a scholarly and theologically grounded, yet simple presentation, Richardson thoroughly corrects the objections of critics, establishing beyond a doubt the biblical case for an Islamic Antichrist.
With large segments of the Christian missionary movement embracing a heretical method of outreach to Muslims, Mideast Beast cuts to the core of the matter, revealing the true nature and origins of Islam.
"A most engaging book... There is much to commend the argument for a final Islamic Empire rather than a Western or Roman Empire in the Day of the Lord."- Walter Kaiser, president emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
If, in fact, Islam is the religion of the Antichrist, the implications are earth- shattering. The church absolutely must consider this information as it formulates its approach forward with regard to prayer, intercession, evangelism, and missions. The questions and thesis presented in this book are simply not questions that the church can afford to ignore any longer.
After finishing Richardson's work, you too will be convinced concerning the looming challenge of Islam to the church.
"This book is refreshingly crisp - a must read for serious Christians and anyone who desires to understand the challenges facing us on our increasingly turbulent horizon." - Chuck Missler, internationally recognized prophecy expert and speaker
