Russia Rising: Tracking the Bear in Bible Prophecy, a review

As soon as I heard about this book, I was interested in reading it.  I have come to appreciate Mark Hitchcock's teaching over the years and this book did not let me down.

With Russia in the news once again, Mark tackles of the issue of where that country stands in light of end times prophecies.  Although he writes from a pre-tribulation rapture perspective, I think anyone could appreciate the information about Russia in general and Putin as its' leader.

The Chapters are:
  1. There is a Bear in the Woods
  2. The Final Game of Thrones 
  3. Is Russia really in the Bible?
  4. Ezekiel's Prophetic Intelligence Briefing
  5. Triple Threat: Russia, Iran, and Turkey
  6. Vladimir Putin, Rising Czar
  7. Red Dawn, The War of Gog and Magog
  8. How Close Are We?
  9. What Does the Future Hold?
  10. It's Always Soon
Appendix 1; Ezekiel 38-39

Appendix 2: The King of the North: The Northern Confederacy by Dr. John Walvoord

Appendix 3: Common Questions Related to Russia, the Middle East, and the End of Days

People who like to read about prophetic end time events will welcome this book for the detail and the variety of possible scenarios the author provides.  I think it would be appreciated by any Christian who is interested in where Russia may be found in the Bible. Very interesting!

Russia Rising was provided by Tyndale House for the sake of review but the opinions are my own.

I appreciate your review. I would like to read it. Russia is always a country of interest to America. Just when we think we can relax another thing comes up! Jody
