King David: Faith Lost and Found

By Jack Engelhard

 

That’s quite a fix to be in when not only have you run out of answers, but you’ve also run out of questions.

 

How many times can we ask – Why did God let this happen?

 

I’m here on the question of Mumbai, India, the slaughter that took place, and in particular the Jews who were singled out for special torture and murder by Islamists.

 

Via e-mail messages, I’ve been getting many words of understanding and comfort, but none of them works for me. Have I lost faith? That can never happen, not with my genes that date back to my Biblical namesake, Jacob. But something did make me teeter. I lost the connection. This happens to me now and then, certainly when I think of the Holocaust. Why did God let this happen?

Robert Spencer on THE BATHSHEBA DEADLINE (and World War3)

Robert Spencer is a leading authority on Islam. His website www.jihadwatch.com  tells all on a daily basis. His latest book is titled STEALTH JIHAD. His breakthrough book and constant best-seller is titled THE POLITICALLY INCORRECT GUIDE TO ISLAM. Here are his comments on Jack Engelhard’s factual-novel THE BATHSHEBA DREADLINE – perhaps more timely today than ever, keeping in mind what happened in India and what keeps happening all over:

 

“A rousing thriller about clashing ideals, clashing moral standards, and clashing civilizations, THE BATHSHEBA DEADLINE is a page-turner with much more than just entertainment value (although it delivers that in abundance); it is an insightful, courageous look inside the headlines to reveal what we’re facing in our war on terror. Readers will learn more about the global conflict with Radical Islam from THE BATHSHEBA DEADLINE than they will from legions of supposedly expert media news analysts. Bravo!” – Robert Spencer.
