Topic - Joel C. Rosenberg
The press already has billed President Obama's first jaunt to Israel since entering office as yet another charm offensive, a "symbolic visit" or simply a photo op. The White House does not appear to be festooning the four-day trip with any fancy predictions either.
He has been called a "modern-day Nostradamus" for his novels, which seem to be ripped from the headlines -- next year's headlines.
If the Fairfax resident's past novels have been prophetic, there might a reason: Mr. Rosenberg says his writing career was inspired by his interest in Bible prophecy.
He sees the books as serving an educational function for many Americans who, he says, are "anxious about the future of the Middle East" and want to learn more, but aren't interested in slogging through "900-page history books" to do so.
