Rosenberg serves as a political columnist for "World" and he has also had his work published by the "Wall Street Journal", "National Review", and "Policy Review". He and his wife, Lynn, have four sons and reside near Washington, D.C.


At the beginning of his first novel, "The Last Jihad", he puts the reader inside the cockpit of a hijacked jet, coming in on a kamikaze attack mission against the President of the United States. This leads to a war with Saddam Hussein over weapons of mass destruction and was written nine months before the September 11th attacks, (a revised edition takes the event into account) and the war with Iraq, but it was published in 2002. [Rosenberg, Joel C.: The Last Jihad, Author's Note. Tyndale House, 2006.] When published, "The Last Jihad" spent 11 weeks on the "New York Times" best-seller list, reaching as high as number seven. It also appeared on the "USA Today" and "Publishers Weekly" best-seller lists, hit number four on the "Wall Street Journal" list and hit number one on

Rosenberg's second book, "The Last Days", opens with the death of Yasser Arafat and a U.S. diplomatic convoy ambushed in Gaza. "The Last Days" spent four weeks on the "New York Times" Best Seller List, hit number five on the "Denver Post" list, and hit number eight on the "Dallas Morning News" list.

His third book, "The Ezekiel Option", was released in the summer of 2005. The story takes place after The Last Days and The Last Jihad, and it depicts the story of Russia becoming a dictatorship and subsequently forming an anti-American alliance with Iran. The book describes the author's interpretation of the War of Ezekiel 38-39.

His fourth book, "The Copper Scroll", was released in August 2006. "The Ezekiel Option" contained the War of Gog and Magog which has ended with Israel's enemies in ashes. But a new evil grows as archaeologists race to solve the clues in "The Copper Scroll" to find the Ark of the Covenant.

His fifth book, "Dead Heat", was released March 18, 2008. The story depicts the rise of a new dictator in Iraq. In Asia, China is making threatening new moves toward Taiwan, while North Korean forces appear ready to strike south. In the Middle East, Israel is feverishly trying to complete the Third Temple and oil prices are surging. And in the wake of all this, the second term of the President of the United States is coming to an end. Now the battle to succeed him is heating up into one of the most fiercely contested presidential elections in American history.

His book "", [] was published in September 2006. An accompanying DVD was produced in the summer of 2007. []

Media appearances

Rosenberg has been interviewed on more than 300 radio and TV programs, including ABC's "Nightline", CBN's "The 700 Club", CNN "Headline News", Fox News Channel, MSNBC, "The Rush Limbaugh Show", "The Glenn Beck Program", and "The Sean Hannity Show". He has been profiled twice by "The New York Times", and was the subject of two cover stories in "World" magazine. He has spoken all over the country at universities, churches, political events, bookseller conventions, fund-raisers, and even the International Spy Museum.

Criticism and controversy

Media Matters for America criticized Rosenberg's July 31, 2006, "Paula Zahn Now" appearance that "featured a segment on 'whether the crisis in the Middle East is actually a prelude to the end of the world,' marking the third time in eight days that CNN has devoted airtime to those claiming that the ongoing Mideast violence signals the coming of the Apocalypse." [cite web|url=| title=CNN still fixated on Apocalypse predictors, still ignoring alleged invitation to White House, Capitol Hill| work=Media Matters for America| date=2006-08-01] It featured Rosenberg comparing apocalyptic Scripture in the Bible to modern events, which he views through what he calls the "third lens of scripture."

Rosenberg's views on the Ezekiel 38-39 war of Gog and Magog and the end times are also not fully accepted in the Christian community. Partial preterist Gary DeMar has debated Rosenberg on this subject. []
