Mit »Millenium« schließt Tom Holland an seinen weltweiten Erfolg »Persisches Feuer« an. Anno Domini 900: Von drei Himmelsrichtungen durch unerbittliche Feinde bedrängt, während in der vierten Richtung nur der Ozean lag, schien es, dass der christlichen Bevölkerung keinerlei Spielraum mehr blieb. Und im Schatten des Jahrtausendwechsels befürchteten viele, dass der Antichrist erscheinen würde, um die Welt in Blut zu ertränken und ihr Ende anzukünden. Doch das Christentum brach nicht zusammen. Vielmehr wurde in den Erschütterungen jener furchtbaren Zeiten eine neue Zivilisation geschmiedet. In weit ausholendem epischem Zugriff, der uns von der Kreuzigung Christi zum Ersten Kreuzzug mitnimmt, vom Prunk Konstantinopels zu den trostlosen Küsten Kanadas, ist »Millennium« die brillante Darstellung einer schicksalsträchtigen Revolution: dem Auftauchen Westeuropas als einer unterscheidbaren, expansionistischen Macht.

This book is a wealth of information, which is interestingly written and justified with documents. It is very thorough and informative, whilst also discussing a delicate issue courageously. No matter what you think about the Millennium, you won't be bored with this book! In addition, you will learn many facts about the situation in the Middle-East and Israel, which the newspapers refuse for some reason to reveal. The Finnish Christian TV-7, January 2008 One has to admire the author's knowledge of the Middle-East and the people living there; few have such expertise. When we add his knowledge of the Bible, there certainly aren't many people who can boast to know equally much. The book covers the basic Gospel too, and thus is also suitable for anyone who is still seeking. In all, this book is very extensive and it can be warmly recommended to anyone. The Finnish Christian Weekly magazine, December 2007 Reverend, author Pekka J. Sartola is without doubt one of the great literary talents of Finland. He is able to write theology with conviction, and his books can be well compared with those of Hal Lindsey or Tim La Haye. He writes fact with enthusiasm and exciting fiction comparable even with Frederick Forsyth or Tom Clancy and many others. Within the past ten years Sartola has succeeded in establishing himself as a foremost expert on the Israel, the Middle-East and eschatology, reaching an audience which for decades has been familiarized with it. Pekka Sartola is a beloved preacher, author and Bible-school teacher who for three decades has researched the subject. He is one of Finland's most popular lecturers and his literary works up to date by Autumn 2007 consist of ten books covering Israel, Islam, the Middle-East and eschatology. Millennium 1000 years of peace is his tenth book.
