Both books have been prepared by an author who has written several works on the subject of Roman Catholicism. The subtitle of the first book is "Evangelicals, Catholics, and Israel, Conspiracy of the Ages". Wilson Ewin
has ministered among French Canadians in Quebec since 1953. He has carefully followed and written about changes and developments in the Roman Catholic Church, especially since their Vatican II Council, 1963-1965.
In this volume (118 pages) he presents and documents the thesis that the Roman Catholic Church, traditional Communists/Socialists such as Mikhail Gorbachev, and the nation of Israel are moving together in an "ecumenical" movement that will lead to a world church-state or "New World Order". He documents this extensively from papal pronouncements, organizations such as the Gorbachev Foundation now headquartered in San Francisco, and public and private meetings involving the papacy and world leaders including President Clinton, Israel's Yitzhak Rabin, PLO's Yasser Arafat, and Evangelist Billy Graham. The book is so current (published Feb. 1996) that it includes the assassination of Prime Minister Rabin. The book includes numerous photographs supporting the written contents.
The book is presented in four chapters with an introduction, a conclusion, and four pages of endnotes documenting the contents. Chapter One deals with the main thesis that a New World Order is close, how it will come about, and Biblical support predicting it. Chapter Two presents the Roman Catholic Church's involvement in the New World Order. Chapter Three introduces how Protestant Evangelicals are being led into this new order by certain leaders. Chapter four traces the history of Israel from Abraham to the modern Israelis, how world attention is increasingly being focused on the land of Israel and Jerusalem, and how eventually God's Son, Jesus the Messiah, will bring deliverance and justice by His personal return to this earth. Ewin is a premillennial dispensationalist who sees in the Bible a future for Israel in the Promised Land.
The book concludes on a triumphant note for God's people who believe the Bible. Overall the book is a well-written analysis of the times in which we are living and what the Bible tells us to expect in the future. Unless a person continually keeps up with world happenings as they involve Roman Catholicism, Socialism, and Israel – with a Biblical perspective – they may not be aware that the things in Ewin's book are going on. In both books, the author provides information and comfort that all true Christians need to have. The endnotes provide information for further reading and research.
The full title of the second book is "For David My Servant's Sake and for Jerusalem's Sake Which I Have Chosen (1 Kings 11:13)
" with 99 pages. Comparing both books, I found much "overlap", but taking each book on its own merits, this does not hurt too much. The second book is a "wake-up" call to warn the Jewish community for the seducing power and intrigue of the Vatican. In his foreword, the author refers to his contacts with many Jewish leaders, followed by his "exercise of love for Israel at this time of need". As one who has gone through the Second World War, and adapting his style to Jewish readers, he describes his experiences in a way that arouses the interest of his readers. Sometimes referring to historic events from centuries past, he makes a link between the years of the war, and the years immediately following, leading up to Vatican II. Mr. Ewin sees current Ecumenism as a Trojan horse, and he describes the Jesuits' devices and strategy with regard to Israel, in view of a coming "peace" agreement. He also shows how Jerusalem is at the very centre of today's worldwide interests. The book concludes with a summary of prophetic events.
I do not necessarily agree with all details in both books, but I believe the author provides compelling evidence in writing and in documentation, with regard to the important role the Roman Catholic Church is and will be playing in end time events.
