5-star reviews for Farah’s ‘most controversial book ever’



WASHINGTON – When Joseph Farah, the man who started the first independent online news agency and wrote mega-bestselling books in collaboration with others, determined to write what he called his “most controversial book ever” on the subject of the Coming Kingdom of God on Earth, he wasn’t expecting rave reviews.

But that’s exactly what he got with “The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians and the End of the Age.”

The book, among the bestsellers at Amazon in the prophecy and eschatology categories, has received 75 percent 5-star reviews from the audience of the nation’s biggest retailer.

Farah said he was shocked not so much by the accolades, but by how little criticism and ostracism he has experienced for the controversial positions he takes in the book – all, he emphasizes, entirely backed by Scripture.

“I really expected far more antagonism than I have experienced,” he said.

Farah said what he teaches in the book is practiced by only a tiny minority of those who call themselves Christians – and most who do are messianic Jews or those Christians who consider themselves part of still-small Israel-centric movement searching for the roots of their faith in the Hebrew Scriptures.

“I would say it’s somewhere around 1 or 2 percent of the believers today,” Farah said. “But it is growing – in leaps and bounds.”

“The Restitution of All Things” is something of a manifesto for that budding movement – the first effort to tie together some of the common denominators of the loose collection of Sabbath-keepers not associated with the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, or any other denomination.
