'Showdown of the Gods" is a "last call" message to the globe to take seriously the crisis days in which we live. My hope is to awaken those who identify themselves God's people to the long-prophesied and stark reality of today's decadent world and point to a truly Biblical response.'

People around the world have been glued to their television screens because of the recent terrorist attacks on the United States. In "Showdown of the Gods", Victor Schlatter helps us understand some of the background manipulations that have been going on among the nations that have brought us to such a day as this. As George Giacumakis, PhD, a professor of history at California State University shares, "[Victor’s] comments on the positions of Islamic nations toward Israel are especially notable, even as he relates these positions to the statements of biblical prophets."
Although written before the New York and Washington attacks, "Showdown of the Gods" reads as if it was taken from the pages of today’s newspapers. Victor discusses events such as "suicide bombers" (P. 146); nations getting a bit edgy at "the prospect of getting their airliners and World Trade Centers blown up when they happen to pick the wrong side in an international dispute" (P. 18); and the fact that, "creeping ever closer to home is the physical threat of violence and terrorism that no longer recognizes international boundaries" (P.153).
He discusses the naïve concept of the Global Village, the Islamic "jihad", and the greed and ineptitude of so many leaders today, tying them all in with prophecies from the Old Testament. He shares that "the days may not be too far around the corner where some would even welcome…repressive sovereignty in contrast to the chaos which predictably may well be erupting…." He further warns us about "…the kind of worldwide conspiracy that seems to prevail these days…" and connects it with prophecies in the New Testament.
Victor’s background as a nuclear scientist, linguist and translator of the Bible in Papua New Guinea, representative of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, and extensive world traveler and lecturer prepares him to present a unique analysis of international affairs in the light of Scripture.
The world received a wake-up call in the recent attacks. Victor Schlatter helps us understand what that call means and how to respond to it.
'Chapter 5, 'Trumpets So Loud We Can't Hear them!' alone is worth the price of the book. Schlatter's insights into Scripture and how it's playing out in our life today makes the reader sit on the edge of his seat'
-Carol Anderson, Dir., Volunteer Network, Every Home for Christ
"In Showdown of the Gods, Victor Schlatter has again used his prophetic insight and voice to take on the priorities of the global community of nations. He calls attention to the evil manipulations of global states in furthering their own interests. In his own unique style, he adds a bit of humor to a very serious discussion of international priorities. Schlatter further illustrates his thesis of national greed and interests by the position that nations take in relationship to modern Israel. His insights on the positions of Islamic nations towards Israel are especially notable, particularly as he relates these positions to the statements of the ancient biblical prophets."
- George Giacumakis, PhD, Professor of History, California State University Fullerton
"At a time when most of the world has more questions than answers, Victor Schlatter strips away a carefully contrived media facade, revealing the dire forces behind international power plays. Urging a strong allegiance to the Living God whose prophets have shown us the final scenario, he exposes the false gods and their misguided agents on earth, warning us of the mischief they perpetrate among the nations."

"I have read untold books based on Revelation only to be left with something just not quite right. In his book Schlatter offers 'old' material in the refreshingly insightful manner of the Prophet. As Elisha with his servant Gehazi, he opens our eyes to see what is going on in the realm of the invisible... book to all who live 'outside the box'!"

"Once again the brilliant mind of Victor Schlatter has presented us with a challenging book on Israel. His scientific approach combined with his superb sense of humour and extraordinary knowledge of the Bible has produced a work even more stunning and provocative than his previous masterpieces. I thoroughly recommend this landmark work to anyone with a real desire to come to terms with the complexities of the ongoing problems in the Middle East."
