Prophecy and the Fundamentalist Quest: An Integrative Study of Christian and Muslim Apocalyptic Religion
This work traces the origins of apocalyptic prophecy in Christianity and Islam through in-depth examinations of several texts found within the Bible, the Quran, and the Hadith. The author contends that Christianity and Islam, often seen as two of the primary fundamentalist and proselytizing world faiths, remain pitted against each other in an ongoing struggle to impose their religious ideology on the rest of the world through either force or persuasion. The religious prophecies discussed in this book are largely focused on end-time or apocalyptic scenarios (such as the Book of Revelation from the Bible's New Testament, the prophesized hour of judgment in the Quran, and the Book of Tribulations in the Hadith). The final two chapters provide an analysis of current world politics, including the Iraq War, within the context of Christian and Islamic prophecy.

Obviously Hassan has presented her own view about the founder of Ahmadia Islam.Her view that there were merely 50,000 followers of the community at the demise of the founder is not based on fact as the followers were about 500,000 or more .Secondly the claim of the founder of the worldwide Ahmadiyya community does not make any distinction between mahdi and Messiah .Being mahdi shows the status of being one from within the Ummah of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him ) and the status of Messiah reflects the prophethood for all the followers of other religions.
