Edge Of Apocalypse, A Thriller That Mirrors Where We are Today

I had the privilege of interviewing Tim LaHaye & Craig Parshall, on our radio show "Kingdom Highlights", for their new book, "Edge Of Apocalypse" published by Zondervan.

This book is a thriller from the first word and gets more exciting word by word. Unlike a previous series by Dr. LaHaye this series is set not to far from where we are today. Dr. LaHaye is using Bible prophecy to show how close we are to what the Bible tells us will happen. Nations will rise against nations and the United States is in deep trouble due to a severe drought and economic collapse. Due to a series of events Joshua Jordan, creator of the missile defense system code-named Return To Sender, is forced to use it without Washington approval. Now foreign nations want to steal it and the U. S. Government is pressuring Jordan to turn over his designs so that, secretly, they could sell it.

Criag Parshall, known for his legal fiction, has written a page turning, heart-thumping thriller with careful attention to the state of the world right now and how the Bible says we will turn out. Many of the "things" that are mentioned in the book are in place right now and in use, even though most of us are not aware of them. Dr. LaHaye and Craig Parshall have one agenda in mind and that is the salvation of many through this work of fiction. Their zeal is that many will have their eyes open to the state of our world and see that much of where we are currently and where we are poised to go the Bible has already warned us of and that we would understand our need for a savior. They do a truly remarkable job in this book while exciting us with this story that everyone will enjoy.

When I asked them where we would be headed in the next book they told me that they could not tell me that butt that this series is envisioned as a trilogy with the next one due out next year. I can hardly wait!!!

Good, not great

I was a little disappointed in this book. I have previously read the Left Behind series and liked that series, but I'll have to say that I felt this book wasn't up to the same level as the Left Behind books.

I have noticed that sometimes in a series, the author will kind of stretch out the action and let the plot move slowly--to fill more pages and make more money, I suppose. I'm not saying that's the motive here, but I felt things were just dragging a bit. According to Lahaye's website, this book is going to be the first book in a series, so I am already kind of on the fence about buying the next one, if it is going to move slowly like this one does.

My problem is that I really, really wanted to like it, I was looking for a great end-times novel. I'm not sure how much of the writing here is Tim Lahaye's and how much is co-author Craig Parshall's.

Overall, its not a terrible book, I probably will buy the next one in hopes that it picks up a little bit. The characters are like-able enough, the plot is OK, so if you are into this type of fiction, give it a shot.

    Tim and Craig Do it Again

    The Edge of the Apocalypse connects Biblical prophecy with today's newspaper. It is a fast moving easy "read". The "Patriots" may be the "Tea Party" of the future exposing the corrupt Government.

    An okay book

    I enjoy all of his books. This one started out at a pretty fast pace, but started dragging a little bit toward the end. I did not care for the ending at all. I can only hope there will a follow up book to answer some of the questions left hanging at the end.

    Edge of Apocalypse will keep you on the edge

    The author has done a great job of presenting a story that reflects the world of politics as it is today. There is plenty of action and does a great job of developing the main character as a true American and the supporting characters as the political and corrupt villans they are in real life. May be too close to the world that actually exists today. A book that is hard to put down and great for use on a Nook. Another great novel by Tim LaHaye.

    Recommended-a good read

    I was prepared to read a somewhat sappy and un-well written book. I'm not sure why I felt that way. It turned out to be a very good book with a lot of intrigue and surprises to the plot. A good writer will have flawed characters which are good people and bad people. I think he did a pretty good job of developing his characters into people with whom we can associate. I would recommend this book and look forward to the next one in the series.

    Great read!

    Loved the way the author tied the story into biblical references and used prayer as the foundation of all things!

    Must Read!

    When I started this book I was not sure what expect this is good book I read the Left Behind series this was just as good a must read, now I'm the second book and is good. What makes this series good is LaHaye and Parshall write about could come true. It is MUST READ!

    Not their best

    I thought this was a slow read, I forced myself to finish. Compared to other books they have authored, it was not one I would recommend.
