Fanciful retelling of Revelation
Although the vast history of eschatological research denies the pre-tribulation rapture and the oldest written Christian constitution, the Didache, circa 50 CE specifically denies the pre-tribulation rapture, the author has presumed that point of view is correct. Upon that fanciful presumption, he builds a well-written description of what Revelation might mean for the world and for a small group of evangelical Christians. Nicolae, who they say is the Anti-Christ, does not meet many of the most important requirements of the holder of that office. His name does not transliterate into Hebrew with a value of 666. He does not go around doing miracle upon miracle to persuade the people. He seems like an Obama-like parody, before the time of Obama. I am reading it because I like alternative history and that is a good description of this attempt at ferreting out the meaning of Revelation. However, my bias must be made clear, Eusebius, the Archbishop of Caesaria Maritima and the first great Christian historian in his Historia Ecclesiastica declares that Revelation is a false prophecy and no one believes it.Was this review helpful?

With that said, I think many with open minds will be able to read the book for its entertainment value without buying into its false theology.
