    "The Revelation of Jesus Christ is the most perplexing book

    "The Revelation of Jesus Christ is the most perplexing book of the New Testament. Except for some passages in the Gospels themselves, it is the only prophetic book in the Bible. It was written by the Apostle John in about A.D. 95, while in exile on the isle of Patmos, a very small (only about 13 sq. mi.) island in the Aegean Sea. It takes the form of a letter to the seven churches of Asia, addressing their problems, but it quickly segues into accounts of visions, prophecies and visitations by angels and Jesus. Despite being the most intensively studied book of the Bible, there is no true understanding of its message, except, perhaps, the certainty of Jesus' return and several events which precede that advent. However, just what those events are, what they mean, who will be involved, and when they will happen cannot be divined from the text of Revelation. Despite all the claims and and contentious agreements, the message remains enigmatic and undecipherable...but that does not stop brave and the inspired fiction writers from weaving all the various elements of the prophecy into exciting novels, which is what Pam Funke has done in Operation Dark Angel.

    As with most portentous events it begins with something small. This story begins with a girl who hears a voice. Although Mariel comes from a good family and has a strong Catholic education, she listens to what the voice tells her, that she is going to have a baby that was fathered by no man. At this point, and indeed at many points in this novel, the reader should snort in derision, for it's easy to say she should have known better, that she should have recognized the falsehoods, should have known just who was speaking. We could say the same thing about other characters in the book. The reader can sit safe in s smug world, knowing the framework behind the scenery, and archly claim "I would never be so gullible. I would never fall for such obvious whoppers. I would know immediately what is going on and turn my back on the evil." Really? Just as characters in a book never know the story of which they are a part, so we will not know when we find ourselves enmeshed in an end-time pyschodrama. Besides, it's not for nothing that the Devil is called the Father of Lies, and since we have enough trouble coping with evil on a daily basis, how can we truly think we would respond any more wisely than the characters in Funke's novel?

    The characters in Operation Dark Angel are portrayed with a deft knowledge of both the human condition and spiritual dilemmas. Funke has taken the elements of Revelation and interpreted them in such a way as to make them seem both plausible and immediate. The realism of the events unfolding on a worldwide basis is quite chilling. The plot is well thought out; despite the numerous plot-threads that involve dozens of characters, the author handles them all well, visiting one after another to advance the overall plot in an engaging and thrilling way. The scope of the story (and this is just the first book of a series) is in the tradition of the grand epic. If director Cecil B. DeMille were alive today and still in the business of bringing the Bible to the silver screen (Why let 5,000 years of publicity go to waste?), this is the sort of book he would choose -- epic story, villains and heroes bigger than life, and an eternal message.

    Christians might want to read this book because of its attempt to clothe Revelation in garments that are more familiar to us (and in our imaginations we might even see some familiar faces), but one need not be a Christian to read and enjoy the book. It can also be read as a paranormal adventure, or even as a rousing yarn in the pulp-fiction traditions of Robert Ludlum or Clive Cussler, but with a strong moral or spiritual component. No matter how you approach this book, however, you will likely get more from it than you expected."

    This was an interesting story though very long.  I enjoyed the idea of what could be done to create world chaos with technology- very real and very scary.  Though the book seemed long and I had a little trouble keeping all the people straight, it held my interest to see how this was all going to play out.  I was disappointed that it didn't really wrap it up at the end, but instead led you into the next book in the series.  I was given a copy of this book for my honest review.
