Reckoningby Thomas F. Monteleone
The previous Pope died in his arms, blessing him with his last breath. He can perform miracles. His mother was a virgin. His DNA came from the Shroud of Turin. Peter Carenza is the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy and a secret, Vatican-sponsored experiment. But is he the Second Coming, or something far, far worse? Believers the world over hail Carenza as the new
The previous Pope died in his arms, blessing him with his last breath. He can perform miracles. His mother was a virgin. His DNA came from the Shroud of Turin. Peter Carenza is the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy and a secret, Vatican-sponsored experiment. But is he the Second Coming, or something far, far worse? Believers the world over hail Carenza as the new Pope and rejoice as he creates a new church for the new millennium. A few people know the truth-that mixing science with the works of God has created not a Saviour but the Anti-Christ.
Now the latestand lastPope scours the world for the human guardians of the Biblical seven seals, which must be destroyed before the final cataclysm can begin. Opposing him are a lone Archbishop, the female American journalist who chronicled Carenza's rise to power, and Peter's mother, a nun who truly hears the Word of the Lord.

This pair of books provides many answers. Who is right, who will be saved, what responsibility do we each have for our- selves as well as for others? Maybe the answer is as simple as YES.
The story was pretty good, I love Christian genre and this did not dissapoint. The only thing needing improvement would be the epilogue, but other than that it was worth reading.
Monteleone finishes up where he left off in BLOOD OF THE LAMB. Peter is now Pope and not what the Vatican had in mind as a Messiah! A great bok with some vivid action sequences and an appropriate ending. Now buy the damn thing!
