Overview

Two nuclear wars. Three asteroids. Demonic madness that kills one third of the world’s population. Into this, a savior will rise, cloned from Christ. It’s not fiction. It’s prophecy.

The Messiah of the New Age. His coming is prophesied by more than a dozen major religions. Cloned from live cells of Jesus Christ found on the Shroud of Turin, Christopher Goodman was born into the most turbulent time in human history. Already two nuclear holocausts have shaken the planet – the first destroying much of the Russian Republic, and the second killing nearly a billion people in China, India, and Pakistan. Unknown to the world’s inhabitants, an even greater threat is waiting just beyond Earth’s horizon – a threat that may annihilate the entire human race. Three asteroids are hurtling toward the planet, thrown from their orbits by the supernatural powers of two religious madmen, one who claims to be the 2000-year-old Apostle John. Fated to remain alive from biblical times until Christ’s return, the Apostle John has awaited fulfillment of the visions he described in the book of Revelation. But John and his cohort, apostate Hasidic rabbi Saul Cohen, are not satisfied to merely witness the Apocalypse – they intend to cause it.

Though Christopher can stop the destruction, he must allow it to happen, for he says that scattered throughout the Bible and other religious texts are clues pointing to an incredible hidden truth – a secret of devastating universal importance that reveals the astonishing future of man and the true nature of God. It is far more than life and death that hang in the balance. It is the fulfillment of galactic destiny, humankind’s final evolutionary step: the birth of a New Age!

    A LOT TO THINK ABOUT

    Ok people, I just finished reading this 3-book series, and I must say, I was quite empressed with it. Having read the Left Behind series several years ago, I was curious to see how this one would compare. Anyway, it's an interesting take on the whole Rapture/Armedgeddon/Endtimes/Revelations story. I must say that at one point, I became a little concerned at the direction it was taking in regard to the Anti-Christ, but it eventually came back around. Being a Christian, I was hoping the bad guys weren't going to triumph, and that it wasn't written by some atheist. There are a bunch of good endnotes supporting the storyline (referencing scriptures) which helped me to better understand Revelations. Of course, this is a book of fiction and one man's interpretation. Having said that, it's extremely well written and well researched making the whole premise quite enjoyable and believable...well worth the money!
