IT'S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD—WHICH COULD BE A PROBLEM...

Mark Hogan has it all. The job. The family. A position on the board at church. All he's missing is a boat. Not just any boat—a 2008 Bayliner 192.

When Reverend Daniel Glory announces that the Rapture is taking place on October 17 at 5:51am, Hogan realizes his boat—buying days are numbered. So he does what any man in his situation would do—he borrows a load of money from the mob.

Not that there's any risk involved: After all, when the Rapture comes, Hogan will be long gone. The mob will never find him.

But when Jesus fails to come back on schedule, Mark Hogan finds the mob is in no mood to discuss the finer points of end—times theology...

Chris Well's laugh—out—loud Christian thrillers appeal to the millions of readers who gobble up the rollicking crime fiction of Janet Evanovich and Elmore Leonard.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

This quirky apocalyptic gangster novel... wait a minute. Yes, you heard that right. Genre-breaking faith fiction writer Well continues his witty romps through the seamier side of Kansas City here, including characters Forgiving Solomon Longand Deliver Us From Evelyn. Rev. Daniel Glory has declared that the Rapture will take place on October 17 at 5:51 a.m., and evangelicals are happy to capitalize on his prediction. Enter "Kingdom Come," a re-creation of events in the biblical book of Revelation geared to bring the lost to conviction�and sell a few trinkets on the side. Church member Mark Hogan decides if the end of the world is near, why not buy a $22,428 luxury boat and borrow money from the mob to finance it? He won't be around to make the payments. Despite Reverend Glory's bestselling end-time book and talk show�circuit buzz, October 17 comes and goes, and Hogan must face the music. Well's hilarious gangsters are only outdone by the evangelicals he lovingly lampoons, and his clever dialogue will leave readers in stitches. Disappointingly, the book ends with the blatant "to be continued." But fans who laugh out loud at Well's delightful satire of the underworld and the evangelical world will be delighted there is more to come. (May)
