The second book in the series of El Aten, Antichrist follows the rise of the Deceiver from self- proclaimed leader to his gradual world-wide acceptance. His manipulations bring Israel ever closer to proclaiming him as their Messiah. He continues to build up his military base in Egypt while preaching his world-peace message. A replica of the Ark of the Covenant is planted in a cave near the Dead Sea, and "found" by Judas, the false prophet, with great ceremony and world-wide media coverage. Plans are formulated for the Palestinians to blow up their own mosque, "The Dome of the Rock," and blame it on Israel. The Palestinians are then double-crossed by El Aten and exposed as the perpetrators. The scene is now set for the building of the third Temple!
