It is the year 2028. Plagues, pestilence and other global disasters suddenly erupt. As spewing volcanoes cover the Earth with a dense cloud of ash. God sends the Archangel Gabriel with an incredible message for mankind...

Dr. Raphael Matteo, a leading geologist with NASA, anxiously studies the signs and disasters foretold in Luke 21:11 of the New Testament. Accompany him as he encounters the Archangel Gabriel during a walk outside of Moon Base Challenger. Follow him to the Vatican and the White House as the Earth is faced with the threat of another ice age. Join with the CDC as plagues threaten life on earth as we know it, while signs in the sky make their way over Jerusalem... a city that will shine like a sparkling diamond.

It is August 2028–the last year of humanity’s existence. Or so it seems. Widespread plagues and natural disasters are happening all over the world, and there is nothing the scientific community can do to stop them. Why they are happening, and what can be done, remain a mystery. On the moon, a scientific expedition is witness to an astounding sight–one that has miraculous consequences back home. Although there are dissident voices against the seemingly divine interventions that are occurring, these are gradually silenced, as it becomes obvious to all that what is occurring is from God. Christmas 2028 – does it happen here on Earth? Or is it celebrated in another realm altogether? I was completely immersed in this book, and there were a lot of reasons. Chiefly, it was because of Mr. Ruffolo’s writing style. He writes in the present tense, and tense has two meanings here. This was, by far, one of the hardest books to put down, and one that I wished could have gone on. It was so here-and-now, so breathless, that I was hooked from page one. Another reason that I loved it was because it was so pro-family and so rooted in Catholic Christianity. It’s refreshing to see the faith supported in such a beautiful way. I’ve come away with the need to read more of Mr. Ruffolo’s work. You can add another fan to your list, sir!

I received this book to give an honest review. I was really amazed at the way this story was told. You are in the year of 2028, and the world is pretty much the same way it is now. Only difference is now we have volcanos erupting, earthquakes, death to millions. Is it the end of the world as we know it? The story flowed together perfectly and it is a religious story, the way it was wrote I could literally see this being a movie or at least a couple of episodes of a tv show. It seemed that real to me. When the people on the moon discover a cave this is when all things start happening. The cave starts glowing but what causes it? In the mist of the cave is a chalice and it is pretty much from God which starts the whole volcanos erupting, earthquakes, and people dying from diseases. With the finding of the chalice things with Earth start falling into place, you have alters appearing and people hearing angels sing. Is there peace and hope for mankind? You have to read to find out. Gabriel's Chalice is told from many points of views from different people and that made it a better read. We got to see what each person was doing or saying and you didn't get confused. You knew what was going on. You have Dr. Raphael Matteo, a leading geologist with NASA, you have a doctor who works for the CDC who is trying to figure out how to help those that are dying, and of course those that were on the moon when all this was discovered. If you want to read a great sci-fi, with a spiritual twist on it then you have to give this book a read. NOW MIND YOU THERE IS RELIGIOUS TALK!!!!

The cover of this book was intriguing to me, so I just HAD to read it. And boy am I glad that I did! I loved the storyline and even though it is a work of fiction, some of the events were so well portrayed that I'm actually thinking some of them "might" be plausible as events in the future. I love the combination of "real events" and "spiritual events" that the author weaves throughout this book. This story had me hooked from page one and I can't wait to see what else he comes out with! I recommend this book to everyone who likes sci-fi/space travel and spiritual books :)

Gabriel's Chalice: By Frank A. Ruffolo--Review~~I don't even know where to begin. First, its about a scientist who travels to the moon, to do work for NASA. But it seems strange things are now happening on Earth. And being he is the top expert in Geology and Volcanic activity, seems like his moon trip will be cut short. This isn't necessarily my type of book, BUT, it was REALLY interesting. The story flowed very well. Once I started, I couldn't stop. Definitely worth reading. Especially if you are into that type of thing. On my personal scale, I'm going to give it about 4.5 of 5 stars. Mostly because it was very well written, and its a good story. If it was more my "cup of tea", I really would have given it a 5 star review.

Couldn't put this book down! It grabs you from the first chapter and holds your interest till the final sentence. Brings natural disasters and world events together to present God's revelation, as it was written, for the continuance of mankind.
