Overview

The Last Apostle: A Novel by Dennis Brooke

What if John, the last living apostle of Jesus Christ, was still alive and well… and living in Seattle?

In A.D. 100, John is restored to the body of his youth and sent on a mission with a warning: to never reveal his true identity. He winds up on a small Greek isle where he faces an attempted assassination, a run-in with the Roman authorities, and develops a relationship with the daughter of the village leader.

Fast-forward to modern day Seattle, where John leads a foundation dedicated to bringing clean water to third world nations. A new television series brings attention to ancient legends about the true fate of John the apostle and threatens to reveal the truth of his identity. John struggles to keep his secret as he grows close to Nicole, a young woman he recruits to lead his organization.

For two thousand years, John has wandered the earth while hiding his true identity. But now, both friends and foes are on the verge of discovering who he truly is—an event that will trigger the end times.

Can John divert those who would discover his secret, or will curious friends and suspicious enemies spark the apocalypse? The Last Apostle is the first in the series of novels on the life of John over the last two millennia.

~Lesley Ann McDaniel, author of Saving Grace

I didn’t have to read far in Brooke’s debut novel to realize this was going to be a captivating read. Strong characters, who are easy to relate to, and a compelling plot propel this story in a way that simply carries the reader from one page to the next. One for the keeper shelf!

~Lynnette Bonner, author of Shepherd’s Heart Series, Islands of Intrigue series and The Hearts of Hollywood series

Every so often a novel comes along that blurs the lines of fact and fiction to such an extent that it draws the reader into a world where one questions if what they are reading is true. The Last Apostle does just that by setting an elaborate story of the Apostle John’s never ending life as eluded to by Jesus in the Gospel of John. Dennis Brooke leads us on a mesmerizing journey filled with action, mystery, intrigue, and suspense. I just couldn’t put it down. Like the main character, John Amato, you will want this book to keep going and never stop. This is truly one of the great adventure novels of the 21st Century.

~Buzz Leonard, Missionary

Dennis Brooke draws readers in and keeps them entertained with fast-paced action. Whether describing John’s adventures in the first century or the twenty-first century in this work of speculative fiction, the author includes realistic descriptions accented by gentle humor. I found some scenes reminiscent of the Jesus in the 9 to 5 series by master storyteller Dr. Dennis E. Hensley. The Last Apostle is a page-turner for sure.
