Review

A hero pilot turned weapons designer, Joshua Jordan was banished to Israel after he was accused of treason. His attorney wife, Abigail, is working fervently to ensure he gets a fair trial. Meanwhile, Israel is trying to clean up after a nuclear attack by Russia. Most citizens believe the Rapture to be upon them. VERDICT: Full of intrigue, the latest entry in the action-packed thriller series (after 'Edge of Apocalypse' and 'Thunder of Heaven') by LaHaye, co-author of the best-selling “Left Behind” prophecy series, and Parshall (“Chamber of Justice” series) will appeal to fans of spiritual thrillers by T. Davis Bunn. (Library Journal)

In fine Ironman-meets-the-Rapture style, LaHaye (Left Behind series) and Parshall add a third volume to The End series of political apocalyptic thrillers. Weapons specialist Joshua Jordan is narrowing down who he thinks may be the anti-Christ when the Rapture, the belief that faithful followers of Christ are snatched away to heaven before the end of the world, arrives, and he must prepare a protégé, Ethan March, his assistant and a former pilot, for the time of tribulation to come. Joshua’s wife, Abigail, defends him against false charges that led to his exile from the U.S. Joshua and other followers of Christ wage battle with divine intervention against the powers of darkness and convince people to join Christ’s side. Characters teach predictive prophecy as they hurtle through the fast-paced worldwide quest to save as many people as possible from doom. Quick pacing and a heart-pounding resolution lead to a dynamic scene of the afterlife and a cliffhanger for the next book. Fans of Left Behind ought to enjoy this new blending of a familiar (to some) premillennial doctrine with new characters and complex story line. (Publishers Weekly)

More About the Author

Dr. Tim LaHaye (www.timlahaye.com), who conceived the idea of fictionalizing an account of the Rapture and the Tribulation, is a noted author, minister, and nationally recognized speaker on Bible prophecy. He is the founder of both Tim LaHaye Ministries and The PreTrib Research Center. He also recently cofounded the Tim LaHaye School of Prophecy at Liberty University. Presently Dr. LaHaye speaks at many Bible prophecy conferences in the U.S. and Canada, where his current prophecy books are very popular.

Dr. LaHaye holds a doctor of ministry degree from Western Theological Seminary and a doctor of literature degree from Liberty University. For 25 years he pastored one of the nation's outstanding churches in San Diego, which grew to three locations. It was during that time that he founded two accredited Christian high schools, a Christian school system of ten schools, and San Diego Christian College (formerly known as Christian Heritage College).

Dr. LaHaye has written over 50 non-fiction books and co-authored 25 fiction books, many of which have been translated into 34 languages. He has written books on a wide variety of subjects, such as family life, temperaments, and Bible prophecy. His most popular fiction works, the Left Behind series, written with Jerry B. Jenkins, continue to appear on the best-seller lists of the Christian Booksellers Association, "Publishers Weekly," the "Wall Street Journal," "USA Today," and the "New York Times."

Another popular series by LaHaye and Jenkins is The Jesus Chronicles. This four-book fiction series gives readers a rich first century experience as John, Mark, Luke, and Matthew recount thrilling accounts of the life of Jesus. Dr. LaHaye is co-author of another fiction series, Babylon Rising. Each of the four titles in this series have debuted in the top 10 on the New York Times best seller list. These are suspense thrillers with thought-provoking messages.

Tim LaHaye & Craig Parshall in their new book, "Brink of Chaos" Book Three in The End series published by Zondervan brings us back into the life of Joshua Jordan.

From the back cover: In the third book of The End series, Joshua Jordan remains in Israel during his self-imposed `exile' out of the reach of U.S. authorities who have trumped-up false criminal treason charges against him. His wife, Abigail, continues to lead the Roundtable to prove the innocence of her husband. Following the nuclear attack by Russia, Israel is cleaning up the bodies of dead enemy soldiers for 7 months and setting out on its 7 year plan--both per the prophecies in Ezekiel. As corruption in high government offices threaten to block the election of a worthy presidential candidate by all means necessary--including the unthinkable--Israel's leadership is tempted to sign a `peace' proposal initiated by the UN under the authority of Coliquin. After he discusses this plan with Pastor Peter Campbell, Joshua is convinced Coliquin may well be the prophesied Anti-Christ and that his peace plan is a trap to destroy Israel. Are the recurring dreams Joshua has had about the coming rapture from God. And is the end sooner than anyone expects?

Political upheaval, biological weapons and a global threat are just some of the ingredients that are the recipe for "Brink of Chaos". You know what that means, right? Yes, Joshua Jordan is back in "Brink of Chaos" and this book is even more of a thriller than the first two books combined. Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall have given us a roller coaster ride of suspense, danger, adventure and politics that will keep you flipping pages as fast as you can read them. Unlike a previous series by Dr. LaHaye this series is set not to far from where we are today. Dr.

Format: Paperback
Brink of Chaos is a well-written novel filled with action as well as suspense. There are characters who are protagonists, but not all are believers in Jesus Christ as the Messiah. Antagonists are present as well, but are not necessarily opposed to the Messiah coming again. In the story, as in real life, some of the characters represent seekers, others represent doubters, and some want proof before they believe. It was somewhat eerie reading this as a novel because the political, economic, and spiritual climate portrayed is somewhat a mirror of how life is today.
This is the third and most likely the last installment in this series entitled "The End". There are previous installments that a reader might want to read before reading Brink of Chaos. The theme of Christ's second return is most prominent as the different plots are all aligning to converge on that occurrence. Author Tim LaHaye places weight upon another theme running through the story, which is the event known as the rapture. I personally don't hold to this belief of the believers escaping the Tribulation, but the novels are enjoyable nonetheless.
The Jordan family is prominent in this book as they are in the first two novels. Joshua is a former Air Force pilot who happens to also have exceptional engineering knowledge which he uses to protect America from her enemies. The group which Joshua and his wife Abigail have started is called the Roundtable and is instrumental in a host of ways in the fight against evil.
Abigail was a lawyer who had spent more time until recently working with the Roundtable, but now finds herself thrust center stage in the fight. What areas does she fight in? Be careful not to assume before reading the book!

I am a fan of Tim LaHaye and I enjoyed this book. If I wasn't' already a Christian, I would turn my life over to Christ after reading his books.

After reading other authors books about the evil's of terrorism and liberalism, I tried this series and cannot put it down. It is a wake up call for Americans. Especially how the administration in the book is so much like ours in the last few years. Even though it is fiction, there is a lot of truth to these novels.

The Brink of Chaos is set sometime in the future. In this time, United States citizens are required to have ID chips inserted into their bodies for tracking purposes. This regulation is new enough that some people do not yet have the chip.

Joshua Jordan, a retired Colonel, was a test pilot who flew combat missions in Iraq as well as U-2 spy planes over Iran. He has a degree from MIT and, as a civilian contractor, he developed the Return to Sender missile defense system. When the story opens he is living in exile in Israel having been wrongly accused of treason in the United States. His wife, Jordan, is restricted from leaving the country and has been separated from Joshua for two years because of the legal restraints. They have two grown children. Lt. Debbie Jordan who works in the Pentagon and 21-year old Cal Jordan.

From Israel, Joshua, along with two Israeli agents, frees a U.S. pilot from prison there. When the pilot, Captain Louder, gets back to the United States, he is awarded the Medal of Honor by President Jessica Tulrude who fails to mention (or let Louder say) that Joshua Jordan freed him.

Abigail Jordan, who is also Joshua's lawyer, is fighting to get the treason charges dropped. However, the administration is thwarting her all along the way.

For fans, this book is the final in the series and I think you'll find it as exciting as ever. However, if you haven't read the previous books in the series, you'll still like this one. It stands alone and gives background as needed without being repetitious.

I don't agree with the end time prophecy throughout the book, but it was still an exciting read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
