More About the Author
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.

The story has a lot of what's going on in today's world, and incorporates it very into the story line. Any Christian who is paying attention to headlines of the times, as well as major characters in these headlines, knows and understands what is happening.
The book opens with a missile attack on New York City by an angry North Korean Admiral. Jordan's laser missile defense systems thwarts the attack and saves the city.
Due to a series of events Joshua Jordan, creator of the missile defense system code-named Return To Sender, is forced to use it without Washington approval. Now foreign nations want to steal it and the U. S. Government is pressuring Jordan to turn over his designs so that, secretly, they could sell it. Criag Parshall, known for his legal fiction, has written, heart-thumping thriller with careful attention to the state of the world right now and how the Bible says we will turn out. Many of the things that are mentioned in the book are in place right now and in use, even though most of us are not aware of them. Dr. LaHaye and Craig Parshall have one agenda in mind and that is the salvation of many through this work of fiction. Joshua Jordan was a hero taking unbelievable chances with his life for the country he loved. When he retired from field work he became a weapon designer trying to still protect the United States from threats outside and inside the nation.
Congress, however, is not happy that Jordan will not hand over the details of his defense system. They feel that the United States government should own that kind of technology and not some private company.Read more ›
Now Tim LaHaye is back, and with him is the only reason I've even thought about giving these new "End" books a 2nd though, Craig Parshall. I've been reading Craig Parshall since the beginning of his "Chambers of Justice," with "The Resurrection File" leading the way, and I've been impressed with him ever since. So this time around, I wanted to see if Parshall would make a difference with Tim LaHaye. I think they both did, with the idea being LaHaye's, but the writing is obviously Parshall. That much is evident to me, because LaHaye has never claimed to be a great writer. But he does have great ideas, and I think it's about time he got somebody good like Craig Parshall to work with him. Nothing against Jerry Jenkins when I say that, because Jenkins has some awesome stand-alone work.
This begins with an attack as North Korea has the tables turned against them, and blown up in their face. That happens because of Joshua Jordan, and he has a little trick up his sleeve called RETURN-TO-SENDER!Read more ›
I loved the Sifi aspects of the book. I found it exciting and believable. The book starts out with the launch of two North Korean Nuclear missiles at NY City. Joshua Jordan a civilian contractor developed a system that reconfigures the navigation flight path to a mirror opposite and sends the missiles back to their origin. From there it's a series of events by local and foreign powers to use the "RTS" technology for their own advantage.
I can't wait for the next book in the series!
Two of the missiles head towards New York City; Jordan has minutes to activate the Return to Sender laser guidance system that sends a missile back to its launch site. The counter operation proves successful, but the media questions the consequences while the White House and Senate demand he turn over the Return to Sender system to Senator Stratworth and his committee. When he refuses to give it to anyone outside of the Pentagon as he fears anyone else will sell it for oil and credit. The President and Congress use the media to go after Joshua. Joshua soon learns he might be a target as Iran, North Korea and Russia as well as allies want the system and will go to any length to get it.
Taking place in the near future in which America is short on cash as a new growing dust bowl threatens Midwest agriculture, corruption permeates the government, Joshua and two secret cabals try to bring back the country to what is once was. Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall provides readers with an exciting thriller as the United Sates is on the Edge of Apocalypse while the hero must deal with the possibility of biblical Armageddon and saving his nation.
