Format: Paperback
Rock star Michael Modesto is becoming increasingly tired of his Rolling Stone-ish lifestyle or is there something extrinsic that is driving him toward change? What ever it is he finds himself drawn, not like a moth to a light, but like your average cat on a leash, to a beautiful Christian woman, Mary Schaeffer, her charity cause, and ultimately to The Community Church of Jesus Christ. Along the way, beginning with his first meeting with Mary, Michael senses that he has a path open and powers granted to him by who or what has set him on this new and troubling journey in his life.

Michael isn't the only one aware that the Earth has a changed inhabitant, the Antichrist is aware that there is a new threat and has his minions seeking in order or locate and neutralize this threat from God. This isn't the first prophet that has had to be dealt with, so there is no panic, just confidence.

It become evident that God has a special purpose for Michael, but he passes more or less through Elizabeth Kubler-Ross' psychological stages of grief and despair, i.e. denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance, along his path toward discovering what God's purpose is for him. The Antichrist and company are busy trying to defeat him and they discover, as do Michael, Mary and others, that Michael may be is own worst threat.

*** This is another apocalyptic tale, only it focuses not on some Hollywood melodrama or the Left Behind novel series, it attempts to focus on how a prophet emerges and who or what is the Antichrist.

Michael Modesto is a rock star, a rock star to the full extreme with the alcohol and the girls, living life hard in the fast lane. Than all of a sudden he begins to tire, the pleasure begins to fade and at twenty-five he begins to question if he's getting too old for the music.

Than one night at one of so many parties he meets Mary Schaeffer, a nurse who pushes her way in determined to speak to him. She wants him to do a benefit concert for crack babies. Michael wants no part of it; he has a reputation, a selfish attitude towards such things. But finally agrees to go to the hospital with her to see the babies. While there Mary forces him to hold one of the babies and pain like a bolt of lightning races through his body till he passes out but the baby- the baby was healed! In the parking lot another miracle a fire ball of protection from two thugs who try to rob them.

From then on Michael decides to stay away from Mary and any thought of a benefit concert but he can't he's drawn to her. He tracks her down at her church to tell her he won't help but before he knows it he starts preaching like crazy words he never knew and doesn't even believe begin to flow out of him.

Format: Paperback
Michael Modesto is your average hard-driving rock star who is getting tired of the music life style. At a post-concert party, he meets a young woman named Mary Schaefer, who doesn't look or act like the typical groupie. Against his better judgment, he accompanies her to a local hospital that treats crack babies. He holds one of the babies, and is suddenly convulsed by extreme pain throughout his body. When he recovers, he finds that the baby is cured. Other things happen to Michael that convince him that something very strange is happening. In a vision, he is told, "I am the Word, and you are my messenger."

Michael has no idea what this Message is, or how he is supposed to deliver it, but the thought that he is losing his mind is pretty tempting. He becomes part of a local church in Los Angeles, with which Mary is associated, as a Guest Evangelist. As a native of Texas, Michael has plenty of experience with the way evangelists are supposed to act and sound. His popularity grows like wildfire, with help from some public healings of the sick. The services are nationally televised, and the church moves to larger quarters. Michael attracts the attention of Anthony Stonz, a Washington power broker, who becomes Michael's biggest fan. For his own reasons, Anthony pushes for the construction of a huge, brand new cathedral, just for Michael. This is despite Michael's assertion that as soon as he delivers the Message, his evangelizing will stop. Suddenly, accusations of fraud against Michael, for "healing" people who are not really sick, and accusations of financial mismanagement make it look like the whole thing will collapse.

This is quite a book. It does a fine job looking at faith and religion for those who are not very religious. It has an interesting and plausible story, and is very much worth checking out.
