Book Description

The third novel of seven in The End Times Saga - Christian Fiction.

A preacher and his family, the Tyler's, have a church that is dying in Arizona. Even though the church is dying, they take care of the remaining senior saints, including the ones in nursing homes and in hospice. The other family in the church, the White's, head to Wyoming to live in a community that was originally started by Doomsday Preppers back in the early 2000′s so they can attempt to escape the increasing persecution of Christians.

Meanwhile, President Collins orders the activation of Camps across the country that will house believers who he thinks are a threat to his rule. His patron, Michael Collins, manipulates events in the Middle East. The Tyler's end up with others in a camp in Arizona, while the White's and the community they live in gets attacked by government troops. Evans continues to manipulate events as the Rapture takes the Christians, and he gains ultimate power.

5.0 out of 5 stars Times of Trial - I thought was quite an exciting book! February 26, 2014
By Angela
Format:Kindle Edition
I give this book and author five stars for a wonderful exciting and moving mystery of the End Times. You will find as I did once you get really into this story that It will be very,very difficult to set it down even when you may have to for obvious reasons, right? I really liked the way the author made the characters seem to come alive as if you had known them yourself. Besides all the reasons that I have already stated above. I recommend this book for all the reasons that I have already mentioned here and for anyone who may like to see a foretaste of what could happen in the unforeseen
future for those of us who may still be around here on planet earth and in America. I received this book free and in exchange I am doing reviews for this author now! Great book! Great job,Cliff! By Angela

5.0 out of 5 stars A well researched and written book December 7, 2013
This book, Times of Trial, is a thrilling account of events surround in the end times. It is a fast paced story of what could happen to all the world's Christians when one man wants to control the world, when he has the examples of past failures. The most fascinating part for me was the description of the volcano in Yellowstone. My own imaginings were of the Grand Teton blowing a casket in the near future. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys thrilling tales and, especially any Baptists and other Christians with the same view of the last book of the Bible, for an interesting and informative description of the Revelation of John to the churches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Times of Trial March 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an exciting novel about the author's perception of the end times. We all know they are coming and this is a great look at how they could be. I thoroughly enjoyed this story with some fear and trepidation as to what may be coming down in the future. We had better be ready physically and spiritually to withstand the end times because they will be brutal and we will need a close personal relationship with God to get through it all.
