The cast of characters are well developed. I understand that characters must be presented as true to life in order to be believable, so it's no wonder that I'm offended by some of the things that the main antagonist says. If he didn't offend me then the author would have done a poor job of portraying him.
I've always like to delve into history, although I know very little; the same goes for mythology. I've always thought that mythology was based on truth although many people think it's just made up stories from various cultures. Why did I think that? I'm not really sure, there was just something about the various pantheons that rang as true in so many things.
Enough said. It's a very good book and I think you'll enjoy reading it, even if you choose to not believe it happened like that.
This premise regarding "The Revelation" is not popular now, but through the story and footnotes, Godawa shows that it is at least plausible. Even if your view of Revelation is the popular view used in the "Left Behind" series, I would recommend you read this series. First you will enjoy it, and it should challenge you to more closely examine what you believe and consider this viewpoint, which has been believed by some in the church for nearly 2000 years.
I received an advanced copy of this work in exchange for my honest review.
So it is possible to write fiction based on the book of Revelation that has depth and grabs your attention.
Brian's work here shows much, much, much more effort at creating a realistic background and in creating the potential for readers to transition into a serious study of the theological issues raised than the earlier works from Jenkins and Lahaye. This is a fascinating look at how Jesus's command to flee Jerusalem could have played out in the life of the first century church. Brian's characters struggle against their own weaknesses and a disintegrating social and political situation as they learn to trust their lives, and their futures, to their Lord.
If your already familiar with the partial-preterist view of Revelation you'll enjoy seeing how the fulfillment of the prophecy begins to come together. If you're not this will be a wonderful introduction to that view. This is one of the most theologically and historically integrated novels I think I've ever read. The various officials of the Roman Empire, the rank-and-file first century Christians, the Jewish community in the region, and even the gods of the nations(Satan(called Apollyon in this story)) each try to further their causes under the sovereign hand of God. Even though you know God's purposes will be accomplished in the end the journey to that end is a dangerous one.
My only complaint is the love triangle in the story. I've just seen love stories inserted into too many other plots.
And yes, this book drastically changed my views of the end times and, for the first time in my life, Matthew 24 and big portions of the book of Revelation began to make sense (for what I am really grateful to the author). Looking forward to the next book in the series!
