"On the contrary Michael, this book goes back in history to explore what the others have 'Left Behind.'" (quote from Matt Lumpkin)
I found this book second-hand and picked it up, probably because I live in Pennsylvania and thought it might be interesting to see if Springer "got it right". I'd have to say that she did. I really enjoyed this novel and think about it often. I don't know why I specifically like it. It's like how people describe certain songs as having a nice beat and being easy to dance to. When something strikes a chord in you, you just know and this book did strike a chord in me.
J Daniel Hays and C Marvin Pate have done an amazing job on their first fictional writing. "Apocalypse" is a perfect blend of biblical theology and creative fiction that kept me riveted to the pages. They stay true to the meaning of the biblical text, while incorporating romance and intrigue to create a great storyline. I would recommend "Apocalypse" to anyone, from the scholar to the evening novel reader. If you liked Left Behind, you'll love this even more.
There are numerous books out there that discuss the end times using Revelation and CNN as thier only sources. Hays and Pate write an exciting novel within the historical context of John's apocalypse. There's action, suspense, tragedy and yes, a lot of romance. I highly recommend this book. It leaves those other prophecy books way behind!
