I loved the whole series of books written by these two authors. They are "edge of your seat" gripping and Biblically sound. I have recommended these books to others as well and I would'nt do that unless I have thoroughly enjoyed them myself. You won't be disappointed!
Tim LaHaye & Craig Parshall in their new book, "Brink of Chaos" Book Three in The End series published by Zondervan brings us back into the life of Joshua Jordan.
From the back cover: In the third book of The End series, Joshua Jordan remains in Israel during his self-imposed â€˜exile' out of the reach of U.S. authorities who have trumped-up false criminal treason charges against him. His wife, Abigail, continues to lead the Roundtable to prove the innocence of her husband. Following the nuclear attack by Russia, Israel is cleaning up the bodies of dead enemy soldiers for 7 months and setting out on its 7 year planâ€”both per the prophecies in Ezekiel. As corruption in high government offices threaten to block the election of a worthy presidential candidate by all means necessaryâ€”including the unthinkableâ€”Israel's leadership is tempted to sign a â€˜peace' proposal initiated by the UN under the authority of Coliquin. After he discusses this plan with Pastor Peter Campbell, Joshua is convinced Coliquin may well be the prophesied Anti-Christ and that his peace plan is a trap to destroy Israel. Are the recurring dreams Joshua has had about the coming rapture from God. And is the end sooner than anyone expects?
Political upheaval, biological weapons and a global threat are just some of the ingredients that are the recipe for "Brink of Chaos". You know what that means, right? Yes, Joshua Jordan is back in "Brink of Chaos" and this book is even more of a thriller than the first two books combined. Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall have given us a roller coaster ride of suspense, danger, adventure and politics that will keep you flipping pages as fast as you can read them. Unlike a previous series by Dr. LaHaye this series is set not to far from where we are today. Dr. LaHaye is using Bible prophecy to show how close we are to what the Bible tells us will happen.
Craig Parshall, known for his legal fiction, has written a page turning, 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. Their zeal is that many will have their eyes open to the state of our world and see that much of where we are currently and where we are poised to go the Bible has already warned us of and that we would understand our need for a savior. They do a truly remarkable job in this book while exciting us with this story that everyone will enjoy.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Zondervan Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I can really get into a book when you can look at the world around you and see complete parallels with what is happening between them both. Once again authors, Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall, reunite the readers with Joshua Jordan, former pilot and now taking up asylum that had been provided to him by Israel while his wife and attorney, Abigail can prove his innocence and guarantee him a fair trial. Joshua is fighting trumped-up charges brought by the Department of Justice but give the energy put into the case by the administration of President Tulrude, and the political corruption that Abigail believed was at the bottom of it all, she knew that would be a Herculean task.
The charges accused Joshua of treason, painting him as a domestic terrorist who had used his own defense-contracting firm and the Roundtable group to infiltrate the Department of Defense and manipulate America's national-security apparatus so it would conform to his own political agenda. Abigail considered the allegations an absurd insult. Her husband was a decorate hero-yet the Tulrude administration and its attorney general had concocted a wild theory that through Josh's leadership of the Roundtable, he was attempting to create his own "shadow government," using his influence and connections to subvert American domestic and foreign policy. Abigail believed that the criminal case against Joshua was the only way to shut him up, to stop his work in exposing the dangerous direction that President Tulrude had taken the country.
All this is set against the backdrop on the prevailing winds of the apocalyptic end times as Israel is still cleaning up the remains from the recent nuclear attack by Russia, thus fulfilling the prophecy from Ezekiel in the Bible. The believers in Jesus Christ, fear that the rapture is imminent as citizens are instructed that they have a few remaining days to receive their BIDtag, or Biological Identification invisible tattoo that allows you to be tracked anywhere by the government and security. It is as most believe that is has become the mark of the Antichrist. Meanwhile a One World New Order is being formed by UN under the authority of Coliquin, and his highest priority is the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem and signing a peace treaty with Israel. Sounds just like what is happening slowly outside our own front doors!
I received Brink of Chaos by Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review and hope there is more coming in this exciting heart-beating series. This marks the third book in The End series and the ending will leave you breathless and wondering just where you stand in your own faith if in fact this novel were to come to a chilling reality. As believers in Jesus Christ, this book makes a stand for what Christians believe will be the coming end times based on prophecies contained within the Bible. This is a perfect novel for those of you that enjoyed the Left Behind Series and why I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars.
