The Third Millennium
The Paul Meier books were simply excellent. Action, descriptive, compelling, but most of all Truth. They are well written and imagniative without taking poetic license with Scripture which so many of this genre do. There are two books additional in this series and I highly recommend them all.

I am like the most recent reviewer. I've never stopped to write a review until now. I found "The Third Millennium" was a fascinating novel with a fair amount of eschatology, revealing prevailing false doctrine from humanists and intriguing Biblical opinion from Dr. Meier to sate my appetite for a fictional account of end-time events. So much was my delight in reading this one book, I had to buy the other two books in this series. The "Left Behind" series was, indeed, more capturing of the characters insight from a reader's point of view. But it took a lot of sequel novels to draw the reader in. That was what, IMHO, was so intriguing about this book. It didn't take weeks to read and got it's point across more directly. I have loaned this particular book to several people and have gotten the same reaction.."Wonderful! Can I borrow the other two now?" Now if I could just get this one book back I might be able to read it again!

I was just scrolling through the fiction section and noticed that this book only had one star, so it compelled me to stop and write my "first" review. It has been years since I have read this series (there are a total of three books) and they are the books that really started my interest in Christian fiction. Forgive me for strongly disagreeing with the other review, but I thought this series was AMAZING!! It grabs you right at the beginning and you just ride the waves!! I would highly recommend it and the other two books Paul Meier wrote in this series. I have actually wished that he would have written more books through the years.

While this book is more fast-paced than the Left Behind series, it isn't nearly as engaging. And I really wish that Meier hadn't stuck Robert Wise's (co-author of the next two books in the series) name on one of his characters. "Terbor Esiw" was a little too obvious and just plain stupid, IMHO. The numerology, prophecy explanations, and "Bible code" stuff was annoying and mind-numbing. Meier's appendix was much more interesting than the actual novel! I guess this is what you get when you let a "Christian psychologist" write fiction.
