As the Introduction in this book clearly states, this book could be fiction or non-fiction. If it comes close to being non-fiction, then the story contained herein, following the prophetic Scriptures cited, depicts a future history unfolding very close to what actually will happen. That aside, whether fiction or non-fiction, the person reading this book now will be challenged to evaluate our current history to determine if it could lead to a future history as described in this book. The goal of the author in writing this novel is clear It is for the reader to ask the same question posed by the Apostle Peter "What kind of person should I be?" (2 Peter 3:11). The answer found in the same passage..."Holy and godly as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming."GALE NEWMAN was born and raised in Turlock, California. He attended U.C. Berkeley on an athletic scholarship. After graduation, he attended Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. From there he received a Masters of Divinity degree and a few years later, a Doctor of Ministry degree.He has served churches in Oregon, Indiana and California. While serving those churches he instituted Home Bible Studies, believing them to be essential for Christian growth. His first book, The Truth About The Lie, was formatted to be used by Christians for personal Bible study or for groups within churches to be used in home Bible-study settings. This book could be used for the same purposes since each chapter ends with Bible verses to be read. The references are to be used to understand the background of the chapter just read.
