Outline ReviewIn Birth of an Age, book two of the Christ Clone Trilogy, the promised catastrophes in the biblical book of Revelation are poured out. Asteroids are on a crash course toward earth, locust-like insects inflict terrible pain on mankind, and a generalized madness infects the world's population, spawning horrific violence. In the midst of these turbulent events, Christopher announces he is the [Messiah], and promises that a new era is about to be ushered in. --Cindy Crosby
Product Description The year is 2019 and a second nuclear holocaust has killed a half billion people in China, India, and Pakistan-yet the worst is far from over. Unknown to the rest of the world, an even greater threat is waiting beyond the horizon- one that may destroy the entire human race. Thrown from their orbits and hurtling straight toward Earth are three asteroids that have been set in motion by the spiritual powers of two religious madmen-one of whom claims to be the Apostle John. Now, despite an overwhelming impulse to subvert this impending tragedy, Christopher Goodman must allow it to happen. For there is a new destiny at hand for mankind-and the birth of a New Age.

Reviews - What do customers think about Birth of an Age (The Christ Clone Trilogy, Book Two)?
Great Alone, Not so great trilogy Sep 1, 2007
After reading the first two books I was very happy with my purchase. The story was great, the imagery was good, and it was deffinately controversial. The author doesn't hold back with the devistations that plague the earth wich makes it completely believable. I'd say worth reading except for the fact that I don't want to promote the third.
BeauSeigneur's Books Are a New Twist Jul 28, 2006
I have read a lot of end-time books over the years, and I find Christ Clone Trilogy to be the best I have read. There are twists and new ways of seeing things all through his books. I have just finished the 3rd book of the trilogy after reading the other two and have found them more interesting and scarier than the Left Behind Series which I thought was a bit predictable and became somewhat boring. Not so these books! These books will make you think in a different way.
Continued logical but at points too detailed Jun 15, 2006
The characters in the second book of the Christ Clone trilogy continued to develop well and in interesting ways. There is also a slight narrowing down of their numbers. The political possibilities are also flow logically. But the science starts to be too detailed and not cited especially with the first asteroid. We are still left wondering who is good and who is evil though those familar with the New Testament and Old Testament will figure it out faster.
This definitely explains a fair amount of book 1... May 24, 2006
Since I was stressed out about some work stuff last night (and didn't end up getting any sleep), I plowed through the second book in the Christ Clone trilogy... Birth Of An Age by James Beauseigneur. I can definitely say it's better than the first one, and the story is starting to come together...
This volume picks up with the last chapter of the first book. Christopher Goodman, the person cloned from the cells found on the Shroud of Turin, has just finished his 40 days of solitude in the wilderness, and he's now ready to go back to the UN and start making changes. But on their way back to New York, a nuclear war erupts between India and Pakistan (and involves part of China), and many millions die. But that's just the start of the deaths. John the Apostle and Rabbi Cohen are prophesying major catastrophes (the ones normally associated with the Book of Revelations), and they start coming true. We have meteors devastating the planet, locusts, wide-spread madness, and poisoned water. Goodman sees these two individuals as necessary evil for mankind to advance to a new age of enlightenment, and he increasingly finds himself pitted against them. Right as he's poised to take over leadership of the UN, an assassin guns him down. But through miraculous events, he's resurrected and heads to Jerusalem to have a final confrontations with the prophets. Goodman declares himself the "anti-Christ" at that point, and has an interesting twist on the whole God/Satan conflict...
This book was somewhat shorter than the first one, and a lot of time is spent describing the natural disasters in fine detail. In fact, you go for long stretches with no mention whatsoever of Decker and Goodman. I was starting to wonder quite a bit about the theology of this series until the end of this book. Now things are more clear, and I'm following the general storyline. While still not the best End Times book/series I've ever read, it's starting to redeem itself...
Things are Picking Up...Literally Mar 30, 2006
This is a very interesting book, and so different from Book One of the Trilogy, In His Image. Book One plodded along, especially over-explaining how the new United Nations works. This Book actually begins at the end of Book One, and it's a roller coaster ride of Revelation-oriented disasters that allegedly are going to afflict the earth. Meteors, locusts, arsenic poisonings. You name it, and it's in here -- and all in 207 pages!! It's fascinating with what accurate detail that the author can explain the fulfilling of alleged Biblical prophecies, and at the same time develop characters in such a short amount of bookspace. The book does begin to develop that "detachedness to suffering" that humanity is going trough in the book. If billions are dying, then why do none of the main characters seem to be even remotely affected at all? Not that I want them to "feel" as much as the central character of Brain Caldwell's "We All Fall Down" feels, however. It never crosses that line. On to Book 3, Acts of God.
