Overview The apostle John pushed aside the incense. "I will not make your sacrifice," he announced to the Roman tribune. "There is one God, and his name is not Domitian." Standing next to john at the stone altar of the emporere's temple were other believeres, including Asia's most wealthy citizen, Abraham of Ephesus, and his family. Will Abraham follow John's example? If he refuses to make the sacrifice, the shipping magnate's vast fortune will be confiscated by Rome, and he will either be executed or exiled to Patmos-Devil's Island. This exciting historical novel follows Abraham and his family as they make their choice to worship Ceasar or follow Christ, and it brings to life the days when Christians faced the lions in Rome's Coliseum-and when the exiled apostle recieved the great visions of Revelation.

Awesome read! Feb 11, 2004
This was outstanding! I'm just sorry I waited so long to read it. And it has everything! Action, suspense, romance, all wrapped up with the peace that passes all understanding, Jesus Christ. I rank this book right up there on the level as W.G. Griffiths, "Malchus" because it just had that kind of impact. I finished it, I can't wait to read "Avenger of Blood", but it gives you hope in times of trouble. This is supposed to be a 7 book series and I just can't wait for them to start coming hot off the press! This book also asks the question concerning how committed to Christ we really are. Are we going to fear the worst, or are we going to trust in Him and press on? It takes a look at whether the reader might be caught up in worldly things? It takes a sharp look at betrayal. Are you going to confess your relationship to Him before men, or will we be ashamed? When you finish this book, it should be with a renewed strength with the power to say, "I don't care WHAT the circumstances or the consequences, I belong to Jesus Christ, and nobody can take that away from me!!"
Pastor John Hagee, thank you! God has only just begun! Now for a slight Hagee impersonation, "I loved this book, and I WANT MORE!!!" (just imagine a booming voice)
A Brilliant Work of Fiction Feb 25, 2003
Devil's Island is the first installment of the Apocalypse Diaries, and I have to admit I was a bit skeptical when I read the first page of this book. I had never read anything that far back in time, and I wasn't sure if I really wanted to. But something told me to continue, especially since I am a fan of Pastor John Hagee's preaching. Boy was I in for a shock, this novel put all my skeptism to rest. This actually was my favorite Christian novel since I discovered Christian Fiction. I have written several reviews on other Christian novels, but this is by far best of the best. Even though this book has been compared to other series, such as Left Behind and others to numerous to mention. In reality it stands in a class by itself.
Pastor Hagee's brilliant tale of Christian Fiction just blew me away. Devil's Island shows that Pastor John Hagee is indeed a prolific writer. I was impressed by his potrayal of the Apostle John in Devil's Island. When I got to the end of this novel, the only thing I knew was that I wanted more.
This poignant Christian tale is an award winner with a seal of approval that everyone should read. I have actually recommended this book to many of my friends. I can't wait to read the second installment "The Avenger of Blood". If itis any indication of the first, then boy I'm surely going to have a great time.
Devil's Island Jun 23, 2002
I've enjoyed listening to and reading John Hagee over the years, but I'm waiting on him to write a hands on real-to-life story like this novel that was highly recommended to me called "Waiting to Exit Hell." THAT IS A BEST SELLER AND GOOD BOOK!
Best Seller List Nov 25, 2001
Great reading! This is a story you can't put down until you have turned to the last page. I can't wait until the follow up comes out in 2002.
A Good book to read. Makes you think... Sep 27, 2001
The Devil's Island is a good book to understand the early Christains, and the sacrifices the early Christians made for Christ. I hope that John Hagee will not drag it out as long as the left behind books. I read this book in three nights and injoyed it. It made me think would I have the faith to stand up against Caesar. It all so made me think about what has happen in New York and D.C.. It is very well written and a good book to read.
