Very enjoyable book May 15, 2007
This book is as the title suggests, very enjoyable. It gives a different light to UFO's and alien sightings. I would recommend this book. I am planning on buying hte other 2 books in the series.
This CAN'T be the final book! Sep 20, 2006
LA Marzulli, The Revealing (Zondervan, 2004)
I am desperately confused. First, the Nephilim books were billed as a trilogy. Then came The Revealing, the cover of which changes the nomenclature to "The Nephilim Series." And then you get to the end of The Revealing, and it begs a book four. Then you go to L. A. Marzulli's website... and it still says trilogy.
Marzulli, you can't be that mean. Can you?
The Revealing opens not long after the events in Yemen that closed Unholy Deception. Mac and Johanen have to stop the Cadre from arranging the birth of the Antichrist. They managed to stop the major events of book two, but Al-Jazeera (of course) still managed to get some footage, and so everyone's still talking about the reappearance of the Bethlehem Star. Things are still headed for the end times, and Mac and Johanen are still trying to get in the Cadre's way.
Before you get to the end of the book, the most confusing thing about it is that characters from book two are either marginalized or disappear altogether from book three. Uri, who played such an important role in the first two books, only gets a few scenes; Mac's wife gets mentioned a few times, but gets no screen time; Roswell's daughter has disappeared without a trace. (For the first fifty pages or so, I had confused Nora, a new character in this book, with Roswell's daughter, whose name I can't recall.) But still, the action is satisfying, and the story cnotinues, though a good deal of things seem to be happening off-screen; much of the first two-thirds or so of the book feels like setup for something much bigger than this (in other words, a fourth book. You hear me, Mr. Marzulli?) As a result, the book carries over the feel from Unholy Deception of middle-book doldrums-- a curable affliction, certainly, as long as there's a satisfying ending.
What we have here is most assuredly not satisfying at all. Can't say what happens at the end without spoilers, but I can say that there is no resolution whatsoever to be had here. MacKenzie and Johanen, and their new pal Brian Fitzpatrick, have a whole lot to do as this book ends-- and so does the rest of the world. In fact, things are just gearing up for an all-out orgy of apocalyptic, messianic wordsmithing when this book ends. And... it just ends.
I'm rating this one under the assumption that there will be a book four. If there's not, knock two stars off. ***
Why continue to be deceived... Jun 28, 2006
Tim LaHaye, Jerry Jenkins, and others in the Pre-Trib circle, such as Ed Hindson, Tommy Ice, Chuck Missler, Zola Levitt, Thomas McCall, John Hagee, Grant Jeffrey, Marlin Maddox, Perry Stone, Texe Marrs, John Walvoord (deceased), etc., continue to put forth the same deceptions that Hal Lindsey popularized decades ago. The notion of a pre-tribulation rapture is foreign to scripture, it is foreign to the teachings of the early Church, and it is grooming the Church for destruction through ignorance and lack of preparation for what is really coming. These men are novices and not prophecy "experts" or "scholars" by any stretch of the imagination; they are those who tickle the ears of gullible Christians. Why continue to be deceived? Tim Cohen, in his excellent book, "The AntiChrist and a Cup of Tea," provides biblically sound and testable evidence to show that the coming AntiChrist is known NOW. Not only that, the same author (Tim Cohen) has now put out the strongest presentation on the whole issue of the rapture EVER offered to the saints of God in Christ: "The REAL Rapture". If you really want to know the truth about the timing of the coming rapture, then you need to hear Tim Cohen's "The REAL Rapture" (based on a volume in his forthcoming "Messiah, History, and the Tribulation Period" series (see Prophecy House's site for details on these items, which are also available via this site).
Couldn't put it down, but............ Mar 21, 2006
I bought all three books together and it was a "can't put them down" type weekend. Mr. Marzulli did an excellent job of providing me with a captivating story an well as a topic, from a non fiction view, that needs serious thought and prayer, and this makes it priceless. But, it is a fiction trilogy and I was disappointed beyond words in this last book, when most of the characters I had become emotionally involved with, just disappeared without a mention. Phase them out, kill them off, but give me some closure, don't leave me wondering. I enjoyed the new characters, but I did not get as emotionally involved. I did read it as fast as the others, but I think I was trying to hope each new chapter would bring my beloved characters from book 1 and 2 back. I hope he plans to write more and include the old characters. Even with this minor complaint, these are great reads.
The Revealing Feb 23, 2006
This book is very exciting and captivating. A real page turner. I enjoyed it very much. The ending was not very satisfying for me. However the end is yet to be seen.
