Straw Man in a Novel Jun 14, 2009
Don't bother with this one. It draws you in with a compelling story, but it soon becomes clear that it's only a cleverly constructed straw man. It's intellectually dishonest in two ways: 1. Dispensationalists are presented as sociopaths and those who disagree as selfless heroes. 2. Dispensationalism is demonized while the author's view is glorified. In conclusion, it's an inaccurate picture of both views and those who hold them, totally unfair, and a cheat to the reader who expects a good story, not a rant.
Long "Beach" Read Feb 10, 2009
I read the majority of this novel while on vacation. And it went past that even. Fuse of Armageddon is a large/long novel.
In a nutshell, this the response to the Left Behind series. Where Left Behind talks about the biblical end times as if they were to happen on our lifetime, Fuse of Armageddon speaks on the idea that it has already happened a long time ago. And the people who believe Left Behind theology could actually cause much more destruction than they realize.
Mulvaney Quinn is a hostage negotiator whose wife and daughter were killed when a suicide bomber destroyed the bus they were on. He is called in to speak to the terrorist who kidnapped a group of Christians when they were touring Israel.
What Quinn doesn't know is that there are powerful men pulling the strings behind-the-scenes who want to see their vision for Israel and Palestine come true.
If their plan succeeds, life would forever change on this planet.
While not as pop culture as Left Behind was, this story does give the reader a different look on how religion plays a part in our dealings with the Middle East.
If you can get past the length, Fuse of Armageddon is a nice "beach" read.
Pro-Palestinian agenda that ignores lots of truth Aug 15, 2008
There is nothing more annoying (to me) than to pick up a FICTION book and find the authors shoving their political agenda down your throat. I wasted my money on this book, wish I could get it back. The book started out really well, and then went straight to the toilet when the authors started preaching that the plight of the Palestinians is all the fault of Christians and Israel. Oh, yeah, strapping a bomb on your back and blowing up children in an ice cream shop is caused by the lack of funds sent in humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people. I'm so glad that these intelligent men have solved the problem that society has been grappling with for some time now. Oh, but, what about the rest of the Arab world, which has never allowed these people to claim a home, no matter where they wandered to. Even Jordan didn't want them. So, why don't they bomb the Jordanians? Gosh, kind of weakens your arguments, doesn't it? Oh, and of course, let's not forget their corrupt leadership that has lined it's own pockets with aid sent from the good ole US of A, aid that never reaches it's people. Next time, please warn people in advance that you have a political agenda in your book. It will save people money.
Unless you buy into the garbage that WE are to blame for allowing Israel to reclaim their land, and we have been unfair in aid sent to the Palestinians (could have made Arafat a whole lot richer if we sent more), that all the hatred from the Muslims is because of these two reasons, then don't waste your money. That is the underlying premise that this book is based on.
Major page-turner Dec 7, 2007
I tend to read more nonfiction than fiction, but I must say I've enjoyed all 3 books in this series. All 3 have been definite page-turners.
The plot is a little complicated at times and it can be hard to keep track of what's going on. Especially since the book keeps you guessing at a lot of characters' real intentions (which is one of the things that keeps this book so interesting). Although the book makes no effort to make the ending surprising, the characters keep you guessing and there's suspense until the very end.
One reviewer commented that this book is a bit of a Trojan horse for Hanegraaff's ideas, which is true. A few scenes were obvious devices to work the theology in, but at least the scenes were still plausible and didn't seem too out of place. As Hanegraaff often says on his radio show, ideas have consequences, and the authors try to show that here. Dispensationalism has major consequences for the Middle East and our foreign policy.
My only complaint was that this book was completely unrelated to the last two in the series. I hope the authors write another "Last Disciple" book soon so I can find out what happens to those characters too.
Overall, I'd recommend this book, both for its ideas and the story itself. It's very good on all accounts, and a very worthwhile read that will certainly entertain you and may transform your thinking while it's at it.
Fantastic! Oct 15, 2007
Just a good thriller! First book I have read by either of these authors and I was very impressed!
