Product Description

From Library Journal

Brandon and Sarah Martus, end-time prophets of Revelation, are back in the engrossing third book in Myers's (Threshold) continuing exploration of modern science and religion. DNA experiments, conducted in the first two books, have resulted in the total corruption of a 15-year-old boy, who channels an entity interested in creating hell on earth. As Sarah is called to heal the boy and experiences a crisis of faith, Brandon realizes his beloved wife must fall and possibly never return. Thought-provoking, challenging, and timely, this will be devoured by fans of the "Left Behind" series (see above).

Review

“My words will become a fire in your mouth that you cannot contain. They will burn until you have warned my Bride. Warn her before it is too late!”

So begins an astonishing journey into the depths of holiness, as newlyweds Brandon and Sarah Martus accept the call to become Revelation’s two prophets.

This is not another “end-times” thriller, but one of the most intense and thought-provoking pieces of Christian fiction to come along in years. As the couple prepare for the final showdown against Satan himself, they must live and proclaim the truths Christ has given his end-times church. From America, to archaeological ruins dating back to Bible times, to the Himalayas, and finally to Jerusalem, Brandon and Sarah battle the forces of man and hell while learning the true cost of following Christ . . . and experiencing a Love far deeper than either could have imagined.

Author Bill Myers says, “Writing this book has changed my life.”

After reading Bill Myers' incredible Blood Of Heaven, (one of the best books I have read in recent years), I was quite eager to read the second book in the trilogy, Threshold. I was extrememly disappointed with Threshold, it was far from a page turner. It was a very easy book to put down, I considered not finishing it a few times, however I was able to eventually get through it. I was extremely leery about picking up Fire Of Heaven, however the appearance of characters from Blood Of Heaven helped me to buy this book. How does it rate compared to the first two books of the trilogy? It is no where near as good as the first book and it is much better than the second.
I would have enjoyed this book so much more if it were 75 - 100 pages shorter. Myers spent far to much time setting the stage for the books final confrontation. I did not begin to really enjoy the book until I was nearly half way through it. As I stated earlier this one is much better than Threshold, however I was not captivated as I was with Blood Of Heaven. I found myself skimming some sections and really wanting to skip over others.
I am glad that I stayed with this book because Myers really kicked it into gear in the end. After finishing the book I could almost forgive Myers for boring me through the first half of the book. The second half of the book, along with the very exciting ending, were worth wading through some boring chapters.

Bill Myers makes up for some loose writing (ie. "overindulged spectacle of bad taste") with some creative genius. Myers has a great way of dropping Biblical truths and themes into modern day settings. Where other Christian fiction plows old ground with occasionally better writing, Myers throws caution to the wind and writes from his heart and his imagination.
In this book, Brandon and Sarah, Katherine and Eric--all characters from his previous books in the trilogy--are brought together to deal with physical and spiritual enemies. Ranging from Turkey, to the Himalayas, to Jerusalem, the story moves along quickly. The spiritual allegory of Christ and His bride is powerfully portrayed through Brandon and Sarah's marital difficulties, while also showing the miracle of forgiveness in real-life relationships.
Myers warns us at the beginning of the book that this one is essentially for preaching at the choir. He even encourages the reader to return it to the shelf if they seek only fast-paced escapism. With this warning in mind, I was able to speed through the story (after a ponderous first thirty pages), and reach the conclusion with many spiritual themes to contemplate.
Creativity and Biblical challenge seize the day; Myers continues to explore new ideas in new ways.

This book was no doubt a great read, but not at all what I expected. When I heard it was a combination of two of his earlier books (Fire of Heaven, and Threshold), I was excited because I loved both. However, to find that the innocent hero of one book (Fire of Heaven) is now the evil villian of another was hard to accept. Though the character change was explained, it was not sufficiently justified. It was nice to see Brandon mature from "Threshold" and become the prophet he was called to be though. My big question is "Will there be another sequel?" The book doesn't end necessarily as a cliffhanger, but there are so many dangling plot threads that you have to wonder if he's just leaving those there for the imagination or if he's planning on tying it all up in a last installment of the series. Of course, it would be very hard to make another book of this (you'll understand why when you read it), but it could be done. To fully appreciate the book, you need to read the other two first though. All in all, a good book with a good (though, at times, disturbing) plot and it's well-paced throughout - but it just leaves too much "out there" at the end. If there's another book in the series, I'll read it without hesitation. Maybe then that will help this one sit better as far as a story goes. As far as the message IN the story, THAT stands on it's own and no one should comment on that!

Format: Paperback
The Fire of Heaven is the third book in The Blood of Heaven Trilogy. I enjoyed all three books, but the third one was the absolute best. I must say this book challenged me to look inward and apply the teachings of the book of Revelations to myself. In this book, Myers takes us to Turkey and walks us through the Biblical landmarks where the original seven churches in the Bible where. As he describes the condition of the landmark, Myers incorporates the letter directed at the appropriate church into the story. As if this isn't stunning enough, he applies it to the modern day church. Although this book has its thrilling moments, it is not exactly in the same genre as Left Behind. This novel was written for people who are already Christians. It will change the way you view Christ, the early church, and yourself.

Who would think that a novel could be as challenging as any teaching book. That is what you will find in Fire of Heaven. Bill Myers has presented us with a tightly written allegory on God's love and holiness based loosely on the book of Revelation.
It was one of the most disturbing books I have ever read; it was definitely not what I would expect from a novel. I say disturbing, because my entire soul was stirred by the challenges the book raised to me. It called me back to my first love with God, to holiness, to faith, and worship like no book has done in some time.
I am deeply moved by the message of this book, and have been challenged to more christlikeness through reading it.
And the story is good too.
