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).

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 Revelations 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.

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.
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.
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.
