Book Review The Seraph Seal
Book review The Seraph Seal by Leonard Sweet and Lori Wagner
I received my copy of the Sheraph seal through book sneeze.
First, Ill say it was really interesting and fascinating , and you can tell a lot of work went into it.
This is a Christian based book about the Apocalypse and events leading up to it.
At the start of the book the year is 2048 and the world has basically forgotten about traditional beliefs in God and in its place is a organization called the new selfer method of belief.
This is the story of Paul Binder a University of Virginia Historian and his friends as they are lead to different clues about the coming world end. Paul has been give a key and a cryptic note, which starts him on his journey to try and figure out what it means and why it was given to him.
This is a longer book but because its so different and interesting its hard to put down and is a very different view of the mysteries surrounding the biblical narrative of the apocalypse.
Its a really good mystery and even has some romance. This story traces the movements of not only Paul's group of the faithful but also the decisions and progress of the unfaithful. Those people who by their greed and and political power try to take over each others countries and corner the market on resources. The people in power cause a lot of destruction around the world causing millions to die of disease and starvation.
Paul's Group is concerned with one thing, finding out what they can do to save as many people as they can. They discover many clues through an ancient newly discovered Syrian manuscript that was found buried but in tact.
They also find other clues as to what will happen, what happened in the passed, and how it will all come together at the end.
From M theory to String Theory to biblical prophecy this story weaves science with Theology.
Even though this is a christian based book I think anyone who enjoys political intrigue and mystery or Science Fiction will think its fascinating and well worth the read. This story is a mixture of the thrills of of the movie Armageddon with a dash of the Davinci code and a bit of message stories like Left Behind. It shows people at their best and worst and offers a happy ending. A must read for Christian fiction readers.
Thank you for reading my review :)
