When Russia's richest oil baron is killed, Moscow suddenly teeters on the verge of political chaos. Tehran races to complete its nuclear arsenal. Washington finds herself dangerously divided from her European allies. A new evil looms on the horizon. A dictator is rising in Russia. Iran is feverishly building nuclear weapons. A new axis of evil is emerging, led by Moscow and Tehran. And Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy, two senior White House advisors, find themselves facing the most chilling question of their lives: is the world rushing to the brink of an apocalypse prophesied more than 2,500 years ago?“If you only read one book this year...this is it!” ?Rush Limbaugh, New York Times bestselling author
I guess I should have read the last sentence of the book description more carefully, but I didn't and got this expecting a true political thriller. It was something of that for a little bit, but then more and more it turned into an interpretation of how end-of-the-world prophetic religious texts might be applied to today's geopolitical scene. Mixed in with an increasingly urgent call to messianic Christianity before the end of the world. If you're looking for a book that gives divine intervention as the final and only option (hence the title of the book) for earth's manmade problems, get this. If not, read something else.
