One e-mail. Five lines. 4,000 dead. And it is only just beginning… When a small boy in Iowa forwards a mysterious email from ‘God’ to a small group of friends, he unwittingly releases a trigger that sends blood pouring throughout his farming community. Thousands more are dead across the country in dozens of simultaneous terror attacks and the government blames fundamentalists who want to trigger the Apocalypse. FBI Agent Joe Unes reluctantly teams with reclusive Internet radio host Barney Ison (from Sharon K. Gilbert’s The Armageddon Strain) to expose the plot -- and discovers that he's not contending against flesh and blood.

This is "End Times" Christian fiction.
This book belongs only under Christian fiction. It is not "News and Politics" and it is not Science Fiction. It is a total cliche.
This is a fast paced great listen
I was hooked in the first chapter. The story presented is so scary and timely it’s impossible to put down. The characters are likeable and realistic. So there is a little moralizing, it’s short and quite obvious; maybe I might learn something from the Bible and become a better person. Don’t let these mini sermons discourage you from checking it out. I don't see how can it hurt me? Most likely the opsite. What are some people so angry and afraid of?
I enjoyed this podcast. The premise of the story was thought provoking and the emphasis on religion in relation to politics gave me something to think about. The characters were a little underdeveloped, or maybe too perfect to be believeable on the Christian side of the arguement (I can say this as a Christian who knows a lot of imperfect, but committed Christians), but overall it was a story worth listening to.
