A good inspiration

I found the book as good as the Left Behind series. In fact in some ways I found it better. The left behind series inspired me to look into prophecy theory a lot more then I ever had before. I wanted to check what I was reading. Tim La Haye has done the same thing for me here. Using fiction and writng about this biblical archeologist encouraged me to subscribe to Biblical Aarcheology Review as soon as I finished listening. Like Paul in the book I became interested in the feild. Were the characters meant to be believable, not likely, are all the details perfect, No, but it was an entertaining fiction and I think it did what it was suppose to: make me find out and study for myself.

Skip the book into

Though this book didn't live up to expectations, I did enjoy the story. I felt the Left Behind series is much better. If you enjoy a good adventure/historical mystery/comic book with semi-believable characters, you'll enjoy this one.

To assist in your enjoyment you'll need to either skip LaHaye's intro, or disregard his description of the story's hero. He calls the hero someone who "faces many of the challenges of our day. Many that are familiar to all of us." You'd only be familiar with those challenges if your name was Indiana Jones.
