Publisher's Summary

Two nuclear wars. Three asteroids. Demonic madness that kills one third of the world's population. Into this, a savior will rise, cloned from Christ. It's not fiction. It's prophecy.
The Messiah of the new age. His coming is prophesied by more than a dozen major religions. Cloned from live cells of Jesus Christ found on the Shroud of Turin, Christopher Goodman was born into the most turbulent time in human history. Mentored by former UN Assistant Secretary-General Robert Milner, Christopher rises in position and power, and displays remarkable wisdom and compassion. But through disjointed bits of dreams that sometimes haunt him, Christopher reveals significant troubling errors in the biblical record of Jesus' life.
The reason for Robert Milner's interest in Christopher becomes clear: the world is about to undergo a time of destruction and chaos darker than any in history, with impending nuclear war merely a faint precursor. Milner explains that without Christopher, humanity will not long survive. Under Christopher's leadership, however, mankind stands on the threshold of a final great evolutionary leap that will bestow on the human race god-like powers. This is the reason, Milner says, that Christopher was born.
In Israel, an unexpected threat to Christopher's ascension is growing: two men, possessed of incredible supernatural powers, one claiming to be the 2000-year-old Apostle John, the other an apostate Hasidic rabbi named Saul Cohen. Together, the men lead an outlawed cult of 144,000 followers, each branded with the names Yahweh and Yeshua on their foreheads.

Great idea but falls short

Would you try another book from James BeauSeigneur and/or Kevin O'Brien?

BeauSeigneur yes. O'Brian.. Doubtful


Would you be willing to try another book from James BeauSeigneur? Why or why not?

Yes. Good premise but the story gets lost in the politics of the UN. It gets rather tedious. Big shifts in time.


What didn’t you like about Kevin O'Brien’s performance?

The narrator's voice of the characters give many a cartoonish feel. The voices are actually irritating at times.


Was The Christ Clone Trilogy - Book One worth the listening time?

Only to get to book two.


Any additional comments?

I am enjoying book 2 so much better than this one. The narration is at times laughable and irritating. The story drones on about political maneuvering at the UN that could better be spent on filling some gaps of time.

Waste of time and money

This book was a huge disappointment. I hoped for a fictitious rendering of the events written in the Book of Revelation. Instead it was amateurish, disjointed, and very unbelievable. For example, 20% of the population inexplicably dropped dead, and people simply went on with ordinary life. Then there was a nuclear explosion, and the main characters just went to the next meeting. Are you kidding me?

The performer was awful! His women's voices either sounded like screeching crones or simpletons. Many of the character's voices were just cheesy accents. In parts, it sounded like he was recording in a large empty warehouse.

I listened to the first half then finally gave up - something I rarely do.
