Publisher's Summary

An explosive tale of spiritual warfare and the origin story of the most controversial book of the Bible: Revelation. Book one in the shocking controversial series Chronicles of the Apocalypse.
Ancient Rome, A.D. 64. Alexander, a young Jewish doctor, is torn between his loyal Roman citizenship and his passionate Jewish faith. As a personal physician to Roman Prefect Severus, he is ushered into the circle of the evil emperor Nero Caesar, a tyrannical beast with diabolical plans of Christian genocide.
Nero blames the Great Fire of Rome on the Christians, which leads to the horrific persecution of the early church including the martyrdom of the apostles Peter and Paul. Alexander finds himself in the middle of this madness, trying to stay alive and protect the Jews from the emperor's paranoia.
Nero discovers that an unknown apostle has written a secret apocalypse scroll rumored to prophesy the destruction of Rome and the end of the world. So he orders Severus and Alexander to find the author, destroy all copies of his scroll and kill him.
But Severus's servant, a bold Christian woman named Cassandra, holds a dark secret that opens the door to a world of spiritual warfare they're not ready to face. It will lead them directly to the true meaning of the apocalypse, the book of Revelation, and it will change their lives forever.

Heart Wrenching anf Fascinating

great first book in this series of the events after the author's last book, 'Jesus Triumphant'. The principalities and powers operate more in the background, or as spirits now.
I feel like this book has laid a lot of groundwork for the story to unfold. As usual, it reads like a suspenseful novel and is based on historical Biblical and extra-biblical literature. Great novel.

Awesome. Another classic by Brian Godawa. A good eye opener for one of the most misunderstood books in the Bible.
The only small section I did not particularly care for was Godawa's presentation of the 3 angel's attempt to capture Appollion before his decent to Tartarus. Godawa showed 2 of the 3 angels engaged in their silly rivalry and inattentive and that was part cause of them not capturing him. I could not wrap my mind around the fact that the evil one was stronger, swifter and far more focused than God's angels. But the book was an absolute classic; can't wait until Remnant comes to Audio books. Godawa is such an awesome narrator Great job!
