More than 20 years after the “Left Behind” books sparked a major interest in end-times theology, another end-times series is being released – but it’s nothing like those earlier books.
The series by author Brian Godawa is called “Chronicles of the Apocalypse,” with the first book, “Tyrant: Rise of the Beast,” detailing a scene set in A.D. 64 in which Roman Emperor Nero seeks to track down a secret Christian document that undermines the Roman empire and predicts the end of the world.
This new story has many modern-day parallels.
It’s the latest biblical fantasy book by Godawa, whose earlier “Chronicles of the Nephilim” series was wildly popular.
Brian tells us:
Why he sees modern-day parallels between the times of Emperor Nero, who persecuted Christians, and events of today.
How the theology behind “Chronicles of the Apocalypse” differs from the “Left Behind” books.
Why Christians should not be afraid of reading biblical fantasy books – and how such books can encourage them.
Finally, Brian tells us how his interpretation of the book of Revelation differs from the more popular “Left Behind” interpretation.
We learned a lot about Scripture and the apocalypse during our discussion with Brian, and we know you will, too!
