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!
