Edge of Apocalypse pulls you into an adrenaline-fueled political thriller laced with End Times prophecy. From Tim LaHaye, creator and co-author of the world-renowned Left Behind series---the most successful adult fiction series ever written---and Craig Parshall comes an epic story ripped from the headlines of world events and filtered through Scriptural prophecy. Set in the near future, Edge of Apocalypse chronicles the beginning of The End---the earth-shattering events leading up to the Apocalypse foretold in Revelation.Joshua Jordan, former U.S. spy-plane hero turned weapons designer, creates the world's most sophisticated missile defense system, a laser shield code-named Return to Sender. Even as Jordan hopes to secure America against a brazen array of new enemies, he finds himself trapped between international as well as domestic assailants. Global forces conspire to steal the defense weapon even as U.S. government leaders will do anything to stop the nation's impending economic catastrophe---including selling-out Jordan and his weapon.With help from a group of powerfully connected Christian leaders known as The Patriots, Jordan works to save the nation from economic and moral collapse---and to clear his name. As world events begin setting the stage for the 'end of days' foretold in Revelation, Jordan must consider not only the biblical prophecies preached by his wife's pastor, but the personal price he must pay if he is to save the nation he loves.
Harnessing the tension of impending disaster that he has perfected in his many best-selling apocalyptic novels, Tim LaHaye joins forces with Craig Parshall, a high-powered Washington, D.C. lawyer-turned-novelist, for EDGE OF APOCALYPSE. This is Joshua Jordan's story. He is a mildly non-believing businessman living a good life in Manhattan with his successful lawyer wife and his son, who aspires to be an artist. But looming over their lives is a very real threat of nuclear war, which is cloaked in layers of conspiratorial government activities. Jordan's faltering faith will be tested, as he is faced with hard questions of sacrifice, family devotion, and patriotism.
