As society disentigrates, a self-appointed leader takes over the U.S. government and promises a way out of the darkness. His only obstacle to unlimited world power is the Christian Resistance Movement. The ensuing battle signals the end of the stage. Pat Robertson's first novel, The End of the Age, is a chilling page-turner. It captures how today's headlines may be foreshadowing the imminent approach of the last days and the ultimate battle between good and evil.

The most successful and famous televangelist gives fictional expression to apocalyptic prophecy. In A.D. 2000, a flaming asteroid strikes Earth between Hawaii and California. The consequent tsunami, earthquakes, and volcanism wipe out virtually all life around the northern Pacific rim. This is only the beginning of a plot that unfolds according to the last-days scenario in the biblical Book of Revelation. Successive U.S. presidents commit suicide and are murdered by agents of the Antichrist (aka Mark Beaulieu), who then becomes ruler of a new world order centered in Babylon. Things go from bad to worse, except for the "unaffected" (i.e., those who accept Jesus Christ as their savior), and even they suffer while often becoming guerrilla warriors during the years before . . . Armageddon, of course. Finally, "the reign of Jesus Christ and His saints" begins. With little art but great sincerity and forcefulness, Robertson dramatizes an Evangelical Christian eschatological vision that many fellow evangelicals (such as Tom Sine in Cease Fire ) discount. His book is fascinating, though--all the more so because of the many political and cultural bugbears of the religious right that he manages to drag into the yarn as instruments of Satan. Members of The 700 Club will be enthralled. Ray Olson
