Read the Book "The Last Disciple" Online

I also found that I wasn't gripped by the main story and became indifferent to what was going to happen by the end. This is not a view that is held by most Christians who expect the rapture, tribulation, anti-christ etc at some point in the future. Whilst personally I don't hold the views of the authors, as it is fiction, this would not have influenced my rating had the story been more comprehensive. I appreciate that the authors made the point that end time views are not something for Christians to divide over and that it is good to keep the dialogue open.

Im unaware of another book out there that presents the preterist view in a fictional story, and that alone earns The Last Disciple recognition. Nero, of course, is the Beast of Revelation, and a beastly fellow he is! If appears that youre a preterist, youll love this book.

There were times when the authors would jump to a brand new setting/characters but leave out imperative details.

This book was an excellent read!!

Set in first-century Rome, The Last Disciple weaves together the stories of Gallus Sergius Vitas, a man within the inner circle of Emperor Nero, with the lives of Christians who are experiencing ever-greater persecution for their beliefs. The historical setting of Rome under the rule of Emperor Nero, combined with his ruthless persecution of Christians, makes for a compelling read, equally entertaining and disturbing at the same time. I loved the richness that this book brings to details of the Bible, and I am amazed that they were able to take passages of the Bible and debates about prophecies foretold by Jesus in the gospels or by his disciple John in the book of Revelation, and weave these elements into a tale of gripping suspense.

Hanegraaff's response to the LEFT BEHIND series is another interesting installment in the author's "What They Should Have Written" series.

The Historical importance of the book is a large factor in getting more people reading it. I have read many Articles and books on his reign and all of them are pretty much the same in the end But i do love books from this era, and this one was a great read (view spoiler) But what happens to Sophia, To Vitas, The lil Baby..Does Vitas brother figure out the man he has captured is not the man he is searching for?!?!?!?!

I love reading absorbing stories from this period and, for me, this was that type of book.
