This second book in the End series continues shortly from where the first book finished, and can be confusing at times, with little recounting of the first book. However, the plot could be ripped from today’s headlines. With fast-moving encounters and international intrigue, the state of affairs are eerily realistic in this novel. Outstanding gospel messages are tucked in between significant fear of where our nation could be going.

As terrorists threaten the United States, Joshua Jordan struggles to get answers about why the missile defense system he created for commercial airlines has failed. Joshua feels compelled to do whatever he can to save the country he loves. There is a clear connection between this and other events occurring around the globe, and the end of days as foretold in the Bible. (ZONDERVAN, Jul., 368 pp., $24.99)
