Overview

Paul Stepola, an agent working for the National Peacekeeping Organization (NPO), has been assigned to enforce compliance with the world government's prohibition on religion. Paul relishes his job and is good at it. He is determined to expose underground religion--flush it out, expose it, and kill it--until his life is turned upside down and he is forced to look at life in a different way.

As Paul begins to unravel the truth about what he has found, events taking place around the world are starting to make sense. Something big is coming--something that can't be stopped. And it is coming soon.

Soon: The Beginning of the End

Written by Lynda from Tucson, AZ on March 8th, 2005

  • Book Rating: 3/5

If you enjoyed the Left Behind series by Jerry B Jenkins and Tim LaHaye you will probably enjoy this new series by Jenkins. The story develops quickly and you wonder how long new convert, Paul Stepola, will be able to keep his status as double agent a secret. The whole story parallels Revelations and some of the characters could use a little more development. I understand this is the first of new series, so possibly the characters will develop more in future books.
