MILLENNIUM: THE LORD REIGNS begins with a Prologue titled Crashing Down. Like my previous novel, THE END OF DAYS, it is set in the final weeks of the current era when the Lord’s prophesied end-time judgments are falling upon the decimated world that has just been ruled by the Antichrist, the European-born Emperor Andre, for three and a half years. In the first paragraphs, the new Freedom Tower in lower Manhattan is among the many things described as literally crashing down to the earth, bringing instant emotion to readers worldwide who vividly recall the terror attacks of 9/11 over ten years ago.

In the end, Donna accepts the Lord’s gift of eternal life, but only on her deathbed as an elderly woman. Before that, her licentious affair with Yourgos, who is married, is vividly portrayed, but in a way that Christian parent’s will find acceptable for teenage readers. Sarah’s struggles with Donna allo
