This is a FASCINATING discussion. One of my most interesting.
I was on Rob Skiba’s podcast talking about the End Times and the failure of modern Bible Prophecy pundits over and over and over again.
With such a track record of absolute and total failures, maybe it’s not because individuals are wrong in specific interpretations. Maybe its the entire system that is wrong.
Consider something radically different. Consider preterism…
What happens when two heretics discuss opposing views on the End Times? Find out in this first of a multi-part series, which will compare Brian Godawa’s Preterist views versus Rob Skiba’s Futurist views concerning what the Bible calls the “Last Days.” In this broadcast, Brian lays out the foundation for why he no longer believes in the Futurist position, as described in his latest series of books.

Finally! It’s here!
Listen to the first of the Chronicles of the Apocalypse on Audio. (or get it on ebook or paper)
The apostle John writes the book of Revelation under the brutal regime of the evil emperor Nero. And the message of the secret apocalypse: The terrible judgment of God will shortly take place, and Jesus is coming quickly.
You will believe what happens next…
An epic tale of two cities: Rome and Jerusalem in the first century. A theological novel of spiritual warfare with angels and demons and the end of the old covenant age.

Okay, maybe not EVERYTHING. But certainly most things. Shocking, but true. The typical scenario of a rapture, Antichrist, 7 year Tribulation etc. all in our future simply doesn’t hold up to Scripture. Find out where you can begin to discover a more biblical way of reading the End Times through the context of the ancient Jewish mindset not our own modern one.
I was on Off the Grid Podcast talking about my new series, Chronicles of the Apocalypse. It was a good show. Very informative and helpful.
Check out the podcast here.
Here is what they write about the interview:
Brian tells us:
- Why he sees modern-day parallels between the times of Emperor Nero, who persecuted Christians, and events of today.
- How the theology behind “Chronicles of the Apocalypse” differs from the “Left Behind” books.
- Why Christians should not be afraid of reading biblical fantasy books – and how such books can encourage them.
Finally, Brian tells us how his interpretation of the book of Revelation differs from the more popular “Left Behind” interpretation.
We learned a lot about Scripture and the apocalypse during our discussion with Brian, and we know you will, too!
OFF THE GRID PODCAST
This was a great interview with a great host, Adam Sayne.
You are gonna love it. First off, he introduces the audience to the basic schools of eschatology and the end times.
Then at around 30:00 I come on and talk about the theological foundation of my new novel series, Chronicles of the Apocalypse.
I tell my own story of how I changed my view on the end times, I address Matthew 24 and the Last Days, the problem of hyperliteralism, as well as the ancient Hebrew background to understanding the imagery of the book of Revelation.
Listen to it here.
Tyrant: Rise of the Beast: Rome, A.D. 64. A Roman prefect and his Jewish servant are ordered by the mad emperor Nero to track down a secret Christian document that undermines the Roman empire and predicts the end of the world. But they’re not prepared for the spiritual warfare they’ve unleashed. The truth behind the origin of the most controversial book of the Bible: Revelation. A historical conspiracy thriller with angels and demons.
It’s coming. It’s controversial. It’s going to cause a protest.
But it’s going to entertain the hell out of you — with the truth of heaven.
It won’t be out until near end of February.

CHARACTERS & SYNOPSIS HERE
Post-apocalyptic action. Mad Max, a loner in a desert world of male gangs, cars, and water shortage is held captive by an evil dictator. When one of the dictator’s chief drivers, Imperator Furiosa, turns against him and escapes with female sex slaves, Max is pulled into the ride of his life – or death.
Mad Max Reboot with a Gender Transformation
Actually, the logline isn’t really accurate, cause it makes it seem like it’s Max’s story. But it isn’t. It’s Furiosa’s story. She is the real hero of the piece. Which is interesting, since Max, made famous by Mel Gibson (and made famous Mel Gibson), has been the star of the series of post-apocalyptic macho mayhem from the beginning. It looks like this testosterone franchise just got itself castrated with a feminist subversion, a sign of the real war — on boys.
It should have been called: Imperator Furiosa and Her Dog Max.
I gotta hand it to Miller, the filmmaker, it is a brilliant tactic of social commentary to make an action movie that subverts the genre by giving the viewer what they want, but twisting it into an indictment against them. A kinder gentler misandry.
I wrote about the feminist action silliness of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Well, that was NOTHING, compared to this. Read on… Continue reading
