This is one of the best book reviews of my novel series Chronicles of the Apocalypse.
The reason is because the reviewer, Jerry Bower, is both responsibly knowledgeable on the material AND read all the books.
PLEASE note, that the podcast link at the bottom of the page is even better than the review and one of the BEST interviews on the series ever. We talk about the historical event of the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70, Josephus, the origin of the book of Revelation, 666, various interpretations of the end times and how they fail, false prophets of today, but also the supernatural dimension of the unseen realm as described by scholar Michael S. Heiser. I explain how I incorporate Heiser’s divine council and Watcher paradigm and how it fits into Revelation in the first century.
I was a co-host again on the show with Michael Heiser, Doug Van Dorn, Natalina, Doug Overmyer, and two guests, Josh Peck and Derek Gilbert.
We were recorded live at a Branson Conference on the topic: Isaac Newton’s view of Bible prophecy and his prediction of 2060.
But also, did you know he was an anti-Trinitarian?
This is a great one. We talk about the dangers of people thinking they are God’s chosen ones to interpret prophecy and how it is too easy these days to follow in Isaac Newton’s footsteps and think you have it all figured out, when in fact, you are wrong.
But we also talk about this fascinating brilliant scientist who changed the world with good science, but was a mixed bag of alchemy, esotericism and other strange beliefs.
Revelation is surely one of the most controversial and debated books of the Bible. It is visionary, it is fantastic, it is earth-shattering in its significance. And I had always assumed it was about the end of the world in our future. But I would eventually discover that it was not about the end of the world, but about the end of the old covenant and its earthly elements of holy city and temple in the past. It is earth-shattering in heavenly significance, but not in earthly geographic scope.
This is a GREAT second part of an interview I had with Andy and Mel about the end times and the Bible.
Their show is called The Not So Dissident Future. I am humbled to have discovered that I have had an influence on changing their views.
Have prophetic events that many of us think are in the future actually happened already? Mel and Andy chat with Hollywood Screenwriter and author of Chronicles of the Nephilim and Chronicles of The Apocalypse, Brian Godawa. They examine the theory that much of what Jesus predicted would happen ‘soon’, has actually happened in the 1st century.
Josh is quite Wise about the Last Days. So our talk was quite informed. Plus, I love this guy’s voice. 🙂
