The Seraph Seal by Leonard Sweet & Lori Wagner

The Seraph Seal is a very fast paced, action packed book similiar to The DaVinci Code or National Treasure. The story is centered around end of times events in the year 2048, with the main character, Paul, discovering symbols and clues to enable using the four horseman of The Bible's book of Revelation as a way to escape the dying planet Earth and begin life in another world or dimension. This book was very complex, detailed, and sometimes very hard to follow and confusing(until I discovered in the back of the book a list of characters and more detailed notes). The authors obviously are very educated in historical research and spent a lot of time detailing objects and symbols in the book. Although the story was interesting, I felt uneasy throughout the book because of the unbiblical statements and references made, including constant dialouge about God's saving love and love is all you need etc. without mentioning the son of God or saving grace through the cross along with it. The main theme was that certain people had the capability to save and can determine the future based on choices and being in the right place at the right time, which does not have any Biblical authenticity. If you have a high tolerence for complex reading and can tolerate some confusion, then you may like this book.

I received this e-book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
