Acts of God by James Beauseigneaur

Now that Christopher Goodman has the world following him, he begins to slowly take it over. The world looks up to him as a leader after all the disasters that have befallen the earth. Christopher blames it all on Yahweh, the evil god, who wants to cause humankind to bow to him forever. But Christopher leads them in resistance of Yahweh in order to further humankind.

Unsure of what to do in the midst of the crisis, Decker Hawthorne is forced to rely on what the Bible says about the judgements and prepares for them accordingly. While the world falls into turmoil, he does his best to stay afloat.

Many Jews flee to Petra, God's chosen refuge, until the Battle of Armageddon. This book continues in the manual-like writing style of the first two books in this series, though James Beauseigneaur has found a way to make it a little more interesting, at least to me. While the characters never found any personality, James does seem to improve his writing style which has been the main problem with this series.

One of the best things about this series is Christopher's lie about the origin of Yahweh. This could very well be how the Antichrist will deceive the world. James said he would explain his different version of the Rapture that occurred in the first book and he has. He has a good reason for what he believes though some will not agree. This book is probably the best book of the series because of something unexpected that happens at the end.

Another interesting point is that James should really get the credit for first putting to fiction many of the ideas the the more popular Left Behind series later used. If only he could combine with his work, the more interesting characters and engaging writing style created by Jenkins. As it is this series is kind of a hint at what Left Behind would be if written solely by Tim LaHaye, a report on all the good research he put into it.

All in all, this has been an interesting trilogy, even though it could have been better and I applaud James for his efforts.

3.5 stars
