Reviews - What do our customers think?
Major page-turner  Dec 7, 2007
I tend to read more nonfiction than fiction, but I must say I've enjoyed all 3 books in this series. All 3 have been definite page-turners.

The plot is a little complicated at times and it can be hard to keep track of what's going on. Especially since the book keeps you guessing at a lot of characters' real intentions (which is one of the things that keeps this book so interesting). Although the book makes no effort to make the ending surprising, the characters keep you guessing and there's suspense until the very end.

One reviewer commented that this book is a bit of a Trojan horse for Hanegraaff's ideas, which is true. A few scenes were obvious devices to work the theology in, but at least the scenes were still plausible and didn't seem too out of place. As Hanegraaff often says on his radio show, ideas have consequences, and the authors try to show that here. Dispensationalism has major consequences for the Middle East and our foreign policy.

My only complaint was that this book was completely unrelated to the last two in the series. I hope the authors write another "Last Disciple" book soon so I can find out what happens to those characters too.

Overall, I'd recommend this book, both for its ideas and the story itself. It's very good on all accounts, and a very worthwhile read that will certainly entertain you and may transform your thinking while it's at it.
Fantastic!  Oct 15, 2007
Just a good thriller! First book I have read by either of these authors and I was very impressed!
Entertaining and Engaging  Sep 15, 2007
Fuse of Armageddon is a novel to be enjoyed on two levels. On one level, it is a solid piece of Christian fiction. Sigmund Brouwer is a clever story teller who rises to the task of authoring a thriller tailored to a modern Christian audience. The plot's strength is its subtlety; the heroes are not gloriously converted or the perfect blend of holiness and worldly wisdom. They are fallible and at times their faith seems ambiguous. Even the villians have a point. Although Brouwer is clever writer who has done his homework, at times the plot lines seemed a bit rushed and the dialogue stiff and awkward.

On the second level, the novel is essentially a trojan horse for Hanegraaf's theological position on the end times, which runs counter to the doctrines held by millions of evangelical Christians. Through the fictional characters, Hanegraaf is able to carefully pinpoint and apply pressure on some weak points of popular end times theology. For example, querying why there would be the need for restored Jewish sacrifices in the light of Christ's atonement does indeed give one pause. That it comes from a Islamic terrorist is a delicious irony.

One flaw is the thinly veiled contempt for those who hold the contrary view, and that comes out in the book. Evidently to Hanegraaf, the millions of believers who hold to "Rapture theology" have basically been duped by slick talking TV preachers, and are stuck in an intellectual rut of not being able to think through difficult theological concepts. Maybe they need to listen to the Bible Answer Man broadcast more.

To his credit though, Hanegraaf doesn't waste a lot time splitting doctrinal hairs, but emphasizes the disastrous impact of years of western Christian neglect toward the Palestinians and the geopolitical events in the Middle East. On this point, Hanegraaf's moral logic is unassailable.

This is a very good book; very entertaining and morally engaging to anyone who has wondered about the Middle East crisis from a Biblical perspective. You may not agree with the thesis, but it contains a viewpoint that is intelligently and creatively presented.
Good read  Sep 13, 2007
Originally published on my blog at

Recently my wife & I sat down & had lunch with a much more experienced writer and author, Sigmund Brouwer. He & I are working together on a project that is yet to be released, but he gave me a gift in his latest work, entitled Fuse of Armageddon.

It's a strange animal.

In writing style, the pace matches some of Clancy's novels (most notably Rainbow Six), constantly accelerating toward the climax. This works both for and against the novel, as I finished it in two sittings (would have been one had I a longer flight), but there is only a much abbreviated dénouement to close it, where a few more pages would have been warranted.

Thematically it takes aim at a very specific target market: open-minded, evangelical Christians who read thrillers such as the ridiculously popular Left Behind series. In all truth it is very open all, with vividly detailed locales and arguments that lay the foundation before building upon them, but this does not discount it's primary role. Fuse is really meant to expand evangelical Christians' thinking to really look at the consequences of a dispensational eschatology hell-bent on pre-millenialism. If you didn't understand that last sentence, don't worry about it; I didn't mean you.

The sarcastic comments of Khaled Safady probably capture this irony the best. In listening in to a Christian group touring the Holy Land, he juts in (paraphrased):

"In miles, how long is that river of blood?" (referring to the predicted river of blood from God's 'winepress of wrath')

"Roughly two hundred miles, twenty-five feet wide and four and a half feet deep."

"Incredible. How many people would this require?"

"Two hundred million."

"But I'm a physician. I've seen horrible accidents. I've seen people die. Any wound with enough blood loss to lead to death stops the heart long before the heart can pump itself dry. How will Christ squeeze the remaining blood from two hundred million bodies?"

"Revelation tells us there is a great winepress and that the blood came from the winepress."

"Incredible. All two hundred million bodies get fed through a winepress to be squeezed of their blood? How long would that take? Even at the rate of one body per second, that would only be 60 bodies per minute, 3600 bodies per hour, and from what I've calculated just now...maybe 80,000 per day. Make it 100,000 for even math."

"I find this macabre..."

"But earlier I heard a chorus of amens and as you had us contemplate the deaths of liberals and gays, Arabs and Muslims who are left behind. I find that equally macabre"

"The unjust will pay the price"

"So you're telling me Jesus will return and spend his first 5 and a half years squeezing out the blood of his enemies?"

If you're going to read Revelation and other biblical prophesy as literal events, fine. But accept the consequences of that interpretation, as grotesque and horrific as they may be. Or take a step back and seriously re-evaluate what brought you those beliefs.

I know that I have gotten truly enraged; something that has happened only 3 times since leaving home; listening to a tele-evangelist giving Israel carte blanche for genocidal warfare. I in no way believe in supporting terrorism, and that includes the terrorism of nation-states.

This book is not a theological breakdown, nor is it a political seminar or a primer on Mid-East policy. What it is, is a thriller that leaves you with the question: do my beliefs add or detract to the problems at hand? Is that because of me, or because of the belief?

And that is what makes this such a wonderful book. It's a step back from my usual bookshelf (I prefer source works, history and Dostoevsky) but for a general audience, this is a voice that needs to be heard, a novel that needs to be read, and more than just read. It requires action, and like the Jonathan Silver in the novel, making the jump from theory to action can be a frightening one, but it can make a world of difference.

An amazing political thriller gives a new spin on end times  Sep 5, 2007
I've read a lot of books about the eventual second coming of Christ--the fiction, and a few of the nonfiction. I've studied Revelation, I've spent long hours thinking about what it all might mean. I'm not alone in that, I know. Millions of Christians, of Americans, are preparing themselves for the End. But not until I read Brouwer & Hanegraaff's novel Fuse of Armageddon did I stop to wonder who I might be hurting with my beliefs.

Jonathan Silver is a well known TV preacher who's been made famous for his studies of the End Times. So when he and his tour group go missing from Jerusalem, it's news that rocks the world. Professional hostage negotiator Mulvaney Quinn is brought in to handle the case, in spite of the fact that stubborn cop Kate Penner is trying to get him back to Vegas to face charges of murder. As the stakes rise and the tensions soar, they uncover a plan that could very well trigger the ultimate war. . . which is just what some people want.

Fuse of Armageddon is a fast paced, action-packed thriller that will have you turning the pages as fast as you can. But what's more, it'll make you think. Through the eyes of Quinn, who has lived as an American in the Middle East for a decade, we see a new side to the End Times debate--the socio-political one. He explains how the rest of the world sees evangelical Christian views, and how the actions taken by Americans have upset the balance in that war-torn area of the world. Fuse of Armageddon puts faces on the players in the conflict and perspective on the situation. It's also an amazing tale in and of itself, appealing to that love of secret societies and hidden agendas.

If you've read and loved other End Times novels, then this is a must-read. If you've put them off for one reason or another, then this might be just the book you want to read to provide that educated look, along with mind-blowing entertainment. The action will keep any lover of suspense on the edge of his seat, and the character development will pull you right into the story along with them.

Fuse of Armageddon is a book you won't want to put down--but when you do, you'll come away with a new perspective of the world you live in.
