Ryan Kates is a paranormal expert, TV host, and skeptic. He hosts News4th, a nationally popular cable show focused on UFOs, ghosts, and everything that goes bump in the night. Ryan is used to dealing with the weird and unexplainable, but when bizarre paranormal phenomena rock the planet he finds himself questioning his long-held views.
As these phenomena escalate, mass hysteria and political tensions begin to mount on a global scale. The world begins to spin out of control and a former flame reenters Ryan’s life, bringing her family along for the ride. The pawns are moved into place, and Ryan must confront the ultimate evil on the world stage, culminating in a supernatural encounter far beyond his wildest dreams.
The Reluctant Disciple establishes a credible connection between End Times biblical prophecy and our society’s fascination with the paranormal, taking readers on a thrill ride they won’t soon forget
I’ve read many books about the end times but this one was very unique. The story begins with a “ghost story feel” and then evolves into something far more sinister.
The author’s take on the events leading up to the tribulation period (the rapture, the antichrist and false prophet) are very interesting and thought provoking. Because the prophecies in the Bible that have yet to come true are sometimes vague or told with symbolism, there are various theories on how things will occur. There was one thing in the book that really seemed far-fetched to me but could be possible, depending on the current state of society at the time this would occur.
There were many very creepy moments. Demons are the scariest entity to me so there were parts of this book that were very scary.
I loved the chess references and the way everything came together in the end. The way the author weaved the story together was very skillful and clever.
Overall, this was an interesting and creepy story that I enjoyed.
I received this book from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
