The Seraph Seal by Leonard Sweet, Lori Wagner
An epic tale of good and evil based on the four horsemen of the Apocalypse found in Revelation.
Using the four horsemen of the Apocalypse to symbolize the four
Gospels, four transcendentals, and four forces of the universe (air,
water, earth, and fire), Sweet and Wagner weave a fast-paced, end-times
tale of good vs. evil and the promise of a new dawn for humanity.
Set in 2048, when planet Earth is suffering from the damaging effects
of years of misuse and abuse, cultural history professor Paul Binder
receives a mysterious letter that leads him to examine a lost
2nd-century Diatessaron manuscript. Ancient prophecies, cryptic letters,
and strange events set him on a course to uncover the missing clues
that could lead humanity into a new age. Layered with forgotten
symbolism from the ancient, Jewish, and Christian traditions, the novel
is a type of engaged fiction in which the main character's lost journal
serves as a guide to the reader in interpreting clues and understanding
the novel's conclusion.
I had the hardest time reading this book and couldn't get past the first chapter. Truth be told, I might have been scared off by the introduction. I just did not understand it. If you like the more complicated reads, this might just be the book for you. Before you decide not to buy this book, please read some other reviews.
