Fire from Heaven
by Greg Sparks


Ever wonder how life on earth might end? New Edition. Exciting new novelist Greg Sparks, using Revelation as his blue print, pens a fascinating interpretation of the end-of-times as foretold by scripture using Christian prophecy. This is not your ‘robots versus humans’ or the latest apocalypse story from Hollywood.

The world is spinning out of control; earthquakes, volcanoes, war, terrorism, darkness, and other unexplained phenomenon are weakening mankind’s own foundations through the supernatural power of God. Hope is gone, fear is universal, and faith is dismal. Armageddon emerges on the horizon in this supernatural Christian thriller.
