Book Description

Joshua Jordan, former U.S. spy-plane hero now turned weapons designer has come up with a devastatingly effective new missile defense system – the Return to Sender laser weapon. But global forces are mounting against America, and corrupt White House and Capitol Hill leaders are willing to do anything to stop the nation’s impending economic catastrophe – including selling-out Joshua and his weapon. As world events begin setting the stage for the “end of days,” Joshua is forced to consider not only the truth of the biblical prophecies preached by the pastor of his brilliant attorney- wife, but also what gut-wrenching price he is willing to pay to save the nation he loves.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Decent story, too preachy 16 Mar. 2012
    North Koreans accidentally send nuclear missiles to New York City. The disaster is averted at the last second thanks to weapons designer Joshua Jordan's "return to sender" missile defense system. But instead of becoming a hero, he's targeted by Washington bureaucrats for political reasons. Meanwhile, certain people want the technology and send an expert assassin called "The Algerian" to get it from Jordan.

    "Edge of Apocalypse" is a pretty well crafted story and the pace moves along nicely most of the time, keeping you turning the pages. Parts of the story are interesting, others seem a bit too implausible and there's not a whole lot of real suspense, except for a bit in the beginning and at he end. The book would have gotten 3 stars from me if it had been less preachy. Instead of letting the story speak for itself the authors use the novel to preach their political and religious views and this could and should have been toned down to make for a more enjoyable read, although I suppose if you share their views you may find this less distracting and will probably like the novel more than I did. 2+

    5.0 out of 5 stars Edge of Apocalypse "The End Series" 13 July 2010
    By Edna Tollison - Published on
    I loved the Sifi aspects of the book. I found it exciting and believable. I am an avid follower and fan of the Left Behind Series,
    The story has a lot of what's going on in today's world, and incorporates it very into the story line. Any Christian who is paying attention to headlines of the times, as well as major characters in these headlines, knows and understands what is happening.

    The book opens with a missile attack on New York City by an angry North Korean Admiral. Jordan's laser missile defense systems thwarts the attack and saves the city.

    Due to a series of events Joshua Jordan, creator of the missile defense system code-named Return To Sender, is forced to use it without Washington approval. Now foreign nations want to steal it and the U. S. Government is pressuring Jordan to turn over his designs so that, secretly, they could sell it. Criag Parshall, known for his legal fiction, has written, heart-thumping thriller with careful attention to the state of the world right now and how the Bible says we will turn out. Many of the things that are mentioned in the book are in place right now and in use, even though most of us are not aware of them. Dr. LaHaye and Craig Parshall have one agenda in mind and that is the salvation of many through this work of fiction. Joshua Jordan was a hero taking unbelievable chances with his life for the country he loved. When he retired from field work he became a weapon designer trying to still protect the United States from threats outside and inside the nation.

    Congress, however, is not happy that Jordan will not hand over the details of his defense system. They feel that the United States government should own that kind of technology and not some private company.

    Jordan is chairman of a secret group bent on revealing the shady government secrets. And there is a secret group of Christians who call themselves "The Patriots" who come out of nowhere to aid Jordan in his fight against Congress.

    All in all I think this is a great read "even though I have the audio" I like to read anything from Tim LaHaye but had not read anything of Craig Parshall. I do believe that the time for Jesus' return is close if not at our door. I believe everything in the Bible and what is happening in America is so sad, we were a Christian nation "as that is why our forefathers" came to America for so that they could worship free. But each year we can look around and see communism is everywhere,

    4.0 out of 5 stars Big Improvement With Parshall On Board 8 July 2011
    By Wolfe Moffat - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Remember when "Left Behind" came out for the first time? I do. People were ranting and raving over it like it was the next big thing. And it was. Same way with the stupid "Purpose Driven Life," when people were going absolutely bonkers over the latest and greatest thing out there in the Christian market. People were saying, "Oh, you HAVE to read this, and you HAVE to read that." Let me tell you something, I did read "Left Behind," the first 3 books, actually. And it wasn't that I wasn't impressed, but I really wasn't all that interested. "Left Behind" became the new status symbol as a result of Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. Make no mistake about it, these books changed a few lives, and they got people to open up their Bibles.

    Now Tim LaHaye is back, and with him is the only reason I've even thought about giving these new "End" books a 2nd though, Craig Parshall. I've been reading Craig Parshall since the beginning of his "Chambers of Justice," with "The Resurrection File" leading the way, and I've been impressed with him ever since. So this time around, I wanted to see if Parshall would make a difference with Tim LaHaye. I think they both did, with the idea being LaHaye's, but the writing is obviously Parshall. That much is evident to me, because LaHaye has never claimed to be a great writer. But he does have great ideas, and I think it's about time he got somebody good like Craig Parshall to work with him. Nothing against Jerry Jenkins when I say that, because Jenkins has some awesome stand-alone work.

    This begins with an attack as North Korea has the tables turned against them, and blown up in their face. That happens because of Joshua Jordan, and he has a little trick up his sleeve called RETURN-TO-SENDER! Well, that little trick up his sleeve is now wanted by government officials, not to mention international threats. And U.S. higher-ups will do anything to force Jordan to give up the goods.

    Jordan is forced to see the big picture through bigger eyes, and he wrestles with a faith he never embraced before. His wife, Abby, has known Jesus Christ as her personal savior, and she prays for Jordan constantly, and brings her knowledge of the law to the table. Can Jordan step up to the plate when it matters for our nation? Will he experience first-hand what it means to truly be a sacrificial lamb?

    In the end, I can say I enjoyed this. Will I be claiming this as my new favorite book of all time? I doubt it. But it kept me interested to the point where I'm ready for another look. "Edge of Apocalypse" is an eye opener, and I'm hoping that "Thunder of Heaven" offers some more good stuff. With Tim LaHaye's ideas and Craig Parshall's writing, we just might have it! I hope so.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reading 24 Jun. 2010
    By Timothy T. Graziotti - Published on
    I highly recommend this book. It's exciting, thrilling and relates to the attitudes & ideals facing the US today. The religious message within the book is not overbearing and in your face. It naturally flows with the plot. As do the individual characters and events.

    I loved the Sifi aspects of the book. I found it exciting and believable. The book starts out with the launch of two North Korean Nuclear missiles at NY City. Joshua Jordan a civilian contractor developed a system that reconfigures the navigation flight path to a mirror opposite and sends the missiles back to their origin. From there it's a series of events by local and foreign powers to use the "RTS" technology for their own advantage.

    I can't wait for the next book in the series!

    5.0 out of 5 stars An Exciting End Times Thriller By Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall 7 Aug. 2010
    By Patience ~ Christian/Thriller Author - Published on
    This book was very exciting from the first chapter. It's about Joshua Jordan who is a former U.S. spy-plane hero who has created the world's most sophisticated missile defense system to secure America against her enemies including North Korea who sends a nuclear strike on New York City. Joshua finds himself ensnared between international and domestic attackers who scheme to steal the weapon. As world events begin to unfold as prophesied in the Bible, Jordan must decide if he will save his country.

    Highly recommended!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall provides readers with an exciting thriller as the United States is on the Edge of Apocalypse 29 Mar. 2010
    By Harriet Klausner - Published on
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Joshua Jordan was a hero taking unbelievable chances with his life for the country he loved. When he retired from field work he became a weapon designer trying to still protect the United States from threats outside and inside the nation. In the Atlantic, a North Korean boat has nuclear missiles aboard. Due to failed communication with his superiors at home, the admiral launches the weapons a

    Two of the missiles head towards New York City; Jordan has minutes to activate the Return to Sender laser guidance system that sends a missile back to its launch site. The counter operation proves successful, but the media questions the consequences while the White House and Senate demand he turn over the Return to Sender system to Senator Stratworth and his committee. When he refuses to give it to anyone outside of the Pentagon as he fears anyone else will sell it for oil and credit. The President and Congress use the media to go after Joshua. Joshua soon learns he might be a target as Iran, North Korea and Russia as well as allies want the system and will go to any length to get it.

    Taking place in the near future in which America is short on cash as a new growing dust bowl threatens Midwest agriculture, corruption permeates the government, Joshua and two secret cabals try to bring back the country to what is once was. Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall provides readers with an exciting thriller as the United Sates is on the Edge of Apocalypse while the hero must deal with the possibility of biblical Armageddon and saving his nation.
