5.0 out of 5 stars exciting thriller 28 Sept. 2005
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Once Vitas was part of Nero's inner circle until at a feast he tried to choke the emperor because the ruler planned to have his way with his wife Sophia, a follower of Christos. He was supposed to be sent to the arena to die but a group of powerful Romans set in motion a plan that would have someone else take his place while he was sent to Alexandria, with John, THE LAST DISCIPLE who wrote the letter of revelation on Patmos.

The people who saved Vitas believe he has a chance of killing Nero once he gathers the puzzle pieces that they sent to various people in the empire and deciphers them. Vitas doesn't know that his Sophia mourns his death, not even receiving comfort from her belief in Christos. Damian, Vitas' brother and a slave hunter is looking for John to return him to Rome but Vitas convinces him to help him on his journey to Caesarea and Jerusalem to find out just what his saviors hope he can accomplish to rid the empire of an insane monarch.

This second book in The Last Disciple's series is an exciting thriller as Vitas tries to stay one step ahead of his enemies while trying to figure out what role he is to play in toppling Nero from the throne. The authors have done such a good job of historical research that the audience will feel like they actually witness the events that occur in the novel. Thus readers will find this book so educational and entertaining they will finish it in one sitting.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read either for fiction enjoyment or eschatology debate 18 Nov. 2005
By Michael Ruangnol - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I am not writing a review about the events in the story, just go and read it. First, Tim F. LaHaye probably can't handle debates about his attack on this book or series. It great that the same publishers produce both sides of the debate. I think it's great for the Christian church and if he thinks that this position( Partial Preterist view) is not biblical he shouldn't be acting the way he has. He can comment and give is disagreements but not misrepresent Hank.
Second, This book does a great job in continuing the story of the Last Disciple. The story is great and gripping. I can't wait till the next one is out. It teachs you on how the first century Christian might have had view and use the book of Revelation in the first century. Even if you disagree with it, you have to wonder how the Christian responsed to the book of Revelation. How was it relevant to them? We do it now and all Christian have done it through out history.
It's great for the debate and if your a futurist and you think you might not like it, just pick it up and read it as what might have happen in 1st century. I have watch all the left behind movies and planning to watch the new one even though I disagree with it it's still can be view as great Christian entertanment.

Good work..

3.0 out of 5 stars New ideas are always welcome 27 Dec. 2006
By K. Carson - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Last Sacrifice is the second book in the Last Disciple series (currently only two books in the series). It most definitely challenges the belief held by the majority of Christians that the antichrist has yet to come and that all end time prophecies will be fulfilled in the future. In this series, it is basing the idea off the fact that many of the end time prophecies were fulfilled during Nero's reign. The section at the end of each book helps their belief and I would suggest reading it first before starting the novel itself.

My critique on this book is much like it was for The Last Disciple in that the story line itself is very interesting and the way the authors include so much detail about Jerusalem, the Roman empire, and the culture of that time period is amazing and that alone might make this novel worth reading. The writing style itself though tends to make me want to shy away from recommending this book to others though. I forced myself through it but often wanted to just quit and move on to something more entertaining. The reason for this is the way the writers jump back and forth between story lines and they enter and exit characters with no introduction or notice.

The Last Sacrifice is written better than the Last Disciple in that it tries to stick to one story line for a few chapters and then it drops it for a long time much to my disapointment...guess you can't have it both ways.

My only other complaint for the Last Disciple series is this, the Last Sacrifice has an ending that has to lead into another book in the series, yet in all my research I could not find out when the next novel will be released!!! It is one thing to have a cliffhanger and be anxious to read the next but know you have to wait 6 months, it is another to not even know if they will publish the next novel. That is another reason I am not sure I would ever recommend this book to anybody else at least until the series is closer to being complete.

4.0 out of 5 stars History, drama, tension, character development and theology; Great read! 10 Aug. 2006
By Tom Moser - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It was a brutal time with brutal people living by the sword. Brouwer and Hanegraaff capture what it must have been like for first century Christians during the tribulation. Every chapter ends with tension as they develop a story line of events in Rome, Alexandria and Jerusalem. I read the first book in the series, Last Disciple, (and enjoyed it more) and this book takes up where that book left off. If you are a student of the Bible you have to be impressed with the careful research and how the story line tracks with scripture.

If you don't understand Preterism, this book is a fun place to start. If you want another view of Revelation, this book will give you something to think about. And, if you assume the Left Behind series is the only interpretation of Revelation, this book is a must read.

I did not give Last Sacrifice five stars because the authors spend too much time repeating what happened in the first book of the series. At some points the drama became tedious, but I very much enjoyed both books in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally the correct form of eschaetology 17 Dec. 2005
By The Great Alexander - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Before I begin my review, I would like to say a few words concerning Kevin M. Newby's negative review on this book. In his ignorance and stupidity, he go's a thousand feet off the deep end in saying that this book is not scripture-based and that it is no more than "a fiction book that you would find in Borders." My dear brothers and sisters, for your sake do not listen to him. He says to read the Bible for what it really means, when he himself does not. Anyways, this book is amazing! After reading all 13 books in the left behind series, and then when reading The Last Disciple and The Last Sacrifice I came to conclusions that The Last Disciple series is way more scripture based then the Left Behind series. Interesting fact: the Left Behind series does not have one scripture concerning end times which leaves his entire series inaccurate, inconsistant, and most of all unreliable. Not so with the Last Disciple series: Hank Hanegraaff explains it accurately and precisely so that you would understand it. Don't miss out, or you will regret it.
