Similar to the Left Behind series, the rapture has occurred and millions of people have disappeared in the blink of an eye. The non-Christians (of the sinners) are the only ones that remain on Earth, as the Antichrist reign of terror is about to begin.
Mark of Evil centers on Ethan March, who has now become a Christian after the rapture. Ethan, along with Jimmy Louder, Rivka Reuban and other believers are hiding from the Global Alliance Police, whom are under the influence of the Antichrist.
This is unlike the world we have known, there are now BID-Tag implants in people, robotic police units and flying drone-bots, in which all of these things are used to stop the believers from spreading God's message to others.
Ethan and the rest of the believers know that they can't stop the Antichrist, as everything is foretold in the Bible, but what they can do is help the spread the message of God to others.
Mark of Evil is a fast-paced intelligent Biblical thriller that is set in our not-too-distant future. Some readers may avoid the series as it is a Christian novel, but Mark of Evil is a science-fiction, action adventure that I'm sure many Christian and non-Christian readers will enjoy. Overall, I enjoyed reading Mark of Evil.
*Disclaimer - I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
This book takes up where the last one ended, after the Rapture has taken place. It deals with Christians being hunted down and the rise of the anti-Christ.
The book is both entertaining and scary. Obviously, no one knows what it is going to be like during the tribulation, other than what we know from the Biblical account, but the authors describe some very scary scenarios that are very possible with our modern technology. Things like bar codes imbedded in people, and drones programmed to hunt down and kill anyone who doesn't have the mark on them.
Books like these should do more than entertain, and it does. It serves as a warning that we need to be ready. I'm not a big proponent of people becoming Christians after the Rapture. Lahaye is. Maybe he is right, and maybe he is wrong. Regardless, books like these give scary enough scenarios that it makes one not want to be around for them, regardless if one can become a Christian or not.
I highly recommend this book, though the series should be read in order.
Mark of Evil lays out the fictional underground church in many nations that has joined the Global Alliance group. The United States is not one of the participants and is under the leadership of a man named Colliquin whose sole desire is to be The One people look to. Colliquin has hired many workers to reprogram those who have the tag under their skin and also has plans to overtake the internet worldwide. Readers will be able to tell whose side this fictional player works for and it isn’t good; in fact, it is downright evil.
Ethan March was chosen to head the group Joshua Jordan had founded and operated. He had left behind a series of video messages for his predecessor to lead him through the Tribulation time. The threat on Ethan’s life is never-ending and he is always trying to stay one step ahead of the Global Alliance. There are others who desire to advance the kingdom of God as well as those who wish to destroy it completely.
Toward the end of the novel, the pace of the action gains speed along with an increase in the level of tension. There are many characters that are operating underneath the radar of the evil one in order to avoid capture and torture. Some are caught and killed, others are given knowledge and supernatural guidance in escaping, but the audience will be caught up trying to figure out who will or will not escape.
There is an aspect of the hope that the gospel brings throughout the book, which is great. There is also a budding romance that began in the third novel of this series and continues here. Although I enjoyed reading the book, I think the first two were the best of all four, but don’t pass up reading a good suspense novel!
Authors: Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall
"Your holographic image will appear to every person on the planet, wherever they happen to be situated - in deserts, cities, jungles, or on a mountain top. Our global GPS locator will target each of them via their BIDTag laser implants," Colliquin is assured in Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall's novel, Mark of Evil.
The fourth and final book in the End Series, this four hundred and fourteen page hardbound book targets those interested in the end times, after the Rapture has occurred and the Tribulation is in full swing. With no profanity or overtly sexual scenes, the violence and torture would make it unsuitable for immature readers. The New American Standard Bible is used mainly along with the New International Version.
In this tome, Ethan March has become the leader of the Jesus Remnant in its quest to resist the Global Alliance, run by Romanian Alexander Colliquin. Publicizing that the huge amount of Christians did not disappear and were involved in a planned mass suicide in remote areas around the globe, the Alliance is on track to take over world domination.
Working again with the beautiful Rivka Reuban, a former Israeli spy, Ethan and his team of underground connections plan to expose the altered video tape of the missing Christians while they try to arrange a rogue computer network to survive.
Refusing the international BIDTag identification, the nontaggers find ways to get around the drone-bots, cop-bots, and AllView devices to stay alive. Having inside sources in the Alliance's digital imagery organization, they keep track of the seven smart cards that control the world's internet and worldwide web.
With all countries except for America, Canada, and England agreeing to Colliquin's plan of complete allegiance, the Remnant must stay one step ahead of the new laws and regulations. When the Two Witnesses in Israel arrive on the scene, God's power is proven as more are converted to Christ.
Based on only the first half of the Tribulation from Revelation, a strong Christian-based America exists with hope to defeat the Alliance. As more people realize Christ is the only answer, the stage is set for the Lord's upcoming battle against the Anti-Christ and Satan.
As a lengthy read, flipping chapters from Hong Kong, the Yukon, New Babylon, Iraq, to Utah and others may often confuse readers. A listing of the myriad of characters at the beginning of the book would aid immensely.
