About "Postponing Armageddon"
The second coming of Jesus Christ was scheduled to occur in the thousandth year of His era—but it did not happen as foretold. In the year 1016, the long-lived thirteenth apostle, Matthias, set off as planned with twelve parchment scrolls inscribed by the apostles, believing that when they were read at Glastonbury Tor, history would be rewritten and the world would be restored to the glorious state originally envisioned by God. But the other ancient clans also knew that if the scrolls were ever put to use, they and their families would disappear, as if they had never existed, and so set off to stop him. What is the price they—and the rest of humanity—will pay for postponing Armageddon?
"Postponing Armageddon" has been assigned to Barking Rain Press staff editor Ti Locke. Publication for both the print and eBook formats of Postponing Armageddon is anticipated for Spring 2013. Interested readers can preview the first four chapters of "Postponing Armageddon" for free at the Barking Rain Press website.
