Twilight of the Church Age

Book one in the Tribulation Pilgrims’ Progress Series and a novel for today.

Two thousand years ago, the Church Age began at Pentecost, following the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  As we observe the events of today and notice the growing similarities to the End Times described in Bible prophecy, we can see the Church Age is growing dim.  The novel Twilight of the Church Age dramatizes these times and events.

In the last several months of the Church Age, a team of pastors works to create a resource to assist the people who will be left behind after the Rapture.  At the same time, political elites move to grab more power and wealth.  For most folks, it is business as usual.  They work, marry, raise children and party.  They do not see the coming peril, but God mercifully has provided a path to light, love and life.  None of these people realize that the End Times events are closer than they think.

Author’s note: A reviewer’s comment about the need for a resource like that described in this novel encouraged me to write Lifeline, A Guide to Surviving the End Times, an end times commentary and Bible study book.

Twilight of the Church Age introduces everyday people in Texas, Missouri and New Jersey, who just want to love and support their families, friends and communities.  But these are not ordinary times, they must also battle criminals, thwart human traffickers and survive a faltering economy.  Government grows more intrusive and oppressive.

At just the perfect moment, God will launch seven years of unimaginably great danger and torment that the Bible calls the “Tribulation.” This is God’s final call to nonbelievers, “Look, listen and believe, before it’s too late for you.” Ultimately, these events will lead to the final judgment and the eradication of sin from the earth.

Before the Tribulation, Jesus will call all believers on the earth to join Him in the sky (this event is usually called the “Rapture”). They will witness the Tribulation from the safety of heaven. This event occurs “in the twinkling of an eye.” In the Tribulation Pilgrims’ Progress Series, this event is referred to as the “Great Surprise.” Some characters are called to heaven at the end of Twilight of the Church Age. Others are left behind on earth; is there any hope for them? 

The novel blends a dramatic story line, humorous parody and sound Bible teaching with the objectives of entertaining and educating readers and to encourage them to trust in Jesus for these perilous times.
