Can a nineteen year old stay true to the faith he was brought up on when he's under the spotlight?

Timothy Phillips dreams come true when he's discovered by the producer of a national talent show. So what's the problem? The recording contract is not in the Southern Gospel he would prefer to sing. As he begins recording and performing the music, he encounters increasing hostility towards Christians. Can he stay true to his faith, or will he end up compromising his beliefs little by little the more famous he becomes?

When his world comes crashing down, will he have anything left to help him stand as the end times approach?

 The fifth novel of seven in the Christian fiction series, The End Times Saga.

In the book, after the rapture occurs, Michael Evans introduces the man who becomes the world leader. The new leader, calling himself the Patriarch and renaming the United Nations to the Union of United Earth, consolidates his power and moves the new world capital to the city of Babylon in Iraq. The Patriarch divides the world into ten administrative regions and has ten men administer those regions for him. Next, he appoints a world-renowned prosperity gospel preacher as the new High Priest for the global religion.

During the first three and a half years, the Patriarch reorganizes the world economy, the High Priest creates a loyalty mark for people to take to show their loyalty to the Union, and then disasters begin occurring as predicted in the Bible. The first trumpet announces hail and fire mixed with blood, which kills 1/3 of plant life. The second announces a great mountain, an asteroid, burning with fire from space that's hurled into the sea, where it kills 1/3 of ocean life. The third is a comet that turns 1/3 of the waters bitter. The fourth extinguishes 1/3 of the light from the sun, moon, and the stars. The fifth signals those that aren't sealed by God are harmed by demon-possessed "locusts." With the sixth, World War III occurs. The seventh will be in the next novel, highlighting the next three and a half years.

As they deal with these challenges, the characters also put up with two witnesses who arrive in Jerusalem preaching the Gospel -- and warning of the beast and his false prophet. As the Patriarch deals with the disasters, the witnesses, and the Jews in Israel, the world moves closer to the middle of the Tribulation, where the Patriarch's life will change and judgments begin to ramp up.

An epic tale of evil and rescue, betrayal and love, and a terrorist threat unlike anything the human race has ever known.

Ted Dekker’s bestselling and most beloved series—together in one volume.

It's the story of a man named Thomas Hunter, an unlikely hero who finds himself pulled between two worlds. In our reality, he works in a coffee house. In the other, he becomes a battle-scarred general leading a band of followers known as the Circle. Every time he falls asleep in one reality, he wakes in the other. The fate of both worlds now rests on his ability to shift realities through his dreams—and somehow, find a way to change history.

Four novels. Two Worlds. One Story.

Praise for the Circle series:

“Put simply: it’s a brilliant, dangerous idea. And we need more dangerous ideas . . . Dekker’s trilogy is a mythical epic, with a vast, predetermined plot and a scope of staggering proportions . . . Black is one of those books that will make you thankful that you know how to read. If you love a good story, and don’t mind suspending a little healthy disbelief, Black will keep you utterly enthralled from beginning to . . . well, cliffhanger. Red can’t get here fast enough.” —FuseMagazine.net

“As a producer of movies filled with incredible worlds and heroic characters, I have high standards for the fiction I read. Ted Dekker’s novels deliver big with mind-blowing, plot-twisting page-turners. Fair warning—this trilogy will draw you in at a breakneck pace and never let up. Cancel all plans before you start because you won’t be able to stop once you enter Black.” —RALPH WINTER, Producer—X-Men, X2: X-Men United, Planet of the Apes, Executive Producer—StarTrek V: Final Frontier

“Black has to be the read of the year! A powerful, thought-provoking, edge-of-your-seat thriller of epic proportions that offers great depth and insight into the forces around us.” —JOE GOODMAN, film producer, Namesake Entertainment
