For thousands of years people have been waiting for it - the last days, the millennium, the end. At last, a book that tells not when, but how it might happen.
In Israel, in the weathered cliffs by Qumran, near the spot where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in 1947, an American archaeologist named Kyle Shepherd, along with Maria Muir, a beautiful Jewish woman, discover a cave with another scroll, but with a message so powerful that the Mideast soon reels from its impact.
Eventually, the discovery of the scroll leads to a confrontation on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, and the whole world succumbs - armageddon, the apocalypse - with Israel fighting for its very existence. [publisher blurb]
