Well, I've just written a book series on the Apocalypse, and it was quite a lot of work juggling eschatology and history and entertaining story. Mine is about the origin story of the book of Revelation (Chronicles of the Apocalypse). The problem with most interpretations of the last days, is that they are so much speculation that historically has always proven to be wrong. So I don't encourage it for that reason. My series is different in that I write about how the ancient Christians and Jews understood prophecy for their day. I'm probably not the right guy to ask because I reject the common viewpoint, so I don't care for any of them. I've written on the subject in some books, but I think that Christians spend so much time speculating about the future instead of working on the kingdom of God for the future. Sorry, I'm not much help here.(less)
Brian Godawa Not sure. I have ideas, but there are a couple other awesome books ahead of the line.

“Every story is informed by a worldview.”
Brian Godawa, Hollywood Worldviews: Watching Films with Wisdom and Discernment

“[It] could be argued that the favorite sin of Satan would not be vanity, as described in 'Devil's Advocate', or even unbelief in the existence of the devil, as described in 'The Usual Suspects,' but the imagining of a generic, Christless God. The very essence of the Christian faith centers on the identity of Jesus Christ as God's only begotten Son, who alone is the source of salvation and author of faith (Acts 4:12). So it stands to reason that Satan's favorite sin is the belief in a God without Jesus, because that is a god without atonement or redemption and that is what populates hell in the name of heaven.”
Brian Godawa, Hollywood Worldviews: Watching Films with Wisdom and Discernment

“Noah realized a truth about human society: not everyone wanted freedom. When a people willingly or unwillingly become wards of their rulers, they eventually lose their capacity for self-determination. Like helpless children, they actually prefer security in exchange for their freedom. Better the misery they know while being taken care of than the misery they do not know being freely accountable for their own actions. Noah pitied them. They had lost their souls.”
Brian Godawa, Noah Primeval
