Book Giveaway: Thunder of Heaven by Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall


Thunder of Heaven: A Joshua Jordan Novel (End Series, The)Like millions of others, I was really into Tim LaHaye's Biblical End Times Left Behind series in the mid 1990's.  While some may debate the details of Eschatology until the end of time itself, I found Left Behind to be entertaining and at least got me thinking about the issues presented to us in Revelation and other books of the Bible.

Last year Tim LaHaye returned to the genre with a new apocalyptic series, beginning with Edge of Apocalypse, co-written with Craig Parshall.  Now comes the second title in the collection, Thunder of Heaven.  Here is some information on this exciting new series:


Best-known for the Left Behind series, LaHaye and his co-author Parshall introduced readers to The End series with last year’s Edge of Apocalypse. Now, in Thunder of Heaven (Zondervan; on-sale June 28th), lead character Joshua Jordan is back. In an epic story ripped from the headlines of world events and filtered through Scriptural prophecy, Thunder of Heaven chronicles the earth-shattering events which eventually lead up to the Apocalypse foretold in Revelation. 

You can find out more about The End series by liking “Col. Joshua Jordan’s” Facebook profile and following “Jordan” on Twitter.


According to TV personality Glenn Beck, “Tim LaHaye’s books always entertain, educate and thrill, but Thunder of Heaven takes it to a new level.”

In addition, there have been a few video teasers produced for Thunder of Heaven that you might want to check out-- these trailers on YouTube have really piqued my interest!









Video #1
: Joshua Jordan at the White House, reporting to the "Round Table"
about thwarted terrorist attacks from al-Qaeda. 









Video #2
:  Joshua Jordan reports to the "Round Table" from Israel just outside Tel Aviv regarding potential conspiracy attacks against the US government.









Video #3
: Joshua Jordan reports to the "Round Table" from prison confirming the Iranians have weapons of mass destruction.


Sound interesting?  I'm going to be starting this series soon, but in the meantime AuthorsOnTheWeb.com has given me the opportunity to give away a copy of Thunder of Heaven to one reader!  Here are the contest rules:
