Publisher's Summary

The Origin Story of the Book of Revelation 

What in the world was going on when John had his visions of apocalypse?   

Ancient Rome, AD 64. Alexander, a Jewish doctor loyal to Rome, has his life turned upside down when the evil emperor Nero Caesar launches a horrific persecution of Christians.    

When Nero discovers that an apostle has written a secret apocalypse about the end of the world, he orders a Roman warrior to hunt down the scroll, destroy it, and kill the author.   

But a bold Christian woman named Cassandra holds a dark secret that opens the door to a world of spiritual warfare they’re not ready to face.    

It will lead them to the holy city of Jerusalem and to the true meaning of the apocalypse.   

It will change their world forever. And yours.   

Tyrant: Rise of the Beast is Book 1 in the shocking controversial series Chronicles of the Apocalypse. It’s an edge-of-your-seat action-packed supernatural epic, written by Brian Godawa, respected Christian and best-selling Biblical author.   

Spiritual Warfare, Angels and Demons 

The human story is not the only one in the book of Revelation or in this series. Chronicles of the Apocalypse shows the evil plans of Satan and his fallen angels the Watchers masquerading as gods of the nations at war. This gang of demons is not going down easily.   

Extra bonus: Historical and Biblical Facts Behind the Fiction

When you buy this audiobook, you’ll get a PDF attachment of more than 100 pages of endnotes tied to the chapters.   

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Not reflective of previous books

First, let me say that I love this author, have re-read most of his books and anxiously await his new releases.

This book was a disappointment all the way up until the last 3 hours. Everything before that was long, boring, and easily forgotten.

I hope the next installment is better!

Tyrant

Awesome. Another classic by Brian Godawa. A good eye opener for one of the most misunderstood books in the Bible.
The only small section I did not particularly care for was Godawa's presentation of the 3 angel's attempt to capture Appollion before his decent to Tartarus. Godawa showed 2 of the 3 angels engaged in their silly rivalry and inattentive and that was part cause of them not capturing him. I could not wrap my mind around the fact that the evil one was stronger, swifter and far more focused than God's angels. But the book was an absolute classic; can't wait until Remnant comes to Audio books. Godawa is such an awesome narrator Great job!

VERY GOOD!

Everyone of Godawa's books are very interesting. I suggest starting at the beginning of the Chronicles of the Nephelim and follow the story all the way through.

Awesome &Amusing

As a messianic follower of the Bible,I found this book both amusing and allowable,in the sense of incorporating biblical and fiction,merging into a very well done integration of the Word of God and the imagination of the author. Well done Brian. Shalom

The Rise of the Beast: is this the only way to look at the End Times Scenario?

I have read Brian Godawa’s Old Testament series: The Chronicles of the Nephalim and enjoyed it. I was hoping that he would be just as meticulous in this series but I have a problem with some of the time factors in this work. He explained within the book about how the sevens in Revelation are to be taken , they are not just cyclical but all the prophecies of the Bible can be taken to be meaningful in the ways of happening in the past and present and future! The Word of God comes to those who are willing to hear with open ears and eyes as well as to those who are not into believing it’s accuracy.

Great info & better story

Really enjoyed this perspective on the “end times.” It has definitely given me something to think about and research further. But outside of that, the story itself is worth the listen. Very gripping, excellent characters & great to see them in the 1st century time period. Lastly, the author performs the narration and the retelling has far more life and accuracy versus a “performer” reading the book. Highly recommended.

Good enough for a first book.

I do not completely agree with the theology. However, story line is pretty good. Enjoy

It was alright

I like the story line. However I would have preferred a more conclusive ending. It left me hanging.
