The two Beasts of the Revelation walked among us for nearly half a century, but no one knew them. Then millions of people simply Disappeared from the earth, and the Beasts decided to make themselves known. Can anything or anyone save the world –now that they have arisen? Daniel Goldman is among those who have tried for the past thirteen months to ignore the world-wide Disappearance. Consistent with his life-long commitment to rigid self-determination, he has pushed the matter out of mind and become even more fanatically focused on his work as an international investor. But on a Monday morning in late September events outside his control begin to chip away at his self-imposed ignorance. Everywhere he goes he finds himself hotly pursued and people wanting things from him he’d never contemplated. As he travels the globe negotiating the largest oil deal on the planet—and as an ancient empire gradually re-awakens—he meets and falls in love with a beautiful Israeli woman. She, together with her family and their rabbi, help Daniel discover he has never really been the “captain of his soul.” Instead, all his life unnoticed “voices” have guided him to a single decision with eternal consequences. The Biblical Apocalypse is upon them and, one way or another, Daniel is destined to play an important role in prophesied events. Voices is the first of a series about the end times—which refer to the end of our age, not to the end of the world. The series looks to the Bible for its framework and presents a plausible picture of the end times according to a literal reading of its prophecies.
