Voices - a Christian thriller by Steven Ira


What if the Bible’s prophesies about the end of our age turn out to be literally true?  What might it be like to live in those chaotic times?

On a late September morning a few years from now, Daniel Goldman, an American Jew, is about to find out.  He wakes to the audible voice of a man who has been gone from the earth for thirteen months, but that strange event soon becomes the least of his problems.  As a fabulously wealthy international investor, Daniel had always thought he had a worthy mission in life.  But over the next ten days, as he is drawn deeper and deeper into a cosmic agenda marked by intrigue and deception, he learns what was really expected of him all along.  

Since Voices is a novel, most of it is purely imaginary.  This is especially true of the characters.  With the exception of the two “Beasts,” Vicente Romani and Akiva Sharabani, the Bible has nothing at all to say about the individual characters in the story—and it has only a few key things to say about those two.

But it has more to say about the geopolitical backdrop in the period between the Rapture of the Church and the Second Advent of Christ, which is the setting of the novel.  The Biblical books of Daniel and the Revelation especially describe in great detail the conditions and circumstances of that time.  Yet even in this area the Bible allows wide latitude for imagination since it describes only the social and geopolitical essences of that time.

Accordingly, in Voices, the characters’ personal qualities are entirely fictional, while the setting and geopolitical backdrop are consistent with the essences of conditions and circumstances prophesied for the period.
