Texte du rabat

Environmental destruction, global warming, the rise of radical Islam - these issues all reflect a bigger problem - one to do with the human person himself. In War in Heaven, Michael Berossa starts from an implicit biblical concept that underpins the Apocalypse: Man - despite his highest aspirations - eventually causes his own demise. It is simply the Edenic flaw, which God - by casting the rejected Man back into the field of mud from which he was made - has given Man ample time to reflect upon. Without God, the world of Man spirals out of control.

The Apocalypse describes a time when God's patience with Man will end. Floodgates of evil - currently held slightly ajar - will be swung open, and the final great Antichrist will appear. God will use him to quickly divide men into groups that are for or against his Messiah. Events begin with the fall of Jerusalem, continuing dramatically to Armageddon only a few years later. The World Age ends in a cosmic paroxysm in which life on Earth is ended and the Earth utterly altered. A new creation must ensue.

War in Heaven is a stylized commentary on the Christian Apocalypse. Berossa is unafraid to challenge entrenched Christian concepts, yet give a Christian message. Concept and symbol are unraveled to their core. The symbolic use of numbers is explained, and its role in emphasizing themes.

The Bible presents the future as a written historical document. This Age - and everything in it - are to be dispensed with. The Apocalypse declares to Mankind what God intends to do in the World, and how we must respond. Berossa's book - like the work it discusses - becomes a call for change, and helps the reader to identify whether he is on a path to life, or to extinction.
