Mystery of Lawlessness

John Reed. 2010. Reasonable Hope Ministry, 565 pages.

This is the third and last in Dr. Reed’s trilogy that teaches about the Genesis Flood while offering an enthralling story. The previous books of the trilogy are The Coming Wrath, (a novel that makes the conditions before the Flood come to life), and Mabbul, (a story that takes place during the Flood). The Mystery of Lawlessness focuses in on the period about 100 years after the Flood on the Plains of Shinar. In this epic tale of adventure, the depths of man’s heart is unveiled. Evil is opposed by a few, but they must battle it within and without. From these struggles comes the ancient world, and two interwoven mysteries: the mystery of redemption and the mystery of lawlessness.
