Set in the first century, and based on the book of Revelation (the 'Last Disciple' refers to John), this book offers a different take on the Tribulation than the Left Behind series. I find it interesting that both series are published by Tyndale House, especially considering the Afterword.
That said, here are my thoughts: I felt this was a well written and intriguing book. However, there are so many characters and subplots that at times I (and this could just be me) was a bit challenged to keep it all straight. It well illustrates the excesses of ancient Rome and the abuse of power and corruption so common then. I appreciated the author's research and seeming understanding of the times.
I can recommend this book; however, I don't feel that it's one I would personally care to re-read over and over.
