The Scariest Novel I Ever Read: Second Term

While some people are frightened by stories of vampires, natural disasters, alien beings, or zombies, I find the scariest stories are those tales that sound as if they could actually happen. Second Term is just such a story. For those like me, who value freedom above life itself, this book was a terrifying trip down a timeline that is not impossible to imagine in America today. What if a president took executive power to a whole new level and eliminated all opposition (through murder, if necessary?) What if nobody could stop him, including the most savvy politicians and the most experienced military minds of the day?

The author, John Price, is an attorney and a Bible scholar. He no longer lives in the United States because of conclusions he reached while researching his nonfiction book, The End of America, a study of Biblical end times prophecies. Second Term, however, is a work of fiction, the first volume in what is now a completed trilogy. The characters, while fictional, will sound strangely familiar to many readers. The situations are unfortunately believable and the plot twists are utterly terrifying.

If you like to read thrillers full of political intrigue, terrorism, and heroism, read Second Term. And if the scenario sounds plausible, consider doing some preparations and working hard to prevent such an end.

Volume 1 in the Second Term series sets the stage for a showdown that could mean the end of America as we know it. Can anyone stop the events that are set in motion? Can no one stop the president?


Where Does the Bible Fit into the Story?

Is Nuclear War Part of Prophecy?

One of Price's characters lays out a case for America being the "Daughter of Babylon" in Bible prophecy. He lays out a detailed argument for America, rather than a rebuilt ancient Babylon, as the nation who spreads her sin through the entire earth, has superpower status in the world, will persecute God's people, will break a treaty with Israel, and will be utterly destroyed even before the tribulation and Armageddon occur. The implications if that claim is true are more frightening than any Halloween movie ever made. How could a great nation be destroyed in a moment?

Price wrote a nonfiction book laying out this case: The End of America. Whether you share his beliefs about Biblical eschatology (the study of the end times) or not, his fictional characters will draw you into their stories and compel you to read to the end.

      I try not to read fiction that will cause me to live fearfully.

      I read "The Marketing of Evil" by David Kupelian and it really scared me. It's non-fiction and the fact that the things he reports are true are very disheartening. I fear for our great country.
