An eminent archaeologist discovers the Original Book of Daniel in Qumran. With it he finds a gold plate which he eventually discovers to be ‘ The book of Life’ sealed up, at the express command of God, by the Prophet Daniel in 600BC. Against a series of Climatic and natural disasters on a global scale, based on actual events , and fulfilling Daniels Biblical Prophecies, the hero finds himself and his associates battling to retain possession of the book . The book carries the names of the Elect, those who will be saved from the approaching apocalypse. With all the major powers involved ,Angels ,on both sides, are forced to reveal their agendas, as do Church powers and Secret societies. All wanting the book and each with their own reasons.
The Agencies I have used in the sub plot are actual Government and private organizations and all the information and detailed scientific references are based closely on actual events, following several recent climatic cataclysms and geological disasters. Currently in the case of N.A.S.A Who have just issued a warning of the largest Solar Storm ever to hit Earth.
The novel is obviously fictional but where possible I have utilized real events and actual governmental responses albeit greatly exaggerated for the purposes of the story.
