Publisher's Summary

The world is on the brink.

It was the last peace, the great peace, the deep breath before the storm. The Golden Age was closing and the heavens paused and waited for the long plunge ahead. Some people saw it coming. But they were few.

The first episode of this geopolitical thriller sets up the start of an epic battle between Light and Darkness. Taking listeners from Saudi Arabia to Israel to Washington, D.C., and Chicago, Wrath & Righteousness is a frightening, torn-from-the-headlines peek into the future.

The forces of Darkness, personified by a mysterious old man, have focused their efforts on a Saudi Prince who is second in line to the Royal House of Saud. By tempting the Prince with power beyond his wildest imagination, Lucifer and his servants have secured all of the pieces necessary to unleash Armageddon, turn allies against each other, and bring down the West. Freedom's only chance for survival rests with a group of people who do not even know they've been chosen for the job.

More than a simple techno-thriller, Wrath & Righteousness examines the eternal battle between Good and Evil while also asking one of the fundamental questions of our existence: What is mankind's relationship to the spiritual world? Packed with thrilling action and underscored by a timeless story of war, love and spirituality, Wrath & Righteousness has been described by number one best-selling author Glenn Beck as "The Left Behind series for a new generation."

Wrath & Righteousness is a 10-episode series by Chris Stewart, a world-record-setting Air Force pilot (fastest nonstop flight around the world) and New York Times best-selling author of several books, including The Miracle of Freedom. This series was adapted and updated from the previously published The Great and Terrible series that was released from 2003-2008.

chilling

very long but well worth the listen. This story is a frightening look at a very possible future for our country. While bleak in parts, joy and hope are also woven throughout,

i would mention that there is a heavy amount of Mormon doctrine in the last third of the book. It influences the storyline, but didnt bother me.i didnt read it for the religious aspect. i was able to recognize what was Mormon doctrine and chose to overlook that aspect.

i really enjoyed the story and the narration.

Excellent!!!!

One of the better audio books I've listened to. A really good story about a devastating attack on the United States and the never ending fight between good and evil. In a small thread that extends throughout the book--A reminder that evil exists and is closer than we think. The greatest deception of Satan was to convince men that he doesn't exist. This book reminds you that he does and he plays a role in the world as an active participant.

INCREDIBLE BOOK IN EVERY WAY!

Where does Wrath & Righteousness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the most incredible book that I have ever listened to! Absolutely spell-binding! It's as if this book was written from the headlines. I was listening to this when the terror attack was perpetrated on Paris, and I told my husband that it's like the author had their play book. I believe these things are happening right now in the USA as well as world-wide, which makes listening to this very enlightening, but sobering. Besides the great story and fabulous narrator, it is a wonderful value for your money. For 1 credit I got over 52 hrs listening time! I never wanted it to end! The main characters became a part of my family! If you are looking for something that uses vulgar language, graphic violence and uncouth sexual content, this book is not for you! This is a very moral and Godly book.

What other book might you compare Wrath & Righteousness to and why?

299 Days, Days of Noah, American Exit Strategy

Have you listened to any of Brian Troxell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I certain will look for him as a narrator when searching for new listens. He is incredible in every way!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I had many extreme reactions while listening to this book! It stirred every emotion in a good way. It will make you want to do something to change things.

one of the dumbest stories

you will love this book if you maintain a particularly narrow Christian view - where the world works by, supposedly, immensely powerful beings, whose only actual power is whispering, to which people, who are like puppets or zombies, respond. This is a world where everyone is hearing voices and acting on feelings. its a Christian romance novel where people gain a deep and accurate understanding of another motives, desires, and future actions. God loves everyone but he especially loves the American military and special forces. The US Constitution is one of his particular loves . The writing is juvenile. If you read it as a cartoon it is more palatable.

Great read

This book kept me up, it excited me, made me tear up, made me think, and a host of other things. The character development is so well done I made some new friends. When recommending it I described it as, Frank Peretti meets Tom Clancy. Well worth the time to read.

Awesome!!

What made the experience of listening to Wrath & Righteousness the most enjoyable?

It is very rare that I write a review but this book is exceptional. Captivating from its beginning I can only say this is by far the best book I have encountered this year. I am going to pass word along.....This one should not be missed.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wrath & Righteousness?

Too many memorable to mention a single as good vs evil in a battle for power and control in the lives of people, government and countries.

What about Brian Troxell’s performance did you like?

The performance was great!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book made me cry 4 different times sometimes with sadness and other with joy.

Any additional comments?

Please don't miss this book.

Compelling!<br />

Unable to unplug, dragged chapter through chapter.
The world requiring my attention and I reluctantly surrendering to my responsibilities requiring me to unplug from this audio book, yet waiting for the first opportunity to reengage.
The greatest question always being asked "How would you respond?" "Could you be that courageous?"
Would you listen to that spirit that calls to each of us, Or will you call on the Holy Spirit and open the door for he is there wanting, waiting to help when and if you call.
History, the world as it is, the technology that is out there now. This book brings the American story and shows a future that is very possible, yet it reminds us of what makes a free people different from a serf.
Love the Lord God with all your heart and soul.
Love your neighbor as thy self.

Thank you for the great book and and great narration.

Long, painful, unimaginative religious claptrap

What would have made Wrath & Righteousness better?

Lose the simple solutions religion offers and spend some time understanding people and how they function.
A sanctimonious, right-wing, Christian soldier is probably not the best person to write a good apocalyptic novel.

Has Wrath & Righteousness put you off other books in this genre?

First I would need to define the genre but definitely nothing Chris Stewart. It was painful.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I'm not even sure he himself believed this. He should not try top speak in female voices.

What character would you cut from Wrath & Righteousness?

All the good guys and the bad guys and the storyline. Not sure I would have much left if I started chopping away at this 54-hour long novel filled with superfluous, pointless, predictable, badly written bits.

Any additional comments?

Of course if you are a religious person and need to feel incredibly lucky to be one, go ahead and read it, it will make you feel very good about yourself.
