Father Elijah
An Apocalypse


Book I: Seed


Pierced by a Sword

Michael D. O'Brien




Bud McFarlane, Jr.

Set at the end of this century, Father Elijah is an apocalyptic novel exploring the state of the modern world and religious scene by following the experiences of Fr. Elijah Schafer, a Carmelite priest on a secret mission for the Vatican which embroils him in a series of crises and subterfuges affecting the ultimate destiny of the Church. Father Elijah is a convert from Judaism, a survivor of the Holocaust, a man once powerful in Israel. For twenty years he has been "buried in the dark night of Carmel" on the mountain of the prophet Elijah. The Pope and the Cardinal Secretary of State call him out of obscurity and give him a task of the highest sensitivity: to penetrate into the inner circles of a man whom they believe may be the Antichrist. Their purpose is to call the Man of Sin to repentance, and thus to postpone the great tribulation long enough to preach the Gospel to the whole world. In this richly textured tale, Father Elijah crosses Europe and the middle East, moves through the echelons of world power, meets saints and sinners, presidents, judges, mystics, embattled Catholic journalists, faithful priests and a conspiracy of traitors within the very House of God. This is an apocalypse in the old literary sense and written in the light of Christian revelation. Father Elijah is an engaging, can't-put-it-down novel!

-- Midwest Book Review


A great monument of the Islamic faith crumbles to the ground in a freak earthquake, setting the stage for mankind’s entry into the next age; an apocalyptic time where right and wrong, love and indifference, and black and white fade into alternating shades of gray.

Fraternal twins, Jesse and Tobias, are born to a deeply troubled Marisha Chardin under the diabolical oversight of a man, known only as Luther, who possesses a darkened presence. Though seeing the fulfillment of his own desires in young Jesse, Luther eventually orchestrates the demise of each child as a world now devoid of hope moves on.

Out of the remote depths of Africa, enter into the arena a mysterious soul, Jimi T. Expo – musician, philosopher, and spiritual leader. Seemingly in a matter of weeks, this man (reverently dubbed the Mystic King) injects the world with a ray of hope – a needed dose of light. Utilizing the power of song, Jimi T. offers his message of peace, liberation, and a true heaven right here on earth to a global audience, all in preparation for our final stage of existence – the full assimilation of mankind into the Collective Soul of the universe.

With the rapid decay of organized religion, and a germane response manifested in The Way of Mystic Realism (a belief system based on relative spiritualism and social truths) the world is left to ponder the question: Is this man the Christ – the promised Messiah who has come to set humanity right? Or might he indeed have a darker purpose? One man, Nathan Page, steps into center stage; facing the maelstrom through the eyes of an agnostic, but with a heart perhaps somewhere else.

The scene has been set in an all-too-familiar, frighteningly contemporary time period. In the final analysis, will mankind choose good over evil? Or perhaps even worse, will he even be able to tell the difference?

To whom… or what… will dominion be granted?
