The ancient prophecies are true, and the unthinkable is about to happen. Israel and America are targets of radical Islamic terrorists armed with tactical nuclear weapons. They are bent on nothing less than the complete destruction of their enemies. Who will sound the warning, and who will listen?
The prophet Ezekiel was never taken seriously when he predicted the destruction of Israel's enemies, but unfortunately he was right. The truth of Ezekiel's words will soon be felt by the entire modern world, and it seems chaos will reighn supreme. In the midst of the mayhem, small town preacher, Ty Dempsey, arises as the man who is able to connect the dots of current world events with the ancient prophecies of scripture. His discoveries are only the beginning of his troubles, and his adventures. Meanwhile, Israeli F-16 "Lightning" pilot, Moshe Eldan, is confronted with those same prophecies in his daily dealings with terrorists. Dempsey and Eldan will learn that they are part of a bigger plan. But they are not alone. This thriller provides a shocking answer to an age-old question: What would happen if the entire world turned against Israel? This fast-paced story is the first installment of an electrifying, award-winning, trilogy called The Lightning Chronicles. Vivid characters, startling agction, and an unexpected ending accompany this portrayal of last day events prophesied millenia ago. New York Times Bestselling Author, Robert Whitlow says of Distant Thunder: "Jimmy Root Jr. brings to life a story as relevant as tomorrow's newspaper, built on a foundation as ancient as a 2,500 year old prophecy. This fast-paced narrative brings the reader into a world of human intrigue and spiritual revelation."
