For example, the children were trained to carry grenades that they were indoctrinated to set off in the inevitable “End Times,” so they can translate themselves to heaven. The first suicide is a young frail boy, a true believer of nine, with three grenades strapped to his body.
Despite the gruesome madness of man, this is a story of hope. Copy from review of 2002 edition of this book (under different title):
"Father Will, leader of the apocalyptic Christian sect, has built a fortress and a prison inside a mountain honeycombed with caves and tunnels. With the aid of computer technology, he selects each new disciple carefully, transferring their wealth to his own accounts as he brings them into the fold. He also uses advanced programs to monitor his adversaries, making him a powerful and dangerous enemy. With the mesmerizing grace of a madman, Father Will leads his followers to destruction, planning to begin with the sacrifice of his own first-born son.
Author Jody Flosi debuts “the Deceivers series" with a gripping account of a mass suicide planned by the cult leader. Playwright Flosi lends this tale a fierce, convincing sense of drama as it enacts the dilemma faced by millions of people snared by cults today. Heroine Sophie’s chilling experience at Jonestown keeps the tension building as she relates that experience to the escalating dangers presented by Father Will. Secondary characters likewise present sympathetic and heart rendering contradictions, especially Maya who refuses to allow Father Will to wed her teen child, or to leave without her family. Father Will presents a dangerous brilliant manipulation of scripture in the midst of madness, preparing for an end of chillingly inevitable destruction. A work of burning hope in the midst of dark intent, FATAL PROPHECY comes very highly recommended.
