The best Christian books about biblical prophecy in fiction format

Who am I?

I’ve always been fascinated by science fiction and by Biblical Scripture. That may seem dichotomous to some, but not to me. I have a passion for science and for Scripture because both bring understanding about our world from the microcosm to the macrocosm. My writings are a mixture of science and mystery with a science fiction feel and a Christian perspective. I like stories that show how truth arises even from the dark, confusing, and ambiguity of life to help one discover something about God they may not have considered before, and at the same time enjoy a fun, fast-paced, and exciting journey as they read.

What is my book about?

Kalem’s brother was taken by the king, and he wants to expose him as a fraud with steles he has discovered which implies the current king is not legitimate. Yet, Kalem falls in love with Angela, the person who is supposedly key to the stele prophecy fulfillment, but her devotion is to the current king.

Kalem must deal with his biased views and with his feelings for Angela to decide which prophecy is true.

Left Behind: A Novel of the Earth's Last Days

By Tim LaHaye, Jerry B. Jenkins,

Book cover of Left Behind: A Novel of the Earth's Last Days

Why this book?

This book was one of the first to provide a fictional storyline in the setting of a future time in history known in the Bible as the Tribulation Period and shows how God still works even through the darkest times. A great story that shows how evil can rule the world yet still cannot ultimately overcome truth and goodness.


Agents of the Apocalypse

By David Jeremiah,

Book cover of Agents of the Apocalypse

Why this book?

I found this book interesting from the perspective that it is almost the flip side of the book Left Behind. While Left Behind deals with the inner circle battling the evil world leader, this book is more about the people in the periphery who are not close to the action. It shows how the acts of the evil world leader affect the average person and reveals their view of what is taking place around them.


Transgression: A Time-Travel Suspense Novel

By R.S. Ingermanson,

Book cover of Transgression: A Time-Travel Suspense Novel

Why this book?

This novel has an interesting reveal on first-century history. Two people, one on purpose, one accidentally, leave the present age to be teleported back to first-century Jerusalem and cannot find a way to get back to their modern times. Much of the New Testament history is told up close and personal where the author makes you feel like an integral part of this time of history. I was enthralled and surprised by how words affected all my senses to such a degree. I found the storyline engrossing and made me feel as if I was there.


Fallen From Babel

By T.L Higley,

Book cover of Fallen From Babel

Why this book?

A man is teleported from modern times to ancient Babylon when he touches an artifact in a museum. While a lot of the Biblical narrative is not covered, it does allow one to really get a feel of what ancient Babylon would have been like and allows one to almost be a part of that culture. A truly intriguing storyline.


A Lever Long Enough

By Amy Deardon,

Book cover of A Lever Long Enough

Why this book?

I found this an intriguing story of time travel back to the first century. Some believe Jesus’ body was stolen from the tomb and his resurrection a hoax. A group of individuals go back in time to observe the theft so they can once and for all prove the fallibility of Christianity. The story has many interesting twists which hinder their plan.
