Salem Kirban's two Best Sellers now in one volume! Sometime after the Rapture, the Antichrist will appear to rule the earth - first as a man of peace - then suddenly as a tyrant of terror! 666 is a novel which vividly captures events as they may occur during this Tribulation Period. I gave a copy of this to a former girlfriend 33 years ago. It's great to have my own copy of it again! A very interesting and thought-provoking read, and true to prophecy from the get-go.

Millennium is a 1983 science fiction novel by John Varley. Varley later turned this novel into the script for the 1989 film Millennium, both of which are based on Varley's short story "Air Raid", which was published in 1977. It was nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award in 1983, and for both the Hugo and Locus Awards in 1984. Millennium features a civilization that has dubbed itself "The Last Age".

I had read this as a child and enjoyed it very much... or rather, was fascinated by it, in that horrified way you can be about the End Times. While the author did his best to back up every claim with Scripture (which he included in the margins), he failed to give the story and real life or energy. For the glorious millennium described in Scripture, you would think that this would be a world of joy, but it felt like a flat, boring world with no real purpose.

_1000_ by Salem Kirban

This is a continuation of the author's book _666_: having read that book is helpful, but not absolutely required. _1000_ takes place in during the post-Apocalypse 1000 year reign of Jesus. Satan has been bound for this period, and the planet enjoys an unprecedented realm of peace and prosperity.

Many of the characters of _666_ re-appear in the sequel. There are a few new characters as well. Most important of these are Bart Malone and Esther Sanders, children born near the start of the Millennium.

Although one would think that everything would be perfect and wonderful in a world directly ruled by Jesus, there is still a streak of rebellion present, as some people start to chafe, and then protest certain things, such as some of God's judgments, or (of certain countries) having to send a delegation to Jerusalem every year. Bart in particular starts to question life in the Millennium, egged on by co-worker Phil Sutherland...or is there something more to Bart's restlessness?

It is interesting to compare this book with the more recent (by about 34 years) Kingdom Come, by Lahaye and Jenkins. In both books, people living in the Millennium are divided into what Kirban calls "Living Believers" ("naturals" in Kingdom Come) and "Resurrected Believers" ("Glorifieds"). Resurrected Believers are those who had been taken up in the Rapture, or martyred during the Tribulation, and have returned to earth after seven years in heaven.

The difference is that the "naturals" in _Kingdom Come_ do age, albeit very slowly, while the "Glorifieds" do not. No one ages in Kirban's book.

Only Living Believers have the capability (and desire?) to reproduce. Children of these unions are born with a sin nature and must make an affirmative choice to believe in Jesus in order to enjoy eternal life once the Millennium is over. In _Kingdom Come_ a person must make this choice by their 100th birthday or face death and damnation; there's no such time limit in _1000_, where one has the whole Millennium to decide which way to go.

It's apparently difficult to write a smooth narrative over 1000 years; most of the action in _1000_ takes place about 45-50 years into the Millennium, while that in _Kingdom Come_ is centered around 90-100 years or so into this time period. Then both books leap ahead to the last days of the Millennium, when Satan is let loose "for a little while" and the final rebellion takes place...

Kirban's book is certainly shorter; 185 pages (with illustrations) to Kingdom Come's 356. And it gets to the point faster; no he-said-she-said soap operas or condensed Bible stories here. (Bible verses apropos to the text are placed in the margins as a handy reference)

I personally found _1000_ more disturbing to read than the La Haye/Jenkins book, most likely because Kirban spends a lot of time having characters agonize over friends and loved ones who have ended up in Hades. And just about every chapter ends in a "cliffhanger"-type sentence foreboding doom.

Beyond that, some things in _1000_ are just bizarre. After the judgments, people doomed to Hades are loaded on buses? And Hades turns out to be a black hole in space? Hmmm...

If you are an aficionado of this type of literature, _1000_ may be worth seeking out.

Salem Kirban's only attempts at fiction, "666" and "1000" are not as finely polished as the "Left Behind" novels, but still very readable.
"1000" covers the period =after= the "Left Behind" series - and features George and his wife Helen (who is one of the ones taken in the Rapture). This book is one person's vision of the Millennium period after the Second Coming of Christ.
The parallels between these books and the "Left Behind" novels are very striking. The story starts on a airplane. The husband is "left behind" and the wife and children raptured. George is quickly catapulted into direct confrontation with the Anti-Christ and his minions.
But that's not all - if you can find one of the combination books you'll even be able to read about the millennium period and what might happen during that time. Kirban's position as a born-again Arab really shine through in places. Kirban is not a novelist, though ... There are many places where an editor might have caught the fact that Kirban switches between first person and third person perspective without warning. There are other editorial mistakes, but not enough to make me want to put this book down until I had read it through.
But I won't ruin the whole novel here - just recommend that if you like the "Left Behind" books that this is a "must read"!
