Apostasy Rising / Season 2 • Episode 1
The Apocalypse Is Now
The first story in the epic four-episode, binge-worthy story season told through full-length, complete novels with cliff-hangers that make you hunger for more!
The year is AD 2125. Apostasy has bloomed throughout Ichthus, the remnant of future Christianity. Solterra Republic has launched a campaign of state-sponsored persecution against the Church. And a newly formed Resistance searches for a strategy of survival while one of their leaders is nowhere to be found.
Then the unthinkable happens: a global catastrophe that feels eerily like the last of the Seven Seals from the Book of Revelation has just been opened—ushering in the events leading to the Great Tribulation.
But how, when the Church still remains on Earth and Christians across Solterra are fighting for the faith in an underground Resistance? And if the apocalypse has dawn, what is Ichthus to do about it?
Thrown into the fray are a cast of characters from all walks of life on a quest to answer one burning question: What is the average Christian to do when the final seal is opened and the seven trumpets of judgment are let loose?
Find out in the page-turning, thrilling follow-up season to Apostasy Rising that readers agree is “Great reading and relevant in today’s times”!

Best Selling Author
J. A. Bouma
J. A. Bouma believes nobody should have to read bad religious fiction—whether its cheesy plots with pat answers or misrepresentations of the Christian faith and the Bible. So he wants to do something about it by telling compelling, propulsive stories that thrill as much as inspire, while offering a dose of insight along the way.
When not putting fingers to keyboard, he loves vintage jazz vinyl, a glass of Malbec, and an epic read—preferably together. He lives in Grand Rapids with his wife, two kiddos, and rambunctious boxer-pug-terrier.
An ancient threat. A holy relic. A belief under siege.
The year is 2123. The Church is in crisis. The only hope for the future is retrieving the past.
A Reimagined Faith
What do you do when the faith you grew up with no longer makes sense?
The Order of Thaddeus series is a must read. It will not only excite and thrill you but give you something to think about and inspire you.”

A Reimagined Faith
Spritual Coming of Age
Written in the self-discovery style of Brian McLaren’s award-winning A New Kind of Christian and John Greene’s coming-of-age stories, with shades of such classics as C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity and John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, J. A. Bouma’s A Reimagined Faith is the first story in a fresh, insightful spiritual coming-of-age series for a new generation wondering if the Christianity they’ve always known offers more in these dynamic times. Drawing from his own spiritual journey as a young adult, Bouma writes a stirring fable of resonance and truth for those wrestling with deep questions of faith, life, and everything in between.
