Ichthus Chronicles

Apocalypse Rising / Season 2 • Episode 4

The Apocalypse Is Now

The final story in an epic four-episode, binge-worthy story season told through full-length, complete novels.

The year is AD 2125. End time events have risen to a fevered pitch of catastrophic mayhem—forcing Christians to make sense of the Great Tribulation and confront a new normal that threatens it all.

Then the unthinkable happens. Something foretold but all-together unbelievable.

A paranormal power is unleashed with the Sixth Trumpet that promises something far more sinister and terrifying than has ever visited Earth. Something mysterious, something ancient that has remained in the shadows of biblical memory from the dawn of time.

An alien demonic force ratcheting the stakes to a mind-blowing degree.

Which not only anticipates the coming Antichrist and its horror. But also threatens all that one faithful Remnant holds dear—putting everything on the line and revealing just how eternally threatening the stakes really are.

Alexander Zarruq and John Mark Ford must uncover the mystery and retrieve the Church’s suffering memory if Ichthus and Solterra has any chance of survival. But forces far more dangerous and powerful than the Church has faced stand in the way. And when the Republic does something no one expected—all seems lost.

Will the Ichthus Remnant succeed in retrieving what the Church needs to survive the Great Tribulation and save the world from an eternal, hellish fate?

Devour the final episode to find out in the epic follow-up season to the celebrated Apostasy Rising that readers agree is “Great reading and relevant in today’s times”! Then get ready in 2022 for Antichrist Rising—the thrilling Season 3 conclusion that ushers in Christ’s glorious return.


Ichthus Chronicles is an explosively inventive series that recasts the Christian struggle in a future world rife with social and religious challenges combined with technological and political change that feels close to home—inviting readers to experience the sacrifices and struggles to persevere unto victory in the face of hostile forces, both in the future and the past.

Not since the blockbuster Left Behind series has a story captured the heart of the Church’s mission in these last days—offering a unique, page-turning adventure that not only entertains through thrilling action and mysterious suspense, but captures the urgency of our own day and inspires for the journey of faith.

Finish the adventure of the final episode in the epic 4-part series by bestselling author J. A. Bouma about the future Church under siege.

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.

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.
