The Europa Conspiracy: Foreward: Fascinating, Captain
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!
So I figured, after being up to our ears in Paul Stepola and Kirk Cameron these past few months, that we could all use a little break.
So I’m going to be critiquing The Europa Conspiracy, by Tim LaHaye and Bob Phillips.
Yep, Michael Murphy is going to be a break from our past few “heroes.”
If there’s one thing we can always count on in this world, it’s Tim LaHaye’s infatuation with his own work:
In this fascinating book Murphy goes through hair-raising events to stave off the work of Talon (who may be the most vicious terrorist hit man in fiction history) and the Seven for whom he works.
My book is so fascinating! Buy it today!
Also, is it really possible to be a “terrorist hit man“? I mean, a terrorist kills to instill terror, and a hit man kills for money. Isn’t a hit man’s whole job to work for whomever pays him, regardless of what the boss’s goals are? You could be a terrorist and a hit man at the same time, I suppose, but not all the time. Otherwise, you would just be a terrorist.
As such, it’s kinda silly of LaHaye to call Talon “the most vicious terrorist hit man in fiction history.” So, taking each piece, I think we can all agree that Talon is neither the most vicious terrorist nor the most vicious hit man.
The dedication is “To all those whose study of Bible prophecy has made them anticipate the revival of the old Roman empire,” and LaHaye mentions said empire again in the Foreward. Yet another book about Daniel’s prophecies, this time with a focus on the European union. As those who have followed the Slacktivist know, unity and common purpose are Very Bad Things:
What these European leaders [who are cooperating with each other] do not realize is that they are playing right into the hands of evil conspirators out to take over the world, or at least, prepare for a world takeover predicted by the prophets of both the Old and New Testament.
Speaking of conspirators, then you write your book, you should always do your best not to sound like a fictional conspiracy theorist.
LaHaye is very into superlatives. He then calls the Seven “the most ruthless group ever assembled,” with only one man (the Antichrist, natch) “more evil than themselves.”
But it’s okay, everyone, because…
Fortunately for humanity, Murphy knows and is primed for action.
What a relief!
