The Christ Clone of course turns out to be, not the
incarnation of Christ, but the incarnation of the Anti-Christ, who
counterfeits the miracles and outward piety of the original Jesus of
Nazareth. His name is Christopher, so named not after Christ, but after
Christopher Columbus whom the surrogate father/scientist sees as the
founder of the New World in the hopes that this miracle boy will walk in
the same path.
The Christ Clone Trilogy’s second and third books, "Birth of An
Age" and "Acts of God," follows the rise of Christopher
through the United Nations, an organization that the writer is an obvious
expert on. The behind the scenes political intrigue in the UN Security
Council is reminiscent of today’s headlines. Even though this was
written before the war with Iraq, France was pegged as an opposer of
progress and Iraq as a big problem for peace.
There are so many twists and turns in this book that you won’t find
in other end-times scenarios. The rapture of the church is not the great
disappearance as seen in other prophecy fiction, but is called "The
Disaster," when millions of people die for no apparent reason.
BeauSeigneur also parts from traditional eschatology with his portrayal of
the two witnesses from the book of Revelation. One of those men turns out
to be a 2,000 year-old man from the New Testament -- the Apostle John --
of whom Christ had told Peter, "If I will that he remain till I come,
what is that you you?" (Jn 21:22).
The Anti-Christ becomes so believable in his rhetoric against true
Christianity that the author inserted footnotes after his speeches warning
the reader to keep in mind who is doing the talking. And the other
personalities in this book are equally believable, especially Decker
Hawthorne who ends up raising little Christopher when his surrogate
parents are killed in a plane crash during "the Disaster." The
reader identifies with Decker who is the real star of the Trilogy.
What makes this novel more gripping than others in the Christian
End-Times genre is that it does not read preachy with gospel messages. A
non-believer could enjoy The Christ Clone Trilogy without getting the
impression that it’s a ruse to sneak in the Gospel. Yet at the same time
the reader will be left with the impression that Bible prophecies of the
latter days are credible and today’s world events testify of Bible
