The settled belief among Christians today is that the world and life as we know it are temporary. Just as there was a beginning there also must be an end. A Place in the Woods speculates that we are now living in those times—that the actual end of civilization is near and may come within our lifetime. Most scholars agree that the end will involve a devastating clash between God and Satan where civilization will be caught up in the shattering effects with widespread death and destruction.
A Place in the Woods follows the lives of three couples as they navigate through that apocalyptic age. The book, just as its characters is fiction but the events depicted are based on an interpretation of actual Biblical prophecy.
