Three individuals from three continents find their lives merged in a single divine purpose: to win the last unreached people group on earth and usher in the Second Coming of Christ. They must succeed in order to fulfill the trigger for the return of the Lamb as declared in Mt. 24:14.
In their way stands the legion of demonic principalities intent on destroying the plan. Against the backdrop of unprecedented persecution and the onslaught of cataclysmic events, Pastor Josh must remain steadfast to carry out the priority revealed to him by God. He now realizes that no believer will escape the greatest tribulation in human history and that only the matchless return of the King can deliver mankind from evil’s reign.
The climactic battle between Good and Evil unfolds as Lucifer executes his definitive act of defiance: the global genocide of all Christians. With the sound of the trumpets reverberating throughout the heavens, what has been set in motion must now complete its course. Eternity and the fate of the earth are at stake.

I found Hon Hoh’s book, The Trigger, very captivating from the onset. The action was unrelenting between the physical and the spiritual realms up to the very end of the book. Since I read this book in different sittings, I had to remind myself that the Tribulation wasn’t actually transpiring when I took a break. It is that intense! The Tribulation will come to pass; I’m just not convinced it will be as described in this book. But for a different perspective on the Tribulation timetable, you would definitely find this book interesting and action-packed!
Since we rarely see the invisible, we tend to forget the spiritual forces are out there. Hon Hoh makes it vital to understand that we must do spiritual warfare in the different areas of our lives and our world.
I did find one major Scripture passage that did not correlate to the Bible, which I found disturbing. Though the book is Biblical historical fiction, the references, in my opinion, need to be accurate. My suggestion is to have your Bible handy when any references are noted in the book. The lack of information on the nation of Israel during this time is also disturbing.
