CRESTVIEW — Events following the rapture, a mysterious, end-of-times event when believing Christians will levitate to Heaven while non-believers stay grounded, take focus in a Crestview resident's latest book.

"The Morning After: The Messenger" is Paul T. Barnhill's second book, a fictional account of a man's journey following a biblical rapture. It raises numerous questions, including how much time is left for life on this planet and how much longer a Christian has to make his or her choice for salvation or damnation.

"I read the Bible and this is what the Book of Revelation said to me," said Barnhill, who doesn't consider himself to be a biblical scholar or even particularly religious.

"I don't attend church like I should, but it doesn't mean I don't believe," he said.

Nevertheless, he said the book should serve as a cautionary tale to those not fully committed to Christianity.

"I would like to see it passed out to those who attend church for the first time," Barnhill said.
