Default Writing a story about the end of the world

.....as detailed in the Bible.


Basic plot idea so far:

Quote:
A young Christian at a party witnesses the Rapture, but is not taken to heaven. Furious, he renounces God and struggles to survive against the Demonic forces of Hell assault Earth.

Several years later, he is contacted by an angelic messenger rallying so-called "angels on Earth" for the final battle with the antichrist.

I'm thinking of writing it in 7 "sub-books", each one around 3-5 chapters each, each representing a seal of the apocalypse.


What do you think? Ideas? Would you read it?

Death Korps W1 T0 L1

Dark Elves W0 T0 L0

Basically, I'm taking the premise from the Bible and giving it a modern-day fantasy twist. Think Angels with Holy Shotguns.
