The Silence is Broken! reveals groundbreaking new insights into the prophecy of Ezekiel 38 and 39 and its relationship to the book of Revelation and Godís Day of the Lord judgments.

It offers a logical and systematic solution to the dilemma this prophecy poses for many readers of the Bible. Discover how and why the beginning of the End Times will be misinterpreted as the end of the Tribulation; how the War of Gog and Magog will be misunderstood as the War of Armageddon; and what that will mean for the nations of the world.

Douglas Berner was a career law enforcement officer with a background in Criminal Investigations and retired as a police Detective Sergeant. He has long held interests in unconventional warfare, the tactics of anti-terrorism, police S.W.A.T. team training, and edged weapons. Mr. Berner is a published author with one book and several articles on the subjects of edged weapons and law enforcement anti-terrorist technology.

Douglas studied geology and criminology at Florida State University and received B.S. degrees in both fields. He has no theological training but has been a student of the Bible and Bible prophecy for over 25 years. He expanded his interests in the Bible, geology, and archaeology by making four trips to Israel in the 1990ís, twice serving as a volunteer involved in archaeological research and field activities. He briefly lived in Israeli settlements in the West Bank during these archaeological trips.

During his years of study of Bible prophecy, he became struck by the great conflict and extreme differences between interpretations of the End Times by different scholars. He noticed that most study materials on Bible prophecy seem to focus on an interpretation of the Tribulation period Ė particularly the end of the Tribulation with an emphasis on the actions of the Antichrist, the Campaign of Armageddon and the second coming of Christ leading to the Millennial Kingdom. Aside from the arguments regarding the timing of the rapture of the Church, most scholars seem to place less emphasis on how the End Times begin. Too little emphasis seems to be placed upon Godís motivations and objectives for why and how God initiates the Day of the Lord.

Mr. Berner utilizes his background in criminal investigations to apply skills of criminal case analysis and the evaluation of criminal evidence to the study of Biblical Scripture and the examination of the End Times prophetic puzzle. He believes in utilizing a logic problem approach to solve some of the difficulties in understanding which biblical passages are or are not parallel passages of prophecy.
