The Scriptures

by Dekker Green

It is the end of days. A nuclear strike hits New York. Alfie, a young black male, survives but with no memory of what has happened. The only thing he can remember with any clarity is how to play his guitar and a few snatches of old blues and folk songs.

Another survivor, Meg, has taken refuge in the hills of Vermont, and she, too, is the victim of near absolute amnesia. Her only hope is to survive these darkest of days. Across the country, a prophet called John is reveling in the fallout of chaos that accompanies the strike and is calling for Judgment Day against sinners, all while civilization burns around him. This is the final battle. Alfie and Meg don’t know it, but they have a grim destiny. They must stand together and defeat the Great Beast with only their faith to shield them. Can they build a New Jerusalem from the ruins of the White House?

Dekker Greeen spent most of his early life in South Africa, where he witnessed the horrors of apartheid and realized he needed to be the change he wanted to see in the world. He campaigned against injustice for the majority of his youth. He bought the shell of a Ducati Monster in his twenties and rebuilt it before driving it around the world, seeking whatever caught his interest and fired his imagination. He spent the last few years of his twenties in Israel, where he studied the military martial art of Krav Maga under Imi Lichenfeld’s tutelage. Dekker Greeen has been a ghost since the turn of the millennium, living off the grid and offering his skills to people in need.
