“He is Nigh.”
“He is? Already? How”
When Aziraphale (Angel and part-time rare book dealer) and Crowley (an Angel who didn’t so much Fall as Saunter Vaguely Downwards) learn that the Antichrist has been born on present day Earth, they agree to work together to prevent the End of Days. Eleven years later, all bets are off when innocent Adam Young discovers he has the power to bring about Armageddon. As the stage is set for a showdown between the forces of Good and Evil, the prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch may yet come true...
