"I'll second the vote for the first cover. The second cover says "This is a peaceful, serene book about the apocalypse", but the first cover says "I'm going to be blowing stuff up", which is much better.
"Third Testament is good but taken. I'm wondering, though, that because this is part of a series, if you could use a taken title and still have it distinguished from the other books? If that's the case, then I'll throw in…"
"I don't like a stand-alone prepositional phrase as a title, but it would work great with a noun in front of it. I think a lot of great titles have used that form, like "The___ on the _____" or "The ____ of the ____".…"

Panhandle Humanists and Freethought Oasis welcome Recovering From Religion Executive Director Jerry DeWitt to speak on Embracing Identity Suicide: How an evangelical minister went from faith to freedom.
After more than 25 years of Pentecostal ministry, Jerry holds the distinction of being the first graduate of The Clergy Project, a private, invitation-only "safe house" community of current and former ministers who no longer hold the supernatural beliefs of their religious traditions. The Clergy Project was started by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, and former minister and author Dan Barker.
Bring a friend to hear Jerry speak in Amarillo, TX, on Thursday, February 16, from 7-9 pm at the Southwest Branch Amarillo Public Library, Meeting Room A, 6801 W 45th. Admission is free and open to the public; $10 suggested donation.
Panhandle Humanists hold twice monthly educational meetings that are free and open to the public. Our vision is to provide a nurturing, reliable, self-aware and self-understanding Humanist group, focused on active exploration of information and ideas, and tasks that positively benefit and impact humans. We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting! Visit our website for more details.
