Not going to bother to enter all the pre-millennial doom-mongering books I read back in the day. This will have to stand pars pro toto. It says a lot about the genre that no amount of dis-confirmation prevented the author from issuing a series of updated versions. ( )

It dropped so low--in my Regard--
I heard it hit the Ground--
And go to pieces on the Stones
At the bottom of my Mind--

Yet blamed the Fate that flung it--less
Than I denounced Myself,
For entertaining Plated Wares
Upon My Silver Shelf--
-Emily Dickinson

I actually adored this book when I first read it (junior high, maybe?) and went on to read several of his other books as well. It wasn't until I took a course on eschatology in college that I understood the slipshod argumentation. Mark it down to lessons learned, I guess. ( )

3 stars for when I first read it, staying up past my bedtime to become simply amazed at what the future held in store. Now, I might not give it 3 stars but I'm not planning on another read any time in the near future. (If, indeed, we have a future.) ( )

Onveranderde herdruk van een boek dat in 1972 in Nederlandse vertaling verschenen is. De Amerikaanse schrijver, een leek die zich verdiept heeft in de Bijbel, geeft aan welke profetieën in de Bijbel er vervuld zijn en welke er nog op vervulling wachten. En die vervulling beschrijft hij in dit boek. De wereldpolitieke problemen en ontwikkelingen worden geduid en in de Bijbel ingelezen. Via schetsen geeft hij overzichtelijk aan wat er te wachten staat in de komende jaren. De krant wordt gelezen en de brug naar de Bijbel wordt gelegd. Hier is sprake van een bepaalde politieke prediking. Bij de verschijning was er sprake van paniek, want het Rapport van Rome verscheen ook in die tijd en wees ons op dreigende tekorten t.a.v. de grondstoffen. Dit boek geeft als een informatiegids aan wat er te verwachten zou zijn, met naam en jaartal. De huidige situatie is in het boek niet aangepast; sommige ontwikkelingen zijn anders verlopen en jaartallen zijn achterhaald. Het grote bezwaar tegen deze publikatie is dat de Bijbel gezien wordt als een puzzelboek; dat rationeel alles te duiden zou zijn.
