In Will the World End in 2012?, Raymond Hundley, PhD, gives a Christian evaluation of the ten most prominent apocalypse theories causing 2012 mania.
In the first millennia after the birth of Christ, nestled in the mountains of Central America, the Mayan people gazed at the stars and calculated days, months, years, and even the future. Their calendar, more sophisticated than any the world had known, indicated an abrupt end of time, December 21, 2012. The future they predicted is now upon us.
“There have been 149 apocalypse predictions between AD 44 and 2009,” says author Dr. Raymond Hundley. But will it really happen? In this stirring, balanced, and well-researched book, he evaluates the ten most prominent apocalypse theories and gives a surprising answer to the question everyone is asking.
His knowledge and insights lead to compelling conclusions . . . and a heartfelt call for all of humanity to look upon Jesus Christ as it seeks clarity and peace.
I really enjoyed this book, it's a subject that is talked about so much lately, even my little 7 year old has asked me many times if the earth really is ending in 2012.
It's on everyone's mind, are the rumors true? Will it really end or is this just another hoax?
I love that the author Dr. Hundley tackles the top ten “end of the world” predictions for 2012. Each prediction gets its own chapter: The Mayan Factor, Solar Storms, CERN and the Large Hadron Collider, The Predictions of Nostradamus, The Reversal of the Magnetic Poles, Collision with Planet X, Earth’s Alignment with the Galactic Plane, Eruption of the Super Volcano, The Web Bot Project, and Religious Predictions of the End of the World.
Very interesting read, my husband enjoyed it too as he loves these kind of subject matters.
I received this complimentary book from Thomas Nelson for review purposes.
