What In the World Is Going On? Ten Propehtic Clues You Cannot Afford to Ignore
Ah yes, no better subject for ranting than Christian literature.
To be fair, I haven't read the book. And I won't. I know all I need to know from the description:
It is hard to piece together all this information in a way that gives a comprehensive picture of what the end times will look like. That's why so many theories abound. And that's why Dr. David Jeremiah has written What In the World Is Going On?, a unique book that cuts through the hundreds of books and numerous theories to identify the essential 10 most important bible prophecies.AKA "Yeah, we know theres a ton of other books like this out there, but they all suck and this one is right."
Also, note that they are trying to compell you to purchase the book by relying on fear. "Clues you cannot afford to ignore." Right. This is the same tactic the local news uses right before the commercial before they tell you about the dangers of salmonella tracings on your child's lunch tray.
The book offers scriptural enlightenment on the following subjects:
- The oil crisis
- The resurgence of Russia
- The new axis of evil
- The importance of Israel
- The new powers of the European Union
Now, we all know its easy just to rip on stuff and never really offer anything yourself. So here's my take: Whats wrong with the world can be seen when a Wal-Mart clerk is crushed beneath a mob of blood, er, bargain thirsty shoppers. When a man who is clearly dying, being treated by emergency response crews is casually passed by because BluRay DVD players are 10% off, we can see what is wrong with the world. I don't think scripture is meant to be twisted into an ethnocentric magic 8 Ball and I don't think we need to see another Christian prophecy book. Rant on!
