February #BookOfTheMonth: A Brief History of End Time

Added about 5 years ago by Sacristy Press

/images/blog/A Brief History of End Time (3D) cropped.pngFebruary’s #BookOfTheMonth is Paula Clifford's A Brief History of End Time, a thoroughly entertaining exploration of end-time ideas and beliefs.

Blake, Nostradamus, Christian fundamentalists, and latter-day prophets are just some of the many individuals and groups—both religious and secular—who have speculated about the end of the world. 

Are they just misguided enthusiasts or is there still something to be learnt from them now that more than 2,000 years of the Christian era have passed without the Apocalypse? Why has the end of time exercised a continuing fascination over the human imagination?

In this thoroughly entertaining exploration of end-time ideas and beliefs, Dr Paula Clifford indulges her own fascination with the colourful array of characters and events, and artefacts associated with them. She reaches thoughtful and surprising conclusions in light of today’s fears of environmental catastrophe and an ever-increasing knowledge of the origins and destiny of our universe.

A Brief History of End Time: Prophecy and Apocalypse, then and now is our February #BookOfTheMonth. Get your copy today, and keep an eye out for Paula Clifford’s blog later in the month.
