It’s a fascinating book if you’re interested in religions, prophets, cult leaders, and prophecies about the end of the world. The author gives good descriptions of them. But you will be disappointed with her own prophecies because many of them have already been shown to be false. Her prophecies are also unrealistic, because they are overly optimistic. It’s funny how she can do all this research into the different end of world prophecies and prophets, almost all of which predict doom and gloom, and still she disagrees with them and puts a positive spin on the end of the world.
In the beginning of the book she lists a bunch of Christian prophecies which failed to come true (3-11). But she doesn’t learn from their mistake, because she commits it herself: by being specific about certain things happening in a certain year.
There is more probable validity of other end of world predictions made in this book by other people, because there are commonalities between them. You’ll have to read the book yourself to find those commonalities.

The prophecy by the author that seems to be the only one anyone cares about:
“In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments. Almost more baffling than the illness itself will be the fact that it will suddenly vanish as quickly as it arrived, attack again ten years later, and then disappear completely” (250-251).
Covid-19 appeared in 2020, but it is not severe, and there ARE treatments for it (zinc, vitamin D, hydroxychloriquine, etc.). She predicts that illness will be the reason for the end of humanity, but it won’t be from this pneumonia-like illness; it’ll be from our “disastrous environment we’re in the process of creating” (278).

You shouldn’t only start to care about a doom prophecy when the prophecy has already come true. Shouldn’t you try to prepare for or prevent other doom predictions from coming true, before they do?

To be honest I thought this book was going to deal with the Corona virus and its consequences. That was touched on at the very end of the book and just in passing. Frankly I found the revelations in history relating to doomsday prophecies did not interest me. What I enjoyed could have been summed up in 30 pages.

Very well researched & brilliant book. It's best to have an open mind when reading.

This is not about Psychic prophecies (although the publishers appear to have insisted that Sylvia include some at the end of the book). It is about the various religious approaches to "Armageddon" throughout the ages.

Sylvia has a well rounded education in philosophy & associated history & it really shows itself in this book.

I was sooo not nterested in the religious overview, I'm crystal clear on what various religions have to say about the rapture and end of the worl. however i enjoyed her point of view and expectation of the end of the world. it sounds interesting the only thing is there's no punishment for the "evil dooers" interesting tho :/
