The end of the world was foretold long ago. But few believed the prophecy would come true. Ravaged by humankind’s self-inflicted woes and overcome by greed and selfish fantasies, the world has become a wasteland of lost morals and decency. When a charismatic man with a vast understanding of culture, economics, and civil rights rises to power, he mesmerizes everyone. The leader proposes a world united under one capital, devoid of differences in systems, beliefs, and feelings. Under this one-world government, the global crisis will cease and peace will reign. The only requirement is that all the leaders and citizens around the globe must pledge undying loyalty to the new state. Meanwhile, the state attempts to quash the few remaining people who see signs that the end is near and God is preparing to return. If these believers are right, the world will soon experience a series of unstoppable cataclysms that will not only change humankind but also destroy it forever. The apocalypse is coming, but will the world recognize the signs in time? Humanity languishes in a world of self-made problems. Amid the chaos fueled by greed and corruption, a charismatic and magnetic leader offers to solve the worldwide crisis—as long as the global population is willing to give up everything to follow him. As an evil one-world government seeks to control commerce, laws, and beliefs, leaders from nations around the world will bow before this man and pledge undying loyalty. Lending stark realism to the apocalyptic biblical prophecies found in the Book of Revelation, Stuart Lee Williams’s thrilling book set in the end times creates a chilling landscape rife with signs of the world’s end, the battle between angels and demons, and the depths of human depravity. When is the end of the world? As the Bible says, no one knows the hour—but when it comes, it might just look like this.

A startling exploration of the history of the most controversial book of the Bible, by the bestselling author of Beyond Belief. Through the bestselling books of Elaine Pagels, thousands of readers have come to know and treasure the suppressed biblical texts known as the Gnostic Gospels. As one of the world's foremost religion scholars, she has been a pioneer in interpreting these books and illuminating their place in the early history of Christianity. Her new book, however, tackles a text that is firmly, dramatically within the New Testament canon: The Book of Revelation, the surreal apocalyptic vision of the end of the world . . . or is it? In this startling and timely book, Pagels returns The Book of Revelation to its historical origin, written as its author John of Patmos took aim at the Roman Empire after what is now known as "the Jewish War," in 66 CE. Militant Jews in Jerusalem, fired with religious fervor, waged an all-out war against Rome's occupation of Judea and their defeat resulted in the desecration of Jerusalem and its Great Temple. Pagels persuasively interprets Revelation as a scathing attack on the decadence of Rome. Soon after, however, a new sect known as "Christians" seized on John's text as a weapon against heresy and infidels of all kinds-Jews, even Christians who dissented from their increasingly rigid doctrines and hierarchies. In a time when global religious violence surges, Revelations explores how often those in power throughout history have sought to force "God's enemies" to submit or be killed. It is sure to appeal to Pagels's committed readers and bring her a whole new audience who want to understand the roots of dissent, violence, and division in the world's religions, and to appreciate the lasting appeal of this extraordinary text.

Marvin Martin, the show's host, is angry. Night after night he strips his guests of their pitiful pretensions, their commonplace hypocrisies - but how long has it been since he uncovered a genuine revelation? Hurwitz, who selects Martin's victims, is scared. He made a bad mistake when he chose Doris Jensen; she turned out to be from a competitive network and ruined a taping. Hurwitz's job is in danger. Walter Monaghan, historically, the 29th man to have walked on the moon, is desperate. He wants to tell the Revelations audience the truth about America's "space program" - that it never got off the ground. If he's just another nut, why is it so important that he be silenced?

"I will open my mouth in a parable, I will utter dark sayings of old, which we have heard and known and our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from our children..." Psalm 78:2-4 Thetruthishere.com presents Revelations, Alpha and Omega. In its opening scene, the narrator promises "Stories, myths, and legends. I'll show you where they all began. And more importantly, how they end." In fulfilling this promise, David Allen Rigsby's epic tale carries the reader on a mythical tour through time and space, where the inter-relation of religious tales and historical events is revealed. The classic struggle between God and Satan proves to be true! Gabriel told the prophet Daniel that the understanding of end-time prophecy was to be sealed until the end days. Are they here? Revelations Omega chillingly predicted the terrorist attack on the World Trade Towers and Washington DC. So what is next? Readers perplexed by the events of today's world can look to Revelations, Alpha and Omega for understanding, solace, and hope. "Original, enlightening, and provocative...a captivating tale! Rigsby's interpretation casts a light on human affairs which is both timeless and timely." —Henry Berry, Editor/Publisher, The Small Press Book Review
