In 2012, the Bible, and the End of the World, bestselling prophecy expert Mark Hitchcock explores a fascinating last-days controversy that is gaining the attention of millions all over the globe.
What should Christians make of the rapidly spreading speculations that the world will end on December 21, 2012? The ancient Mayans were expert astronomers and their advanced calendar cycles predict 12/21/2012 as a catastrophic day of apocalypse. This prophecy has spawned a growing number of fringe-element books, Web sites, and even a major movie--complete with all-star cast--scheduled to release in July 2009.
Missing in the furor is a biblical perspective. Bible teacher Mark Hitchcock--whose books have sold more than 300,000 copies--examines the following questions:
  • Why December 21, 2012?
  • Can we trust the Mayan alarm clock?
  • Does the Bible say anything about 2012
  • What signs will tell us that Armageddon is near?
This book provides a fascinating survey of both the historical past and the prophetic future. Readers will discover how to effectively counter baseless speculation with biblical fact.
