Apocalypse Next Tuesday from the Author: David Safier. Cataclysmic events are nigh in Malente, Germany. Satan (a dead ringer for George Clooney) is on the prowl, recruiting horsemen for next week’s Armageddon – and in a boring, provincial place like this, he’s apparently spoiled for choice. One might hope that the Archangel Gabriel would be some help since he’s in town, but he’s too busy with a tantric sex marathon to deliver anyone from evil. Meanwhile gentle, sandal-wearing carpenter Joshua encounters, by chance, washed-up thirtysomething singleton Marie. She’s hit a career dead-end, and her dad’s gone and shacked up with some sort of Eastern European nymphomaniac. So when handsome Joshua comes round to work on the roof, she realises she has nothing to lose by asking him out. But what of his divinely-appointed task? The Apocalypse is scheduled for Tuesday. Things are looking grim. Provocative and blasphemous, but with surprising meditations on the nature of faith, free will and human nature, Apocalypse Next Tuesday is a book full of surprises. Wonderfully light and witty, it will keep you laughing from the first page to the last.

The Post Apocalyptic Primer from the Author: K. Scott Bradbury. While no one looks forward to what comes after Doomsday, author K. Scott Bradbury prompts readers to consider what will happen and how to mentally and physically prepare. In his debut work of nonfiction, The Post-Apocalyptic Primer, he examines what life might look like after the end of the world and it's not as abysmal as some might fear. In ten chapters including: Assessing Your Existing Survival Skills, Civilization After the Fall of Civilization, and Eat, Drink, and Be Wary, Bradbury offers commonsense strategies that exponentially boost one's chances of a bright future. Among other Apocalyptic scenarios, he describes what one might expect after a seismic catastrophe, an ice age event, nuclear war, and alien invasion as well as the stages of disorder, which he breaks down into Instant, Coming Soon, and Slow-Burn events. Where someone lives makes a big difference, but besides new threats, there are also new careers, new hobbies, and a whole new adventure, the only trick is to be ready for it.

Jesus Of The Apocalypse from the Author: Barbara Thiering. In her controversial 1992 bestseller Jesus the Man, Barbara Thiering first showed how the pesher method of 'decoding' two separate levels of meaning found in the Dead Sea Scrolls could be used by applying it to the Gospels, and presented a completely new historical interpretation of the life of Jesus Christ. Now, in a new work of remarkable research and scholarship, she sets out to unravel the mysteries that have long surrounded the elusive complexities of the Book of Revelation. 'It was not,' she writes, 'about vision and apocalypse, but about the profoundly important history of the Christian movement from AD 1 to AD 114.' In Jesus of the Apocalypse, Barbara Thiering presents a new and significant view of the development of Christianity from the time of the crucifixion until the second century AD. She argues that Jesus was no solitary preacher appearing suddenly on the shores of Lake Galilee: he was a central figure in a major political movement to overthrow the pagan Roman empire. Although crucified, he did not die on the cross, and he, and subsequently his sons, took an important role in the evolution of the new underground religion which was developing out of Judaism. With detective-like perseverance Theiring unfolds the mystery of words, meanings and places that have been allowed to pass unchallenged, including a radical new interpretation of such mystical themes as the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, the seven seals. the Beast whose number is 666, the Great Harlot clothed in scarlet and purple. In so doing, she provides an absorbing and enlightening background to a period that has so often been seen more through the implications of scripture than the facts of history.

Apocalypse Prophesied from the Author: Herbert Stollorz. Apocalypse Prophesied, describes God's 7,000-year plan for this earth, as supported by 1,000 Bible references. This plan includes 6,000 years of human history and 1,000 years of prophetic events yet to take place. With its many verses it has become like a miniature Bible that explains the Creator's plan for humanity and the reasons why we exist. The 10th chapter of this book focuses on the cuckoo clock analogy. It is a summary explanation of special historic events that correspond to parallel events that will take place during the 7 years of the Great Tribulation. We have a saying that history repeats itself, and this book demonstrates where it does so prophetically.

The Great Code from the Author: Northrop Frye. Considered by many to be Northrop Frye's magnum opus, The Great Code (1982) reflects a lifetime of thinking about the patterns and meanings of the Bible. In this new edition of The Great Code, Alvin A. Lee presents a corrected and fully annotated version of Frye's text, as well as a comprehensive introduction to help contextualize this important work and guide readers through its allusive passages. Lee's introduction provides a synoptic account of the role of the Bible in Frye's intellectual and spiritual odyssey, as well as a description of how The Great Code as a book came into existence, and an introductory critique of the shape and meaning of the book's argument. The Great Code is culturally allusive to a high degree. It takes much of its inspiration from the Bible itself, including a profusion of biblical passages, but also from the author's extensive reading of a host of other texts from ancient times until the late twentieth century. Lee's extensive annotation illustrates, beyond question, that Frye's knowledge of the Bible and how it has worked in Western culture was at once profound and visionary. This new edition not only re-presents Frye's text in a clear, correct, and fully annotated form, it goes a long way in helping us understand the widespread scholarly and popular reception that met this extraordinary and in some ways revolutionary book and how it can still be richly rewarding for readers.
