Default New Book: Apocalypse Survival Guide for Christians

My latest book just became available today (March 31, 2011)

Apocalypse Survival Guide for Christians
http://www.catholicplanet.com/apocalypse/

I usually talk about my forthcoming books in advance, but this time I decided to wait until it was available to mention it.

It is less a book of eschatology, and more a book of practical considerations for dealing with the apocalypse (the tribulation). The book discusses topics such as storing food, growing food, water purification, first aid, land, shelter, transportation, utilities, etc. It is a look at how the apocalypse might affect all of these different practical aspects of our lives, and how we might prepare, or endure, these difficulties. Some excerpts from the book are available on the page for the book, at the link above.

The Amazon listing will have a description added to it soon. It will be the same as the text on the CreateSpace.com listing.

I am looking forward to reading it. It looks like a future filled with hardship is upon us. Time to roll up our sleeves and press onward with courage.

When do you suppose these difficulties would begin?

I think this year. The Warning will bring difficulties; it will profoundly change society, the Church, families, and relationships. Then the same year the afflicitions of the tribulation begin.

The four horsemen of the apocalypse:
1. World War 3
2. severe civil unrest
3. famine
4. death from a variety of causes
These afflictions prevail for most of the 2010's

Default Strange to look forward and imagine such change....

seems hard to think that our world could be so different in 5 or 10 years. When I look back that long into the past, things have not changed much. Strange to think that such a period into the future could be so different...

back to the main topic of this thread...

The first chapter of Apocalypse Survival Guide for Christians is general consideration, including a description of the purpose of the book, and its limitations. The book is not intended to be the sole source of information or advice about what to do. This book is more a discussion of various considerations. The reader should not merely do whatever the book says, nor buy whatever items the book mentions. So the reader should develop his or her own opinions about how to prepare. The function of my book is to assist the reader in developing his own ideas on the subject.

The second chapter reviews my predictions for the first part of the tribulation, predictions with which the readers of this discussion group are already familiar. I also cover some of the effects of these events on practical matters. For example, the severe events at the end of this period of time (esp. radioactive fallout) will make much of the fresh water in the world undrinkable. Also, these same severe events will not only harm the economy, but also, by the late 2030's, make money literally worthless. Even gold and silver will have little or no value.

I think it can be a good helpful, consultative or advisory book.

Default good thing to pass on to children.....

seems that, to the degree that it is possible, we should inculcate in our children knowledge of these areas as this things could certainly occur within their lifetimes if not ours...
