Book "Will The World End In 2012?" by Raymond C. Hundley, Ph.D.

This is a religious/christian life book written by Dr. Raymond Hundley in 2010. It was published by Thomas Nelson also in 2010 and they were kind enough to send me a copy for reviewing through their Booksneeze - Book Review Bloggers Program.

Holding a bachelor degree in theology, my main interest was always eschatology. The author does a magnificent job analyzing ten "end of world" prophecies during the first ten chapters of his book, and giving his point of view on each one with a conclusion at the end of each chapter, summarizing with logical arguments the validity (or not) of each prophecy. He covers the mayan prophecy, solar storms, the Large Hadron Collider, predictions of Nostradamus, reversal of magnetic poles, collision with another planet, Earth’s alignment with the galactic plane, eruption of a super volcano, the WEB Bot Project and finally some religious predictions of the end of the world. And his conclusions are coherent with Christian theology.
In general, this is a very easy reading book (it took me a little more than 5 hours to read it), very entertaining and hopefully the reader will be more at easy with the growing hysteria of 2012 end of the world. The end of the world as we know it is no different from the end of our individual personal lives. We should always be prepared for that.

My Rate: 4 stars
