    DECEMBER 21, 2012

    I am one person who will be waiting and watching what will happen on December 21, 2012. It's strange that if you pay attention to what is happening around you, that the events have already started, earthquakes, tsunamis, global warming, wars. But the alignment of the solar system that the Mayas predicted and what could happen is spooky! But we shall see. The only thing that I have to add is that this book tells me what I already suspected, that only GOD has the last say and determines when it will end. My feeling is that we will destroy ourselves first before HE does.

    Is 2012 hysteria really called for?

    In the hysteria to come over all the prophesies about 2012 Mark Hitchcock has written a book about what to expect the world rumours to be and what the Bible actually says about it all. I must admit that it took me a long time to read the first half of this book. I expect that that was because I already knew about all the different myths and prophecies so I found that first section rather tedious. I think that those people who are not familiar with all the different versions and views will find it very interesting and enlightening. The last half I found very interesting for it focuses on what the Bible says about the end days and what we should be paying attention to. The last chapter gives constructive instruction on how the Bible says we should prepare for the end days and concrete arguments about why we should ignore most of what will be broadcast about the 2012 myth, where these myths differ from the Bible, and what to expect.

    Informative but vague

    This book is packed with information about theories of the year 2012. I thought that it'd just center around the Bible and Mayans, but Hitchcock does touch on the New Age movement's theories. I say touched because although he gives the reader different examples, he does not go very deeply into the topic. I also did not like that when he referenced scripture he didn't always write it out in the book, but depends on the reader to look it up themselves. If you're looking for a GENERAL discussion on endtimes get this book, but if you're looking for something deeper I might have to say pass. The extra bits of information (as far as New Age theories) are interesting so I can't say pass all together.

    The book is ok, as well as the info, but I dont see any info oth

    The book is ok, as well as the info, but I dont see any info otherr than a researched work. There is no insight into what the writer believes. All the points covered were from someone else, just mixed together.

    Recommend-valuable info on Mayan and best Biblical counter

    A must read if you want to know facts about why the Mayan calender is so popular; but the best is factual counter action by the Bible and what is yet to come for those who truly believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ.
