Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Is it the end of the world as we know it? According to a considerable minority in this country alone, the end just may be near. How else can we explain the mind-boggling popularity of such prophets as Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce? If your library caters to the converted, you may consider purchasing this A-to-Z overview of the history of apocalyptic beliefs. In 200 entries, the Willises (The Religion Book: Places, Prophets, Saints, and Seers) tackle such topics as collisions with asteroids, nuclear war, global warming, and more.
