    The End and the Beginning too!!

    The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the future life written by Father Charles Arminjon is one of those books we can refer through our life for proper guidance. This book has it all, end of the world, the Antichrist, return of the Christ, purgatory, eternal beatitude and everything you ever wanted to know about. It not only prepares us for the end but also gives out points to inhabit in our life, featuring chapters of perpetuity.
    Every page of this book makes sense and helps us to realize what really matters to us. Since helping the poor to dealing the tough times with faith, it set up the behavior which upon following will provide us our ultimate goal. This book in a very clear way portrays how to follow the footsteps of Jesus and be worthy of the eternal life. This book helps us to detach from the temporary materialistic pleasure and connects us with the beautiful and everlasting life with Him.
    St. Therese of Lisieux has quoted this book as one of the greatest graces she received in her life. I received this book for review from Sophia Institute Press. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know everything about catholic religion.

    You'll enjoy this book if you're into the book of revelations or just want to know what God has in mind for the future of the earth. Read this book and be prepared. It is a slightly hard read but worth the effort.
