Overview

What in the world is happening? The answer may shock you. A drama so intense that the entire universe will feel its power unfolding—yet at the same time, the prospects for world peace and safety have never seemed brighter. Could this be the peace that leads to the end of human history? So many predictions about the end of the world have proved false that even Christians are affected by a what-difference-does-it-make attitude. But someday, while people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, centuries-old prophecies are today's headlines. Is the world on the verge of receiving a new savior who will lead an unsuspecting global community to destruction—or is the Antichrist merely an outdated bit of biblical imagery? Noted researcher and author Dave Hunt provides the solid scriptural outlook on current events that you've been waiting for. Global Peace will give you the answers you need to make sense of world events and awaken your resolve to prepare for what lies ahead.

In this timely reprint of Dave Hunt’s classic 1990 work, the author holds a remarkably steady balance between history and biblical prophecy that has withstood the test of time. The Bible declares that a one-world government and universal New Age religion are coming. When we take God’s Word seriously, says noted author and cult expert Dave Hunt, “a door swings open to fascinating new insights...provided only that we take into consideration certain factors that most ‘experts’ on the future—both Christian and non-Christian—have overlooked.” Readers will gain valuable insight for today—and tomorrow—from this fascinating perspective.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Amazing that this book was written several years ago. Gives inter-connectedness of Al Gore's political agenda to the 'one world order.' This book reveals the pre-conceived explanantion that will be given by those left behind for the phenomenon of the rapture and what has happened to the rest of us." -- Reader

"My first time reading Dave Hunt... and I thought it was a good book. It gave me a better understanding of the Catholic Church's stand on certain topics, the role of the Pope and the Ecumenical movement in the end times and how a modern world can be deceived about what happened to those disappearing during the rapture." --E. Rush, Cranston, RI

Read an Excerpt

At the same time that the foundation is being laid for the political revival of the Roman Empire something else of equal significance is happening. The church and "Christianity" of ancient Rome are being resurrected before our very eyes with the blessing of the leaders of the world's religions and leading Protestants as well. A brief look at history will help us to understand that what happened to Christianity under Constantine is recurring today.

The ancient Roman Empire was a pluralistic society such as [today's world leaders are hoping to create]. Any religion was tolerated. There was, however, one exception: Christianity, which by its very claims condemned all other religions. Christians were hated and persecuted and often killed, not because they believed in Christ, but because they believed only in Him.
