Overview

IS OUR WORLD COMING TO AN END? Progress tempts us to assume that our world will last indefinitely. But as we face a new millennium, it becomes increasingly apparent it won't. Hurtling Toward Oblivion is a guided tour of the realities that present a logical argument for the end of our age. Dr. Swenson combines the trends of social change, the nature of humankind, and the rapid advance of progress and technology in a fascinating and disturbing look at our most probable future. Understand our direction and why we are Hurtling Toward Oblivion. "I highly recommend Dr. Swenson's book to help us get in touch with the age we are living in and what we can do to better prepare ourselves and our loved ones, not only to survive, but to minister to others. "-Paul Meier, M. D. , cofounder and medical director of the New Life Clinics, and author of over fifty bood including Love is a Choice and The Third Millennium"Amidst the multitude of end-times books being published today, this remarkable book stands in a class by itself. Swenson builds his case solely on the basis of undeniable trends operative in the world today. The challenge is for Christians to live in such a way that this approaching end is good news, not bad news. "-Gregory A. Boyd, Ph.D. , professor of theology, Bethel College, quthor of Letters from a Skeptic and God at War
