Nostradamus: The Good News

Overview

By rigorously adhering to Nostradamus’s own index dates, and carefully deciphering the codes, hidden meanings, and wordplay concealed within the medieval texts, Mario Reading forever altered our understanding of the seer’s writings. He now follows up his first astute analysis of Nostradamus’s complete prophecies with another truly original take on the prophet’s predictions. And this time, Reading sweeps away the forecasts of doom to shine a fresh and optimistic light on the future: his insights suggest the possibility of positive change in the world, not its destruction. These “Good News” quatrains cover most European countries, as well as America, Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Among the predictions: that a leader will arise in Africa who will act as an agent of renewal and restoration; that after the passing of a terrible epidemic, peace will be restored for years to come; and that a beneficial new world order will emerge thanks to a fundamental change in the perception of democracy.
