Overview

In Will the World End in 2012? Christian author Raymond Hundley, PhD, presents a stirring, well-researched evaluation of the ten most prominent end-of-the-world theories.

Ancient Mayan priests, Nostradamus, a woman in touch with alien beings, religious prophets—they all offer their reasons for believing that 2012 is the terrifying date for the end of human history. They project scenes of solar storms; collision with another planet; attacks from outer space; and super volcanoes that cause earthquakes, fires, and devastating tsunami waves that destroy everything and everyone in their path. Amidst the fabric of theories and predictions, Hundley deftly guides the reader and carefully considers each scenario.

In a time when people everywhere will be asking Will the World End in 2012?, this evangelistic booklet gives Christians the perfect opportunity to reach out to their family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors, no matter what happens in 2012.

There has been so much buzz around the year 2012 throughout the media, in books and movies, etc. I've heard so much about the Mayan calendar, but I've never really taken the time to study up on the things that I hear....until now. Written by Christian author, Raymond C. Hundley, PH.D., Will the World End in 2012? seeks to give an unbiased look at many of the theories surrounding this controversial year. In the beginning of the book, the author describes the movie 2012, as he introduces the subject of this book. Of course, many people are interested in this topic, but I firmly believe that we know not the day or the hour when the world is going to end. Even Mayan prophecies, though the calendar may end in the year 2012, still predict events happening long after the year 2012. This book doesn't just encompass the Mayan theories and prophecies, though; the author also delves into other theories and prophecies, some of which really don't sound all that far-fetched....for example, the Solar Storms, which I believe really could happen, as we experience solar flares now. It's scary to think about, but it's definitely a possibility. The following are the topics/theories discussed within the pages of this book: 1. The Mayan Factor 2. Solar Storms 3. CERN and the Large Hadron Collider 4. The Predictions of Nostradamus 5. The Reversal of the Magnetic Poles 6. Collision of Planet X 7. Earth's Alignment with the Galactic Plane 8. Eruption of the Super Volcano 9. The Web Bot Project 10. Religious Predictions of the End of the World 11. Final Evaluations 12. Preparation for the End of the World The last chapter on preparing for the end is a wonderful way of sharing the Gospel with unbelievers who may read this book; it gives hope through faith to those of us who are believers. Both my husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and gleaned much from it, as the author also gives his own conclusions on each chapter. The topics are interesting, even to an unscientific mind, and I've gathered so much insight through the reading of this book. You can purchase Will the World End in 2012? for $14.99 from Thomas Nelson. (Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book, free of charge, through BookSneeze, for the purposes of this review. All views/opinions are my own.)

I'm still not sure about the theories presented in Will the World End in 2012? by Raymond Hundley. It seems everyone has a theory about everything. The end of the world is just another one. For centuries, theories have been tossed around about how the world will end. My students even ask me my opinion. My opinion? I don't believe in theories. I believe in truth. And the truth is that no knows for sure when the end of the world will happen. But when it does, I'll be ready. Whether that's in 2012 or 2062. As far as this book goes, I think the development of the theories is lacking slightly but gave an decent overview. For anyone looking for a definitive answer, I don't think this book will suffice. But it may help give insight and help some to come to their own conclusions.
