Item description for The End: A Futurists Guide to the Very Last Days by Mark Hatch...
Overview Nuclear warfare. Religious jihads. Genetic engineering run amuck. Are we nearing the end of the world as we know it? A few vocal futurists have publicly admitted that we are likely to destroy ourselves by the year 2050. Many more say that for the first time in human history we cannot confidently predict the broad outlines of the human condition a mere 50 years from now. Join futurist Mark Hatch in this absorbing-and alarming-wake-up call on why many of today's scientists and futurists believe the end is near. Hatch will examine credible doomsday scenarios and compare them with the biblical indicators of the last days. Then, he'll invite you to explore with him what this means for Christians. In Hatch's first book, Boiling Point, released in January of 2001, he told us that within the decade we would see: blackouts and rolling brownouts (like those that have since hit both coasts), the danger of new infectious diseases (West Nile Virus, specifically), an increase in terrorism (with the likely development of ultra-violent extremism), and the use of video to distribute terror images globally (such as filmed beheadings). What's next for our fragile planet? Read The End to discover what the last chapter holds in store.
Publishers Description A few vocal futurists have publicly admitted that we are likely to destroy ourselves by the year 2050. Many more admit that, for the first time in human history, we cannot confidently predict the broad outlines of the human condition a mere 50 years from now. Here is a fascinating look at why many of today's scientists and futurists believe the end is near and how that should inform our Christian journey. Pointing out that secular and Christian observers can already see that we have entered the final season, this resource explores credible doomsday scenarios and compares those theories with the biblical indicators of the very last days. This is a call to live our lives with commitment and consistency in light of the end's reality and proximity.

I am the editor of a magazine for a faith-based organization and received a review copy from the publisher. I've now read it twice and had been carrying it in my breifcase until I gave it to a friend today. So I just bought a second copy! Frankly, this book frightened me more than anything I have read in a very long time. However, it ends with a focus on stewardship and evangelism and encourages readers to make a difference in our world in the time we have left. Author Mark Hatch's credentials are impressive; he also has the ability to make highly technical sujects easy to understand, so THE END is NOT difficult to read. Get this book-it is an absolute necessity! I am recommending it to ALL of my friends!
