Item description for END OF DAYS - The Apocalyptic Writings by B. Lumpkin Joyce Dujardin Joseph...
Is mankind headed for destruction? How will it all end? When will it happen? What is man's destiny? Will we die by our own hand or by the hand of God? For thousands of years the questions have been the same. Millions of souls have searched for the answers to no avail; nevertheless, some believed they knew. We call them prophets. They saw the end of our world and they believed their visions were true. Are we to believe their God-given insights into the End Of Days? Perhaps God did pull back the curtain that blinds man to his future. Maybe these writers did see the end and how it would come upon us. The prophets of doom revealed a scenario of global cataclysm. They tell the story of rulers bankrupting nations to fund tremendous wars. They tell of weather gone awry; of ice and snow, rain and floods, hurricanes and earthquakes where seldom they occurred. They tell us of what is happening all around us today.

Apocalypse Jun 30, 2007
End of Days: The Apocalyptic Writings The Apocalypse of Abraham, The Apocalypse of Thomas, 4 Ezra, 2 Baruch
This book tells what the ancients thought the end of the world would be and why it would come. As I read, I ran across the following oddity written 1600 to 1800 years ago. I reads like today's paper. If you like non-canonical books this is a good one to have.
After that a king will arise, this time in the southern section of the world, and will rule for only a short time. In his days the economy will bankrupt (treasury will fail) because of the wages of the (Roman) soldiers. And he will order the substance of all the older citizens be taken and given to the king so it could be distributed. After that there will be plenty of corn and wine and oil, but a tremendous lack of money, so that it would take the substances of gold and silver to buy corn, and there will be tremendous hunger (dearth). (Hyper-inflation is indicated here.) At that time the sea level will rise greatly and communications will be cut off from man to man. The kings, princes and the captains of the earth will be nervous (troubled/ fearful), and no man will speak freely.
Four Accounts of the End of Days Jun 18, 2007
The Title reads: End of Days The Apocalyptic Writings
The Apocalypse of Abraham The Apocalypse of Thomas, or The Revelation of Thomas 4 Ezra, also referred to as 2 Esdras or the Apocalypse of Ezra 2 Baruch, also known as the Syriac Apocalypse of Baruch
These four non-canonical books give various depictions of what the end of the world will be like, and what to expect in the the new world to come. I found some of the reading to be boring as the prophets droned on as only they can. The translations were easy to get through and were done well and the meat of the stories were interesting. One of them made me wonder if there was any difference between the account of the end and our world today.
