Publisher's Summary

The hundreds of end-of-time prophecies splashed across the consciousness from the time of clay tablets to our Internet have had something besides hysteria in common: every one of them has been wrong. Here is a survey of three millennia of apocalyptic prophecies, tracing one of the most remarkable threads of our cultural history: our long and unproductive fascination with apocalyptic myths and miracles that can solve our problems without requiring committed action in our own lives.

Disappointing

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narrator, Bill Andrew Quinn, did an excellent job. My disappointments don't lie with him.

What could John Michael Greer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

John Michael Greer is obviously an atheist academic who presents himself as elite to anyone who has beliefs.
