Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered what the ancient prophets had to say about these modern times? Find the answer in Prophecy and Modern Times, a brief but powerful exploration into 6,000 years of prophecies about these latter days. All the ancient warnings and promises are beautifully distilled, organized, and explained for clear understanding and quick application by this generation.

As President Ezra Taft Benson said in the foreword, “Every person interested in present and future events in this war-torn world will profit from a careful perusal of these pages.”

Prophecy and Modern Times will help you interpret what ancient prophecies mean for your own life, and for the modern world. These prophets foresaw many of the complexities of the modern era, the Middle East, America, the rise of enormous economic and military powers, the stealthy corruption of nations and of personal lives, and how the second coming of Jesus Christ will finally begin a long-awaited era of peace.

Gary D. Goodwin, of the Association for Mormon Letters, said “Skousen reveals his brilliance in his organization of such a monumentally complicated task. He suggests how to interpret prophecy, tells us its purpose and our responsibility to understand it. Skousen is masterful!”

Encouragement for the Last Days

What did you love best about Prophecy and Modern Times?

There are many books about prophecy and the end of times that are doom and gloom. Prophecy and Modern Times gave a clear picture of what will happen in the last days. The encouragement and optimism that I felt was very much needed.

What other book might you compare Prophecy and Modern Times to and why?

This book could be compared to The Cleansing of America by W. Cleon Skousen. Both are great books that give hope and encouragement as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ approaches.

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed learning about prophecy and why it is important. My favorite section of the book was Prophecy Concerning the Millennium. I learned there are a lot of struggles but if we do not have trails we cannot realize our eternal potential. In the end the good people of the earth will win.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It certainly is a book that I want to listen to in one sitting. In fact I listened to the entire book on a three hour drive.

Any additional comments?

This audiobook is one that I will keep in my library and refer to often. It is good to freshen up on the events of the last days given by Prophets. It gives me encouragement.

A great listen concerning our day

Would you consider the audio edition of Prophecy and Modern Times to be better than the print version?

I cannot compare as I have not read the book. However, the narrator really brings the book to life and makes it very interesting. The author has great ideas and makes learning of possible prophecy explanations in our day very intriguing.

Prophecy and Modern Times is Timely and Needed

Would you listen to Prophecy and Modern Times again? Why?

Definitely! There are so many rumors and bad news stories out there regarding the end of times, that it is nice to get some hopeful messages.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Prophecy and Modern Times?

The good guys win in the end.

What does Mark Deakins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It has to be Mark's voice. When dealing with the Second Coming Mark added feeling and power that would not have been obtained by just reading the book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It is a fast read/listen. It is easy to listen to all the way through without even noticing. I did listen to it all in one day.

Any additional comments?

Thank you for finally getting this book on audio!

Very Enlightening!

This is a scholarly work. At times, especially at the beginning, the text is dry and I found it difficult to stay engaged. But when the end times began unfolding, it was much easier to follow and be emotionally invested in the outcome of the story. I learned many things that ai did not know. I am grateful for the time and effort given to bring this book about. Thank you.

a book worth reading

I loved it. I listened to it three times. I enjoy Cleon Skousen writing and studies. It is fascinating to compare world events to ancient prophesy.
