I purchased this book for my mom who has been hearing some of the 2012 hype. It was very informative when it discussed all the possibilities floating around but when it came time to present the biblical view of end times he did so from a millennialism viewpoint - which I do not agree with. Jesus will come only once, and Revelation is not meant to be read as a literal account. We believers won't be swept away leaving our pajamas behind while others wander around bedazzled! Many of us are Amillennialists (many Christian denomations) so only reading about the one viewpoint was regretful.
