This in-depth research work differs from the traditional approach to 'apocalipticism' or the idea of the end of the world. The subject is no longer limited to eschatology outlines debated in religious circles. It has become a matter of general interest and, even more, a profitable business.The goal of this book is to analyze this subject from a Christian perspective and in a rational way, using critical methods to: Explain the irresistible fascination that the idea of end-times has exercised historically in the human mind at all levels; Denounce the exploitation and abuses committed by the mass communications industry---newspapers, publishing, broadcast television, film-makers, etc.---both in the general public and in religious circles; Demonstrate that some of the predictions in John's Revelation are not future events but are already present realities in this world; Present, from the perspective of current evangelical theology, ideas for developing your own eschatology, free of foreign suggestions.This book is written in a journalistic style that is pleasant and friendly to the reader, even though not one iota of the author's academic rigor is sacrificed in the telling. Every important point in the text is documented with extensive footnotes. This is a valiant effort to draw attention to abuses committed and its message does not inspire indifference.
