Review

Splendid... [A] compelling cultural history. Splendid... A compelling cultural history. -- L. S. Klepp "Village Voice Literary Supplement" Paul Boyer traces the roots and branches of the rich, strange complex of biblical exegesis and twisted journalism that he calls 'prophecy belief.' "When Time Shall Be No More" exhaustively describes a strange species of rabid predictions of the wrath to come. -- Anthony Grafton "New Republic" A splendid, rigorously documented treatise, as up to date as the morning newspaper...No book provides more comprehensive information about the awesome degree to which Biblical literalism and prophetic fervor have invaded the hearts and minds of Americans, rich and poor, educated and ignorant... Those who read the book can laugh and weep. -- Martin Gardner "Washington Post Book World" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
