LadyLiberty no, I don't believe I've read that one, although I have heard of it. The one I did read was "End-Time Visions, The Road to Armageddon? " by Richard Abanes, very interesting by the way. It even had a section on the JW's. This book opened my eyes, and helped me see that this "End Time" idea has been around from the beginning of the christian movement. When you look at history outside of the biased JW literature, you see that over the centuries the majority of the people while dealing with disasters, famine and mass illness have always thought that things have never been worse, that this really is it "The End" Christ will be here soon" but life goes on, and things calm down, then get worse again, this is the fabric of life, change, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse, but nothing ever stays the same.
