I was looking for a book on the question: "Why did prophecy cease?" This book was not exactly about my question. However, it helped me understand the reasons behind the fall of prophecy. 'When Prophecy Failed' is primarily about the failure of prophecy in a post disaster community.
The problem with the book is its literature. The language is quite old fashioned (the book is written in late 70s anyway); and it can be very (very) boring.
