Read in October, 2010

After reading Tom Holland's Forge of Christendom and Barbara Tuchman's The Distant Mirror, both of which dealt with times when many Christians thought the end of the world was near, I was interested in reading a book that summarized the various people through history who have thought such. I was happy to stumble upon this book at the local library. Overall, it does provide the information I was interested in, showing many examples of people throughout history (mostly Christian) who believed the end was coming very soon. I mostly give it two stars because the author seemed kind of all over the place, there was little overall progression. So it is a helpful read, but not particularly enjoyable.
