Apocalypse Secrets: Baha'i Interpretation of the Book of Revelation by Dr John Able 2009 is a fresh provocative Parallel Interpretation of the Apocalypse (Book of Revelation) containing 60 illustrations. The author is a retired intensive-care physician. Using Baha'i sources, Able decodes the Book of Revelation as a multi-millennial pre-history of seven Empires and seven Faiths emerging out of the Middle East, leading into the events now crescendoing fast and furious across the planet. He argues cogently that these Empires and Faiths and their materialism and militarism have caused the mess that the world is in. Today these events center on the apocalyptic war waging between the Revelation beast of Muslim Militarism that drives the Middle East and the Revelation Babylon of Malignant Materialism that drives the Christian West. The fall of the Babylon of Malignant Materialism is inevitable. Now economic crises are spiraling the globe into a paralytic depression. The good news is that spiritual economics will fix the mess and will turn these painful end times into wonderful beginning times. Able's Apocalypse Secrets is a profound and astonishing work in biblical exegesis-a real tour de force as a strikingly original, scholarly, remarkably holistic, comprehensive, and rationally consistent interpretation of the Book of Revelation. This book intelligently probes and penetrates many of the great religious mysteries, arguing that Revelation extends far beyond its strictly Middle East Christic origin. It transcends religious dogma, bridges religious faiths, and explains nineteen hundred years of troubled events in Christianity and Islam with amazing clarity and prescience. It is amazingly detailed and thorough. The author's stylish rhetoric is colorful and alive and his book beautifully crafted and researched, making for an engaging, enlightening, and thought-provoking read. At the end a scholarly Translation Section decodes original Greek and Hebrew sources. Able's strikingly lively translation sticks to the intention of the Greek original. It provides an authoritative base for his distinctive Parallel Interpretation. For anyone striving to penetrate the hidden secrets of the Apocalypse, Beyond Malignant Materialism is must reading. This exceedingly interesting book will influence many future works about the subject and become a template of understanding and peace for all. After reading it, people who are interested in prophecy will never look at the Book of Revelation the same again. Apocalypse Secrets is available as a color softcover version, an ebook version, a color hardcover version, and a black and white softcover version. To order visit http://www.ApocalypseSecrets.com.

Two miles from where he attended school stood three Thor rockets pointed at the USSR and tipped with nuclear bombs possessing 450 times the explosive power of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs. Now retired, Able has discovered what the Apocalypse of the Armageddon that faced him in the 1950s was then and is now. His discovery has led him to write Beyond Malignant Materialism. --This text refers to the Paperback edition. show more
