Will the World End in 2012? by Raymond Hundley is a well-written Christian evaluation of the top ten theories of the 2012 doomsday movement. Hundley covers the Mayans, solar storms, the Hadron Collider, Nostradamus, reversal of Earth’s magnetic poles, collision with Planet X, galactic alignment, super volcanoes, the Web Bot Project, and religious predictions. Hundley evaluates each theory and gives solid reasons why each theory is good or bad based on solid logical arguments. The book includes a simple study guide for individuals or groups.
This is an interesting book. It is easy to read and held my attention through each chapter. The book contains solid information about each theory and lots of references to further your study.
I was impressed with the amount of information about each theory. I also enjoyed the evaluations of the theories. Hundley shows what we should not be concerned about, what we should be concerned about and how we should react to those concerns.
Hundley includes interviews to substantiate his evaluations. For example, he tells what the Mayans REALLY said, how Mayan descendants have understood those predictions, and further shows why we shouldn’t even be concerned with Mayan predictions in the first place.
Even thought this is a Christian perspective, Hundley covers several religious views and treats them all fairly.
I highly recommend this book. The information is straightforward and level headed without even a hint of sensationalism. 5 out of 5 stars!
