Many best sellers have been written about Bible prophecy and their influence is sure to increase as the millennium approaches. Their authors first claim that many accurate predictions were made by the prophets of ancient times, and then insist they themselves have the same ability, using the Bible as a crystal ball to predict the usually apocalyptic future. Rarely have their methods of interpretation, their logic, or their historical accuracy been questioned. Tim Callahan rises to the challenge with wit and clarity.
How accurate were the Biblical prophets? Are modern events fulfillment of things described in the Book of Revelation? Tim Callahan investigates the claims of fundamentalist ministers that the fate of Egypt, the Philistines, the cities of Tyre, Nineveh and Babylon, among others, were foretold in accurate detail by such prophets as Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel; and that the future history of the world was foretold in such apocalyptic literature as the Book of Daniel, the Olivet Discourse from the Gospels and the Book of Revelation. By comparing the predictions to actual history, as well as to each other and by noting evidence of historical anachronisms and faulty scholarship on the part of fundamentalist apologists, Callahan subjects the prophecies of the Bible to four rigorous questions:
“A fine job … years ago my students urged me to write such a rebuttal … I am glad Callahan has taken up the challenge.” —Gerald Larue, Professor Emeritus of Biblical History and Archeology, USC
“ … illuminating and entertaining … composed with a wit and style. I look forward to subsequent offerings by Tim Callahan.” —Klee S. Bethel, M.D.
“This masterful skeptic’s tour of the Bible—its origin, its evolution, its interpretations, and its prophecies—is written with such clarity and flowing conversational style that I forgot the weight of the subject.” —Ben J. Wilson, M.D.
