Why—just now—yet another interpretation of the Book of Revelation? My reason is to help the mess that the world is in. Serious events are exploding fast and furious under our noses dail y on TV and in the newspapers as the apocalyptic war that is now waging between the Muslim Militarism of the Middle East and the Malignant Materialism of the Christian West, and as confused Babylon's economic chaos that is crashing the globe into financial disaster and is spiraling it into a Greatest Depression.
Seen through the kaleidoscope of a new Faith, new decoded prophecies in the Book of Revelation show how materialism and militarism led to this mess and explain how the rise of spiritual economics will cure it. Indeed, these trying end times are really the magnificent beginning times of a prosperous golden Millennium. The Faith's scriptures reveal that the Apocalypse vision of St. John is a fresh, informative, and pertinent history of these events, especially the crucial fall of the Babylon of Confusion of Malignant Materialism (Chapter 18) and the vital entry of spiritual economics (Chapter 19).
Ahead of publishing Beyond Malignant Materialism as a hardcopy book, I ha sten to share the fresh, informative, and pertinent insights of these coded interpretations into the fast unfolding financial and political events now challenging all the peoples of the planet. I do this by already putting the c ontents of my book here on the World Wide Web.
