Whether or not you believe in prophesy, the Bible as literal truth, Armageddon, the Rapture, the return of the Dajaal or the creation of a worldwide caliphate as a harbinger of the end of time, you will, upon reading this book, ultimately believe that there are powerful forces afoot today conspiring to bring about these cataclysmic events within our lifetime.
Exposing these forces, the myths upon which many of their beliefs are based, the stealth actions they have been taking for decades, and the insidious and potentially devastating effect they are having upon the social, cultural and spiritual fabric of our society, Baigent poses the pressing question: can we really afford to remain oblivious much longer?
In this latest investigative book, Racing Toward Armageddon, Baigent takes readers to the assembly hall of the UN, the boardrooms of major businesses and powerful lobbying groups, the cabinet meetings of world leaders, the ranches of U.S. cattle breeders, congregations of the faithful, and the narrow winding streets of Jerusalem today, where we meet the many diverse, public and clandestine figures driving a perilous messianic agenda forward.
By unveiling truly bizarre alliances, revisiting centuries-old ghostly places and events still haunting the region, untwining complex threads of history to discern the difference between myth and prophesy, and providing a thorough explication of the religious texts underlying all of this madness in the context of the times in which they were written, Baigent presents a very different view of the past, present and future than that perpetuated by the many loose interpretations of scripture that exist today.
What are faith force multipliers? Which top brass in the US Military have fought to employ them? And why should we fear them?
Which world leader and his closest advisors belong to a secret messianic society called the Hojjateih?
What is the Chalcedon Foundation? Its founders influence on the education of U.S. children? And the correlation between its tenants, that of sharia law and the fulfillment of end-time prophesies?
The answers to these questions and others are bound to alternately shock, intrigue, mystify and enrage readers, whether they are people of faith, staunch secularists or just the curious amongst us.
