Since the beginning of human history, people have been asking questions about the end of the world or, in Catholic terminology, the Last Things. As we approached the year 2000, many people were asking disturbing questions with great urgency. Is history coming to an end? Will a nuclear disaster ruin the world we know? Will pollution destroy all life on our planet? Are we approaching the End Times? Throughout the United States, this fascination with the end of the world can be seen in the phenomenal commercial success of the Left Behind series which has sold well over 55 million copies since 1997. At a time when many are tossed to and fro and blown about by every wind of doctrine, by people's trickery, by their craftiness in deceitful scheming (Ephesians 4:14), Father Wales offers a hopeful and uplifting approach to Catholic teaching on death, judgment, heaven, and hell, as well as the confusion many people have about the end of the world and the second coming of Christ. The Church's teaching about puzzling passages, the meaning of the dragon, the beast, 666, the Antichrist, Armageddon, and more found in the Book of Revelation are outlined and explained in clear and concise terms. Throughout, Father Wales emphasizes the hope and promise of justice, peace, and love that is given to us all in the Resurrection of Jesus.
