Strange, coincidence. I was actually GIVEN this book in our local church as part of a collection of books that were being given away. I know now that there is no way that if they knew what this book contained woudl it be given away like this. And the coincidence? I was reading, in detail, "Fantasy Island", you know, the book about the Blair administration. another book about gross delusion, deception, and Fraud.
Coincidence my foot.
I have to say that at the moment, it's as though hell has been turned upside down and banged on the table top,and eveything has fallen out and is all over the place. Eveything conceivable scam and con job is out there (especially in the public arena) and the subject is so huge that I could write about this until I was making spelling mistakes and getting tendonitus and I would only be scratching the surface. THis book really does identify critical and clear source texts and lays out EXACTLY what the Bible says about what is going in these last days.
I strongly recommend it. AS for the abridged edition, just throw it away and get the actual book, you won't regret it.
