In this explosively controversial blockbuster of a book, Richard Francis knocks out the underpinnings of fundamentalism in the interpretation of the great mystical classic Revelation, the finaly book of the Bible. Revelation has nothing to do with nations, governments or calendars.
The prediction of the "end of the world," goes back in history to far before the birth of Jesus. It is not a "Christian" concept. In fact, the phrase, "end of the world" does not appear a single time in the entire original Bible!

Revelation never once mentions the "antichrist." Nor does it anywhere use the phrase, "end of the world." Francis shows how absurd is any attempt at a literal interpretation: In one scenario, for example, a sheep marries a city!

Revelation is all about your spiritual progress. By symbols, it describes the various "demons," "dragons," and "angels" that you encounter within your own mind. It is "psychodrama," a story using allegory and metaphor to describe psychological changes. Revelation is all about you! In crisp, clear writing, with no "filler," Francis describes how we have all "fallen" from "grace," supreme oneness with God and creation. He then shows how we are all on our way back to the "Garden of Pleasure ("Eden") in the heart, the wild rollercoaster ride of life lurches from highest "heaven" to deepest "hell." but at its Center stands God or Love, ready to rescue us and bring us forever into the Light!(Publisher).
