Crawford Gribben's new book is definitely worth mentioning here at The Burn. Writing the Rapture - Prophecy Fiction in Evangelical America is available here as a preview on GoogleBooks.
I blogged about his earlier book on the same subject here, so the new one has been added to my Amazon wish list.
I was talking to someone last night who is convinced that due to his meteoric rise, his undeniable charisma, and his influence in what is being reported as the first steps towards a global government and one-world currency, that Barack Obama is the Antichrist (if you Google it you'll get 388,000 returns). And here's an article on the subject from that goofy evangelical conspiracy rag the Financial Times. I've also noticed a real upsurge in dispensational prophecy at mission halls across the country.
We live in interesting times. > Buy the book here on Amazon.co.uk
