There is great hope and encouragement that come from studying the prophets and their prophecies about our day. Their inspiring messages give direction that point the way for anyone struggling or discouraged in these difficult and cloudy times.
Prophecy and Modern Times is an arranged collection of prophecies from both ancient and modern prophets. A foreword by President Ezra Taft Benson sets the stage. Learn how to interpret and understand prophecy. Learn its purpose in your own life. Next, read about prophecies concerning America and Palestine, and see how ancient prophets foresaw events that we are living through right now.
Lastly, read about the great prophecies of the return of Jesus Christ and how he will usher in a thousand years of peace, the great Millennium.
Within these covers W. Cleon Skousen has brought together prophecies bearing on modern times, which he discusses in an uncompromising and forthright manner. Every person interested in present and future events in this war-torn world will profit from a careful perusal of these pages.
~ President Ezra Taft Benson
This release of “Prophecy and Modern Times” is timely, not only in its relevant content but also in the message it brings to the table. Skousen reveals his brilliance in his organization of such a monumentally complicated task. He suggests how to interpret prophecy, tells us its purpose and our responsibility to understand it. Skousen is masterful!
