Swenson veers away from emotional appeals by analytically showing how the economy, man’s bent toward evil, and destructive resources including biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons fit into the overall scheme of possible impending calamity. However, Swenson doesn’t leave readers without hope. He addresses man’s fallen state but discusses in depth God’s provision for escape. Instead of a shouting doomsday, this book is a call to live in a state of readiness-a suggestion even the most optimistic Christians should heed.
