Revelation Road: one man's journey to the heart of the Apocalypse and back again

Revelation Road: one man's journey to the heart of the Apocalypse and back again
In Revelation Road, Nick Page gets to the bottom of what this mysterious last book of the Bible is really all about. The only way to this is reckoned, was to go on a Revelation Road Trip to all those places where, 2000 years ago, fervent believers were quite literally waiting for it all to end. And yet were still here (so far). So why is that?

The author of A Nearly Infallible History of Christianity, The Tabloid Bible and Gods Dangerous Book takes you on a road trip to Patmos via the ruined cities of the seven churches of Revelation and seeks out a revelation for himself - and one or two for you. Nick explores the people and places behind Revelation, the man who wrote it, why he wrote it, who he wrote it for and what it means for us today. Nick skilfully combines history, commentary and imaginative reconstruction on the greatest journey of all time... or is it a journey to the end of time? On the way Nick Page helps you understand what this last book of the Bible has to say about heaven, hell and the mysterious if slightly scary four horsemen of the apocalypse. He looks at past prophecies of the final doom and asks why were still here... apparently. Even though the end of the world hasnt come, Nick wonders how long well have to wait and how many more conspiracy theories, films, books and sermons well have to endure while were waiting. And why are we so bothered anyway? So for an engagingly wise and wry look at why the end of the world never turns up when it's supposed to - and why it matters that we take it seriously, Revelation Road gives you the key sites from the original book, the history of apocalyptic literature, the weird, wild and wonderful truths of 2000 years of waiting for the end.
