Preparing for the end - a vademecum for the apocalypse
The next Armageddon is coming; there’s no doubt about it. But when exactly? We’ll need to choose a soundtrack, too, as we queue for the Rapture. What are the entry criteria for the Kingdom of Heaven on Judgment Day and what torments await those who can’t fulfill them? How do you say »It wasn’t me; honestly, I didn’t do it!« in Aramaic? How do you recognize the Antichrist and why does he have such funny eyes? Death, where is thy scythe, and how is it that scores of latter-day doom-mongers and pre-emptive suicide sects manage to lure their gullible acolytes to an early grave when the prophets have been proven mistaken so many times before? All these questions are addressed and resolved in Florian Werner’s definitive manual. He guides us through the prophecies of the apocalypse and other dark and gloomy scriptures, explains the eschatological mysticism encrypted in numerology and animal symbolism, and gives us the wherewithal to get to grips with the bewildering rhetoric and mystifying formulae enshrouding our impending annihilation. If you entrust yourself to this book and Nikolaus Heidelbach’s eerily appropriate and stunning illustrations, you’ll be perfectly prepared for the last trumpet call. An ideal gift for the pessimist in your life – and for anyone who enjoys a story with an unhappy ending.
