I just caught an add for an interesting book in a Vietnamese newspaper published around Southern California. Its entitled "Future of England, America, and Russia according to Biblical Prophecy. " - I have no idea about the background of the author (obviously he is Catholic, and not a hippie Novus Ordo) or what the book's contents contain.
The basic idea of the ad was that the author compiled extracts from the Book of Job (which he proposes contains prophecy concerning Communism) and the Prophetical books to illustrate how he thinks the near future will play out. He says that God will use Russia as "an iron rod" to punish the West for its depravity and apostasy. He writes that England, America, France, Germany and Italy will be completely destroyed and "wiped off the map" by Russia (he also adds that God specifically chose Russia to be the instrument of His wrath because the Russians are the fiercest and cruelest race on Earth - he continues that after Russia has finished her goal, God will destroy the Communists and not a single Communist will be left alive - he also adds that the Communists will then receive their reward, "the bottom of Hell"). After will follow a period of peace followed by the Second Coming, etc.
He claims that all this can be predicted with relative certainty down to the "hour, day, month, and year" and writes that all this is supported with Biblical prophecy.
Thoughts? It seems like a lot of the stuff here on CathInfo. Should I buy the book? It is not expensive.
The Vietnamese title is "Tuong Lai ba nuoc Anh-My-Nga trong Sam Kinh Thanh" and the author is Truong Tien Dat.
He held some sort of government position in the Republic of South Viet Nam I think.
