Is it the end of the world as we know it?  The ancient Mayans were expert astronomers, and their advanced calendar cycles end on December 21, 2012. This has spurred worldwide speculation that 12/21/12 will be a catastrophic day of apocalypse for the entire globe. The doomsday scenarios include destructive solar storms, massive earthquakes, a polar shift of the earth’s magnetic fields, and total annihilation. Missing from all the furor is a biblical perspective. Bestselling author and prophecy expert Mark Hitchcock examines the following questions: Why December 21, 2012? Can we trust the Mayan alarm clock? Does the Bible say anything about 2012? What signs will tell us that Armageddon is near? This audio provides a fascinating survey of both the historical past and the prophetic future.  Insert disc 4 into your PC to access bonus materials.
