Author: Daniel J. Gansle
Publisher: Infinity Publishing
By now, we've heard all kinds of conflicting beliefs and opinions on what will become of mankind, the planet and life as we know it after December 21, 2012. The author, Daniel J. Gansle, is well educated in the area of Mayan culture, his university degree is in Cultural Anthropology with a concentration in Mesoamerican studies. He participated in a show on Mayan prophecy for the History Channel's documentary of 2009, Nostradamus Effect. Having viewed this documentary, I was especially looking forward to the more indepth research and interpretation I was certain would be in this book. I was definitely not disappointed by my high expectations of this book. In fact, I found it to be even more detailed, well written and fascinating than I could possibly have anticipated.
The book is divided into sections. The first section breaks down the background of the Mayans, giving the novice in the study of Mayan culture a broad base of understanding, yet also manages to share information that even those with some background in Mayan studies may be unaware of. The instruction offered to understand the Mayan Codices is exceptional, possibly the best I've seen. The next section, Prophecy, contains an outstanding explanation of New Age Movements to include harmonic convergence, psychic vision, channeling, astrology, numerology, UFOs, crop circles and more, each increasingly fascinating. This section also details the predictions of Nostradamus, galactic alignment, Planet X/Nibiru, pole shifts, timewave zero and more. The section that covers scriptual prophecy is very well done and complete, easy to understand and clarifying many common misconceptions.Read more ›
I knew Gansle would deliver a thoughtful and knowledgeable text. I'd seen him interviewed as an expert in History channel investigation and heard some of his radio appearances. These books do not disappoint.
I am not a bible scholar, but I shared the books with someone who was. He was also impressed with the books and we agreed they were suitable for people regardless of their knowledge of history and verse.
Major Pet Peeve #1:
The first pet peeve that really bothered me is the font: 1) the font type should be different; 2) it is too light; 3) the font size should be bigger; and 4) it should be darker! letters are a little too hard to distinguish especially if you have eye problems like I do. Having a larger and darker font would have made reading more enjoyable. Instead I found myself having to put the book closer to my face. This is my opinion. Other readers may not have a problem with the fonts.
Major Pet Peeve #2:
The second pet peeve that annoyed me is when Mr. Gansle writes "The Bible is regarded amongst many scholars as the most complex and accurate prophetic text in the world." I highly disagree with this statement vehemently.
Let me start by saying why I don't believe in the Bible as a prophetic source--especially the Book of Revelation which ALL Christians such as Mr. Gansle base their end-of-world apocalyptic beliefs on--as the "accurate prophetic text in the world".Read more ›
