This book really stands the test of time. Looking back, the world clearly ended on September 11, 1988 and everything since has been an illusion. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves irony. Want more irony? Mr Whisenant died in May of 2001, just a few months before 9/11, a golden opportunity to froth about the end times again. He was so close.

All we can do now is wait for the Mayan apocalypse of 2012. Make sure to buy my upcoming end times dissertation: 12 Reasons Why You're Going to Hell Unless You Buy My Book.

When I was around 7, my parents had this book. It sat on the coffee table, scaring the bejesus out of me. I had forgotten about it, but thanks for the reminder of why I have generalized anxiety disorder.

I too was one of the idiots who bought into this hysteria in 1988. I was a naive 21 year old who put way too much faith into anything my church pastor taught. When he brought Edgar Whisenant to our church for a series of talks about the 88 reasons, I believed every word of it because my pastor believed it. As a matter of fact, belief in this book compelled my then girlfriend and I to marry much earlier than we originally had intended. We were taught that what is bound together on earth will be bound together in heaven and so we HAD to get married so we would be together after the rapture occurred. When the designated range of dates passed, I remember there being a lot of confusion and anger in the church and we ended up leaving. After several years of religious exploration dosed with much more skepticism than before, my wife and I both ended up rejecting Christianity all together. I'm not saying that his book caused us to become atheists, but it was a major catalyst for us to start thinking for ourselves about religious issues. In light of that and its novelty value now, I give it 5 stars. Oh, and we just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary!

I came to the page while researching a blog post (southernmanblog.com) on the May 21, 2011 rapture. When "88 Reasons" came out I was a first-year professor at a small, fundamentalist, profoundly conservative, Bible-thumping college. Not one professor or administrator there believed a word of this book, and the main effect was that we were all called into a meeting and given pointers by one of the psychology profs on how to effectively work with concerned students and parents. And one of the physics profs teamed with a religion prof and did a panel discussion in which they fairly convincingly dismantled most of the author's arguments from both scientific and Biblical views. Good times!
