Battle with Islamic nations amply predicted,
This review is from: Nostradamus: Countdown to Apocalypse (Paperback)
I bought this book last year, and amongst the things that impressed me, was the large amount of predictions of battles between the Arabic/Islamic nations and the West. That was last year...
I recommend this book, because of the author's serious and scholarly approach to Nostradamus. The author takes great pains to explain HOW and WHY he translates the old and peculiar French used by Nostradamus, and the geography of his times (when the U.S.A. didn't even exist yet), to the current day. The author also never denies the difficulty of interpreting.
In summary, I liked the book, because it takes translating and interpreting Nostradamus serious.
However, do we have the stomach for what lies ahead according to these predictions...? But wasn't the Apocalypse, to which reference is made in the title, written at least a thousand years before, in the Bible? And in many other religous texts, even the Koran, for that matter?
So why are we still surprised?
