The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

By Clifton Ross on August 24, 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
I suspect Hooper could have done better than this, but he didn't. Given his education, he could have cited his sources and gone beyond the superficial treatment he offers of an overview of eschatological perspectives from various religious traditions. But he didn't. This book, unfortunately, is a "popular" "easy to read" sensationalist perspective (complete with sensationalist computer generated cartoon/images filling every third or fourth page of the book: you know, "filler") that I suspect Hooper wrote over the course of a few days off the top of his head. It's, unfortunately, not worth the price since it offers the illusion of information without offering the information. That is to say, Hooper's biases come through (especially in the section on Islam, which is extremely one-sided and prejudiced) and information is filtered through them. Without his offering sources we're dependent on his word for it, and personally, I don't think we can rely on his word. Unless you're a scholar who has a thorough knowledge of the ancient sources on eschatology, you won't know how to assess the accuracy of the information. But if you're a scholar with such knowledge, you'll find this book too superficial and elementary to be worth your time. Either way, don't waste your time or money on this book. Try Norman Cohn's "Cosmos, Chaos and the World to Come" or another reputable (and substantiated) work.
