About the Author
He was invited to write a new constitution for Canada and the proposed United States of Latin America, and he published a model constitution that could be adopted by nations everywhere. He served in the FBI for 16 years, four years as Chief of Police in Salt Lake City, and ten years as a university professor. He was a prolific writer and produced three national best sellers, The Naked Communist, The Naked Capitalist, and The Five Thousand Year Leap. Eight of his books were used as college texts, and several were translated and published in other countries.
Dr. Skousen was born in Canada, and returned to the U.S. with his family at age ten. He spent two years in Mexico, two years in England, graduated from San Bernardino College in California, and received his juris doctor degree from George Washington University Law School. He was admitted to practice law in the District of Columbia and before the District Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.
His seminars on the Constitution have been taught to several million across the U.S., and among his students were dozens of U.S. Senators and Representatives, two Supreme Court justices, and several candidates for President. He believed knowledge and understanding were key to maintaining a free country, and spent his entire adult life opening up complex issues for deeper understanding by students and audiences all around the world.
Mr. Skousen and his wife, Jewel Pitcher of San Bernardino, California, are the parents of eight children, 50 grandchildren, and more than 120 great-grandchildren.

Skousen has a newer book though, The Cleansing of America, that covers most of the same prophecies with more complete references, in more detail, that was for me, less confusing. Don't get me wrong, this book isn't confusing-but there are several events that unfold simultaneously or close together, and Skousen does a better job of telling exactly when and where these things are happening in The Cleansing of America. In Prophecy and Modern times he jumps back and forth between America and Jerusalem a few times leaving me a little uncertain of the order of some events. This book gives more detail and background on the events in Jerusalem than does The Cleansing of America, as well as the events at the opening of the Millenium AFTER Christ returns/resurrection of the just, etc. I'd recommend reading both together, but if one only has the ability to read one of these great books, I'd recommend The Cleansing of America as it was released specifically for THIS VERY time. Prophecy and Modern Times is more of an overview, and it is a good one at that. If you want more specifics, more detail, and study/discussion guides and more references to accompany a study of the prophecies of the latter days, go for his The Cleansing of America.
I feel that Skousen wanted to keep things more simplified in teaching us about his findings in the scriptures. I have found that in many of his other books he enjoys teaching his audience deeper matters based from his own opinions and testimony. However, with “Prophecy and Modern Times”, I felt he desired to show us that simplified text upon subjects can help us learn the best by setting a foundation of material that sparks our interest to learn more. Many of the subjects mentioned in this book are mentioned in another one of his writings titled “The Cleansing of America”, in which he dives into deeper ideas that he briefly mentions here in this text. So, in reading this book it has now grabbed my interest to go and continue to learn more upon the subjects he has placed before us.
This book is a fun, easy, interesting read, especially if you are interested in apocalyptic subjects from the scriptures. The subject matter that Skousen covers about the revelations of the Lord to His prophets are always precise and eventually happen greatly caught my eye. Whether someone chooses to believe the scriptures based on the Christian faith, one can see how God keeps His promises to His children here on earth when He states that something is going to happen for His own reasons. W. Cleon Skousen helps us see this in our day that God continues to work with His prophets today in revealing truths and events that are meant to happen in our day and time, as well as in our future.
