Review

This release of "Prophecy and Modern Times" is timely, not only in its relevant content but also in the message it brings to the table. Skousen reveals his brilliance in his organization of such a monumentally complicated task. He suggests how to interpret prophecy, tells us its purpose and our responsibility to understand it. Skousen is masterful!

About the Author

W. Cleon Skousen is best remembered as a popular author, speaker and teacher who lectured in every state and province in North America, and in more than 60 countries world-wide. He was a student of history and a scholar of law, specializing in the principles of Freedom, the U.S. Constitution, economics, and ancient history and scriptures.

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.

Format: Paperback
I loved reading this, and I also could not put it down. The book is divided into three parts 1. Prophecy Concerning America, 2. Prophecy Concerning Palestine, 3.Prophecy Concerning the Millenium. Each section is divided into smaller sections, each under it's own subtitle/subject. These are very short sections and made it easy for me to read a little here, and a little there as my children would allow-which also made it easy to think on one small piece at a time.

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.

Using modern methods/examples, Cleon Skousen helps you want to be a better person -- who works to show your family how they/you can be happier in your life. I have not finished the book but it is NOT a fast read. BUT IT IS WORTH THE TIME YOU WILL INVEST.

This book, not only recommended by Ezra Taft Benson, is a great resource in understanding scripture and prophecies to a beginner of learning about the Second Coming. I suggest everyone to read this piece of work to begin there journey in understanding God and what is to come in these modern times, but also begin to understand Isaiah better.

I have always been a fan of W. Cleon Skousen's work. This book about prophecy in modern days and in ancient times is a simple yet powerful source of information about three main subjects that he covers: prophecies concerning America, Palestine, and the coming Millennium of Jesus Christ's reign on earth. I have done some personal research within many of the subjects that he covers within this selection of his writings, but I always learn something more from Skousen.

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.

This wonderful book puts into layman's language what has been prophesied for the last days before and after the second coming of Jesus Christ. It cross references what the Lord has revealed through His prophets for our day and time. All of the plan has been revealed in the scriptures and this book makes it simple to know what the prophecies are. I refer to it frequently.

I read the book to help me understand and compare what is happening now in the world to what will happen prior to the second coming. It answered a lot of my questions and gave me some semblance of peace relieving my anxieties to a certain extent.

I couldn't put it down after I started reading it. Everything is footnoted and I got so much more out of my scriptures! (Of course I felt a bit sheepish for missing some pretty simple things too.) I wanted to go out and buy it for everyone I knew who cares about modern day prophecies.

W. Cleon Skousan has an engaging way of providing wonderful context to prophetic scriptures that clarifies these amazing scriptures in ways that are truly amazing. He has a wonderful writing style that guides the reader clearly through some of the more challenging prophetic scriptures that makes this book difficult to put down. Be forewarned, however, that knowing what these scriptures mean can have a chilling impact on the reader who honestly considers the spiritual state of mankind in general in our present day. A remarkable book.
