In light of yesterday’s post on Doomsday Preppers I thought this would make a good followup.
I know nothing about the author, apart from the author description on the website where the book is being sold. Apparently, he’s not your run of the mill crazy guy living in his basement. If the author bio is true, he was educated at Duke, holds a doctorate in education, and is a department head at the University of Kentucky.
So there’s that.
According to the book’s description,
This book will actually provide practical help tips and strategies on how you can survive the tribulation period. In this book you will learn, by the midway point of the tribulation period, 50% of the world’s population will likely be dead. But it doesn’t have to be you or one of your loved one’s. You will learn that you and your family will likely spend at least half the tribulation period on the run as fugitives with little more than the clothes on your back and what you can carry. You will learn what advanced skills you will need to acquire (and where the best places are to get them), based on tribulation period events, if you are to survive this most horrible time period. In this book, you will find that just building a basement shelter (in your home), storing mountains of food and water, medical supplies, and bunkering down for 7 years is not only a poor survival strategy, but totally unrealistic for this time period. You will also encounter various supernatural plagues, natural disasters and wars that will claim the lives of the majority of the global population…..This book was created to provide a survival guide through the tribulation period for those left behind. This isn’t just your typical survival guide; it’s a survival guide based on Biblical tribulation period events. My goal in writing this book is to provide Biblical direction as to what might happen following the rapture, the order in which events may come, and an approximate timeline as to when each event may take place. This Bible based guide gives you timely advice straight from Jesus Himself regarding this time of trouble.”
Personally, I wasn’t aware that Jesus gave out post-apocalyptic survival advice or ever even mentioned the “Tribulation”. Of course, I haven’t read the entire Left Behind series, so that probably disqualifies me from having an authoritative opinion on end times prophecy.
Anyway, if you’re interested in picking up Mr. Malone’s book you can get it for free here or if you’re one of those wild and crazy kids with an iPhone or iPad you can tuck this epic survival guide in your pocket and pull it out at parties for what I’m sure would be interesting conversations.
A big thanks to Dave for sharing this amazing piece of literature with us.
