Millions of Americans take the Bible at its word and turn to like-minded local ministers and TV preachers, periodicals and paperbacks for help in finding their place in God's prophetic plan for humankind. And yet, influential as this phenomenon is in the worldview of so many, the belief in biblical prophecy remains a popular mystery, largely unstudied and little understood. "When Time Shall Be No More" provides an in-depth look at the subtle, pervasive ways in which prophecy belief shapes contemporary American thought and culture, tracing the origins and development of the strange complex of biblical exegesis and journalistic manipulation.
