A new thought-provoking book by Ohio biblical scholar, Danny W. Snapp, urges Christians to pay attention, that God has taken control and his prophecies will come to pass. America in Prophecy and the Apocalypse has been called "the most accurate and detailed interpretation ever written of the King James version of the Bible." And Snapp speaks from the heart.
"To know the ending, one must first know the beginning. Many churches today have turned their teachings into fables and myths, they've lost their way in truth ad the true meaning of God's word."
The author reveals these meanings throughout the book in chapters dealing with subjects such as the Apocalypse, the Seven Seals, the Four Beasts, the Rise of the Antichrist, and Armageddon. He asks Who are Satan, and Jesus of Nazareth, and plumbs the Mystery Babylon.
Of the dozens of books dealing with these subjects, Snapp's stands out. It is different. America in Prophecy and the Apocalypse does not predict the future, nor theorize about events to come; it emphasizes the present. The author calls on Scripture never before used, such as the Book of Esdras, taken from his grandfather's 1876 Bible.
Jesus said, "When you see these things coming to pass, this will be the beginning of the sorrows." Snapp believes that when the twin towers fell, it was the beginning of those sorrows.

A child of the Depression, Danny W. Snapp grew up in Pullman, Washington. From the age of 11, he became deeply rooted in the Christian life. Through the years, he was a member of the Pentecostal Church and the Assembly of God, later becoming a licensed minister and evangelist in the Church of God out of Cleveland, Tennessee.
His fascination with biblical prophecy started him on an independent search to learn the truth, leading to a study of ancient biblical history that has spanned eighteen years.
According to the Bible, "to know the ending, one must first know the beginning." Snapp believes that "many churches today have turned their teachings into fables and myths, have lost their way in truth and the true meaning of God's word." For this reason, he answered his calling with America in Prophecy and the Apocalypse.
