Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered what the ancient prophets had to say about these modern times? Find the answer in Prophecy and Modern Times, a brief but powerful exploration into 6,000 years of prophecies about these latter days. All the ancient warnings and promises are beautifully distilled, organized, and explained for clear understanding and quick application by this generation.
As President Ezra Taft Benson said in the foreword, “Every person interested in present and future events in this war-torn world will profit from a careful perusal of these pages.”
Prophecy and Modern Times will help you interpret what ancient prophecies mean for your own life, and for the modern world. These prophets foresaw many of the complexities of the modern era, the Middle East, America, the rise of enormous economic and military powers, the stealthy corruption of nations and of personal lives, and how the second coming of Jesus Christ will finally begin a long-awaited era of peace.
Gary D. Goodwin, of the Association for Mormon Letters, said “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!”

Encouragement for the Last Days

What did you love best about Prophecy and Modern Times?

There are many books about prophecy and the end of times that are doom and gloom. Prophecy and Modern Times gave a clear picture of what will happen in the last days. The encouragement and optimism that I felt was very much needed.


What other book might you compare Prophecy and Modern Times to and why?

This book could be compared to The Cleansing of America by W. Cleon Skousen. Both are great books that give hope and encouragement as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ approaches.


Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed learning about prophecy and why it is important. My favorite section of the book was Prophecy Concerning the Millennium. I learned there are a lot of struggles but if we do not have trails we cannot realize our eternal potential. In the end the good people of the earth will win.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It certainly is a book that I want to listen to in one sitting. In fact I listened to the entire book on a three hour drive.


Any additional comments?

This audiobook is one that I will keep in my library and refer to often. It is good to freshen up on the events of the last days given by Prophets. It gives me encouragement.
