Apocalypse Survival Guide – my comments (updated)

Apocalypse Survival Guide for Christians

Notice the title. This book is written from a Christian point of view. The basis for action or inaction in attempting to survive the Apocalypse, and with a better quality of life, is the love of God and the love of neighbor as self. This principle underlies all of the practical considerations discussed in this book. Other survival guides are available, but they have a secular point of view.

This book does not take a ‘survivalist’ point of view; the approach is not to barricade yourself in a remote location with years worth of canned goods and a whole bunch of guns. Instead, the book approaches this subject with the intention of helping people to deal with the severe events of the tribulation while still remaining an active part of society.

“Consider the relatively ordinary natural disaster (which was not a part of the Apocalypse) that occurred on 11 March 2011 in Japan: an earthquake followed by a tsunami. Over a million persons lost electrical power and running water. The local stores quickly ran out of food and closed. Fuel suddenly became scarce. A large portion of a first world nation with a well-developed technological society suddenly became like a third world nation. Take away electrical power, running water, food, fuel and local commerce and any area suddenly becomes destitute. Now consider that the events of the Apocalypse are much greater, and affect a much larger area. People will need to have their own sources of food and water and other supplies, or they will have none.”

I’ve now updated the web page for the book, with my comments and/or a quote for each chapter: Apocalypse Survival Guide for Christians
