Prophecies: 4,000 Years of Prophets, Visionaries, and Predictions
From the diviners consulted by Chinese emperors to modern visions of catastrophe, this overview of prophecy encompasses 4,000 years of world history. It’s a fascinating anthology of amazing stories—including clairvoyant dreams about the sinking of the Titanic. Find out whether past visions of the future have turned out to be accurate, and trace the continuity of the prophetic tradition from ancient shamans and soothsayers through Egyptian dream analysis, Greek oracles and Roman auguries, messianic visionaries, Aztec prophecies of cataclysms, Nostradamus’s “Centuries,” the futurism of H. G. Wells, and beyond.
