The End Of The World
An Annotated Bibliography
Auteur: Tom McIver


This bibliography contains annotations of close to 3500 works written over many centuries about the end of the world, predominantly but not entirely from a Christian perspective. The books, pamphlets, websites and selected media cover a variety of eschatological beliefs - from the numerous fundamentalist scenarios to fringe beliefs - and include such topics as the Tribulation, the Rapture, the Millennium, Armageddon, the Second Coming, the Antichrist, and the Apocalypse. Works on other major religions (Islam, Judaism), the myths of popular cultures (Mayan prophecies, the Teutonic Gotterdammerung and Ragnarok), UFO, occult and psychic theories (Heaven's Gate, Nostradamus), and secular theories (Year 2000, millennium computer bug) can also be found. The work is in four parts (plus indexes). Entries in the pre-1800 part are arranged chronologically beginning with the Book of Enoch in the second century BC. Other entries are arranged alphabetically within the three chronological subdivisions of 1800-1910, 1910-1970, and post-1970. All include bibliographic information and annotations regarding format, type of work, theme, the author's background, the category of eschatological theories espoused, distinctive or notable characteristics, the intended readership, and the significance of the work. There are cross references to works by the same author. An introduction describes major types of eschatological beliefs, outlines basic Fundamentalist end-of-the-world scenarios, summarizes Biblical sources, and explains important terms, concepts and relationships among sources. The work is indexed by author, title and subject.
