Are the end times near? Is the Rapture really just around the corner? Could Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson possibly be right? About 1 billion people among us believe, yes, absolutely.

And that means one thing: investment opportunities!

For those who are not as expertly versed in the Book of Revelation, Ellis Weiner and Barbara Davilman, authors of the bestselling Yiddish with Dick and Jane, helpfully offer both illumination and advice: What exactly is the Rapture, anyway? How is it different from the Tribulation? Who are the Antichrist, the Four Horsemen, and the 144,000 male virgins, and what do they want? And, most important, how can I make money during the 7 years of societal breakdown before Armaggedon?

Taking the familiar form of a how-to investment guide, How to Profit From the Coming Rapture instructs those readers who will certainly be left behind (Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, less ardent Protestants, and many more) on how to exploit the inevitable demise of the world in order to make a tidy profit. Sure, the rivers and seas will run with blood, locusts will swarm, mountains will move all over the place, and famine will strike. But for the five billion of us left behind, the post-Rapture world will be a time of even more unique investment opportunities.

Baker & Taylor
A whimsical guide to making the most of investment opportunities brought about by the return of Jesus offers advice on such topics as managing finances when lima beans are worth more than gold, the relationship between an angel's trumpet blowing and the downfall of golf, and what real estate to unload when the sun goes dark and the mountains shift. Original.

Book News
This tongue-in-cheek book provides advice on how to financially survive and even profit from the Christian end times. Those ascending to heaven during the rapture, of course, will not need this advice, but the Jewish authors are concerned about their fellow religionists and the rest of us. They arrange their advice according to the biblical progression of the end times (the Seven Seals, the Seven Trumpets, etc.) and, to cite but one example, describe how to market and home deliver scavenged items in an old shopping cart when plagues of locusts are keeping everyone else indoors.

A unique guide to financial security during the End Times! From the Rapture all the way through the Battle of Armageddon to the Great White Throne Judgment, this book tells you where to invest and what businesses to start during the overwhelming waves of destruction, violence, starvation, geological cataclysm, and extinction. Actually, the joke wears rather thin about halfway through the book, but it's good for some chuckles. The authors researched numerous sources on interpretations of "end times" theology, and found no two sources could agree on specifics of the events and timetables--though all agree that the Bible provides an unerring and literal presentation of these events! They decided to just follow the "Left Behind" (Tim LaHaye) version, since it's by far the most popular.
