ABILENE, Texas, Nov. 13, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- How will the end of the world arrive? Fire and brimstone? Zombie apocalypse? If you believe the Mayan Long Count calendar, the end will come Dec. 21 of this year. But if you believe the book of Revelation, the exact date and time are unknown. Readers with questions about the end times can turn to the latest book by Bob Hostetler, "How to Survive the End of the World," which explores an ancient apocalyptic vision -- the Revelation of Jesus Christ to the Apostle John -- in a fresh, invigorating way.

"St. John's Revelation accurately read has enormous potential for defeating the fear and anxiety that is so prevalent these days,' says Eugene Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College. "Read this way, everything going on in the world is understood from a center in God's revelation in Jesus in the presence of worshipping Christians."

"How to Survive the End of the World" will be released Nov. 13 by Leafwood Publishers and will be available at all major bookstores.

THE BOOK
Instead of arcane theories and timelines, "How to Survive the End of the World" approaches the two-thousand-year-old revelation of "the end times" the way it was meant to be received -- as a survivor's guide: an encouraging and equipping message that will prepare readers for the end . . . whenever it comes. Unlike most approaches to what many consider a confusing and frightening book, "How to Survive the End of the World" will bless, inform, and will make reader's lives better, fuller, and richer.
