Description of this Book

For hundreds of years seers and prophets have used the Bible's Book of Revelations to whip up hysteria and fear. The last book of the New Testament declares that all but the true believers will be wiped off the face of the earth and doomed to eternal suffering; only those who follow 'the word' will survive the coming apocalypse. Doomsday Cults reveals how cult leaders such as Charles Manson, Marshall Applewhite, David Koresh, Ervil LeBaron and David Berg declared that they were God's representative on earth and promised their followers that only through their teachings could the cult members survive doomsday. Monstrous crimes were committed in God's name and each cult experienced its own horrific Armageddon.
