About this product
- DescriptionVen. Anne Catherine Emmerich prophesied that toward the End of Time there would arise several men who would unlock the mysteries of the Apocalypse. Reading of The Book of Destiny will give you strong indication that Fr. Kramer is one of those men. Claiming that we, at this point in history, are in the Ninth Chapter of these prophecies, the author establishes a chrological interpretation of St. John's book of Revelations, which shows the Apocalypse to be basically a prophetic history of the Catholic Church. With little erudition, Fr. Kramer considers the wise opinions of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church and other learned writers on the subject. Outstanding about his own interpretations, however, is the author's explanation of the symbols in light of their use and meaning throughout the Bible - Old and New Testaments. Thus, giving his readers the keys to understand this, the most mysterious book of the Bible, while making his analysis. Under his approach, the many strange symbols shine clear: The Four Horses, the Seven Trumpets, Stars fallen from Heaven, the Seven Thunders, the Four Winds, the Woman Clothed with the Sun, the Beast, the 200 Million Horsemen, the Scarlet Harlot, Babylon the Great, the Battle of Armageddon, the New Jerusalem and so forth. Frightening is the revelation that we are on the verge of the most climatic events foretold by St. John. Exciting, exhilarating, reveling are bland adjectives to describe this epochal book.
