Violent cataclysms and fiery judgment fixate the popular imagination and fill numerous holy books. For better or worse, we are obsessed with how our world will end. Morgan Freeman examines both the past and the future to determine what various faith traditions predict about the End of Days, synthesizing history, archaeology, psychology, theology, science, and personal experience to get a glimpse into our cooperate beliefs. What he learns will give him a new meaning for the word "apocalypse."
