Catholic Weekly, Sydney-Elijah in Jerusalem

I intentionally wanted my readers to return to the world with refreshed eyes, not with any thought that they had received yet another end-times prediction. Yet the book presents a warning.

When the foretold events actually occur, they will be experienced at ground level by all kinds of people, in a variety of subjective ways.
