Harold Camping, the broadcaster and author, who has predicted that May 21, 2011 is Judgment Day when God will take the 'true believers' to heaven and inflict a series of major natural disasters on the world, published a book fully explaining his views over three years ago.
The book entitled We Are Almost there! (See below) which has been made freely available online is meant to warn as many people as possible about the abundant biblical evidence that the end of the world is almost here.
In the book, Camping places the judgment day prediction as the end of a timeline of history.
In one chapter, Camping shows how he derived the May 21.
Is Our Understanding of the Timeline of History Accurate?
Beginning on May 21, 2011 he says all of the true believers are to be caught up (raptured) to be forever with Christ. It is also on that day that the Day of Judgment begins for all of the unsaved.
He then quotes a passage in the bible, saying the calamities begin with a great earthquake such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake and so great.
In the next five months The Battle of Armageddon will take place, he says.
Whereas this five-month period will be an enormous horror story for those who have not been raptured, it will be a time of great joy and wonder for those who are raptured, he adds.
The book includes detailed numeric explanations and interpretations of the bible.
