The Venture of Islam, Volume 3: The Gunpowder Empires and Modern Times

Product Description

The Venture of Islam has been honored as a magisterial work of the mind since its publication in early 1975. In this three-volume study, illustrated with charts and maps, Hodgson traces and interprets the historical development of Islamic civilization from before the birth of Muhammad to the middle of the twentieth century. This work grew out of the famous course on Islamic civilization that Hodgson created and taught for many years at the University of Chicago.

In this concluding volume of The Venture of Islam, Hodgson describes the second flowering of Islam: the Safavi, Timuri, and Ottoman empires. The final part of the volume analyzes the widespread Islamic heritage in today’s world.

“This is a nonpareil work, not only because of its command of its subject but also because it demonstrates how, ideally, history should be written.”—The New Yorker

Islam in the End Times

Product Description
Since the beginning of modern history, experts have been trying to predict when the end of the world will come. They have created terms such as the antiChrist, the 666 Mark of the Beast, End Times, and Rapture common in society, but they may have overlooked the most important ancient prophecy that ties Islam, todays current events, and the worlds response to the exact timing of the end times. In his shocking and revealing book, Islam in the End Times, Islamic relations expert and scholar Ellis Skolfield unlocks the key to understanding all the end time prophecies and Islams role in bringing them about. Ellis expertly maps ancient prophecies with current events to demonstrate that the current Islamic aggression against the world in general and Israel specifically relates to the exact year of the beginning of the end. Skolfield reveals the most shocking prophecy of all, the key to understanding all other end time prophesies. It is a mathematical number that provides the exact year of what is called the Abomination of Desolation — a cataclysmic event in the timeline of human history. In Islam in the End Times, Skolfield statistically documents where the world is in relationship to the end times, and what Islams role is now and in the future. Skolfield uses mathematics and ancient prophecies to demonstrate how Islam is involved in the prophecy called the Abomination of Desolation, the key to unlocking end time prophecies.
