The Eleventh Hour by Martin Lings
|Title||The Eleventh Hour|
|Language||English, Spanish, and French|
Martin Lings gives us from the outset powerful reasons for believing that we have now reached a point in time from which the end -- whatever that may mean -- is already in sight without being immediately imminent. In other words, we are now at an hour which is neither the tenth nor the twelfth. He argues that what Judaism, Christianity and Islam call the end of the world can be understood in the same non-absolute way. The concept of the Millenium, which is clearly the equivalent of the new Golden Age of the next cycle of time, is to be found in all three monotheistic religions, bringing them into line, in this respect, with Hinduism, Greco-Roman antiquity, and Buddhism.
