The End of the World: What Catholics Believe



My latest work, The End of the World: What Catholics Believe, has just been published by The Catholic Truth Society (CTS), the publishers to the Holy See in the United Kingdom. It is yet to be made available on Amazon, but can already be purchased directly through the CTS website itself (I'll let readers know when it becomes available on Amazon as well). This CTS booklet traces the development of Catholic eschatology through history, and examines why some interpretations of Scripture in relation to the end-times were rejected by the Early Church, whilst outlining the position that was eventually embraced by Catholicism. In particular, it addresses the central problems posed by millenarianism in its many modern forms, and illustrates in some detail why this position is forcefully condemned by the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
This short text covers a wide range of topics, ranging from the end-times literature of the Bible, to discussing the errors of Joaichim de Fiore and the Spiritual Franciscans, before moving on to the modern "Age of Mary", which was anticipated by St. Louis de Montfort during the 18th century.
The CTS blog Catholic Compass, has kindly posted an interview with myself, and an extract of the booklet itself:

Our summer titles are now available covering a wide and varied range of subjects. Here on CTS Compass, we have been speaking to some of the authors of those titles to find out a bit more about them and their books. Today we publish an interview with blogger, expert and first-time CTS author Emmett O’Regan on his book, The End of the World: What Catholics Believe.

Hi Sherry, CTS don't seem to do any books on Kindle for some reason. I think they need to get up to date in this regard. It makes it a lot cheaper for all concerned, and would reach a wider audience.

Thanks Michael! Hope you enjoy it!

I have read the extract and am looking forward to reading the rest of it. (I prefer Kindle because of its instant availability more than anything else, but I can wait for it via snail mail if I must!)

Thanks Greg!
Yeah, Kindle versions are a lot easier - I think CTS are missing out on the popularity of this.
I've just got a copy of your book myself. It looks great! I'm looking forward to reading it!
