Summary
Prophets of the Apocalypse looks at various groups and leaders and tells why they are dangerous. It reminds and warns readers that it is all too easy to succumb to the influences of the new messiahs as they overemphasize subjective religious experience, spiritualize issues to justify their actions, make confusing and inflated promises of fellowship, manipulate through emotion rather than substance, and encourage others to "just believe" rather than think critically.
