Throughout its history, America has been exposed to a multitude of chilling theories about "what's really going on behind the scenes." Many believe that the world economy and its political and social systems are controlled by a few sinister men belonging to secret organizations that seek to rule the earth. A host of Christian teachers have tapped into conspiracy theories to design their own end times scenarios. But how do their prophetic schemes hold up against Scripture, logic, and history? In Selling Fear, historian Gregory Camp offers a sane examination of conspiracy theories that have cropped up over the years and exposes the false teachings and assumptions that have instilled fear in the uninformed. As the new millennium dawns, and end-times paranoia becomes more apparent, Selling Fear will help readers discern the truth amid a barrage of errant teaching, providing a defense against prophetic beliefs that are grounded only in ignorance and fear.
