Many moons ago, I was absolutely certain that I would not live to see 1980. A leading prophecy expert wrote a book titled Jesus Is Coming Soon, and in it a whole series of signs--from the alignment of planets to the Common Market--heralded the certain return of Christ in the year 1979. The man is still writing prophecy books and, worse still, those books are still being read--more eagerly, perhaps, than the texts he supposedly exegetes.
