The Eleventh Hour: The spiritual crisis of the modern world in the light of tradition and prophecy

Availability: Ready to download

Martin Lings gives us 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. The Eleventh Hour has its roots in the parable of the laborers in the vineyard. The following questions run through the book: why did the latecomers receive the same wage as tho Martin Lings gives us 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. The Eleventh Hour has its roots in the parable of the laborers in the vineyard. The following questions run through the book: why did the latecomers receive the same wage as those who had laboured throughout the heat of the day? Why were they the first to be paid? And why, did Christ say 'And the last shall be first?' These questions are answered in the light of the concept of the Millennium, which is clearly the equivalent of the new Golden Age of the next cycle of time, and which is found in all three monotheistic religions, bringing them into line, in this respect, with Hinduism, Greco-Roman Antiquity and Buddhism.

    I was lucky to hear Martin lecture in the lounge of a Retreat House in the South of England a year or two before he died. His talk was on the representation of the after-life in Islam. I picked up this book at that meeting and read it with great interest. Martin Lings was a scholar who knew C.S. Lewis well and took his degree from Oxford. He converted to Islam and was one of its most eloquent proponents (in its Sufi form) in the UK.

In the Eleventh Hour Martin looks at the possibility we are in 'the End times'. His conclusion, backed up with an impressive collection of predictions from various sources, given at the close of his book, is that we are. He was no fool nor given to empty prognostications. He was a man of deep faith. For those reaons this book is worthy of serious consideration.

    الحديث عن الاستقراطية والثيوقراطية والأوتوقراطية كأنظمة حكم قابلة للتنفيذ في القرن الواحد والعشرين أصابني بالغثيان. بعض فصوله نقد لا بأس به لتعالي الحضارة الغربية على كل ماهو ميتافيزيقي. ولكن معظمه غثاء أحوى.
