Already, the first quarter of 2011 is a bull market for these end times predictors. RaptureReady.com - a website with a customized index predicting how close we are to the end - had its busiest February ever. And publisher Tyndale House has begun ramping up plans for new editions of its blockbuster "Left Behind" series.
"The Twelfth Imam, Joel Rosenberg's latest prophecy-related novel, is gaining momentum again after its initial release last year," Endody said. "We were pleasantly surprised to find out that Joel's Epicenter Conference in Jerusalem is totally sold out, over two months in advance of the event."
This latest wave of turmoil is prompting some pastors, like John Hagee of San Antonio, Texas, to use their websites to promote their ideas, along with links to materials for purchase.
Hagee is a popular televangelist and senior pastor of the 19,000 member Cornerstone Church. His website offers a DVD called "Financial Armageddon" for $12 and is signing up registrations for a prophesy seminar in Sacramento in April for $10.
Daniel Wojcik is an English professor at the University of Oregon and the author of "The End of the World As We Know It: Faith, Fatalism, and Apocalypse in America."
