Highly readable and wide ranging, this fascinating account is the definitve work on the much debated and controversial subject of prophecy. What do the fall of Troy, the birth of Christ, and the Soviet Union have in common? Prophets have predicted these events, and here is fresh insight into these ever-intriguing, ever-amazing seers. The comprehensive coverage extends from priests and stargazers to the Oracle at Delphi to modern attempts to find the future in dreams and horoscopes. Did the famous diviners draw only on their own intuitions or did they have supernatural gifts that allowed them to make uncannily accurate forecasts? Among the seers depicted are the biblical prophets Elijah, Isaiah and Jeremiah; Merlin; Nostradamus; and writers such as Dante, Milton, and Blake.
