Much has been written about the imminent return of Jesus Christ. But what will our world be like if He tarries for 10, 100, or 1000 more years? This story is a view of the post-apocalyptic world of our distant future, as present-day political and social currents are extrapolated to their logical conclusions. It looks at the events of today, and predicts that they are the shadows of the things that will be, as Ebeneezer Scrooge inquired of the spirit. Charles Dickens, in A Christmas Carol, said it best: Men's courses will foreshadow certain ends, to which, if persevered in, they must lead. But if the courses be departed from, the ends will change. THE HISTORY OF OUR FUTURE is a plea for western civilization to depart from its present courses. One of the characters in this post-apocalyptic vision is an historic old house that presently exists in our country. It has witnessed much during its existence, and will participate in great events which will change the world of the people of this far-away time as they learn the wisdom of their ancients, that Resistance to Tyranny is Obedience to God.
