Are the end times near? Is the Rapture really just around the corner? Could Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson possibly be right? About 1 billion people among us believe, yes, absolutely.

And that means one thing: investment opportunities!

For those who are not as expertly versed in the Book of Revelation, Ellis Weiner and Barbara Davilman, authors of the bestselling Yiddish with Dick and Jane, helpfully offer both illumination and advice: What exactly is the Rapture, anyway? How is it different from the Tribulation? Who are the Antichrist, the Four Horsemen, and the 144,000 male virgins, and what do they want? And, most important, how can I make money during the 7 years of societal breakdown before Armaggedon?

Taking the familiar form of a how-to investment guide, HOW TO PROFIT FROM THE COMING RAPTURE instructs those readers who will certainly be left behind (Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, less ardent Protestants, and many more) on how to exploit the inevitable demise of the world in order to make a tidy profit. Sure, the rivers and seas will run with blood, locusts will swarm, mountains will move all over the place, and famine will strike. But for the five billion of us left behind, the post-Rapture world will be a time of even more unique investment opportunities.

About the Author:

Co-authors of the bestselling Yiddish with Dick and Jane, Ellis Weiner has been an editor of National Lampoon, a columnist for Spy, and a contributor to many magazines, including The New Yorker and the New York Times Magazine, and Barbara Davilman is a writer for television and movies. They live in Los Angeles.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. Taking on the religious, political and consumer force of the modern End Times movement, comic authors Weiner and Davilman (Yiddish with Dick and Jane) turn out their sharpest satire yet with a hysterical step-by-step financial guide for those "left behind" by the Rapture-when, according to literal interpretations of the New Testament, the faithful will be whisked bodily to Heaven by Jesus. The authors chart their way through the Rapture and Tribulation, using actual bible verses and scholarship (Tim LaHaye, bestselling author of the Left Behind series, is quoted often) to chronicle the series of plagues that make up the end of the world (war, famine, a fiery mountain in the sea, invisible horse-shaped locusts), and their considerate plans for making money in the aftermath. At times laugh-out-loud funny, this skewering volume is also a sobering look at the beliefs of many Americans, but Weiner and Davilman employ irreverence without insult, handling the highly-charged topic with a surprisingly light touch.
