Description

From the opening chapters of the book of Genesis, the Hebrew Bible hints at the challenges that will face our species–– using the tree of the knowledge of good and evil as a symbol for the pitfall of materialism, and the tree of life the station of the Word of God. As we progress through its pages, rich detail is revealed, through its multifaceted allegories, history, hymns, and stories, which detail a further succession of Divine Messengers, right down to the present day.

Through the teachings of Jesus and the spread of Christianity, most have at least passing familiarity with Adam, Noah, Abraham, and Moses. Some might be familiar with Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and other prophets who worked within their traditions to carry forward and reinforce their teachings. These teachings and prophecies were carefully preserved and guided millions of believers for almost 2,000 years.

In our modern age, is the study of these ancient writings of interest only to believers, historians, and scholars, or could the teachings of such messengers have direct relevance to everyone alive today?

Revealed in those ancient pages is a God who declares that the end is known from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10) and that He has made it known to His servants, the prophets. The purpose of those prophets was clear, they addressed the problems of their time––idolatry and disobedience to the Mosaic Dispensation––to call the people to obedience to the Divine Covenant brought by Moses. They also foretold a time of Glory in, what was to them, the distant future – that after much tribulation their descendents would inherit the promises associated with that Covenant. Their prophetic vision reached across thousands of years, announcing an age of global peace and the unity of humankind.

Could life-changing perspectives await the reader willing to approach these prophecies with an open mind, in the light of that which has been made manifest in this modern age?

Volume 1 of The Coming of the Glory explores the prophecies found in the earlier Hebrew scriptures. Volume 2 covers the pre-exilic prophets and Volume 3 the post-exilic prophets, all within the context of ancient Israelite history.

About the Author

Eileen Maddocks has spent many years studying biblical prophecies and their importance to us today.

She wrote and self-published her first book, 1844: Convergence in Prophecy for Judaism, Christianity, Islam and the Bahá’í Faith, which explored expectations in the West of the return of Jesus Christ and in the East of the return of the Twelfth Imam, the Promised One. Out of this Islamic milieu emerged the Twin Prophets of the Bahá’í Faith, the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh, as promised in the sacred scriptures of the Hebrew Bible, as Christianity had emerged from a Jewish milieu.

Eileen discovered and accepted the Baha’i Faith in midlife and subsequently served at the Baha’i World Centre in Haifa, Israel, for 16 years in a position that required much research and writing. Upon retirement, she returned to her New England heritage and is now a researcher, editor, and writer living in the bucolic state of Vermont where billboards are banned.

She balances her cerebral, writer’s lifestyle with a serious study of classical ballet. She performed for four seasons in Ballet Vermont’s “Farm to Ballet,” a production that brings classical ballet to Vermont farm venues.

Eileen shares her home with two cats who edit her work by walking across the keyboard and trying to nudge her from writing to playing (or serving dinner).

    There are so many subjects that I would like to know more about. But, not being a scholar, when I try to read books about quantum reality, electronics, or biblical history, I’m usually left feeling confused or exhausted.
    The Coming of the Glory is different! This book talks to me about religious prophecy in such a manner that every sentence reveals something of interest and import.
    Kudos to Eileen for untangling the treads of religious prophecy as it weaves a coherent tapestry throughout the Old Testament.

  2. M. Kathryn Jewett

    Anyone wishing to understand the pathway of the Greater Plan of God should begin their search with, “The Coming of the Glory.” Maddock’s scholarly crafted story takes the reader on a journey tracing Divine Revelation from the Neolithic through the Hebrew Bible and is a perfect place to begin your search for understanding.

    Eileen Maddox in The Coming of the Glory provides the reader with a road map on understanding the journey humanity has taken in its quest to answer the questions of who we are and why we are here, from the beginnings of recorded history to today. She explores the prophecies of the Hebrew Scriptures and helps readers see through their own eyes the guidance humanity has received over the ages and how it has led us to today. it is a superbly written book, well researched and enjoyable to read. I highly recommend the Coming of the Glory to you.

  4. D & S Corbett

    This book is very well written and brings out aspects of the biblical stories we didn’t know about.
    It looks at all parts of history as we currently understand them through archeology and theology.
    We look forward to Vol. 11!!
    Well done, Eileen!

    I had no intention buying this book and only did after a conversation about Abraham led me to buy it. I’m really glad I did. It was fascinating. I had SUCH a hard time putting it aside when life called to me. Once, when I came back to it, I couldn’t find it so I started reading her second book. Equally engaging.
    There were SO many things I never read about and frankly, just didn’t know. I copied several quotes from it to use later.
    I have told many people who are interested in the progression of the Divine through the ages about it that I’m like a walking Infomercial. They are in a prominent place on my bookshelf, unlike the others I’ve read and then put away. I still refer to them.
    If you like Biblical history, she has done all the research work for you and made it easy to understand.
    No, Eileen Maddocks did not pay me to say these things (or give me the books for free).
