An investigation of men and women who claim to be in spiritual communication with a higher intelligence.
A Biblical prediction says that "In the latter days, your sons and daughters shall prophesy". Brad Steiger has communicated with literally hundreds of individuals who claim to have received messages directly from God - or from spacemen, angels, spirit guides, or other superhuman entities. It would be easy to dismiss these latter-day prophets as deluded, but amazingly, their revelations all have an internal consistency, a common theme: A time of judgment is at hand, and humankind must change its ways to avert disaster.
Moreover, contemporary housewives, business executives, and "Jesus people" are experiencing the same symptoms of revelation - a blinding light, a voice out of nowhere, an impulse to take on a new name and a new life.
On the track of the elusive source of these messages, Steiger examines the spread of glossolalia and faith healing; the folklore of elves and leprechauns; the awesome cases where a revelator's body is briefly occupied by an outside personality; the mysterious "Elijah" tradition of the Bible that suggests the great prophets (perhaps even Jesus) were possessed by a single entity; and the latest laboratory research into consciousness expansion.
Revelation: The Divine Fire presents actual warnings, predictions, and messages from a wide spectrum of contemporary revelators. In addition, there are interviews and evaluations from a number of clergymen, scientists, and psychics who have met the divine fire.

Mr. Steiger gives you a look into how different people see religion. Very interesting...from biblical quotes to seeing UFOs, this certainly made my head shake in disbelief and other times gave me a chuckle.

Interesting if confusing at times
This book was attempting to explain the various revaluations people have had across the years. These range from lower class people to popes. The majority are to regular people and tend to be ignored or credited to mental illness.
It attempted to show how these were of multiple forms and how ignoring them has caused many established religions to become less important and/or change over time.
The narrator was good even if he spoke slightly too fast. The amount of information being presented left me confused at times as I did not have time to digest the material before the next topic was fully invested.
This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of an honest review.
