She Who Restores the Roman Empire: The Biblical Prophecy of the Whore of Babylon
With the popularity of the Left Behind series studies in prophetic interpretations have increased with some seminaries even offering degrees in prophetic studies. She Who Restores the Roman Empire is a careful historical and exegetical study of one such prophecy: the Whore of Babylon, whose name has been uttered throughout history and is said to be "the lover" of the anti-Christ to come.
Of "The Biblical prophecy of the Whore of Babylon" St. Augustine said that the Church of Rome would one day apostatize while St. Jerome hinted that the day of apostasy may have already begun, but today even many Protestants reject this notion arguing instead that a new Babylonian kingdom will arise in Iraq. "She Who Restores the Roman Empire" is a thorough survey of this controversial prophecy. It examines the prophetic interpretations throughout history and shows their impact upon history. It shows how the prophecy itself helped shaped the Reformation and counter-Reformation. It also discusses the newer interpretations which predict a revival of ancient Babylon or a global New Age religion. Dr. Criswell's conclusion is based on thorough exegesis and on historical precedent. He contends that it is the Harlot who will initiate the restoration of the Roman Empire and the anti-Christ will initially be his puppet before turning on her and destroying her great city. Napoleon was an archetype of the coming anti-Christ who will promise a new world but deliver destruction.
