Cashless by Mark Hitchcock

Somewhere between writing checks in the 80’s and swiping a piece of plastic today, we missed the significance of the emerging cashless society. But there are reasons to take notice. According to Mark Hitchcock, author of several bestselling prophecy books and a trusted expert in this field, what is happening in the world today is consistent with prophecy written in Revelation 13, which predicts a one–world economy under the rule of the Antichrist.

With current research on the global economic, technological, and religious landscape, Hitchcock addresses important questions, including:

Will there be a one–world economy in the end times?
What is the mark of the beast? Does modern technology relate to the mark?
How does the absence of cash prime things for the Antichrist?
The advent of the cashless society is an important one to examine and think through in light of God’s Word and His promises.

I have read several of Mark Hitchcock's books in the last few years, and he knows his stuff. In his newest book, Cashless, he takes an in depth look at how the world is heading towards a cashless society. Always backing up his findings with fact, he shows how we are fast being set up for that very thing. I found the book interesting, though a bit scary to realize how close we really are.

From my own personal experience, Mark Hitchcock is one of the more sound and knowledgeable authors out there today writing about prophecy and end times events. If this type of reading interests you, check out not only Cashless, but the long list of other books that address end times events and issues.

The author:
