Book Review Maya Prophecy

Maya Prophecy

Dr Ronald Bonewitz


ISBN 978-0-7499-2987-9

I don’t think many haven’t heard of this prediction. Even my taxi driver was talking about it. So what exactly is it? We hear ‘end of the world’ stories on a regular basis, and nothing has yet happened – so far. Is this one any different?

Well, this isn’t simply about the 2012 prophecy, this is an in-depth look at practically everything Mayan. Their astronomy, architecture, calendars and teachings are all explored, and the book contains the latest research. Stories of past catastrophes, including great floods, are documented, too.

The author trained as a geologist and has travelled extensively in the Yucatan, exploring unmapped sites and speaking to Maya Indians. Certainly an interesting and very readable book.
