New book by NI writer hailed as potential Bestseller!

The Whore and her Mother 
Raymond McCullough, from County Down, has been writing successfully for years. He began by publishing a magazine, Bread, which went to nearly every possible type of denomination in Ireland, and all over the island (from Catholic to Free Presbyterian and from Cork to Coleraine, and Galway to Dublin) at the height of the troubles.  The mediating influence of this magazine certainly contributed more than can be quantified to the eventual ceasefires.

Raymond then moved on to having numerous articles published in computer magazines, while earning a living as a college lecturer; to having his thoughts on Ireland published by the Irish Times and the Presbyterian Herald; and to self publishing a book, 'Ireland – Now the Good News', excerpts from Bread.

Since those days, he has mainly concentrated on radio and podcasts (Celtic Roots Radio currently has nearly 14,000 downloads a month) but recent developments in the world around us, together with the serious urging of various friends, have now decided him to complete, and publish, the book he has been putting together for some time, with the striking title, 'The Whore and her Mother.'

This book takes a long hard look at the forecasts of the Hebrew prophets (respected by at least three of the major world religions) and it attempts, in the light of current events, to work out how accurate they have been up until now, how far we can therefore trust their future predictions, and how we should interpret their meaning.

At a time when the devastating events of recent years are forcing even the completely unreligious to describe  them as 'apocalyptic,' and those who have some belief to ask urgent questions, here is a book which makes a serious effort to come to terms with the question of what will happen next, and how close we might be to the end of this world as we know it.

Unlike others, Raymond McCullough makes no attempt to prophecy himself, but lucidly, straightforwardly, with academic precision, but also with page turning excitement, puts the pieces of the jigsaw into some sort of order, and gives us his best guess as to what we should now expect, while inviting us not to swallow his ideas, but to read up his references and judge for ourselves.

This is a book which no one should miss. Buy it on Amazon Kindle for £2.99, or look out for the paperback, coming soon.
