Waiting for Armageddon is a documentary that studies Armageddon theology and Christian eschatology. Some evangelicals in the United States believe that bible prophecy predicts events including the Rapture and the Battle of Armageddon. The documentary raises questions regarding how this theology shapes United States and Middle East relations and how it may encourage aninternational holy war.
America’s 50-million strong Evangelical community is convinced that the world’s future is foretold in Biblical prophecy, from the Rapture to the Battle of Armageddon. Waiting for Armageddon explores this apocalyptic worldview, from the homefront in America to the future battlefield of Israel. By weaving Christian, Zionist, and Jewish perspectives along with telling archival materials, this eyeopening film also probes the potentially explosive alliance between Evangelical Christians and Israel…an alliance that may set the stage for what one Evangelical leader calls “World War III.”
