Interview with Bob Thiel, Ph.D.



Interview with Bob Thiel

1. What (and how many books) have you released? What are they about? I have had six other books published, and they relate to nutrition and natural health. This is my first theological book, and I am close to finishing another prophecy-related book.

2. How did you get the idea for your work? What lured you to your topics? The idea for 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect came when I heard that Sony had bought the production rights for Roland Emmerich’s 2012 movie. I had been working on a much longer book on church history and prophecy (which should be out in 2012) and realized that there might be more general interest in a book that focused on what would need to happen by 2012 and beyond.

3. What topic/scene/section was the most intense, or most visual, for you to write, personally? Probably appendix B of the book, which relates to a sequence of steps that I believe prophecy shows will come to pass—and some items in that have (as well as other parts of the book). Appendix B focuses on Daniel 11 and other prophecies, and what Daniel 11 really teaches has long been controversial.
4. In the event that your book became a documentary or screenplay, who would you like to see included in the casting? Matt Damon.

5 If you could meet anyone or see anything from your novel, characters or otherwise, what and/or who would you choose? Probably Pope Benedict XVI as he is alive now and if he was willing, there are many questions that I would ask him.

6. How did you go about selecting your cover? The cover is based upon certain Mayan and other prophecies. I showed two versions of the cover to different people and chose the one that most liked best (I also liked it best).

7. What, if any, are your upcoming projects? When can readers expect them? There are at least four other books expected soon. The first is tentatively titled Fatima Shock! and I believe that readers, of any or no religious background, will be surprised about what it reveals. It has mostly been written but I am in the process of getting an editor and formatter for it.
The next book is tentatively called the Beginning and the End of the Christian Church Era. Readers should be impressed by how carefully it explained what has happened to the religion commonly known as Christianity and what really happened to the faithful, as well as what to expect next. I have been working on this book for probably 6 or 7 years and hopefully it will be out in 2012.
The other two books are on the prophetic side and have to do with the identity of two end-time leaders that are expected to rise up.

8. Why did you become (or decide to become) an author (or start writing)? I have always liked to write, and because I have a Ph.D., I was asked to write books on health and articles on religion.

9. What do you love the most about being an author? I can help people see the truth about important subjects that most so-called “experts” seem to misunderstand. I believe that this enriches the lives of those that my writings touch.

10. What or who inspires you to write? I feel spiritually driven to get the truth out--it is a very strong drive.

11. What is the top cause you champion? How people and society can be transformed. This basically boils down to what real Christianity is vs. what passes for Christianity.

12. What advice do you have for anyone who is interested in becoming an author? Start to write. If they do not start, they will never finish.

13. What is the one thing your readers should know about you? World events continue to align with predictions that I write about. At least 20 so far related to 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect, plus many others related to my webpage, etc.

14. What is the one thing you want your perspective readers to know about you? I footnote to death! Since I am normally championing unpopular causes, my readers tend realize that I have proof to back my writings up. Furthermore, since world events continue to align with predictions that I write about, they should expect that other predictions in my books will also happen.

15. If you could do anything (for a career), besides being a writer, what would do? Be a more effective witness about the subjects I believe most about. Perhaps do television documentaries or similar related to what I research and write about.

16. Aside from writing, what are your hobbies? Water sports, family activities.

17. What is…?
…your favorite author?
…your favorite book or series?
…your biggest literary inspiration?

Growing up, I always liked Mark Twain on the fiction side.
The Bible would be my favorite book.
The Apostle Paul or the Prophet Jeremiah or the Prophet Daniel are among my biggest literary inspirers.

18. Do you listen to music when you write? If so, what artists? If not, do you have other muses? No, I do not listen to music when I write.

19. Is there anything, specifically, that helps you write (or is unique about your writing process)? No, though world news events can trigger a lot of ideas.

20. Which, if any, character do you feel has the most of your characteristics (or acts like you do)? Possibly the Prophet Elijah.

Thank you for participating!

Ready for chills? Check out this sneak peak from the book's website...

"For example, here are just three predictions from "2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect" that have been proven true --

1) In the book (Chapters 7 and 8): "the U.S. dollar will ultimately be worthless with another currency taking its place in the world."
A multi-national committee of the United Nations is calling for the elimination of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency – a position held for over 60 years. This would be disastrous for the U.S as it produces a global currency and opens the door for the Antichrist. Reported by The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg.com & Telegraph.co.uk
2) In Chapters 3 & 10: The Vatican will continue to expand its ecumenical policies and compromise in order to ultimately lure most of the Protestants and Orthodox into unity with the Church of Rome.
The Vatican would allow Anglicans (and American Episcopalians) to become part of the Church of Rome without having to change much of their practices and rituals. Reported by CNN & EpiscopalLife.org
3) Chapter 8 warns that Barack Obama will help enable the rise of a multi-national leader of an Islamic confederation the Bible refers to as the King of the South.
"Report: U.S. favors Muslim Brotherhood over pro-democracy Syrian opposition" -- Reported by World Tribune
The next couple years will change your life. The world is rapidly changing. Within just one month, the world goes through major economic and political transformations. These give you dangers and opportunities. Many people will act on the prophecies that they believe. It’s vital to be on top of the important news and prophecies that will affect you."
