    If you have a chance to get your hands on a copy of this gem of a book, I highly recommend you do so. I believe this book was written in 1918, and it is very interesting to read a story of the rapture that was written so long ago. Set in London, the language is writing style is definately from that time period, and little tidbits about horse-drawn cabs, lighting lanterns when they enter a house, etc. really add to the feel and charm of this book.

    A classic indeed... That an endtimes book, published in 1911, could nearly match anything written today blows the mind. The signs shine even more clearly now. This book shares Truth though it does no service in allowing the instant repentance and redemption of souls left behind. I'm not at all sure this will work as easily as this type of book proposes.

    This was difficult to rate but I’m being generous and give it 3 stars, not as much on merit as because it was interesting as a curiosity. A christian end times novel written over a century ago (1910 or 1919, depending on source), it tells the story of a newspaper editor in London who hears about biblical prophecies of Christ’s second coming and starts to investigate.

A christian end times novel written over a century ago (1910 or 1919, depending on source), it tells the story of a newspaper editor in London who hears about biblical prophecies of Christ’s second coming and starts to investigate. The plot relies heavily on coincidences (he runs into an old friend who gives him his dream job as editor of a new newspaper the same day he got fired from his old job, and once he gets interested in religion he seems to always be at the right place at the right time to get information he needs). The rapture finally happens (but not until near the end of the book, leaving room for a sequel. It’s not a great book but it was interesting. The irony, of course, is that the book is over 100 years old and Christ still hasn’t returned, but Christian preachers are still saying it’s going to happen very soon (and their interpretations of the prophecies constantly change to fit into new historical events).

    Heart opening story of future times This is such a sad and heart breaking story of future events. I am so happy the main characters were turned to Jesus. This book is side by side with God's word. As hard as it is to face the facts it's time to live for Him. Thank you to the author for this easy to read and understand the tribulation.

    A Faith Classical, written in1910 about the 'End-Times' as a Fiction story. Watson's goal was to wake-up 'Careless' People' with true Biblical Scriptures from the King James Bible.

    I loved this book. I believe it was written for the Biblical information he wanted to share about salvation, the rapture, and end times, and the story was used to get his point across. He presented It well. Hats off to those who kept these truths alive for future generations to build on.

    Around 85 years before Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye penned the enormously popular “Left Behind” series, Sydney Watson wrote a trilogy of novels about the end-times. In the Twinkling of an Eye was his first, coming out initially in 1910. Although not particularly well-written, it fascinated me to know that he wrote about the formation of the Jewish state 35 years before it occurred. He also wrote about the rebuilding of the Jewish temple… still waiting on that one. This specific edition is edited Around 85 years before Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye penned the enormously popular “Left Behind” series, Sydney Watson wrote a trilogy of novels about the end-times. In the Twinkling of an Eye was his first, coming out initially in 1910. Although not particularly well-written, it fascinated me to know that he wrote about the formation of the Jewish state 35 years before it occurred. He also wrote about the rebuilding of the Jewish temple… still waiting on that one. This specific edition is edited and abridged. The original contained an additional chapter or two, many references of poetry and hymns, and a smattering of politically incorrect characterizations. Dialog at times is stilted and stodgy, but I was charmed by the romantic Victorian style. If you have interest in the development of end-times thinking, consider this one. It is a quick read.

    Late author Sydney Watson's first book in an "end times" trilogy gives Jenkins and LaHaye a run for their money. Set in 1910's England, it has the charm of an old-school live-action Disney movie, with a great plot and engaging characters! I sure hope the other books in the series are still in print!

    Didn't really care for this book. It was written with old english, early twentieth-century talk. Once I got used to the speech, it still didn't hold my attention.
