Author Biography

I was brought up on false teachings in the church from my youth. I fell away from the church after I graduated from high school. After about seventeen years of running from GOD, I came back with a passion to learn. After a while I began to do my own research and studies. I began sharing what I had discovered with a friend of mine. He convinced me that I needed to write a book about it. I began the process in 2016. I published the first version of this book in 2017. I just republished it in August 2021. If you are going to walk on water, you must get out of the boat. Better yet, sometimes you must take the bull by the horns!

Reviewed by Vincent Dublado for Readers' Favorite

Ernest Reagan Clark II may well be dubbed as the myth buster of biblical prophecies. He pulls no punches in his scathing interpretation of the false teachings of the Bible in his book, For Such a Time as This: Let My People Go, You End-Times Doomsday Sayers! He feels that the world is being misled by the multitudes of false teachings, and the Bible is no exception. Here, the author tackles the serious nonexistent prophecy concerns that are the very foundation of Christianity. As an example, he takes close scrutiny at the prophecy pertaining to the world’s end as a grave misinterpretation, as it refers to the end of the covenant with the Jewish people rather than the end of the world. This book is a journey, an exploration into the major weaknesses in the claims of prophecy-fulfillment that are further perpetuated by charlatans in the pulpit and mass media.

Many among the devout and the religious are likely to find Ernest Reagan Clark II out of line, but in the spirit of free inquiry, his arguments do carry weight. Whether we admit it or not, there are those among us who find the Bible to be a tiresome book, but the sad thing is that bashing it can be equally tiresome. The good thing is, the author carries a flaming sword, and he is not tiresome. Biblical inaccuracy has no place in his rational world, and therefore, he feels that Scripture must be challenged. With so many wealthy religious leaders whose goals are nothing more than theocracy, we need a book like For Such a Time as This to hit them head-on. Because it is never civilized and fashionable to sit on the sidelines and call them bad names. This book is a far more reasonable way to challenge them.

For Such a Time as This tells us about a new way of seeing the Bible. Ernest Reagan Clark II explains the differences in translations and shows us how a word or a punctuation mark can change the meaning of an entire sentence. This book is the result of years of research, not only on the linguistic aspects but also on the history. With all the investigative tools we have today, it would be a shame to continue living in ignorance. The author gives arguments that motivate us to discover the truth of a book as mysterious as the Bible. Knowing the past is very important to understand our present and not let ourselves be deceived by false prophets.

The level of research by the author is impressive. His whole system is completely methodical. Focusing on the smallest details and with good explanations, the author makes comparisons of several translations simultaneously to obtain the best possible interpretation. For example, a word as common as 'world' can have many interpretations. Ernest Reagan Clark II explains that this word is the translation used for different terms such as 'aion' or 'kosmos' and therefore if we look for the roots of the language, we will have different interpretations. I like that For Such a Time as This is based on original texts and more direct translations. I was also pleased to see how the author gets involved in a very personal way. He had doubts from his youth, longed for the right answers, and was encouraged to look for them.

For Such a Time as This: Let My People Go, You End-Times Doomsday Sayers! is a work of non-fiction in the religious, social issues, and theological subgenres. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by Ernest Reagan Clark II. The book is an examination of the false teachings of God’s word that are rampant within the modern world. In particular, the book focuses on the portrayal of the end of times as prophesied in the Bible. He analyzes which translations of the Bible are least reliable with regards to this message, and concludes that the end does not necessarily refer to the end of the world as we know it.

One thing that often strikes me when reading books discussing the scriptures and God’s will for mankind is the detached and sometimes clinical nature of the debate. This is not the case in this book, as author Ernest Reagan Clark II manages to create a feeling of personal investment in the faith he discusses, which brings a great deal of weight to the discussions and conclusions. However, this emotional investment doesn’t detract from the intellectual arguments presented, and I quickly found that each chapter of For Such a Time as This gave me a great deal to think about. By systematically analyzing the word of God as presented in the Bible and considering this alongside the historical context, this book presents fresh ideas in a long-standing debate. Overall, it was a fascinating read, and I recommend this book to anyone on a spiritual journey of their own as powerful food for thought.

For Such a Time as This: Let My People Go, You End-Times Doomsday Sayers! by Ernest Reagan Clark II is a non-fiction theological study and the culmination of over a decade of consideration and research by its author. Clark presents his theory on misperceptions that have long been preached from the pulpit that the end of times is not, in fact, coming. Instead, Clark provides scripture using multiple biblical sources to underscore the argument that the doctrine that fuels the misconceptions is taken entirely out of context. The practice of adulteration has a harmful effect on Christians due to the element of fear it evokes, particularly in children, and also due to the very real consequences of not being able to “walk the talk” by virtue of not understanding what the “talk” really is, to begin with. Clark is here to tell you.

Not everybody who reads For Such a Time as This is going to agree with Ernest Reagan Clark II. In the interest of full disclosure, I am not a Christian. Anyone reading this review might automatically disqualify my opinion, but you would be wrong. Why? Because I can approach the work 100% objectively—and objectivity is the only way Clark gets a fair shake. I didn't come in with preconceived ideas. I read what Clark had to say and absorbed it. While the writing could use a strong polish, there is no question that the research here and the exhaustive cross-referencing of multiple Bible translations make it a worthy read. Clark makes some incredibly sound arguments and backs them up, which is more than can be said for a lot of books out there. In addition to learning something, Christians who enjoy editorial-style narratives will get good mileage out of Clark's work. Using his own words to wrap this up: “It is difficult not to get off on a rabbit chase. I just pray that my rabbit chases are enlightening to the seeker of what God's word actually states...”

Very good book to read. Readers are being open to the reality of faith not just on what we see visibly but also deep diving the faith in a way we underatand it deeply and with solid foundation. Recommended to be read by seminary institutions or any firm that based on religion and faith. Author’s level of research is extensive and very impressive.
