Author: Philip Mauro
The Number of Man:
Climax of Civilization
(2nd edition, 1919)
Philip Mauro was a prolific author in the first half of the 1900s, writing over 40 books before his death. He was well-known as a U.S. Supreme Court lawyer.
About this book:
The writer saw the things going on around him both politically and religiously and was firmly convinced that the events of Revelation were either being played out or about to be played out. His views in this book are very similar to that of dispensationalists.
This, the second edition of the book, contains an appendix dealing with the first World War which was then in full swing, and how the author believed it was fulfilling prophecy.
