Item Description...
Overview
Three days after terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, David Horowitz discovered that he had prostate cancer. As America was rebuilding, he emerged from months of treatment with a "reprieve" from his disease. He emerged as well with this remarkable book of hard-won insights about how we get to our end and what we learn along the way. A stunning departure from the polemics and social criticism that have made Horowitz one of our most controversial public intellectuals, The End of Time is an unflinching and lyrical meditation on subjects ranging from what parents inadvertently teach us in their deaths, to the forbidding reality of the cancer ward and the way in which figures like Mohammed Atta use death to become gods of theirown mad creation. Hovering protectively over these ruminations and Horowitz's personal crisis is his wife, April, whose stubborn love reached into the heart of his medical darkness and led him back toward the light of this work. The End of Time is also about the redemptive power of language and literature. One of the writers appearing here is the Catholic philosopher and scientist Blaise Pascal, whose Pensees functions as Horowitz's model and guide. Citing Pascal's famous observation that "the heart has its reasons which reason does not know," Horowitz writes: "I do not have the faith of Pascal, but I know its feeling. While reason tells me the pictures will stop, I will be unafraid when death comes. I will feel my way toward the horizon in front of me, and my heart will take me home."

Publishers Description
Three days after terrorists slammed airliners into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, David Horowitz, as disoriented as the rest of us by these cataclysmic events, discovered that he had prostate cancer. As America declared war on terror, Horowitz began treatment, emerging months later with a "reprieve" from his disease. He brought back with him this remarkable book of hard-won insights about our country and ourselves--how we get to our ends and what we learn along the way. An at times heart-catching departure from the polemics and social criticism that have made Horowitz one of our most controversial public intellectuals, THE END OF TIME is a lyrical meditation on subjects ranging from what parents inadvertently teach us in their deaths, to the forbidding realities of the cancer ward, to the way in which figures like Mohammed Atta use death as a strategy in becoming gods of their own mad creation. Hovering protectively over these ruminations is Horowitz's wife, April, whose stubborn love reached into the heart of his medical darkness and led him back toward the light of this work. If THE END OF TIME is about how the commitments we make in this life steer us toward our fate, it is also about the redemptive power of language and literature. One of the writers who helped Horowitz make sense of what had happened to him and what was happening around him was the 17th century Catholic philosopher and scientist Blaise Pascal, whose PENSEES functions here as a model and guide. THE END OF TIME resembles the PENSEES in its striking combination of sense and sensibility, and in the way that its unflinching search for the truth is elevated by one stunning epiphany after another. Citing Pascal's famous observation that "the heart has its reasons which reason does not know," Horowitz concludes his journey by saying: "I do not have the faith of Pascal, but I know its feeling…. I will be unafraid when death comes. I will feel my way toward the horizon in front of me, and my heart will take me home."

Brilliant, Thoughtful & Moving  Jun 2, 2008
`The End of Time' by David Horowitz

I didn't think I could ever read anything more gripping from Messir Horowitz than `Radical Son' - `The End of Time' proved me wrong in that assumption. In this tract, his soul is laid bare for the reader. Each page is more intense than the last. You will find not a wasted paragraph, nor sentence, nor word. Feel Horowitz's pain, explore his literary mind, rejoice in his new beginning and ponder the paradox of life.

This is a non-political book, making it one of a kind for David Horowitz. In my mind, it's the best work he has ever penned and will move you from the first sentence to last. You'll truly be better for having taken the time to read it.
 
Humble Insights about Life, Death and Love  Apr 21, 2007
David Horowitz, agnostic, reformed radical son and full-time bête noire of the progressive movement, has written a book, which isn't just an example of his protean powers as a thinker and writer but it's a beautiful exposition of his spiritual insights into some of the most profound yet ultimately unanswerable questions about human existence.

And this work indeed feels more like an exposition than an orderly narrative. Much like the great mathematician Blaise Pascal's Pensées, a collection of his thoughts about God and existence that were literally sewn together, Horowitz examines Pascal's reflections and adopts the same patchwork style, which works well.

When it comes to trying to comprehend the meaning of life and death within the context of an infinitesimal reality, Horowitz's brilliance, personal experiences and humility provides a wealth of valuable lessons that teaches us that the weight of consciousness doesn't need to be a burden, but it's an opportunity to discover meaning in a life that can only be meaningful when truncated by death.

This is certainly a book worth reading by both believers and unbelievers in a higher power and the afterlife.
 
The End Of Time  May 7, 2006
This book is a very good book if you are interested in learning about 9/11 and how it happened. This book had a very good story line and it has gone into a lot of detail about everything it talks about. This book was very insightful. I enjoyed to read this book because it told me how everything happened at 9/11. It also teaches you life lessons and it does this without trying to. It makes you think about your life. This book also teaches you to live your life to the fullest because if you don'you might run out of time. That was the cancer part of the book. The man thought that he couldn't get cancer but then he did. This tells you that anything can happen at anytime.
 
Poignant and, as usual, well written  Sep 24, 2005
I think Horowitz's political persona obscures important facts about him as a man and a writer: He is very obviously an honest and courageous guy, and he also pens beautiful prose. This book will, in no way, disappoint: surprisingly, I found it to be a quite pleasant, thought-provoking rumination on a difficult subject that I, like most others, would normally have steered clear of. Had I not already been a fan, it is certain that I would have missed an important opportunity at personal introspection. (Thanks, David.)
 
Painfully Transparent  Sep 5, 2005
David does good work here as usual. One of his
frequent tacts is to simply bare himself to
you in prose before making any comments on other
matters. This book follows that formula to a
greater degree.

Horowitz is an agnostic, and I can identify with
him on that. But the lament he writes is a bit
ad hoc. He /does/ get the feelings and ideas
very much right about how it feels to succeed
but not have parental approval. And its sad
to see someone at the top of his game still having
to worry about paying for the big ocean view (if I
ever get to that I'm hoping its not gonna be a
matter for coffee and slips of paper with the wife).

But Horowitz is one of the real deals.
This guy's earned his politics in his body.

I can understand the end of the story, with
his new wife's ballon messages to his departed
mother...but there needed to be a stronger
finish, Is or Not Is. Though, I suppose, not taking
/that/ stand is what Agnostic is all about.

Good insights, though mostly for fans of the man himself.
