"Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed." - Genesis 19:17
The doomsday business is booming. Millions sense that Planet Earth is on the verge of some Apocalypse -- by way of global economic meltdown, pandemic, war, or a natural disaster that plunges the world's cities into chaos. In response, people everywhere are snatching up country properties.
"Preppers," rich and poor, are storing up food, taking classes in wilderness survival, and stockpiling guns and ammo.
But how should a Christian respond -- in light of Bible prophecy and the great commission? Has the time really come for believers to desert the cities and head for the hills?
From the heart of New York City to a remote mountain cave, author and evangelist Doug Batchelor has experienced the spectrum of country, suburban, and city living. More important, for the past forty years, he and his family have maintained a country home "off the grid" in Northern California.
With a biblical perspective, this book addresses the when, how and why (and why not) to head for the hills. Doug Batchelor identifies the practical things to look for in buying a piece of land, and what you need to live in semi-independent from civilization -- all while maintaining a mission to the spiritually lost.
This is the perfect book if you're wondering, "Does God want me to head for the hills, and how do I take the first step?"

Awesome it's very encouraging
This was a great beginner's guide to country living. Fast read and had good information.
Great insight, very realistic, brings you down to earth regarding in how to make a very important decision with a lot of thought, and leaves you with a peace of heart and a desire to pray more about this life changing decision. Thanks pastor Batchelor, like always God uses you to make us come closer and closer to our Creator.
Such an easy and inspiring read
Very good it has a lot of practical information
Very helpful information for those of us that feel the need to gain understanding and direction towards country living.
a fast read. very short booklet. Doug shares his insight and does a good job. However, I was expecting more tips and references on how to.
We learned things to consider in buying our home such as if we should buy in a more deserted area or on the outskirts of a city moderate size city. Also, things to consider learned from actual experiences.
Better than I expected. I was expecting a complete hand book on country living. To my surprise the first half of the book talked about what is God's will for us and where He wants us to be. That was a challenge for me.
