"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?"

Heading for the hills: Beginners guide to country living
A great guide if you’re interested in moving to the country. Not only does it tell you how to live in the country, but it also tells you how to prepare to move to the country. This book shows that ultimately our decision should be based on the promptings of the Holy Spirit.

Loved this...loved the games and puzzles with each story.
I love Pastor Doug, and I love how practical this book on country living is. I grew up on a farm in the hills of Tennessee so some of this is familiar to me, but Pastor Doug fills this book with wonderful tips I didn't know!
Great! Enjoyed this book very interesting.
Doug did a really good
Doug did a really good job of making his presentation relevant to our times. I really enjoyed the book.
Pr Batchelor presents a balanced approach to time and method of country living. In a time where people want to run from current events to what they imagine could be a utopia away from our warped culture, this book gives good guidance to approach such a move with prayer and consideration of important factors.
Wonderful. Great service. Good read. Speedy deliverance thank you.
Interesting and eye opening.
