In fact, dear readers, I believe this may be the best Christian Eschatological book I’ve had the pleasure of reading. What I enjoyed most was the time the author took to bring even Christian “newbies” a clear understanding of what the Bible has to say about end times. He shows us that the end times are first addressed by God in the Book of Genesis. And then we are shown throughout the Bible that God and His prophets spoke of and taught the end times throughout the entire Bible.
Jeffress also gives us an overview of many eschatological terms, such as: Pre-Tribulation, Mid-Tribulation, Post-Tribulation, Milinnialism, the rapture, the Abomination of Desolation, the White Throne Judgment, and many other important terms and topics related to the end of the church age.
The book is incredibly informational, while not sounding like a technical journal article. Pastor Jeffress’ writing, as well as the pastor himself, is very approachable and provides clear definition and understanding for the newest of Christians.
I’ve read a lot of books on end times. And the topic has always been one of high interest to me. I read my first book on “Eschatology” back in high school, when Hal Lindsey published “The Late Great Planet Earth”. Since that time, I’ve cultivated a short list of prophecy teachers and authors that would include Lindsey, Grant Jeffrey, John Hagee, Perry Stone, and Irvin Baxter. These writers offer a wide spectrum of end times perspectives. And while I don’t necessarily agree with these perspectives, I find that I am a better apologist by knowing and somewhat understanding the many sides of this topic.
I offer my opinion of this book because it’s packed with good and important information, it’s scope is wide, which makes it more understandable and more illuminating . And it is an easy read for any level of students of this subject.
I do commend this book to you with near certainty that it will mold and strengthen your understanding of The Word. It’s a book that all Christians, regardless of their level of biblical knowledge, should read and consider.
