Footsteps of the Messiah

Eschatology seems to suffer at the hands both of its friends and foes. Those who play it down usually avoid assigning specific meaning to prophetic texts. Those who play it up often assign too much.

But the prophetic portions of the Bible won't go away. The biblical interpreter must interact with them and in the detail and specificity in which they were written. Dr. Fruchte

Phenomenal book by Fruchtenbaum that breaks down eschatology into a very understandable format. Fruchtenbaum does a particularly good job of linking the prophetic scriptures together - both major and minor prophets and, of course, Revelation - in a way that I've not heard others do nearly as well. He's clearly a dispensationalist (which he himself states) and is definitely of the school that highlights the differences between the Church and Israel. While you may not agree with everything he says ...more

Recommends it for: anyone who takes the Bible seriously
Dr Fruchtenbaum was trained as a rabbi before he was saved, and has a great knowledge of the word. His works are always methodical, and proceed logically. He deals with this subject is such depth that it causes the reader to want to study the word more, especially on account of it having so many references in the old testament scriptures of the last days. If one is to disagree with him on this or any subject, one must have a very compelling reason from scripture to do so. A totally excellent, bi ...more

Early on in my life this book became a constant source of inspiration containing exhaustive amounts of information that I had never heard before. Dr. Fruchtenbaum unveiled biblical secrets in such exquisite detail that he actually set the tone for my subsequent studies. Exceptions notwithstanding, the historical and theological accuracy of his research is unparalleled. This book uncovers innumerable prophetic verses that foreshadow current events, so much so that you can now hold the Bible in on ...more
I am futurist and I believe in a future for Israel as a nation. However, in my opinion, this book has major flaws. First, it presupposes an interpretive grid according to classical dispensationalism. It separates the people of God into two distinct peoples of God in a completely nunbiblical way. Second, it does not offer a very different view from what classical dispensationalism has already offered in its literature. Third, it does not respect the literary style from which the biblical texts ha ...more

This is an excellent book. It is a study of Eschatology. It basically goes through the Book of Revelation and also ties together the other relevant books such as Daniel, Ezekiel, most of the minor prophets and other relevant passages throughout the Bible. This is the third time I've read this book. The appendices are also incredibly helpful and enlightening. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in Revelation, Eschatology, and/or just learning about God's plan for everyone.

Taking the Scripture as literally as seems practicable, the author, a Messianic scholar with a PhD, presents all unfulfilled prophecies in the Scripture in context with all of Scripture.
I was going to lend this book to my friends, but now I suggested they put it on their Christmas list. This is a book to own so that you can go back to read parts over again.

There is no greater work on this subject! Be prepared for the best study on this subject and a mega dose of illumination!!
John Hately
This still rates as the best Christian Study book I have read. It was life-changing to say the least...

Scholarly study of end-times events. A "must" for the library of anyone interested in the subject.
Read, keep referring to!
