There is a growing collective interest in the end times. But with that interest comes a barrage of confusing, and sometimes misleading, ideas and messages. With so much available information, how can we discern fact from fiction?

Eschatology can be an obsession, like reading ghost stories or watching horror movies. There is hardly a scarier prospect than the end of the world. Just look at the millennium bug scare, or the more recent Mayan "apocalypse" - but deep inside our hearts, we know there will be an end. And as Christians, it is something to look forward to with hope rather than cowering from with dread. This book does an excellent job of reminding us of just that.

The author's investigation of all things eschatological and his conclusions.

Since eschatology is always a subject that leads to great fascination the author decided to set forth the results of his own study. Those results cannot be easily fit into a pre-existent paradigm, for better and for worse.

The author explores the hope of Christianity, God's rule in His Kingdom, death and life, various millennial theories, end time signs, the antichrist, the role of Israel, tribulation and rapture, Armaged...more

I am working through the end times with my prayer fellowship/bible study at the moment, this book is proving essential in my planning. Well balanced, nice to read, not sensationalising. Recommended just for the chapter on Hope alone.

“Hope rests in God’s sovereignty, rejoices in God’s victory. We are not given a detailed plan of times and dates, just the big picture. Those who stray into straining out the end-time details to the last drop have actually lost the vision of future hope, leaving themselves at risk of being trapped in the shadows cast by the light. Hoffmann says that biblical hope leads to a “renunciation of all calculations of the future, the humble recognition of the limits set to our knowledge.”18” 0 likes
“Jesus gave us a glimpse of the end-time signs so that we might be faith-filled in expectation, faithful in preparation, and engaged in far-afield gospel proclamation. He called us not to focus primarily on the signs or to be gazing into the heavens, but to look prayerfully on the nations where we must preach the gospel until he comes. Let us not start playing end-time-signs bingo. Rather let us play our part in the end-time signs by preaching the gospel to the nations.” 0 likes
