I give this book zero stars not because of the topic or because it's obviously outdated now, but because it, like most books of this type, is poorly written. It is also full of lies, omissions, and opinions that masquerade as truth.

The author first off assumes you know quite a bit about biblical prophesy. There is no summary or introduction to the topic at the beginning and no summary or broad conclusion at the end. He does include several "timelines" but each has different predicted events on i

I read a variety of these kinds of books when I was in Bible College; even then I found them rather poorly written and with dubious connections to Scripture. This was one of them. Re-reading this now, twenty years after I started to explore the subject, I note that they are still appropriate only to the degree that they are the most general. They are very good at taking past events and pullint them into their world view: as is any theology, any group, any philosophy. What they are bad at is any ...more

Recommends it for: anyone wanting to know more how current events fit with End Times prophecy
I have been enthralled with the End Times over the past year and have really dived into studying them becuase I want to understand them and I really feel we are living in the End Times right now--how long it will last I am not sure. Mr. Walvoord does an excellent job laying out how current events fit biblical prophecy. This has been the best book for making sense of biblical prophecy that's been filled, current events as the birth pangs of the end and biblical prophecy that is yet to be filled ...more

Reading this before going to sleep at night of all things! This book is one of those that is hard to put down at any point. So far, it reads like a Hal Lindsy book, lots of prophesy that could or could not come true. It relates to how the Mideast crisis affect the world supply of oil and what will the crisis do to the alignment of nations in the Middle East. Also, will Israel survive the Arab attempts to push it from the Holy Land and do current events point to the final global war, Armageddon?

Though released in 1974 this book is still a pretty contemporary read. It's well written and organized. However the premise is a bit misleading. There are interesting insights offered as to potential scenarios regarding Israel in the future, but mostly it's standard interpretations that can be found elsewhere. The majority of the book is typical Bible prophecy and the author's analysis of those prophecies. It's a topic that I don't tire of reading and this book presents the material in a fine ...more

Only 2 stars - It was okay - because I couldn't say I "really liked" it because of the topic itself. Prophesy or no, it is still sad to think mankind is destined for this (self)destruction. For those who like a good Stephen King scare I'd say this topic gives the scare plus the "chill-pill" so read it - it's a lot shorter, too.

The predictions are not very specific, but the history of the middle east is explained well. You have to believe the interpretation of the bible as the author does to draw the same conclusions about the future. Luckily, we do not have to guess right, the future will be a surprise to us all. John 3:16. No ambiguity there.

Although not a bible scholar, I'm an avid reader of the Bible and a Christian. This book helped me understand the oil and Middle East crisis, along with how they relate to the end times. Much has happened since the writing of this book. It was an interesting read and easy to understand.

Spells out the way many Americans like me were raised to believe how it all came about and how its all going to go. Evolution is a wonderful substance!

Every Christian needs to understand the Middle East, and Walvoord is an excellent author to help you understand it.
