Understanding End Times Prophecy: A Comprehensive Approach

3.75  ·  Rating details ·  104 Ratings  ·  14 Reviews
Many Christians think of end-times prophecy as a gigantic, intimidating puzzle—difficult to piece together and impossible to figure out. But every puzzle can be solved if you approach it the right way.

Paul Benware compares prophecy to a picture puzzle. Putting the edge pieces together first builds the 'framework' that makes it easier to fit the other pieces in their place.

A great summary with some detail for a student of Eschatology. This book presents a good systematic approach to biblical studies. It argues for grammatical-historical method of prophecy interpretation and presents the different view on eschatology providing a balanced evaluation. The author writes from the point of view of pre-milenialism and pre-tribulationsim. I had read this book over ten years ago for the first time and found it very helpful and still recommend it for the students of eschato ...more

What an amazing and thorough look at the various views of Prophecy. While he discusses the Pre, Post and A Millinial views (among a few others) he shows how the Pre-Mil view is the most consistent view with Scripture. It begins with a premise based upon the promise of God to the Israelites and how that promise is unconditional and must still yet be fulfilled. No matter what viewpoint you hold, it is a must read. Very thorough, yet easy to grasp and comprehend. A great book for anyone who desires ...more

This is probably one of the clearest and most comprehensive books on Bible prophecy. It is premillennialism, dispensational, and pretribulational. In a time where solid, literal, Biblical interpretation is lacking Benware presents a book that is readable as well as Biblical. Should be read by anyone claiming to be fundamental.

Just had to review this wonderful author. His style is clear and so informative. For any level I think above beginner. The info is tight, pertinent and more than the 'basic' prophecy book. My favorites have been and are Walvoord, Martyn Lloyd Jones, Pentecost and others. Beware has joined my favorites!

I would give this 3.5 stars if I could. Benware does a good job of making end times events palpable, and goes to great length to arrange them in sequential order. Very clear, easy to read, pre-millennial perspective.

IMO the best book on Eschatology from a Dispensational perspective for the layman. Easy to read. Benware is clear and concise. He treats each millennial view fairly and provides a critique of the opposing views stating why they are incorrect. This should be on every Christian's shelf.

I marked this book on almost every page. It was an incredibly helpful tool to understanding what will happen in the end. I still pull it out to refresh my memory from time-to-time.

Great book if you are myopic and can only understand the end times from a dispensational view. The author is dismissive of other views. It was required reading.
