January Featured Resource: The End Times Made Simple

End Times Made Simple CoverBook Description

Rapture? Pre-Trib? Post-Trib? Millenium? Confused? You should be! In today’s Evangelical Christian world, eschatology―or the study of the “last things”―has been turned into a sort of pseudo-science with a plethora of authors claiming to know exactly the scenario of events that are to take place just prior to the Lord Jesus Christ’s return. Samuel Waldron’s thesis is that there is This Age, and The Age to Come. We will be, or are, in either one or the other. Any “End Times” system that forms a hybrid of these two, or contradicts this simple formula, is unbiblical, and should be rejected.

The Future of Everything

Cover Future of EverythingBook Description

All of us think about the end times. When we reflect on what will happen not only when we die but when this present age ends, some combination of ideas, images, hopes, and fears floods our minds. In The Future of Everything, William Boekestein encourages us to allow our thoughts on the end times to be guided by God’s Word. While combing the Scriptures to find direction related to subjects like death, the millennial kingdom, the return of Christ, the resurrection, judgment, heaven, and hell, Boekestein helps us cultivate a vision for the future that impacts our walk before God’s face today.

Three Views on the Millennium and Beyond

Three Views on the Millennium and Beyond CoverStatus: Available

Publisher’s Description

Are these the last days? Could Jesus return at any time to establish his thousand-year reign on earth? What is the nature of Christ’s millennial kingdom referred to in the book of Revelation? What must happen before Jesus returns, and what part does the church play?

Three predominant views held by evangelicals seek to answer these and related questions: premillennial, postmillennial, and amillennial. This book gives each view a forum for presentation, critique, and defense. Besides each contributor’s personal perspective, various interpretations of the different positions are discussed in the essays.

Three Views on the Millennium and Beyond lets you compare and contrast three important eschatological viewpoints to gain a better understanding of how Christianity’s great hope, the return of Jesus, is understood by the church.

Contributors include:

Kenneth L. Gentry Jr., Postmillennialism
Robert B. Strimple, Amillennialism
Craig A. Blaising, Premillennialism

Darrell Bock, General Editor
