Wonderful Bible Study!!
January 13, 2013
"What You Need to Know About Bible Prophecy: 12 Lessons That Can Change Your Life," by Max Anders is a pretty neat book. It's a book about the end times, which seems to be all the rage now. It's broken up into 12 Chapters...or "lessons" and is a great Bible Study! The chapters aren't too long, which I LOVE!, so you can really do a lesson a day if you'd like. Each chapter has a bunch of questions at the end. They begin the study with a "Speed Bump" section. That basically stops and makes sure you understand what you just read about. Then there is a "Fill in the Blank" section, followed by a "for further thought and discussion" section. But that's not it...it then has an interesting section called "what if I don't believe?" And lastly there is a section called "for Further Study" and it lists scriptures and other books you can read to get more information.
In the beginning of the book there is a couple pages that show you how to teach the book in case you wanted to lead a study or get together, so that's helpful if you're interested in something like that. I also love that he shares different theories of what other "experts" think...it gives you a whole rounded view.
All in all it's a great book. I find it refreshing to study because it's something I normally wouldn't study...really gets your brain going!
I received this book for free, from Booksneeze, in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are my own.
I really enjoyed this book. It is set up as a bible study in 12 lessons. There is a section at the beginning of the book that tells you how to teach the book if you were leading a bible study. The chapters are short enough to read in one sitting and then there are questions at the end. For Further Thought and For Further Study sections are included at the end of each chapter as well.
I think this book would be better in a group setting as opposed to studying it alone unless you already know a lot about the Bible. It does a good job of explaining what it is talking about in each section, but I think it would be beneficial to have others to talk to and discuss the book with as you go along. The best part of the book is the Why I Need to Know This box in each chapter. It makes the material relevant to me and in today's time.

What You Need to Know About Bible Prophecy by Max Anders is a book about end times as told in the Bible using both the Bible as well as other well known commentaries for his research. This book reports both from The Old Testament prophets as well as the Revelation of John as told in the New Testament. You can through reading this book develop further understanding of the future of this world and the next. He tells of the various theories of how the end times predicted in the Bible will unfold though we will not know the exact timing of these events. The book is divided into 12 lessons which can be done as self studies or group studies. It provides discussion points as well as questions to ensure understanding of each of the points. Mr. Anders gives his beliefs but yet provides other beliefs which differ from his in a nonconfrontational manner as well as reasons for each of the conflicting beliefs in a very well written way.
I enjoyed reading this book. In the context of one of his chapters Mr. Anders states, "For those readers for whom this material is familiar, it may seem as though we are laboring the issues." I am one of those readers that found this material very familiar but I don't feel that anyone most especially myself know all there is to know about end times and I found this book fascinating. There is always much to learn about end times prophesy before knowing all there is to know on this subject. Great book to be read and enjoyed by all those interested in what God has in store for us in the future.
