I studied Revelations with this book before and loaned it to a friend and she studied it and we both loved it. I wanted to do a Bible Study using this book but my pastor said that this book alone isn't enough because it is one man's view of Revelations. I will be studying Revelations starting next September in BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) and am looking forward to it. I am going to use "Because the Time is Near" to start studying Revelations on my own starting this May to get ready for BSF. So, between the two studies I should have a better understanding of Revelations. Myrtle R. Hodgson
Unfortunately too many in this day and age have accepted futurism and preterism when it come s the interpretation of Daniel and Revelation. The Reformers followed true historicism principles which properly lead to correct conclusions. THe scriptures are not primarily about the Jews, but Jesus Christ Who is the Answer to all questions concerning humanity and sin.
We are using this book as a Bible Study along with John MacArthur's book, "Revelation" which lines up well with the book "Because the Time is Near". The book is an excelent read even if you aren't doing a Bible Study class.
This is a good introductory commentary to the book of Revelations. It is Premil & Pretrib, written in a very easy to read format. It is a popular commentary that anyone can pick up and profit from immensely.
