Because of the prominence of prophecy in Scripture, many excellent books have appeared dealing with prophetic subjects. However, the treatment has often been either apologetic or expository in nature, which has left prophetic themes to be developed individually apart from their relation to the whole revealed prophetic program. Thus, much of our knowledge has remained only fragmentary and unrelated. Dr. Dwight Pentecost's monumental work, Things to Come, has changed this situation dramatically. In this detailed and highly successful study, Dr. Pentecost has synthesized the whole field of prophecy into a unified biblical exposition, arriving at a systematic and complete biblical eschatology. Things to Come offers a comprehensive and accessible presentation of biblical prophecy for pastors, scholars, and interested laypersons who want to know more about this fascinating subject.
An encyclopedic reference work on biblical prophecy, this highly successful book explores the basis of interpretation, biblical covenants, prophecies of this age and its end, the tribulation, the second advent, the millennium, and the eternal state. Includes an extensive bibliography and index.
J. Dwight Pentecost is distinguished professor emeritus of Bible exposition of Dallas Theological Seminary. He is the author of numerous books including Prophecy for Today, Things to Come, and Things Which Become Sound Doctrine.
