The Bible has an amazing record of being right about the future. It fact it has never been wrong, not once, ever.Therefore when god, through his word, tells us what is in store for our planet, the whole of humanity, and each of us as individuals, we should sit up and take notice because all the evidence tells us that this is what will happen and it affects us directly.
The Bible has an amazing record of being right about the future. In fact it has never been wrong, not once, ever.
Therefore when God, through his Word, tells us what is in store for our planet, the whole of humanity, and each of us as individuals, we should sit up and take notice because all the evidence tells us that this is what will happen and it affects us directly.
What does the future hold? This is a question that concerns many people in these days of uncertainty. Yet for others, to live for today, with no thought at all to the future, is all that matters. Surely the sensible approach is to investigate the answers and live in the light of them, rather than stick our head in the sand.
There is much we may never know about the future, but Peter Bloomfields new book, What the Bible Teaches about the Future, can certainly give us some understanding of what is certain about it. He doesnt evade the tough questions or regurgitate what many Christians would consider common knowledge. He discusses such topics as the fall of Israel, the Israeli nations role in end-time events, and the significance of the number 666not exactly easy stuff. With every assertion, his interpretation and explanation of what is foretold in Scripture is reinforced by citing verses, contextual and cultural background information, and etymology. Not only that, but he also encourages readers to examine the Scripture references, citing the main passage of discussion at the beginning of each chapter.
Peter Bloomfield, who is a recently retired minister from Australia and the author of several other study books, including The Guide to Job, The Guide to Esther, and The Guide to Judges, has the wide variety of experience and the depth of knowledge of the Scriptures that would be necessary to accurately and knowledgeably write on this subject. He does make some claims in this book that many Americans would not agree with respect to Dispensationalism, which is primarily an American ideology. In the U.K., it is more common to find Amillennialism.
If individuals dont mind sifting through his views on those subjects for some of the valuable and interesting ideas he has, then I would certainly recommend this book. Its very easy to read and has some fascinating insights on some of the less discussed aspects of the end times. It would also make an interesting book for a discussion group, like a Bible study or book club. Shannon Christine Potelicki, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
