Publisher's Description

We live in a challenging cultural moment; there are reasons for great alarm and concern in society around us and it’s easy to lose heart. Yet the Christian hope of the last things, so wonderfully disclosed in the Scriptures and so certainly embodied in our risen Savior, is a beacon of beauty and glory shining on our way as we traverse the ugly and the gloomy. In this book, you will encounter encouraging messages that address the end times from a variety of perspectives (exegetically, topically, historically, and experientially).

Contributors include Michael P. V. Barrett, David Strain, Daniel Timmer, David P. Murray, Derek W. H. Thomas, Greg Salazar, Adriaan C. Neele, William VanDoodewaard, Joel R. Beeke, and Gerald Bilkes.

Editorial Reviews

“There have been times in the church’s history when the study of last things has been in vogue; the present day is not one of them. Hence, the vital necessity of this latest collection of essays, for the key events at the end of history, the triumph of Christ, and the cosmic establishment of the glorious city of God are central to the Bible’s historical narrative. This book is a great wake-up call to ponder afresh the great events that lie ahead and live lives of godly beauty in the light of them.” —Michael A. G. Haykin, chair and professor of church history, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“How envious we are—with a holy jealousy—of Christians in an earlier generation to ours who would walk home, hand in hand, at the end of a Lord's Day service, and, seeing the sun setting and the sky radiant with beauty, and full of the word and presence of Christ from the preaching that they had heard, they would naturally and instinctively be talking together of the return of the Lord Jesus Christ: 'What if it were tonight? We would see the face of our dear Savior!' For them it was a living hope. Did they have something essential that we have lost? I believe my life is poorer without this anticipation; let us strive to regain it. This book will truly help. Pray that this momentous event will be always the greatest reality of our futures." —Geoffrey Thomas, retired pastor, conference speaker, and prolific author
