Before landing on the highway that is "gracious" (in his introduction) -or encountering the flash of light that greets us as we turn the page, we may think it impossible for any self-respecting believer to presume upon God for a clue into His times and seasons of history and . . . the apocalypse.But what if the Lord has left a secret set of timers in the center of the Apocalypse (John's Revelation)-sets of "clocks," as the author calls them, for the terminal generation? And . . . what if these clocks are elastic (flexible)? Could this really be one reason why Jesus said that no one but the Father knows the exact day of His returning?If this is so, what season now defines the future of the world's remaining super power? It is here that F.T. Chisholm has sharpened his pencil to again unpack a description of these clocks that telescope deep into the biblical Apocalypse; this time focusing on the courtship between Heaven and earth-while zeroing in more carefully on the relationship between the people of this very special nation, and the God of love.Against this backdrop he ventures down a path less traveled, taking us on a whirlwind tour through John's Revelation; first confirming the uneasiness felt in the night, as our world seems to race into the future just a little faster than any of us finds comfortable (future shock)- while concluding his startling discoveries with the Blessed Hope.A must read for anyone seriously considering the destiny of these United States.
