Product Description

HOW TO SURVIVE THE END OF THE WORLD explores an ancient apocalyptic vision--the Revelation of Jesus Christ to the Apostle John--in a fresh, invigorating way. Instead of arcane theories and timelines, it approaches this two-thousand-year-old revelation of ''the end times'' the way it was meant to be seen and received--as a survivor's guide: an encouraging and equipping message that will prepare readers for the end...whenever it comes. Unlike most approaches to what many consider a confusing and frightening book, How to Survive the End of the World will bless you, inform you, and make your daily life better, fuller, and richer.

    I read "How to Survive the End of the World" because of the title. The subtance of the book is true to the title. The "Revelation" is not the most difficult writing in the Bible but it is the most controversial. The strength of this book is that it focuses on the central message of the "Revelation." The author by zeroing in on what is crystal clear in the introduction, development, and conclusion of the "Revelation" cuts through the controversy and helps the reader respond to the message as God wants us to respond. If you have not read the "Revelation" or have given up on understanding it, then this book is especially for you. It is not an in depth Bible study, but it is evident that it is well researched. If you have studied the "Revelation" for years, this book will not take you deeper in your overall understanding of the letter, but you will find some valuable nuggets that present difficult truths in fresh, clear, succinct ways. The author takes a few detours, but overall does an excellent job of being true to the message of the letter, and to the meaning of the texts he quotes. I recommend "How to Survive the End of the World" to new and experienced readers of the revelation of Jesus Christ.

    There is a lot of talk about the end of the world these days. It instills fear in some. But it doesn't have to be that way, writes Hostetler. We can't change how or when the world will end, but, if you know how to survive it, "it can actually be the best of all beginnings." (5)

    He explores The Revelation as "a survivor's guide, a message of blessing and hope, and a tool that will thoroughly prepare you for the end _ whenever it comes." (5)

    Hostetler shows how the opening words of The Revelation give three powerful instructions: feel blessed, focus on Jesus, feel His touch. With that introduction, he goes through The Revelation section by section.

    The letters to the churches reveal that God knows us, as well as twelve imperatives for those who want to be ready for the end of the world.

    The next chapters get us oriented to worship in relation to the throne of God.

    The seven seals help us recognize the evil around us and realize that it will not overrun us. The golden censer shows us what happens with prayer. The seven shofars may reveal what happens when we don't pray, or perhaps that we are to pray for justice, or that we are to pray because these things are going to happen.

    Chapters 10 and 11 emphasize the importance of gospel proclamation and Christian witness in the end times. Chapters 12 and 13 offer three revealing perspectives. Chapter 14 yields a new vision of three redeeming practices to apply.

    Hostetler goes on to reveal the encouragement found in the rest of The Revelation. He sees this book as last minute reminders of truly important things, especially in light of the approaching end of all things. (114)

    A prayer is offered at the end of each chapter, instilling the encouraging truth into the spiritual life of the reader.

    If you want to identify the Antichrist or know when the (supposed) rapture will take place, this is not the book for you. But, if you desire to experience the blessing and encouragement The Revelation holds, then I recommend this book.

    As Hostetler says about Chapter 15: "So, yes, the world is going to pot. Yes, our culture is corrupt. Yes, things may be getting worse in many ways, but that is all the more reason to sing and pray and listen to God in worship." (148) Wise words.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
