Product Description

End-times images are everywhere from books, movies, to video games. Curiosity about the last days is rampant, and people are asking all kinds of questions: "Who is the anti-Christ?" "Will Jesus actually rapture his church?" "What is the role, if any, of the nation of Israel?" And most importantly, "Are we living in the end times?"

In this insightful book, Samuel Powell explores all these questions and more. He traces end-times beliefs from the days of the Old Testament to today and explains the origins of the most popular ideas. Drawing on his theological expertise, Dr. Powell then offers an alternative approach to interpreting biblical prophecies that takes into account the Bible's purpose. He explains that the deeper meaning of prophetic literature is often overlooked in favor of more popular and provocative interpretations.

An excellent resource for pastors, teachers, and small-group leaders, this concise book dispels much of the confusion surrounding end-times thinking. As an added bonus, the book includes a chapter listing the top mistakes made about the end times, along with a helpful glossary.
