Many Christians think of end-times prophecy as a gigantic, intimidating puzzledifficult to piece together and impossible to figure out. But every puzzle can be solved if you approach it the right way.
Paul Benware compares prophecy to a picture puzzle. Putting the edge pieces together first builds the 'framework' that makes it easier to fit the other pieces in their place. According to Benware, the framework for eschatology is the biblical covenants. He begins his comprehensive survey by explaining the major covenants. Then he discusses several different interpretations of end-times prophecy.
Benware digs into the details of the Rapture, the Great Tribulation, the judgements and resurrections, and the millennial kingdom. But he also adds a unique, personal element to the study, answering questions as:
- Why study bible prophecy?
- What difference does it make if I'm premillenial or amillenial?
Sojourner5 Stars Out Of 5A Great BookMay 18, 2017SojournerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is an excellent, comprehensive overview of eschatology. Benware argues from a pretribulational, premillennial perspective, but he is fair to the other positions. Rather than begin with the dispensations, Benware first examines important covenants (which are unconditional) between God and the nation of Israel. These covenants, he believes, are the framework for understanding the position he takes.
Steven Hernandez1 Stars Out Of 5Doesn't teach a sensible reading of scriptureMay 9, 2013Steven HernandezUnfortunately the book is based on a common presupposition that the Bible does not actually mean what it says. When Jesus is speaking to His disciples or others we need to consider how those hearing those words would have understood them. Re-reading the Bible while respecting the normal rules of reason and audience relevance (what would the words have meant to their original recipients, 2000 years ago in that culture) one comes quickly to a different conclusion than the author. When we read the Bible we still means we and you still means you and soon still means soon.

jtmovies91BarnwellAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5good book abou the end of timesJuly 10, 2012jtmovies91BarnwellAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Bible prophecy continues to fascinate, never more than in troubled times of war and natural disasters. But why study Bible prophecy? What does it mean if a person is premillennial or amillennial, believes in the Rapture, or knows who or what the Beast of Revelation is? Benware's framework for understanding Bible prophecy is based on the four biblical covenants: Abrahamic, Palestinian, Davidic, and New. This book is a reference for seminary and college students, and those curious about the various views of end times prophetic events and biblical proof behind them.
