Eckhard Schnabel in his new book, “40 Questions About the End Times” Book Four in the 40 Questions Series published by Kregel Publications tackles common questions about the final period before Christ’s second coming.
From the back cover: Organized in an accessible FAQ format, 40 Questions About the End Times tackles common questions about the final period before Christ’s second coming. In his clear, balanced style, Eckhard Schnabel cuts through the confusion and hype to offer meaningful answers through analysis of the relevant biblical texts as well as theological and practical conclusions. Questions include: Who are the 144,000 in Revelation 7? Will the Church disappear in a rapture to heaven? Does national Israel have a special destiny? What will happen to believers on the day of judgment?
There are lots of commentators on the Bible book of Revelation out there. Some are good, some are not so good and not everyone is in agreement about what this book means. Revelation is the last book of the Bible and the only one that has a blessing attached for the reader. John was on the island of Patmos, under arrest, when he was given a series of revelations about the future. He then had to write about these future events using terms that was available to him at the time. Because of this some of what he wrote is difficult to understand. In this book Dr. Schnabel attempts to make it easier for the reader to grasp the real meaning of the book. The book is arranged in four parts,
1. General Questions about the Future, 2. The Return of Jesus Christ, 3. The Millenium and Last Judgment, 4. Interpreting the End Times. At the end of each chapter is a summary and further “Reflection Questions”. This book is a resource that will be used over and over again. I recommend this book highly.
