Why the End is Not Near
The sky is not falling, though popular opinion seems to always suggest otherwise. While it appears as if everyone—from evangelical preachers to radical environmentalists—expects the end of the world to come very soon in a quite dreadful and dramatic fashion, the Scriptures give us a view of the future that is altogether hopeful and optimistic.
In Why the End is Not Near: A Refutation of End-Times Hysteria, a former Baptist minister and premillenial dispensationalist explores the origins of these modern doctrines of pessimism, and points the reader to find in the Bible a much happier outlook regarding the success of the gospel and the growth of Christ’s kingdom.
The “Answers in an Hour” series is a collection of short, easily digestible books written with the inquirer in mind. These little books provide brief studies of various topics of interest to Christians who seek instruction that is grounded in biblical theology.
