Product Description

Many Christians think of end-times prophecy as a gigantic, intimidating puzzle—difficult 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?
If what the Bible says about the future puzzles you, Understanding End Times Prophecy will help you put together the pieces and see the big picture.

This book is a remarkably readable, clear, concise, and yet comprehensive discussion of future events.  It is the best volume of its kind on the subject--whether for individual study, group discussion, or as a course text.
-Thomas H. Cragoe, ThD, Interim Chair and Associate Professor of Bible, Cedarville University

For those seeking the broad panoramic view of future things, Understanding End Times Prophecy provides a valuable resource.  Benware, a veteran college teacher and conference speaker, effectively and clearly explains key definitions and critical issues related to the biblical narrative of prophetic truth.
-W. Sherrill Babb, President, Philadelphia Biblical University

The drama of biblical eschatology is often a technical and complex subject that can be bewildering to the uninitiated.  Dr. Paul Benware has offered a vital service by providing a compass to navigate the challenging prophetic terrain.  Understanding End Times Prophecy makes accessible an otherwise formidable and confusing subject.
-J. Gregory Behle, Professor of Christian Education, The Master's College, Sun Valley, Calif.

One of the finest works of its kind on the subject.  Dr. Benware's revision will bring prophecy students up to speed on new eschatological issues that are now having a negative effect on the doctrines that deal with the return of the Lord.
-Mal Couch, President, Tyndale Seminary, Fort Worth, Tex.

Millions have read the Left Behind books and have been inspired at this fictionalized rendering of the End Times.  Bible prophecy must be understood from a biblical foundation of God's covenants and His character.  Dr. Benware's book is a must for the student of God's Word to gain an understanding of the various views of the end times.  Read this book with an open Bible and stand in awe of our God and His plan for mankind.
-Brent D. Garrison, President, Southwestern College, Phoenix, Ariz.

Conflict, contradiction, and confusion: All words that describe current perspectives on end-times prophecy.  Thankfully, Dr. Paul Benware has provided a map to guide us out of the interpretive chaos and into a sound understanding of what the Bible has to say about the future.  Balanced, fair, and easy to understand, Dr. Benware has produced the single best text on eschatology.
-Michael Rydelnik, Professor of Jewish Studies, Moody Bible Institute, Author of Understanding the Arab-Israeli Conflict
