Reading a book about the end times written by an American is normally akin to an Englishman trying to explain the rules of baseball: wincingly horrible, messy and confusing! But not this little bad boy. Very, very good. Very simple. Buy it. Read it. Enjoy it. That's it.
Jeramie Rinnie has written a book on the end of the world that is humble, informative and irenic. It is humble in that he doesn’t force his personal views on us; it is informative in that he helps us understand what Christians should be certain of in these discussions; and it is irenic in helping us understand the various views that arise concerning the end times over which many Christians disagree. As such, Rinnie models for us how to speak about such controversial matters among brothers. And, of course, for those who have nagging questions about the end of the world, How will the world end? will be a great resource.
A great series and an excellent resource. Important issues tackled thoughtfully, carefully, thoroughly and biblically. You couldn't ask for anything more. So don't. Buy these and use them well.
It is far too easy for us to live our lives stuck in the moment, to assume this life is all we’ve got, to lose sight of the end that is coming. This book is an important corrective.... continue reading
This was a really insightful read. The book of revelation can be tricky to handle at the best of times. This book made things click into place and my heart feels more prepared for the day Jesus returns as a result of reading it.
'How Will the World End?' is excellent. Gives a balanced overview and puts into perspective how we should think about it now. God would have us live in the here and now; not gaze endlessly into a future where we can't know the precise details now. Christ will return but there's no brownie points for predicting when. This series is very good; try one for yourself.
This is a slim volume which gives a helpful resume of the key elements of the Lord's Return. It points out those ideas and theories which are not essential and should not divide Christians, while indicating those that are essential Evangelical doctrine and about which Scripture is clear.
Pastor Jeramie is a solid, Christ-loving pastor. In this book, he offers a balanced perspective of the four common views on how the world will end: pre-millennial, dispensational pre-millennial, amillennial, and post-millennial. He also explores common ways in which the book of Revelation is interpreted. At the end of it all, he reminds readers that end-times theology should not divide Christians, and he concludes with the indisputable facts: Christ will return, Christ will save us from eternal torment, and we can have great joy and hope in waiting for him!
IT WILL SURELY HELP US TO BE ALIVE SPIRITUALY AND WORK WITH GREAT EXPECTATION
