Even-handed, biblical, and broadly accessible answers to the most frequently asked questions abut the return of Christ
This newest contribution to the 40 Questions series continues the tradition of excellent research presented in accessible language and clear writing. Designed for both students and general readers, this resource helps them make sense of one of the Bible's most difficult topics.
Schnabel, a professor at a leading seminary and the author of several major works, looks at the future of the world, the church, and Israel; the return of Jesus; and the millennium and the final judgment. He answers questions related to the rapture, the 144,000, the identity of the two witnesses, Armageddon, how to interpret Revelation, heaven and hell, and so forth.
The result is an even-handed treatment that avoids sensationalism and a "newspaper headline" approach to prophecy, that is, interpreting prophecy according to current events. Rather, Schnabel carefully studies the biblical text in light of its first-century context and draws biblically-based conclusions.
Other volumes in the 40 Questions series include 40 Questions About Elders and Deacons by Benjamin Merkle, 40 Questions About Interpreting the Bible by Robert Plummer, and 40 Questions About Christians and Biblical Law by Thomas Schreiner.
