Bible prophecy continues to fascinate, never more than in troubled times of war and natural disasters. But why study Bible prophecy? What does it mean if a person is premillennial or amillennial, believes in the Rapture, or knows who or what the Beast of Revelation is? Benware's framework for understanding Bible prophecy is based on the four biblical covenants: Abrahamic, Palestinian, Davidic, and New. This book is a reference for seminary and college students, and those curious about the various views of end times prophetic events and biblical proof behind them.
Do you think what happens in the future doesn't matter today? Think again. The author of Revelation prefaced his vision with the encouragement that the person who knows prophetic truths--and orders his life according to those truths--will live better "now." The study of Bible prophecy ... reminds us that God is sovereign. ... reminds us that God is good. ... motivates us to holy living. ... helps us establish proper priorities. ... gives us hope. Paul Beware has these benefits in mind in this revised and expanded edition of his classic book. In this new edition he addresses the confusion and conflict surrounding the topic of prophecy, provides a biblical framework to clarify different interpretations--including pre-, a-, and postmillennialism, and includes an entire chapter on preterism. He also provides insight that can help you understand how these different explanations of Scripture have the power to shape "your" faith and offers tools to help you develop discernment. 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, Th.D.

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.
