Understanding End Times Prophecy

Also Available In

Bible prophecy continues to fascinate, nevermore than in troubled times ^of war and natural disasters. But why study Bible prophecy? What does it mean if ^a person is premillenial or amillenial, 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.
DR. PAUL BENWARE (B.A., Los Angeles Baptist College, Th.M., Dallas ^Theological Seminary, Th.D., Grace Theological Seminary) is currently teaching in ^the Bible department at Southwestern College in Pheonix, Arizona. A former faculty ^member of the Los Angeles Baptist College (now the Master's College) and Chicago's ^Moody Bible Institute, Dr. Benware has continued to be involved in several local ^churches, often holding pastoral or staff positions. Dr. Benware is the author ^of seven books including Understanding End Times Prophecy, The Believer's Payday, ^surveys of both the Old and New Testaments, and a newly published commentary on ^the Book of Daniel, as well as numerous articles published in journals and magazines. ^ Dr. Benware lives with his wife, Anne, in Litchfield Park, Arizona. They have ^four children and six grandchildren.
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
