Great book for those of you who want to know what the heck is going on in our world. It really helped clear up some confusion I had about the end times, rapture of the church and other things. I know there are many different ideas and views out there, but it is more important to be on the right side...God's side!! In the end, we will all know how the end times is supposed to happen when we are raptured and standing before the throne of God. I am ready and looking forward to that day... Are you?
Why did I read this book?
Well, my parents got it and brought it home. I saw it and thought it looked interesting.
And I was right, this book has some very interesting things to say about things I didn't know...like the whole oil craziness, the European Union, Islamic terrorism and many other things. I've also been reading through Isaiah (few more chapters left!) with Jon Courson's commentary. This is the first time that I actually enjoy reading Isaiah, especially the prophecies for our time. God has been opening my mind and heart as I read through Isaiah and grow in understanding. Isaiah has left me wanting more! So, the arrival of this book was perfect timing!
Here's a sound bite from the book:
Never before have we read such jarring headlines, distressing news analyses, or dire predictions for our world. There are food shortages, record-high fuel prices, and natural disasters from volcanoes to cyclones. Longtime antagonists China and Japan announce a pledge of peace and friendship while a newly belligerent Russia makes pacts in the Middle East. The president of Iran claims Israel must be wiped off the map while world leaders sit by and say nothing.
When these kinds of stories continue to appear, we can't help but wonder... what in the world is going on?
Centuries ago, events such as these and much more were written about in the Bible -- prophecies regarding the final days of Earth's history. In a coherent timeline that identifies ten end-of-times events -- interpreted through the books of Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Matthew, Revelation, and others -- What in the World Is Going On? makes Bible prophecy and the warning signs abundantly clear.
Scrupulously researched and organized, these warnings are useful only if we heed them. There's peace in knowing what to expect, and Dr. Jeremiah offers words of encouragement while also reminding us how to live in the meantime -- watch, work and wait.
