The Old Testament is a history. It doesn't have a future fulfillment The account of Jesus in the Olivet Discourse was to predict the destruction of the temple after his death and resurrection, a few years later. With such an expansive title: End Times Bible Prophecy, it should have dealt with Revelation too. Is any of it history? If it is, how much is in the future? Both of them are important questions! That wasn't covered in this fairly lengthy book.

The author and I share a similar journey due to our similar ages. Back in the 70s, The Late Great Planet Earth along with Jack Van Impe scared the bejebees out of me, as a boy, with their confidently sounding conjecture and speculation. And, I remember the "Countdown" in the 1980s. All I can say is, if you are tired of the incessant, futile, non-sense of persons trying to fit modern headlines into sacred text while ignoring history, context, and the original audience, then you have come to the right place in Brian's "End Times...." The benefit of reading Brian's in-depth discussion on the Preterist view: It is like someone giving you your bible back and allowing you to actually *understand* what Jesus was saying, *who* he was saying it to, and what transpired shortly thereafter. Matthew 24 was Jesus confronting the unbelief head on and with dire warnings of consequential disaster. You'll see Jesus as a politically incorrect Warrior, as well as, The Lamb. Words like "generation," "you", "quickly", "at-hand" will become perfectly clear and lose their nebulous, transcendiary shroud of mystique and confusion. If you are able to put aside any bias and preconceptions of the Last Days, then I think you will find the book thought-provoking and, perhaps, it may even change your mind about some things.

If you could sum up End Times Bible Prophecy in three words, what would they be?
Partial-Preterist view of the 'End-Times'.
Any additional comments?
The many references to some events spoken of in Revelation and Matthew 24 etc as to be coming soon or in that generation make a lot more sense if they are referring to the destruction of the Temple and the New Covenant replacing the Old. A lot hinges on the dating of Revelation, which would have to be before the destruction of the Temple in A.D. 70.
Soon, surely can't mean 2000 years, can it? This view still leaves the 2nd Coming as future in line with the Nicene creed: 'He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.'
Great book, well worth getting for an easy to understand, alternative look at a sometimes confusing topic. I listened to it in a day and will no doubt listen to it again in the future.
