Are we living in the last days?
Are you confused by all the speculation out there about the end times?
Are you frustrated with how often the predictions fail?
Has the "Left Behind" interpretation left you unsatisfied?
Do you want to know what Jesus really said about the end of the age?
Then this controversial hard-hitting book of shocking revelations is for you!
What does the Bible really say about the end times?
There are so many Christians teaching outrageous speculation about end times Bible prophecy these days. It's enough to frustrate the serious Bible student. What if you found out most of it is simply mistaken? What if you found out that the ancient Jewish writers were using Old Testament imagery of the past, not a crystal ball gaze into our modern future?
What if you found out that everything that modern prophecy pundits are looking for - the Rapture, the Tribulation, the Antichrist, the Beast - was not what they told you it was, but something different?
The truth about Bible prophecy.
Respected biblical author Brian Godawa draws from Evangelical theological scholarship and deconstructs the popular "Left Behind" interpretation to uncover a far more fascinating and far more Biblical view of end times Bible prophecy. One that rescues the original ancient Jewish context of prophecies from being hostage to modern prophecy speculators.
Don't worry, what Godawa unveils is controversial, but it's not new. It's not his own personal theory. He's not a cult leader with a bizarre vision from God. What he reveals has a long tradition of godly Bible scholarship behind it. It's just not what you've been taught. And it's rooted in interpreting the Bible through the Bible, not through newspaper exegesis.

Reasonable & Logical Alternative View for the Open
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.
OT and Olivet reveal the past - not the future.
