This audiobook attempts to show that much of what we know about the Antichrist, such as his destruction of the enemies of Israel in Daniel 11:40-45, his seven-year covenant, his rebuilding of the temple and starting the daily sacrifice, his eventual stopping of the sacrifices and sitting in the temple to accept worship, his making Jerusalem the capital of the world, even his promotion by the False Prophet (which this audiobook argues, claims to be Elijah) all points to the conclusion that his goal is to deceive the world into believing that the Messiah has come, that the Messiah is in fact God, and that he deserves the worship of the world. This audiobook will argue for this view in great detail and give special attention to objections to it.
This audiobook also argues that the little-known eschatological (end-time) beliefs of the Jewish theologians, according to the Talmud and other rabbinic writings, seem to encourage Jews to accept as Messiah a man with the exact characteristics of the Antichrist. Similarly, that Islamic beliefs about the end times, as related in the Quran and the hadiths (the sayings of Muhammad), will cause them to play a very important role in the Antichrist's rise to power.
Though this view is the earliest view of the church, it has been almost totally forgotten in recent years. If it is true, it would mean the deception of Satan in the end times will be far more potent than many of us have ever imagined.

the Study of Eschatology
Eschatology* is the study of "end times", specifically as it relates to the Bible and world events.
*This book is for those who have a serious interest in this subject only.
The title lets us know that his major point of study for this book, is the nature and origin of the "anti-Christ". This "person's" identity has been the subject of the three Abrahamic religions, and is frequently mentioned in the eschatological texts of all three's sacred scriptures.
Chris White is well-read in the field of eschatology. He has a bible study podcast which examines various issues surrounding the bible, with an emphasis on biblical "end-times". (I believe his career occupation however, is that of an Attorney at Law. This is evidenced by the compelling arguments he is able to make, and his clear presentation of facts, and separating speculations for examination.)
He understands most of the major arguments about biblical prophecy, and states them in a clear and concise manner. He presents his views in comparison and contrast to the other most commonly held views, and then explains why he feels his position is better. He creates compelling arguments, underscored by biblical supports.

Reformed Study of Biblical Prophecy
Would you listen to False Christ: Will the Antichrist Claim to Be the Jewish Messiah? again? Why?
Absolutely. There are so many details, citations and quotes from various sources as well as the Bible, that one listen is simply not enough to absorb all of the depth included in this book.
What did you like best about this story?
The plausibility and the way it answers to so many confusing and often times, what appear to be irrelevant Biblical passages.
Have you listened to any of Chris White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
While this is the first Audiobook on Audible by Chris White, he has been producing narration driven videos for years. This one by far is the most high quality both in delivery and content.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I think the tagline is in the title. But if I had to choose:
"A Fresh New Look at the Identity of the Antichrist"
Any additional comments?
Chris has done a marvelous job of working against the conventionally accepted pop views of many interpretations concerning Biblical prophecy to show that from a Biblical perspective, his view is sound and consistent. While many will be unable to accept the views presented in this book outright, a fair hearing of the evidence will cause any skeptic of this view to reconsider their position.
We have to remember that any time we are making speculative projections of how the world will turn out, especially concerning the things revealed to us through prophecy, we ought to keep an open mind and consider all possibilities. After all, the way in which the end of the age will unfold is not based upon our terms, but on His!
