Amazon.com Review

In his thoughtfully-written treatise, End-Time Prophecies of the Bible, David Haggith collects and organizes all of the end-time prophecies into one useful continuum for those who are interested in divining the prophetic meaning of one of the great religious texts of human history. Allowing the reader to draw his or her own conclusions, yet providing insightful well-researched commentary, Haggith discourses on the significance of the changing millennium, soberly noting that Jesus was born, according to historians, 2004 to 2006 years ago, an error that was miscalculated into the original Gregorian calendar we now use. Quoting Jesus when he said, "I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am" (John 13:19), he advances the opinion that the purpose of prophecy is not to provide a road map to the future. Rather, its purpose is to enable listeners to recognize the workings of God in times of uncertainty when witnessing a prophecy manifesting before their eyes. --Randall Cohan

From Publishers Weekly

Popular Bible teacher Haggith has done conservative evangelical Christians a service by compiling all the biblical prophecies related to the end of time in one volume. Haggith believes that prophecy texts are a mystery that can be penetrated only dimly at present, and he invites readers to interpret prophecy for themselves. One of the most important features of his interpretation is his insistence that the prophecies are "not esoteric glimmers of future knowledge. They are deliberate echoes into the future, inspired by God and breathed out by men and women." Moving quickly from one passage to the next, Haggith emphasizes the human character of the prophets and the oral, spoken quality of their original messages. He also posits that the human nature of the writers only underscores the miraculous nature of the Bible. Haggith's volume should find a ready readership among conservative evangelical readers, serious Bible students and teachers of adult Sunday school. The author's confidence that the readers of his book will themselves be engaged in biblical interpretation gives the work an encouraging and useful tone. (Sept.)

I greatly enjoyed the commentary like way in which the book is written.
Contemplative Imaging
Whereas, End-Time prophecies of the Bible are a challenge even for bible scholars, Mr. Haggith approach is quite refreshing.

For those of you who are interested in the end-times prophecies of the Bible, here is a book that you need to put immediately on the top of your list. This is simply the best treatment of end-times prophecies I've ever come across, and anyone who wishes to understand these prophecies better, especially those in the books of Revelation, needs to buy and study this book.
And I do mean study. This is not one of those light little paperback affairs that spin a neat little tale of end-times events that can be read in just a couple of evenings. This book, at 546 pages, is exactly what it says it is: "a complete collection of visions and revelations of the end times from the Bible." You don't so much read this book as you enter a commitment with it. This is one of these rare gems that grows even more precious as the reader takes time to let all that is said sink in. A page-turner it is not, nor does it try to be; and as far as I'm concerned, it shouldn't be. The more time spent reading and contemplating everything that is said in this book, the better understanding one will come away with of end-times events.
I love reading books that attempt to explain end-times prophecy. Unfortunately, a majority of the books are woefully inadequate. Most are just pure garbage. The authors of many of these books are not so much attempting to commentate on the many aspects of end-times prophecy as they are attempting to sell you on their own personal interpretations and theology. And if they can throw in a few scripture passages in to support their position, all the better.
Here we have the inverse of that strategy. Rather than giving us his personal interpretation of end-times events, Mr.

Before I checked this book out from the library, I thought I was going to have to actually enroll in a theological program to study Revelation without the overwhelming biases of today's popular Christian culture. After rechecking it 3 times over a period of 2 months, I finally broke down and decided to buy it.
It is the singular best book I have found on end-times prophecy. Haggith strikes a balance I have rarely found in any Christian book, much less one on end-times. There is enough bible history and cross-referencing to give each passage a full context without turning it in a dry, scholarly "reference" book that never gets read. Contrary to an earlier reviewer, I did find it to be a "page-turner" as Haggith managed to draw me, in an intelligent, unemotional way, into the *story* of John's vision in a way no other book ever has.
More importantly, Haggith offers the Truth in a simple, unassuming way. There is no agenda, and hardly any "eschatological" jargon. He simply presents the passages, some possible conclusions, and makes sure to throw in the constant reminder that we can never really know for sure, lest we defeat the whole point of prophecy.
A wonderful book for anyone looking for something more than the end-times "soundbites" we tend to get in church. I would recommend this to readers from all denominations, and seekers looking for an intelligent discussion of one of the most visible Christian doctrines.

David Haggith must have spent a lot of time birthing this baby...it is massive in its size and scope. It has taken me some serious time to read and digest--and every moment was worth it.
"End-Time Prophecies of the Bible" has renewed my faith in the study of as yet unfulfilled prophecy. In recent years, the mention of "end-times" have sold a lot of books--most of them incredibly poor, bigoted, and shallow. This is not the case with Haggith's work.
In "End-Time Prophecies of the Bible" David Haggith has collected all of the passages which can possibly be thought to spoken of as "end-times" related, and has meditated on them in a serious, sober manner. There is no sensationalism to be had here...only a longing to grow closer to the God revealed in the Bible.
I had difficulty in several places. My biggest problem being that I prefer to use a more modern translation of the Bible. Yet, this book is rewarding. One need only keep at it.
Which brings me to another point--Haggith should receive a medal of some sort for the length of his book. Many publishers discourage so called "Christian" authors from writing books much longer than two hundred pages--it seems they think the average Christian reader too simple to handle much more than that...needless to say, I take issue with this position. I do not believe Haggith could have done as complete of a job with a shorter book. I applaud him for not trying to insult the reader's intelligence with any less.
I appreciate this book deeply. I therefore recommend it highly. I leave you with one of the closing passages of the book:
"Prophetic images go beyond doctrine. They are for meditating upon. They work in the domain of the subconscious.

Format: Paperback
Simply stated, DAVID HAGGITH has written the most exhaustive and spiritually mature book on eschatology that I have encountered. About five years ago, a gentleman who owned a mobile bookstore expressed his appreciation for me by insisting that I select any item from his stock. I had not heard of David Haggith, but because of my deep interest in Bible study, his tome, 'END-TIME PROPHECIES OF THE BIBLE' caught my eye. I can tell you without hesitation that I would have been every bit as pleased with my choice even if I had paid full price.

The first question that will be raised by people Biblically aware, but a bit naive is : Why study the Last Days when Jesus said that they will arrive like a thief in the night; no one knows the day or the hour of their coming, and they could be far into the future? There are several ideas to take into consideration here. First -- Jesus said, "Of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven." (Matt. 24:36) Note that He spoke specifically of days and hours, not necessarily decades or years. HAGGITH says on page 121 that looking at it this way is "being hyperliteral." I don't think so. Jesus chose His words carefully. Furthermore, what might have been unforeseeable two thousand years ago, may be quite perceivable now. Also, if it was still going to be unpredictable even when the age was nearly upon us, why did Jesus bother giving His closest apostles clues to watch for? In Matthew 24 & Mark 13, The Master tells Peter, James, John and Andrew the signs (situations) that will be prevalent on the Earth and related to the end of the world (AS WE KNOW IT!) and His imminent return. Why did He go to the trouble to elucidate the scenario if NO ONE would be capable of discerning the time?
