From the Back Cover

What should Christians believe about the Antichrist?

Christians have always been fascinated with the Antichrist, but recently the interest seems to have reached an all-time high, with pop culture depictions and speculation leaving many people confused or even frightened. But what does the Bible really say? What have Christians throughout history believed about the Antichrist? Should we fear the Antichrist or such things as the mark of the Beast? Have some end-times prophecies already been fulfilled?

Pastor and professor Kim Riddlebarger carefully untangles the confusion surrounding this biblical doctrine. He considers common beliefs about the Antichrist and end times, closely examines the relevant scriptural passages, and explains how these passages have been interpreted historically by the church.

Pastors, professors, and concerned Christians seeking trustworthy guidance on the doctrine of the Antichrist will appreciate Riddlebarger's sound biblical approach.

"Beyond sensationalism and silliness, this book on the Antichrist corrects a tendency among a lot of us simply to ignore the topic. Riddlebarger writes with accessible prose, although there is always more research and analysis behind it than meets the eye. If you want to learn about this strange New Testament figure without all the hype usually associated with the genre, look no further. It's serious, interesting, well-informed, and edifying reading."--Michael Horton, professor of theology and apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

Kim Riddlebarger (Ph.D., Fuller Theological Seminary) is senior pastor of Christ Reformed Church in Anaheim, California, and visiting professor of systematic theology at Westminster Seminary California. He is also a cohost of the White Horse Inn radio program, a weekly broadcast on more than fifty radio stations.

Format: Paperback
In an age of uncertainty and an Apocalyptic warnings coming through the media, whether in fictional accounts produced by Hollywood, 'documentaries' and 'evidence' of global warming coming interestingly enough again from Hollywood, media accounts of the state of the war on terror, or mainstream Christian retailing of End Times novels, speculations, and conjecture, The Man Of Sin stands as a welcome resource for those who wish to look at what the Bible has to say about the Anti-christ.
Uncovering a truly biblical understanding of the Anti-christ is a daunting task when you begin to see all the presuppositions that have been attached to the person in all the fore-described media. But it is a task that Kim Riddlebarger faced head-on and, in my opinion, produced for us a Biblical picture of the Man of Sin.
The book begins with the immediate context of American culture as it relates to the Anti-christ. Dr. Riddlebarger draws a picture of the contemporary view of the Anti-christ and of the expectancies of what he will be and when he will appear and begins the task of separating fact from fiction.
He then provides an overview of the forerunners of the Anti-christ from the Old Testament. Riddlebarger's discussion of the many 'types' and foretellings of the Anti-christ found in the Old Testament lays the necessary foundation for understanding all that the Anti-christ has been foretold to embody in Scripture. Tracing these types from the serpent in Paradise, through Cain, Nimrod, Pharoah, Nebuchadnezzar, to Antiochus Epiphanes, and through the study of specific prophecies of the Anti-christ, Riddlebarger provides a comprehensive picture of the Anti-christ as expected by Jewish society before the time of Christ.

Format: Paperback
Riddlebarger's "Man of Sin" is the best resource on the subject I have encountered. As a layperson I found the book was persuasive and easy to read. Riddlebarger's previous title "A Case for Amillennialism" was a much more difficult read because I was less familiar with the scripture citations, and less scripture quotations and paraphrases were included in the text.

Raised on the campy and comical "Thief in the night" series during "Youth group" on Sunday Morning, I made several attempts through Revelation to try to see if the Bible taught these things. After realizing that I am hopelessly underfamiliar with apocalyptic literature and Old Testament scriptures and symbols, I looked elsewhere.

I've been troubled by both the futurist and preterist understanding of the Beast/Antichrist/Man of Sin. Riddlebarger has provided satisfactory resolution to all of my nagging concerns in this very narrow topic.

It would seem silly to describe this book as the final answer on all your Antichrist questions, given the historical diversity of interpretations. However, it is the best set of answers I have ever seen, and as a special bonus, they're all consistently laid out next to each other in one book :)! It will be the first resource I turn to when questions pop up.

I do have a complaint about the book. The book may not stand on its own. I wish it repeated a few pages of "A Case for Amillenialism"'s thorough debunking of Dispensational theology. Instead it includes a reference. Because this book is more sensationally interesting to my dispensationalist family members and friends, it may be easier to get them to read it, but it may lack persuasiveness because it fails to kill dispensationalism. Getting them to read two books is always harder.

Format: Paperback
Nicolae Carpathia, the Antichrist's given name by LaHaye and Jenkins in the Left Behind series, is anti-scriptural. We may be forgiven in thinking that more heresies have been spawned by this series than once did the gnostics of the second century. Yet, says Dr Kim Riddlebarger, 'Antichrist speculation is inevitable. We cannot escape it'. p 26 Dr Riddlebarger enters his foray into the Antichrist as presented by the mass media and something immediately becomes readily observable: man's preoccupation with the dark. Preying on our fears then becomes the questionable money-motive for much of the collaboration in the publication and production of a peculiarly prophetic genre, projecting onto us an unbiblical and anxious dread - with a way out. Riddlebarger critiques both the futurist and preterist presuppositions through a re-examination of their ethos.

Of great importance are three sections of Scripture crucial to gleaning a scriptural approximation of this enigmatic character: the Epistles of John, John's Apocalypse, and Paul's "man of lawlessness" in 2 Thess 2. Of lesser importance is Daniel's seventy weeks prophecy, which one misguided chiliast describes as 'the indispensable chronological key to all NT prophecy'. Admittedly, Riddlebarger does a great job with his exegesis of Daniel 9:27. Furthermore, Riddlebarger employs past theologians of great stature to great effect in an attempt to oust the consumption of fictional best-sellers, and replace them with a solid integration of gifted scholarly literature less accessible to consumer-frivolous Christians.

By now it becomes apparent that Riddlebarger believes that many antichrists have already come in the course of human history.
