Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Uriah Smith (1832–1903) was a Seventh-day Adventist author and editor who worked for the Review and Herald (an Adventist periodical)for 50 years. He was a gifted church leader—a teacher, writer, editor, poet, hymn writer, inventor, and engraver. Uriah Smith produced many of the first illustrations that appeared in the Review and Herald. He also wrote a number of books, one of which, Daniel and the Revelation, became the classic text on Seventh-day Adventist end time beliefs. Uriah Smith was also an inventor, patenting such diverse things as an artificial leg with a moveable ankle and a school desk with an improved folding seat. He died in 1903, while on his way to work.

This is a different perspective on the meanings of Christian Prophecy, it is essentially an updated version of "Issaac Newtons" work on prophecy. Neither work is read by contemporary Christians but probably should be. If you are interested in another view of prophecy before "Left Behind" brainwashed the church start here, I think you'll be surprised. FYI, I'm not a 7th Day Adventist, I'm a Calvinist and I still think this title is well worth reading!, Yes, I am beginning to think the US is the final beast spoken of in Revelation 13, especially in light of the interpretations this author gave 100 years ago where he said the government would start eliminating evidence of the Christian founding of this country in preparation of wiping us out.

Prophecy is a fluid, and interpretive discipline; and because the future is not writ, I respectfully disagree with the author. YMMV.

I believe that, since the US did not exist during the Bible's creation, the outcome of a yet to be defined entity was, problematic. In all honesty - I started reading this publication, but I could not complete due to my disagreements in philosophic differences with author.

The identification of the last beast to the US is not new and rather well presented here. However, the interpretation of the mark of the beast and the sabbath is really stretched. The Bible is so precise on this that I would expect this to be litteral: a mark on the hand.

Moreover, this is really a US centric document. The author bloats US achievements, seems to ignore the presence of natives before the arrival of Europeans and dismisses Asia. This tends to discredit the rest of the presentation. Interpretation of prophecy should not be manipulated to have it say what you want to hear.
