I think, too, it is important to note that James defines his terms before his exposition, an important qualifier that has been lost with several of the recent published books on the subject. Like Hitchcock, he allows the reader to come to their own conclusion about some of the more debated topics revolving around the end times.
Another thing to highlight about why this book stands out is the length. It is not a long dissertation using deep theological terms only understood in distinct circles, but instead is easy to understand for anyone who is searching for a well thought out explanation for Scripture's stance on the topic.
I strongly recommend this purchase from anyone who is curious about what the Bible has to say about the end times and last days.
(While you're at it, buy Evidence Unseen as well!)
Endless Hope or Hopeless End is a well-thought out explanation for the Bible's view of the end times. The flow of the book starts out explaining if Biblical prophecy is even something that's reliable or worth believing. This section of the book contained detailed explanations of prophecies not only about Jesus, but also many other prophecies that have been fulfilled about cities, world empires, and nations that can be confirmed through history and archeology. From there, Rochford goes on to explain basic rules for interpretation and different views people have when it comes to interpreting scripture, followed up by explaining the Millenial Kingdom, rapture, tribulation, and the second coming of Christ!
What I loved most about this book was how easy it was to follow the train of thought that was being laid out by the book. And the fact that Rochford addressed many points-of-view in this book, not only his own. The illustrations and modern analogies made the more difficult concepts he was explaining way more easy to understand. Would recommend to anyone who is wanting to learn more about the Bible's view of the end times, or even understanding different views when interpreting scripture!
Opposed to just diving into what the Bible has to say in Revelation, Rochford gives case after case of Biblical prophecy that has already been fulfilled and how it allows us to put our faith in what is yet to come.
Taking a daunting and sometimes seemingly abstract topic and making it manageable and easier to understand, Rochford allows readers to better understand that if we have our faith in Christ, we don't have to fear for what is yet to come. An awesome read for someone trying to understand what the Bible has to say about end times without feeling overwhelmed by all the symbolism and details.
