"In the midst of eschatological debates and arguments, this book provides a refreshingly fair and irenic approach to a difficult and sensitive topic. It will certainly help the reader to understand the breadth of theological issues involved in discussing the end times. Most importantly, it places the reader's attention on the issue the Scriptures emphasizes: the glory of God and His faithfulness to His Word. Having this biblical perspective makes this book a must read for those in the church to rightly grasp the content and beauty of eschatology.--Dr. Abner Chou, Master's College, Santa Clarita, CA
"For decades, Christians have taken one side or another in the interpretation of the Bible's future events. I like the 'different views' approach because it allows believers to think and decide for themselves. Timothy's work avoids speculative extremes and helps us understand end-times prophecy from start to finish. I love the charts, diagrams, and pictures!"--Dr. Hal Seed, founding pastor, New Song Community Church, author of Future History: Understanding the Book of Daniel and End Times Prophecy
"It doesn't take long for a discussion of the end times to get kooky, hyper-complex, or both. If you're afraid to talk about the last days because you're afraid you'll wind up gazing at byzantine prophecy charts or listening to someone talk about how you ought to be storing up food and weapons, this book is for you. Timothy Paul Jones, one of the most brilliant scholars in the Christian world, takes the words of Jesus seriously, all of them, including the ones about the end. He takes them so seriously that he refuses to hide them under a bushel of scholarly jargon or of sensationalistic hype. Read and be blessed."--Russell D. Moore, Provost, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

I have a large home library of Rose Publishing books and pamphlets. All of them are VERY useful for quickly and concisely understanding the Bible as a whole. I refer to them over and over. I use them frequently as teaching tools. Rose Publishing is very careful to stay true to the Bible text and to Christian History. All the Rose Publishing illustrations are high quality, Biblically accurate, and visually pleasing and easy to comprehend.
I am a not a Biblical scholar, but eschatology has always held a fascination for me. The first chapter of this book is appropriately titled, "Keeping Your Eyes On The Right End" and does council the reader that the most important focus of all Bible study, especially eschatology, is keeping your eyes on Christ. As is pointed out in the text, so many times we look to hot-topics such as eschatology or Calvinism vs. Arminianism in our study and discussion; we lose focus on what is truly important and place God on a shelf away from the study.
I found the presentation of the book to be of great help in understanding the different viewpoints of the end-times prophecy. Although I believe that this book is understandable to anyone, it has been written to be of great value to everyone, it is not "Eschatology for Dummies."
The information has been presented in an even-handed way, not leaning toward one view or another. I had come to my own conclusion, but I wanted a clear understanding of how others support their eschatological beliefs. This book does that and it challenged me to dig deeper into scripture. (Edit: 12/21/11 - My ONLY complaint, after reading through this several times, is that it could have been written at a higher level. The format and information are great but it reads as though it is all new information, maybe at a high school level. Still, I'll keep it at 5 stars).
This is also a book that can be a good resource to refer back to time after time.
Bottom line is I liked this book very much. And, as the author states, always keep your eyes on the right end.
