The author of Revelation prefaced his vision with the encouragement that the person who knows prophetic truths—and orders his life according to those truths—will live better now. The study of Bible prophecy:
- reminds us that God is sovereign.
- reminds us that God is good.
- motivates us to holy living.
- helps us establish proper priorities.
- gives us hope.
Paul Beware has these benefits in mind in this revised and expanded edition of his classic book. In this new edition, he addresses the confusion and conflict surrounding the topic of prophecy, provides a biblical framework to clarify different interpretations—including pre-, a-, and postmillennialism, and includes an entire chapter on preterism. He also provides insight that can help you understand how these different explanations of Scripture have the power to shape your faith and offers tools to help you develop discernment.
