- From a Dispensational perspective
- Written in response to World War I
Arno Clemens Gaebelein compiled these messages in order to put the events surrounding World War I into their biblical-prophetic context. He offers insight, relevance and a broad scriptural foundation to assist the reader in understanding the prophetic Word of God. Filled with the sure conviction that Christ "shall have dominion also from sea to sea and from the river unto the ends of the earth...all kings shall fall down before Him, all nations shall serve Him," he gives the reader confident reason to hope - even in the midst of great calamity.
About the Author
Arno Clemens Gaebelein (1861-1945) was born in Thuringia, Germany, immigrated to the United States, and settled in Lawrence Massachusetts. Early in his career he served as a Methodist minister, teacher, and conference speaker, but eventually left the Methodist church over issues of higher critical thought.
Gaebelein was a leader in the dispensationalist movement, and his books Revelation and Analysis and Exposition and Current Events in the Light of the Bible explain the dispensationalist view of eschatology. He also served as the editor of Our Hope, a Christian periodical, for a number of years and was a close assistant to Dr. Cyrus Ingerson Scofield on his monumental work, the Scofield Reference Bible.
