Book Review: 40 Questions about The End Times

There seem to be two groups of people when it comes to The End Times. One group wants to discuss and debate them with as much vigor as is humanly possible, convinced that there is only one possible interpretation for every end times reference in the Bible. The other group is content with the truth that “Jesus is coming back to rule and reign” and doesn’t really concern itself with exactly how that will happen. Count me in the second group. My position there is why 40 Questions about The End Times by Eckhard Schnabel was such a helpful book to me. It didn’t get bogged down with labels (post-trib pre-mill dispensationalist), instead focusing on specific issues (the Mark of the Beast,  the battle of Armageddon, etc) and what the Bible says about them. This book will now be my go-to resource on End Times questions and is ideal for the personal library of both pastors and laypersons.

I must add one caveat, however. If you are looking for a book to confirm the rightness of your particular belief about the end times, this is probably not the book for you. It’s far more concerned with what the Bible actually says than endorsing a particular end times philosophy. This is a very good thing, though. We should always come to the Bible ready to have our preconceptions changed based on the truth of God’s Word.
