Calvary Press The End Times Made Simple: How Could Everybody Be So Wrong About Biblical Prophecy?

Rapture? Pre-Trib? Post-Trib? Millenium? Confused? You should be! In today's Evangelical Christian world, eschatology--or the study of the "last things"--has been turned into a sort of pseudo-science with a plethora of authors claiming to know exactly the scenario of events that are to take place just prior to the Lord Jesus Christ's return. Samuel Waldron's thesis is that there is This Age, and The Age to Come..we will be, or are, in either one or the other. Any "End Times" system that forms a hybrid of these two, or contradicts this simple formula, is unbiblical, and should be rejected.

For the believer who is confused about what the Bible teaches regarding the End Times, who is willing to check every reference given by an author, and willing to give up his/her presuppositions if their long-held beliefs are proven wrong, this book will prove to be an astounding help. Simply trying to read through The End Times Made Simple will not prove beneficial. But look up every reference offered by Dr. Waldron and you will see that his arguments are incontrovertable. My only criticism is that the subtitle is not helpful: so many can be so wrong because we have an enemy who does NOT want us to embrace the Truth.

This is a great book, devoid of the silliness that characterizes far too many books on eschatology. To claim as one "reviewer" that "there is not much in the way of Biblical understanding in the system displayed in this book" and then give it 1/2 star betrays a review without a reading of the book. If one wants to understand prophecy biblically without sensationalistic hype, one will find this book a great aid.

There is not much in the way of Biblical understanding in the system displayed in this book. For a better understanding of Biblical prophesy, pick up a great book by David Jeremiah called, "Escape the Coming Night", or "What In The World Is Going On?".

This was a very well written book. The dispensational premillenianist view breaks down with Sam's simple, straightforward references to Scripture. I personally had not been very well versed in amillenialism until this book was presented to me. I believe that Sam makes a very solid argument for the biblical amillenialist view.

Although the author doesn't directly say it, Waldron presents in this book a simple, straightforward case for amillennialism. He does a good, thorough job of addressing the flaws of the extremely popular dispensational premillennialism ("Left Behind" theology). He avoids excessive use of technical jargon, and is easy to follow.Waldron here, contrary to what many people may think of amillennialists, is very emphatic about the Bible being God's inerrant, inspired Word. He uses a simple approach to interpreting the Scriptures' stand on the end times -- start with the clear, literal passages as a basis, then build upon them with the less clear, figurative passages. He provides several diagrams to make his views even easier to grasp.This title is an excellent alternative to the "Left Behind" theology so prominent today. I recommend it highly.
