What You Need To Know About Bible Prophecy by Max Anders

What You Need to Know About Bible Prophecy
       At last an easy to understand and follow explanation of one of the  basic doctrines of the Christian belief system.. eschatology. And not just eschatology but the subgroup of prophecy. It is laid out in twelve chapters  which can be used as discussion aids in a small group setting.
            Anders carefully presents the viewpoints that are around when it comes to the understanding of the subject of prophecy. He points out that none of the viewpoints keeps a person from heaven. They just act as grids to the understanding of what God says.
            My reaction is that Anders  walks the line between divergent views  on the meaning of prophecy in a way that allows the discussion to continue without major fist fights over small points. As he points out whether we hold to literal or symbolic  interpretation we can all agree that Jesus is coming back someday. Anyone reading this book and thinking about it will be challenged in his application of the truths. He will also be a little more understanding of those who differ in the minor points of prophecy.
            I feel the information was present in a nonjudgmental manner. I recommend it for small study groups who enjoy discussion.
        This book was given to me free by the publisher through the book review blogger program. I was not required to write a positive review. The viewpoints held are my own and not those of the publisher.
