"What can we know about eschatology from Scripture, especially the Old Testament? Walter Kaiser's Preaching and Teaching the Last Things shows us that we can know quite a lot. This is a helpful work for those who wonder how to preach or teach about the end with balance and clarity."
--Darrell L. Bock, past president of the Evangelical Theological Society; Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

"Walt Kaiser has offered a powerful and practical model for preaching and teaching the prophetic plan of God. His straightforward interpretation of the future provides strong support for a future, literal, earthly reign of the Messiah over the world from Jerusalem. Through the exposition of key prophetic texts, Kaiser shows the premillennial position to be both an Old and New Testament expectation."
--Mark L. Bailey, president, Dallas Theological Seminary
