Overview

What does the future hold? The world is lacking in any real hope. Our culture is characterised by blind people hurtling headlong into hedonism - making sure that all the right boxes of experience are ticked before we die. What can the church offer? This is a book for Bible teachers and readers about what are often regarded as controversial and difficult areas of Scripture; it sets out to enable us to teach with clarity and purpose what will happen in the 'End Times'.There are six major themes connected with the Christian hope in the future. Each chapter uses one or two key passages that explain one of the major themes of eschatology and then covers the main elements that need to be answered within that theme.The hallmark of this series of books is that each one teaches the truth of God's Scriptures and also offers real help for those involved in teaching the material to others. Each chapter is clearly divided into 'teachable' sections with headings and sub-headings. These aid the reader to recognise the teaching flow of the doctrinal elements under discussion.Do you want to know the future? Here's how it can be faced with hope.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The task of moving from the text of Scripture to clear and faithful exposition is challenging. This series of excellent guides aims to help the Bible teacher to observe what is there in the text, and prepare to convey its significance to contemporary hearers. In this way these volumes often do more than the weightier technical commentaries. It is like having the guidance of an experienced coach in the wonderful work of rightly handling the word of truth. ~ John Woodhouse (Retired Principal and Lecturer in Doctrine and Old Testament, Moore College, Sydney, Australia)

North India desperately needs men and women who will preach and teach the Bible faithfully and PT's Teaching series is of great value in encouraging them to do just that. ~ Isaac Shaw (Executive Director, Delhi Bible Institute)

The need of the hour is Bible knowledge. When knowledge fails, faith fails, and we are shaped instead by cultural forces alien to God. This teaching series, written by skilled and trustworthy students of God's word, helps us to understand the Bible, believe it and obey it. I commend it to all Bible readers, but especially those whose task it is to teach the inspired word of God. ~ Peter Jensen (Retired Archbishop of Sydney, Sydney, Australia)

The Teaching series is a great resource for Bible study leaders and pastors, indeed for any Christian who wants to understand their Bible better. ~ Mark Dever (Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church and President, 9Marks.org, Washington, DC)
