Things to Come: A Study in Biblical Eschatology [NOOK Book]

Overview

Because of the prominence of prophecy in Scripture, many excellent books have appeared dealing with prophetic subjects. Until recently, however, the treatment of prophecy has been either apologetic or expository, and prophetic themes have been developed individually apart from their relation to the whole revealed prophetic program. Much of our knowledge has been only fragmentary and unrelated. Dr. Dwight Pentecost’s monumental text, Things to Come, has changed all that. In this massive, highly successful book, ...

Overview

Because of the prominence of prophecy in Scripture, many excellent books have appeared dealing with prophetic subjects. Until recently, however, the treatment of prophecy has been either apologetic or expository, and prophetic themes have been developed individually apart from their relation to the whole revealed prophetic program. Much of our knowledge has been only fragmentary and unrelated. Dr. Dwight Pentecost’s monumental text, Things to Come, has changed all that. In this massive, highly successful book, Dr. Pentecost has synthesized the whole field of prophecy into a unified biblical doctrine, a systematic and complete biblical eschatology. With nearly a quarter of a million copies sold, Things to Come has earned its place in the library of the pastor, the scholar, and the seminarian or Bible institute student. In addition, it offers a comprehensive and accessible study for anyone interested in the important subject of biblical prophecy.

    Priceless foundation for students of Biblical prophecy.

    This is a priceless foundation for anyone interested in, or embarking upon a study of Biblical prophecy. This book has correctly been described as being of encylopaedic proportions. Indeed, comprising of over 600 pages, it is as comprehensive a study in Biblical prophecy as there is currently available. I was first drawn to the works of Dwight Pentecost through his excellent book entitled 'Your Adversary The Devil'. The manner of his approach to the latter subject and the provision of such a well written and in-depth discussion really impressed me. Having studied Biblical prophecy for many years, I was thrilled to discover that Pentecost had also written a comprehensive study on Bible prophecy as well. Having now acquired this work, I have not been disappointed. The list and depth of the many aspects of prophecy studied is exemplary. Pentecost approaches Biblical prophecy and the `End Times' from the perspective of a `Pre-Tribulation' Rapture of the Church. He eloquently presents his own interpretation of what many see as perhaps the controversial subject of the timing of the Rapture itself. I have read a number of books where individual authors disagree about the latter aspect of prophecy. Taking everything into consideration, I personally feel that this `controversial' issue should be approached and discussed prayerfully and in love, not allowing the matter to prove divisive and thus giving ground to the Adversary. With the latter in mind, may I respectfully suggest that students of Biblical prophecy also make reference to another excellent, encyclopaedic study, (itself exceeding 500 pages) by Robert Van Kampen, entitled 'The Sign'. Van Kampen's study is also a thorough, in-depth study, yet approaches the Rapture with a slightly different interpretation which places it within the Tribulation itself. Anyone basing their studies on these two books will find an absolute wealth of information at their fingertips to assist them with their research. In closing perhaps I could also suggest another extremely useful aid to study, in the book by John F. Walvoord entitled 'Every Prophecy Of The Bible'. Thank you.

    As far as I am concerned, this is a classic in the field of biblical prophecy. Every serious student of the Bible should have this book in his/her library. I have been teaching the Bible since 1964, and have found Things To Come by J.D. Pentecost to be a valuable tool in understanding the various books of the Bible.
