The end of the world as we know it

Sometimes the daily news appears to confirm that forecast. Thousands of TV shows, websites, and blogs are dedicated to mapping out the end of the world. The signs of the times hailing Christ's return seem to be all around.

Or so it appears.

But, is it really the end of the world? Christians through the ages have held to a variety of understandings of the millennium—the belief that a thousand -year period of utopia will one day come. In What Does the Future Hold? prophecy expert and biblical scholar C. Marvin Pate highlights the three major views of when Christ will return—premillennialism, postmillennialism, and amillennialism—as well as a fourth skeptical interpretation, expertly analyzing them all. This timely treatment provides an accessible, reader-friendly overview of the ongoing debate over end-time viewpoints.

C. Marvin Pate is chair of Christian theology and Elma Cobb Professor of Christian Theology at Ouachita Baptist University. He is the author, coauthor, or editor of more than fifteen books, including Doomsday Delusions, Reading Revelation, Dictionary of Biblical Prophecy and End Times, and The End of the Age Has Come.
