Overview

With the growing interest in the Antichrist these days, curiosity runs high for both Christians and unbelievers--with good reason. In books, movies, and even everyday conversation, so many different ideas about who he is, what he will do, and the timing of his arrival abound that it's difficult to separate biblical fact from human speculation.

Bestselling Bible prophecy expert Mark Hitchcock looks to the one source readers can trust--the Bible--and answers questions such as...

  • Where will the Antichrist come from?
  • When will he appear on earth's stage?
  • What is the significance of the number 666?
  • How will he rise to power, and what will finally happen to him?
  • Will we know who he is before the rapture happens?

Using a friendly question-and-answer format, Mark takes readers on a fascinating tour of all the Bible's key passages about the Antichrist--and shares how this information applies to their lives today.

    Reviewed by Joy H. for Readers Favorite


    The author writes this book because there is so much interest and curiosity today about the Antichrist:
    * Is it possible to identify the Antichrist before he rises to power?
    * What are the signs of his arrival?
    * What is the significance of the number 666?
    * Will God allow the Antichrist to do as he pleases?
    * Is the Antichrist alive on earth today?

    As you read this book, you will find answers to these questions and many more from prophecy expert Mark Hitchcock, and what he believes the Bible teaches us about the Antichrist. The author writes this book using the question-answers format to answer our questions. The book is well-written and written after much research and study, giving readers almost anything they want to know about Antichrist who will appear on earth. Even though I know a lot of what the author is talking about, I enjoyed reading it again, and reading the things I hadn’t thought about or heard before. I feel it is important to realize that this book is not just one man’s opinion. In the Notes section in the back of the book you will find many, many references to books of other great godly men that Mr. Hitchcock used in his research. But the most important thing is that this book is packed full of scriptures from God’s Word that back up what the author is saying here.

    I encourage you to read and study this book and see for yourself what it is about. I think you will be like me and be amazed at what the Bible says about Antichrist.
