"These Final Days, Part 1: The Truth About the Rapture, the Four Horsemen, and the Prelude to the Great Tribulation"
- by Ryan Speakman
Christian eschatology, or the study of the fate of humankind as revealed in the Bible, is a wide-ranging topic full of controversial opinions. Will the Rapture-the rising of Christians
to join Jesus in the air at His return-occur before, during, or after the seven-year Great Tribulation? Who are the so-called "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse," what do they symbolize, and
have they already ridden?
The first in a multi-part series, These Final Days, Part 1 undertakes a sober, scholarly, and exhaustive analysis of the Bible's teachings on the End Times and, in particular, \
the Rapture and how it will come to pass.
The Christian view of the End Times is a provocative subject that has certainly captured the world's attention in a bevy of books and movies. In joining this broad conversation, author
Ryan Speakman meticulously researches each issue to provide detailed answers that will surprise both Christians and non-Christians alike.
With chapters that give specific attention to the Book of Revelation as well as the Bible's numerous other references to the End Times and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ,
These Final Days is an essential addition to any biblical scholar's library.
