More than 50 scholars combine their expertise to present a historical and topical dictionary of premillennial theology.
This is a very well presented 1888 copy of the Great Controversy. This has been styled and formatted to be easy to read and not on newsprint paper. Ellen Gould White was a prolific author and an American Christian pioneer. She, along with other Sabbatarian Adventist leaders, formed what is now known as the Seventh-day Adventist Church. White was considered a somewhat controversial fi gure. Her reports of visionary experiences and use of other sources in her writings comprise much of the controversy. Her writings covered creationism, agriculture, theology, evangelism, Christian lifestyle, education and health. During her lifetime she wrote more than 5,000 periodical articles and 40 books. Some of her most famous books include The Desire of Ages, The Great Controversy and Steps to Christ. This work, originally published in 1888, on the great contraversy between Jesus and Satan, The Great Controversy, has also been published under the title The Triumph of God's Love.
The Presence of the Future
Author: George Eldon Ladd
Publisher: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing
George Eldon Ladd's comprehensive treatment of New Testament eschatology has become the definitive discussion of the theological interpretation known as "inaugurated eschatology." Reflecting profound biblical insight and a balanced treatment of conflicting views, this volume convincingly develops Ladd's thesis that the kingdom of God involves two great movements -- its present fulfillment in Jesus and its future consummation in the last days. Ladd begins this revised edition (formerly titled Jesus and the Kingdom) by taking readers step by step through the findings of his predecessors and contemporaries on the great debate as to whether the kingdom of God promised by Jesus is now, in the immediate future, or in some unknown time to come. He then traces the prophetic expectation of the kingdom in the Old Testament, pursues the development of this expectation through the intertestamental literature, and, against this background, reconstructs the teaching and mission of Jesus. Ultimately, Ladd finds the key to understanding the kingdom in the concept of "the rule of God." His interpretation of the divine reign brings together the Old Testament promise of the kingdom, its fulfillment in history, and its consummation at the end of history. - Back cover.
In this revised and updated edition of Raptureless, Jonathan Welton has taken a bold step in confronting one of the greatest "sacred cows” of our day: end time theology! Added to this edition is the supplemental book called The Art of Revelation, where the author uses the same thought-provoking, well-studied, forthright, and optimistic arguments as before as he examines thoroughly the book of Revelation. He once again shows his scholarship and ability to communicate on issues pertinent to the issues facing today’s Church. The fear created by the expectation of a coming antichrist and a great tribulation are keeping many believers in bondage. Many believe that defeat is the future destiny of the Church. As Jesus said, men’s traditions make void the Word of God. In his easy to read presentation, Jonathan dismantles many of the popular ideas in the Church about the end times. His arguments are Scriptural, lucid, simply and powerfully presented. In addition, Jonathan provides fresh historical background for a number of the historical sources that he has quoted. Read it and be challenged. With this much evidence, the reader must make a decision. Chapter titles include: RAPTURELESS: How Did We Get Here? The Rapture The Great Tribulation The End of the World Melting Elements The Antichrist The Persecution Mindset The Israel of God The Kingdom Transition The Kingdom Without Wrath The New Covenant of Light The Kingdom Now The Kingdom Advancing The Big Three The Apostolic Mission THE ART OF REVELATION: The Introduction The Seven Churches The Seven Seals The Seven Trumpets Followers of the Lamb or the Beast The Seven Bowls of Wrath The Babylonian Harlot The New Heavens and New Earth The Epilogue

Author: Arthur W Pink
Publisher: Lulu Press, Inc
Arthur W. Pink has become known as a masterful expositor of the Word of God. Both his expository works and some of his doctrinal works have long been in print. His deep concern for experimental Christianity and the practical Christian life, however, is not so well known. Yet he wrote many short series and single articles on what Scripture has to say about the inner man. And in writing these articles Pink expounded the Scriptures as penetratingly as he did in his expository and doctrinal writings. His practical Christianity, then, is not a collection of pious thoughts on the Christian life or a simple outline of Scripture, but a full treatment of the subject.
