Escape The Coming Night Jan 3, 2007
I got so much from this book that I ordered it for a 90 year old Christian friend. She tells me that it is the best book on prophecy that she has ever read and she keeps going back to it.
Nonacademic, Storytelling Approach to Explain Book of Revelation.... Aug 18, 2006
Dr. Jeremiah in this book, as in his Turning Point television broadcast, uses anecdoctes in explaining scriptural truth, in this case the book of Revelation. Even though Jeremiah is right on theologically, his story-telling style might be frustrating for readers who want to get straight to the verses, word study, context, and just a more academic approach to understanding Revelation. On the other hand, people who enjoy Bible-based fiction or those who just don't want to strain their brain with study, might appreciate being introduced to Revelation through this book. If you like this book, I'd recommend Jeremiah's HANDWRITING ON THE WALL, which is a similar style commentary on the Old Testament book of Daniel, and which would actually be helpful to read first, since some of Revelation is based on Daniel. For those wanting a more academic approach to Revelation, I recommend Ryrie's more academic REVELATION as accessible to the beginner, and still more detailed would be the commentaries of Walvoord, Robert Thomas, or even Newell. All of these, like Jeremiah, hold to the conservative, evangelical "pre-trib, pre-mil" endtimes view that the rapture will take place before ("pre") a 7-year tribulation before a literal millial (i.e., 1000 years) reign of Messiah on Earth.
"Right up there with 'Dragons, Grasshoppers, & Frogs' as best in class!" Dec 18, 2005
While not every word of the tape series in contained in the book, this book is nevertheless one of the best on Revelation. Until I read "Dragons, Grasshoppers, & Frogs", I thought this was the easiest commentary on the book. But "Dragons" is specifically written for teens and newbies, and is quite a bit more practical and better organized.
Jeremiah is premillennial and pretribulational. If you are not of that persuasion, you will be really disappointed--not to mention confused. I am, so I wasn't.
A Companion to the Book of Revelation Oct 8, 2005
A companion to the Book of Revelation, ESCAPE THE COMING NIGHT, takes much of the guess-work out of interpreting one of the most difficult books in the Bible. His easy-reading, yet didactic, writing style makes David Jeremiah one of today's most popular experts on prophecy. This book is anything but discouraging and full of doom; on the contrary, it is full of hope for those who understand its message. J. Lawyer
Too many errors May 31, 2003
I was enjoying Mr. Jeremiah's chapter on what the spirit said to the seven churches. Then I came upon this comment by the author: "Herodotus, the historian, records that over the course of many years the church in Sardis had acquired a reputation for lax moral standards." My enthusiasm dropped a bit with that. Herodotus wrote his history in 440 B>C. That was hundreds of years before the Christian era. The report on the Sardis church had to have come from some other historian. I tried to ignore this error and just enjoy the insights about Revelation. Then, Mr. Jeremiah tells us that the Emperor Constantine reigned in the third century. Well, no, he didn't. Constantine was emperor in the fourth century. Call this nitpicking if you will. After all I'm not a scholar or a writer. But I am a pretty fair reader, and it seems to me that an author needs to make sure of all his facts, lest his readers begin to wonder if he has command of even his main topic. I'll finish the book though. He is probably as much an authority on the book of Revelation as almost anyone else.
