Item description for The Final Drama: 14 Keys to Understanding the Prophetic Scriptures by John F. Walvoord...
Overview *How can I sift through the confusing viewpoints and discover the truth about future events? *What key things should I know about events such as the rapture, the millennium, and the final judgment? *What does the Bible predict about the future of the world, the nation of Israel, and the Church? As the world anxiously moves toward a new century and a new millennium, one of America's leading experts in the field of biblical prophecy, John F. Walvoord, offers a practical guide to fourteen key issues in biblical prophecy. He answers questions such as those above as well as many others. As Walvoord observes in the introduction, "About one-fourth of the Bible is predictive prophecy. About half of these prophecies have already been fulfilled....Therefore, a study of the prophecy concerning events of the past will give many guidelines for understanding the fulfillment of the prophecy of events in the future." By succinctly outlining the major issues in prophetic studies, this work serves as a basic reference tool for Christian readers to use in exploring the greater depths of biblical prophecy.
Publishers Description Well-known scholar and author, John F. Walvoord offers a detailed and fascinating explanation of how specific events in the late 1980s and early 1990s relate to biblical prophecy. A great foundational book for understanding end-times passages and the future of the church, Israel, Satan, and the world.

A Relatively Short but Excellent Eschatological Read Mar 8, 2010
Walvoord describes his own purpose thus:
"This work attempts to state succinctly the major elements that relate to the prophetic future. The outline of future events provided here forms a fitting platform on which to explore in-depth the Bible's detailed prophecies...This work is offered in the hope of providing a clearer picture of the future for those who were confused by previous studies."
Walvoord meets his purpose well. In the subsequent 14 chapters, he covers everything from "interpreting correctly" (p.6); Jesus Christ (p.21); the covenants (p.33); Gentiles (p.51); Satan and his angels (p.62); Israel (p.70); the Church (p.88); the intermediate state (p.104); the Rapture (p.109); The Great Tribulation (p.118); The Second Coming (p.132); The Millennium (p.139); the Resurrections and the Final Judgment (p.156); and ending with the Eternal State (p.167)
A three page subject index and five page Scripture index conclude the book.
A good overview for those wanting an introduction to the topic: seminarians, bible college students and laypeople will all benefit from this book.
