Read and share/recommend to friends! Mar 15, 2006
Tsunamis. Earthquakes. Hurricanes. Terrorism. Is the end of the world near? Are we headed toward Armageddon? How can we live expectantly in a world of uncertainty?
These are questions answered by Greg Laurie in his book, Are These the Last Days? As the Senior Pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, and the evangelist who leads the Harvest Crusades attended by almost three million people since their inception, Greg Laurie is knowledgeable enough to write on this topic.
This is not a book attempting to scare people into believing in Jesus Christ, but one that points out with compassion and clarity why each of us should consider our need for a Savior. Are These the Last Days speaks to the Christian and non-Christian alike, showing each what to expect in the coming times, and what they need to do to be ready.
Pastor Laurie's writing brought to mind the Lord's admonition to the prophet, Habbakuk, to, "...write the vision and make it plain..." (Hab. 2:2) Greg Laurie's easy, almost-conversational style, contains a vision of what is to come, backed up with scripture and illustrated with stories that anyone can relate to.
Armchair Interviews says: This is a book that you will want to read and share with your friends, Christian and non-Christian.

BOOKS CONTRADICTS JESUS' PROPHECY OF "AT THE LAST DAY." Feb 13, 2006
This book fails to address the words of Jesus Christ concerning "the last day" in John 6:39-40; John 12:48 and John 5:28-29 which are the basis for the historical view on this subject.
We are to interpret the unclear verses of the Bible by the clear ones. This author uses the unclear verses to fuel his speculations. He needs to listen to Jesus Christ.
Jesus says: "Everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life and I will raise him up at the last day." (John 6:40).
"At the last day" - not 7 or 1007 years before the last day as this author believes.
Jesus says: "There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words. That very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day." (John 12:48)
This author needs to accept the very words of Jesus Christ when He says "at the last day."
Jesus says: "The hour is coming when all who are in the graves will hear my voice and come out. Those who have done good will rise to live and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned." (John 5:28-29)
This author changes the words of Jesus and tries to insert 1000 or 1007 years between Jesus' call and ignores the word "all". (See also John 11:24)
See 2 Peter 3:10-13 for a description of the last day. The rest of the Bible agrees with Jesus Christ not Greg Laurie.
