Reviews - What do customers think about The Complete Book of Bible Prophecy?
Very well done. Jan 9, 2007
The book is easy to read - not too advanced. It is well-supported with Scripture and points out the importance of understanding prophecy.
A pretty amazing book!!!!!!! Oct 27, 2005
The complete Book Of bible Prophecy is a pretty amazing book. For one its only slightly over 200 pages long and yet its filled with information about bible prophecy. Its very coherent and its easy to read; its very scholarly and Lays out Bible prophecy very clearly for the end times. The Book is laid out in outline form which makes it easy to follow and also makes it a good reference for farther more indept study. Hitchhcock explains the different views on Millennialism and on the rapture; He shows us when a prophet is a prophet; He gives us ten key reason why prophecy is important; And six things knowing prophecy can do for us; He lists ten key events in Bible Prophecy; And ten key places; He gives us mini commentaries on the three key Prophetic passages in the Bible- Daniel; Jesus' Prophetic discourse in Matthew 24; and The Book Of the revelation of Jesus Christ; And Hitchcock answer's fifty key questions on Bible prophecy, to close the book. This is a must read and reference for any and everyone interested in Bible prophecy. And I would also recommend this as a gift for everyone, if could be a good witnessing tool as people can follow the prophecies, as they unfold in front of our own eyes.
Very well written... May 31, 2002
Mark did a GR8 job thowing so much, 'End-times' info in a single user-friendly little book. Note, this book is for peaple who all-ready understand a little bit about The book of Revelation. I would not recomend this for the very new-believer. Mark is truly a blessed man whose written some other blessed books as well.
Excellent overview of pre-mill/pre-trib/dispensationalism May 6, 2002
Mark Hitchcock has compiled an excellent primer on end-times prophecy as it relates to the pre-millenialist/pre-tribulation rapture camp. This is essentially a well organized compilation of a popular church perspective on end-times events advocated by many, including the popular Hal Lindsey (Late Great Planet Earth) and Tim Lahaye (Left Behind series). On the back cover, the author's information has him pursuing a doctoral degree from Dallas Theological Seminary so it stands to reason that this book is dispensational. Most of the scripture references are from the New Living Translation, a bit odd but then again the publisher of the book is Tyndale, which publishes the NLT as well.
The book is a very clear and well organized and will teach you prophecy from their viewpoint. While the book claims to be 'complete' it really only gives you very, very short explanations of the other viewpoints. Nonetheless, there is a wealth of information included on other subjects that most other books on prophecy omit. I especially appreciate that fact that the author treats other viewpoints of prophecy graciously and doesn't ridicule them. There are many excellent charts, outlines, and lists included in the book that makes this an excellent reference source. There is a question and answer section at the end of the book that is particularly useful. The typesetting and layout are modern and very well done.
I was hoping that this book would deal with 2 Thess. 2:1-4 and the timing of the rapture but the author has avoided it as many in the pre-trib camp do. While these verses and the chapter in general are referenced about eight times throughout the book, it is always in reference to other events described within (restrainer, power & signs, antichrist seated in temple, day of the Lord, etc). There is no integration of this set of verses as they concern timing with the pre-trib doctrine, probably since this is a problem verse that just doesn't work with pre-trib doctrine. For an excellent treatment on this subject for comparitive study get Robert Van Kampen's book "The Rapture Question Answered." Van Kampen's book is an argument against pre-trib so be prepared for a more confrontational tone; but it is a must read if you want to be exposed to other equally valid viewpoints on the rapture.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject but make sure your studies are balanced with books on other viewpoints (preterist, pre-wrath, amillenialism) and make up your own mind about what the scriptures really do say. Too often, authors of books include information that make their case but leave out facts that will weaken (sometimes considerably) their position. By studying as many viewpoints as possible, you'll get a larger set of facts in which to base your opinion on. Just because it's in print doesn't mean it's correct. There are many learned and Godly people with differing viewpoints so don't hang your hopes on just one set of theories, no matter how persuasive or popular they might be.
Excellent Book!!!! :o) Feb 26, 2001
I found this book to be VERY informative, and was done in such a manner that it is very organized. The layout makes it possible to use it as a review book, and look up almost anything you are seeking in regard to end times prophecy. In addition, it makes an excellent resource for doing your own bible study on Revelation. There is so much scripture quoted, just keep your bible alongside as you read, and when you get to noted scripture, look it up and nearly everything is made clear. This is definitely a book for christians that believe that the bible is God's literal word. Recommended highly.
