Bible Prophecy Explains Current Events Jan 16, 2008
Writing in a popular style that avoids the vocabulary of seminary theologians, Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins target the masses with their analysis of current events as seen by their pretribulational, premillennial, and dispensational interpretation of Bible prophecy. The book is formatted on a timeline of sequential prophetic events and makes use of numerous charts and graphs.
LaHaye and Jenkins cover almost every conceivable topic and detail of predicted end-times, but make only an oblique reference to God's covenants with Abraham and his progeny: a description of the regathering of Israel, backed up by Ezekiel's "dry bones" prophecy. They make no mention of events surrounding Israel's birth as a nation. This omission of the early details of God's plan of the ages is admitted by the book's authors: "The book you hold in your hand is primarily about God's wonderful plan for man's future events in relation to this earth prior to that age of peace."
Even so, this book provides a very readable study of Bible prophecy, a study focused maninly on end-time events yet to be fulfilled.

Irrelevant Dec 15, 2007
I feel like this book could really be summed up with one word: maybe. Definitively, that's all I really got out of the book. Although the book is presented in a less insane light than some religious works, it still stands to reason that people have been proclaiming or guessing about the end times for about 2000 years. Devout Christians seem to be ignoring their Bible when it says that the exact year of Christ's return cannot be known. Why even bother speculating?
Excellent book on prophecy! Oct 31, 2007
This book details why those of us who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior have more reason to believe that Christ's return could come in this generation than has existed in any previous generation.
Pre-trib propaganda Apr 9, 2007
Just more pre-trib propaganda. There is not a single verse in the Bible that says the Rapture will be after the Tribulation. In fact Jesus told us the very opposite (read Matthew 24:29-31 very carefully). Revelation 20:4,5 tells us that the saints martyred in the Tribulation will be in the First Resurrection. The First Resurrection is the RAPTURE! The Rapture is obviously after the Tribulation! It's time to wake up and accept the truth. Place your trust in Jesus Christ not in fictional escapism.
Ok, but get it at a library... 3 out of 5 Mar 18, 2007
It's been awhile since reading this book, but after refreshing the book I have decided that LaHaye and Jenkins have produced a so-so book. The book is interesting and points out evidence that leads readers to think that the end times are extremely close, which I won't argue, we could be closer to the end, but people have thought they were living in the end times for hundreds of years. This book is heavily centered on pre-tribulation ideas, which I don't see a need to focus on since there is no strong biblical evidence to pin point this idea and there is really no need to even know since we have no control over the matter.
Part of the reason I gave this book such a low rating is that I find some of the scripture references that Lahaye uses to discuss puzzling. For example, Page 57 talks about two sets of "These Things" in Matthew 24:33-34. How does the same verse have two different meanings?
The book does a good job discussing the "birth pains" of the end times. Just because we see one or two events that are prophecy doesn't mean the world is coming to an end just yet, it means we are close but just like a woman in labor, the "pains" will be more dramatic and closer together when the end is getting extremely close.
