Unlocking the Last Days: A Guide to the Book of Revelation and the End Times

If you want to buy the paperback version of this book it can also be purchased from your local Christian Bookshop
Many books have been published which talk about the End Times and whether we are at that period in history where we could be entering the End Times. I would like to start this blog by saying that my view on this is that only God knows the time and the day and I am sure we will know when this happens. Saying that, I am interested in the book of Revelation and this book by Jeff Lassiegne looked like it would provide a clear overview.
I have previously read some books on this subject and one thing they have in common is that they are often confusing. Lasseigne has managed to avoid this and his book is very clearly written. He goes through each chapter and gives a sound well reasoned argument for what they mean. He uses Biblical references from both the Book of Revelation and many other books of the Bible.
I am sure you are aware that there are three interpretations of the End Times - Pre Millenial, Millenial, and Post Millenial. Lasseigne takes the Pre-Millenial postion and sets out a very clear argument for why this stance is the most likely. He very briefly covers the other two positions as part of his argument.
Some books which look at Revelation and the End Times can also be quite dry. This book certainly manages to avoid that failing. Each chapter starts with a joke. These are both relevant and really funny. They also serve to set the chapter into context and to give Lasseigne a springboard on which to launch his discussion. However, don't be fooled into thinking this is a light book which doesn't address the real issues. Far from being that, it is an in depth overview into which the author has poured a great deal of research and study.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in this topic. It is not one which you will read quickly but you will certainly learn a lot in the process.
Tune in next week to see what the next book in my very eclectic book reviews will be. Until then keep reading.
