Many people spend more time planning a trip to Europe than they do preparing for their eternal homes. We are bombarded with suggestions concerning what awaits us when we cross the line from life to death. Is it as Betty Eadie claims, an eternal existence of peaceful and loving acceptance? Or could it be as Shirley MacLaine insists, simply reincarnation — a transfer from one body to another? We need not play this guessing game, wondering what will greet us on the other side — the Bible tells us that we can know for sure. For some, it will be a beautiful existence of eternal bliss; for others, an everlasting experience of pain and torment. And there will ever be a great gulf fixed between the two.

Because of the prominence of prophecy in Scripture, many excellent books have appeared dealing with prophetic subjects. Until recently, however, the treatment of prophecy has been either apologetic or expository, and prophetic themes have been developed individually apart from their relation to the whole revealed prophetic program. Much of our knowledge has been only fragmentary and unrelated. Dr. Dwight Pentecost's monumental text, Things to Come, has changed all that. In this massive, highly successful book, Dr. Pentecost has synthesized the whole field of prophecy into a unified biblical doctrine, a systematic and complete biblical eschatology. With nearly a quarter of a million copies sold, Things to Come has earned ... more

Many Christians think of end times prophecy as a gigantic, intimidating puzzle--difficult to piece together and impossible to figure out. But every puzzle can be solved if you approach it the right way. Paul Benware compares prophecy to a picture puzzle. Putting the edge pieces together first builds the 'framework' that makes it easier to fit the other pieces in their place. According to Benware, the framework for eschatology is the biblical covenants. He begins his comprehensive survey by explaining the major covenants. Then he discusses several different interpretations of end times prophecy. Benware digs into the details of the Rapture, the Great Tribulation, the judgements and resurrections, and the millennial kingdo ... more

Do you believe heaven really exists? Choo Thomas retells a stunning, personal story of how she saw the living Christ, visited Hell, and walked in Heaven.

My body was shaking...I turned my head on the pillow to look in the direction of the sound, and there, all aglow, was a figure dressed in white garments. IT WAS THE LORD..."
How could this be happening to me? I wondered...as I began to tremble...and to weep tears of love and joy. "My daughter...I am your Lord, and I want to talk to you.

Of all the teachings of Christianity, the doctrine of hell is easily the most troubling, so much so that in recent years the church has been quietly tucking it away. Rarely mentioned anymore in the pulpit, it has faded through disuse among evangelicals and been attacked by liberal theologians. Hell is no longer only the target of those outside the church. Today, a disturbing number of professing Christians question it as well. Perhaps more than at any other time in history, hell is under fire. The implications of the historic view of hell make the popular alternatives, annihilationism and universalism, seem extremely appealing. But the bottom line is still God's Word. What does the Old Testament reveal about hell? What d ... more

When will he return? What sort of kingdom will he establish? What is the meaning of the millennium? These questions persist today.
