Dogmatic predictions based on bizarre calculations from the Bible, and equally zealous disciples aggressively promoting their view point as the only right interpretation of Scripture, have caused many believers to lose interest in this wonderful aspect of biblical truth. In A New Look at the Last Things the reader will find a careful overview of various topics relating to the Last Things. Different interpretations are discussed and the merits of each is evaluated, enabling the reader to come to a fuller understanding of what the apostles taught concerning these matters. Endorsements: John Gore rightly calls the Western church to refocus on eschatology. He has thought long and hard on doctrines such as the millennium, heaven, hell, and the nature of our resurrection body. The author is graciously provocative at times, yet always biblical, mixing his reflections with insights from Church history. Gore fairly and precisely sets out what are the different views on controversial issues, and then helpfully pleads his own case. You may not agree with all his conclusions, but you will cover a wide range of essential topics that have both practical and ministry outworkings. Gore has given us a popular theological text that is distinctive and most helpful for the equipping of the saints. -Ross Clifford Principal Morling Theological College, Sydney About the Contributor(s): John E Gore is the Founder and President of Leadership Development Ministries Inc., training pastors in Central and East Africa and other developing countries.
