The Last Days According to Jesus by Dr. R.C. Sproul

The last days according to Jesus by Dr. R.C. Sproul is a book that I have read in the past. However I wanted to go over it again to give myself a fresh perspective on what Dr. Sproul has taught.

One thing that is definitely prevalent is that this teaching shays away from a popular teaching, set out by the Left Behind series, call the pre-tribulation rapture. Dr. Sproul teaches that most if not all of what has occurred in Revelation as well as some other texts was fulfilled in AD 70. This is known as preterism and it is a popular teaching particularly among some very reformed and also some very Calvinistic teachers.

While I disagree, because I’m a millennialist, this is a very good book in terms of making sure that the individual reader does not simply glance over the material presented because of predetermined biases but at least looks at, and hopefully learns something, with the information provided therein.
