What the Bible Teaches about the Future

Overview

The Bible has an amazing record of being right about the future. In fact it has never been wrong.

Therefore when God, through his Word, tells us what is in store for our planet, the whole of humanity, and each of us as individuals, we should sit up and take notice because all the evidence tells us that this is what will happen and it affects us directly.

What does the future hold? This is a question that concerns many people in these days of uncertainty. Yet for others, to live for today, with no thought at all to the future, is all that matters. Surely the sensible approach is to investigate the answers and live in the light of them, rather than stick our head in the sand.

What does happen after we die? What will happen when Jesus comes to our planet again? Will this earth go on forever? How will God judge people? Who will be let into heaven? What is heaven like?

The biblical books are like navigation charts, marking out the points of progress along the way—the landmarks, the deeps, the safe channels, and the reefs where men get shipwrecked. We can know with certainty what to expect just over the horizon. This book will help you to do just that—to know with certainty where our eternal destiny lies and what it will be like when we get there. The Bible tells us all we need to know, and we know we can trust it.

The Logos Bible Software edition of this volume is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of numerous Christian topics. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and to the original language texts, and important apologetic concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about heaven, the trinity, and marriage.

Praise for the Print Edition

Among many books on unfulfilled prophecy this is one of the best and most stimulating that I have seen for a long time. It ought to be widely read (whether one agrees with every point or not), and covers the main issues in a popular style which has to be admired. All church book tables should have it.
