Jonathan Menn discusses how to interpret prophecy and apocalyptic literature, shows the history of eschatological thought, and places eschatology in the context of the Bible’s overall structure. Clarity and understanding are enhanced by the use of comparative tables and appendices. Subject and Scripture indexes are included. The book interacts with the best of Evangelical and Reformed scholarship, and the extensive bibliography provides an excellent source for further study. This is a perfect resource for intelligent Christians, including pastors, students, and teachers, who desire to understand eschatology and to see how it fits together with the rest of the Bible.

I want to commend Jonathan Menn’s Biblical Eschatology heartily. This book performs a great service for the church, precisely because it is comprehensive in its treatment of all the major eschatological passages in Scripture, detailed and clear in its analysis, fair in its assessments, and passionate in its convictions. Menn identifies the importance of eschatology through its connections with the overall story line of the Bible. He helps us with important principles and guidelines for interpreting eschatological texts. And his passion for the truth of Scripture and its practical impact in the life and ministry of the church is inspiring.

Menn provides extensive data on the strengths and weaknesses of virtually every eschatological system.
