Product description

From Publishers Weekly

Eschatology is a hot subject. "Prophecy" is a regular feature in supermarket tabloids, and it recently made the cover of Time magazine. Interest in the subject fuels countless water cooler conversations, myriad "end-times" Web sites and the whole Left Behind publishing juggernaut. But in many quarters of the Christian community, that same intrigue over "what happens at the end of the story" is balanced by bewilderment, even embarrassment over what the Bible and its various interpreters say. For these Christians in particular (and less so for inerrantist end-time enthusiasts), this book is a welcome, comprehensive and accessible guide to exploring what the Bible says about the future. Hill, a professor of New Testament at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C., wants to show "that the idea of God's triumph is central to Christian faith and that a working knowledge of the concept is essential to an informed reading of the Bible, particularly the New Testament." He begins with a primer on biblical interpretation, then addresses prophecy throughout history, the biblical books of Daniel and Revelation, Jesus' expectations for the future and what those expectations were for the earliest Christians. The book closes with an appendix on the Rapture. It all reads like a good lecture, punctuated with summary lists, illustrative diagrams and funny asides (though some readers may find the latter off-putting). Like a well-prepared and practiced professor, Hill leads his readers through this difficult material with ease and expertise, sensitivity and a sense of humor.

From the Back Cover

Enormous confusion exists today concerning theBible's teaching about the future. Millions of contemporaryChristians are caught up in "rapture"fever, evidenced by the phenomenal success ofthe "Left Behind novels. At the opposite end ofthe spectrum are those, such as the leaders ofthe Jesus Seminar, who believe that Jesus did notteach about the approaching Kingdom of God.

"In God's Time offers an alternative to thesetwo poles in the debate, an alternative that is atonce faithful and sane, readable and scholarly.Author Craig C. Hill encourages Christians bothto take seriously and to think sensibly about thehope of God's ultimate victory. His new bookincludes chapters on the nature of the Bible, thehistory of prophecy, the meaning of apocalypticwritings, the interpretation of Daniel andRevelation, the expectations of Jesus, and thehopes of the early Christians. It also includes anappendix ("Not Left Behind") on the subject ofthe rapture.

Endorsed by a wide array of top scholarsand church leaders, "In God's Time is a reliableguide to this often bewildering but alwaysfascinating subject.
