4.0 out of 5 stars These Last Days 3 April 2012
By parkerj - Published on Amazon.com
These Last Days is a book edited by Richard Phillips with contributions from: Sinclair Ferguson, DA Carson, Alistair Begg, Michael Horton, J. Ligon Duncan III, Cornelis Venema, Jeffery Jue, and Paul David Tripp. This book truly shines with great insight and writings by these wise pastors/theologians. These Last Days is written obviously to discuss the last days and how a Christian ought to live in response to the truths of Scripture about our present time. Each chapter can be read independently from the others which allows for pause for thought and meditation.

I found chapter 7 to be my favorite. I have never read anything by Venema, but I really enjoyed his writing style concerning the four main millennial views. All of the authors are Amillennial I believe, so the books is certainly from this perspective. This is refreshing because with so much out from a dispensational premillennial point of view it is nice to have alternatives. :-)

The biggest truth that one can gain from this book is "how then shall we live" since we know these truths. Truths concerning our present evil age, our resurrection hope, and our eternal glory should bring praise to our God for redeeming us and also change how we presently live. The final chapter by Tripp does a good job of examining these implications.
This is a good book to encourage believers concerning "These Last Days"

4.0 out of 5 stars More devotional than theological or informational 9 July 2011
By Paul R. Bruggink - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a very readable devotional book about living in the "last days" (the present age). This is not surprising since six of the ten chapters were written by pastors or pastor/theologians. If you are looking for information about Christian views of the end times, this book has only one 17-page chapter that gives a brief though well-written summary of the four main end times scenarios and a 19-page chapter in the history of dispensational premillennialism in the USA. The authors generally support an amillennial view of eschatology.

I was very surprised to see a totally unexpected and gratuitous swipe at theistic evolution by Rev. Richard Phillips in Chapter 8 (p. 128), saying that "one of reasons why we [evangelicals] should reject this teaching is that theistic evolution is a process in which the creative engine is death. " This personal opinion added nothing to the subject matter of the chapter, which was "A Pastoral Guide to Life after Death."

The book does not contain author biographies, an index, or a bibliography, and has very few footnotes.

I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a devotional view of the "end times."

This book has several different authors that have written about their views and interpretation of Scripture as it relates to end times. I found that I could not easily put this book down once I started it. A great book with great insight!
5.0 out of 5 stars A much needed view of history 23 May 2012

These Last Days

Edited by Richard D. Phillips& Gabriel N E Fluhrer

This is a book about an evil age. Specifically, it is about "the present evil age" that we live in right now. For many Christians, the expression "these last days" refers to the time right before the second coming of Christ-but according to the apostles, the last days started with the first coming of Christ and continue even today. How do we biblically understand our time as the final age of world history? What does this mean for our faith? Reformed Christians have often avoided the field of eschatology-but it was this doctrine of history that thrilled the first disciples. They realized that with the coming of the "last days" they had entered the time of the kingdom, and this understanding will strengthen our faith too. Here the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology addresses this important topic and presents the following speakers' insights on: Sinclair Ferguson The Christ of History D. A. Carson This Present Evil Age Alistair Begg The Age of the Spirit Michael S. Horton The Resurrection Hope J. Ligon Duncan III The Eternal Glory D. A. Carson Partakers of the Age to Come Cornelis P. Venema The Four Main Millennial Views Richard D. Phillips A Pastoral Guide to Life After Death Jeffrey K. Jue Evangelical Eschatology, American Style Paul David Tripp The Radical Implications of Eternity Together some of the most gifted communicators of God's Word explain the Christian's view on life, death, and the hereafter.

This is a book about the times we live in and the end of these days. It was great to see many men who believe so much in the Lord. I enjoy growing in my understanding of the times we live in. I long for the end of the race on many days. The history of this world and the insight that these men have is helpful to pull more out of my Bible. I always hold the Books up to the Bible. It is realistic that I do not agree with everyone one's views but for the most part they seem to align with the Bible's view point. It is hard some days to hear the current trends on this world from inside the Church. I am thankful for men who hold onto the historical perspective that this world is a dying place.

I would like to thank Net Galley and P & R Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Readable and informative 25 Sep 2011
By Kathleen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was extremely helpful in understanding end times from a Reformed/Reformational perspective. Each chapter is by a different author and takes on a aspect of living in and understanding "these last days." The chapter titled "The Radical Implications of Eternity" is especially helpful for those who desire to live in the light of eternity. The four main millennial views are presented in a fair and balanced manner although the authors agree on one millennial view. I read this book through twice and then loaned it to my son. It is a must-have for my library.
