    1. Every November as the world world comes to the end as beginning of another year, Christians look forward to the yearly celebration of the Coming of the Lord as the Babe of Bethlehem while also looking forward to the and the Second Coming of Christ in Glory and the World To Come in the Season of Advent Traditionally also, this is a time for the preaching of the Four Last Things Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell as it relates to the individual And a rich source of material for such preaching is to [...]

    3. Great perspective of the Catholic belief about the rapture, tribulation, and second coming Very good at comparing the differences between general pretribulation millenialism beliefs and what the Catholic church teaches about the end times I skimmed some of the critique of the Left Behind Series, because I m not really interested in them anyway But the description of the magisterium s teachings all in one place in plain English were very helpful to me Highly recommended if you are deliving into C [...]

    4. I read this YEARS ago, but apparently forgot to post it hered since the world DID NOT end yesterday or whatever was supposed to happen , I thought it was an appropriate add Olson gives a history of Rapture prophecies throughout the centuries, and then discusses how these are not at all Biblically based A great read.

    5. Excellent book for Catholics and Protestants alike Protestants will appreciate knowing the Catholic interpretation of Revelation Catholics will appreciate knowing how Revelation fits in with the liturgy and receive a much fuller view of Revelation that Protestant s often narrow focus on the end times.
