The Prophecy Answer Book Review

 

The Prophecy Answer Book is a 194 page book that attempts to answer various questions the average person may have concerning Biblical prophecy in a simple question and answer format.  Most of the questions are concerning the "end times" with questions such as "When will Israel be invaded?" and "What is the difference between the Rapture and the Second Coming?".

This book attempts to cover a LOT of ground in just a little space and time.  If you are looking for some in depth answers, this isn't the book for you.  However, if you are just starting to delve into a study on Biblical prophecy, or are curious about what the Bible says about it, this would be a good starting point.

The questions are answered in 1/2 to 1 pocket sized page for the most part.  Only a few answers take more than that.  Because of that I felt like I was left hanging.  However most answers include scripture references that could begin a deeper understanding of what is going on.  Some questions, such as "Does oil hold a key to the prophetic events of the future?" are strictly an opinion answer.  Jeremiah even ponders "What do oil and the Garden of Eden have in common?"  (A really interesting and thought provoking answer here that I had not really considered before but makes sense.)

Do I recommend this book?  Depends on what you are looking for.  A starting place for end times study?  Then yes.  An understanding of end times prophesy in one book?  No.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com <http://booksneeze.com/> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_03/16cfr255_03.html> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
