Dr. Boyd Gray, a minister with more than thirty years of experience, offers a comprehensive study from the premillennial view based on his opinion that the masses are either not ready for the return of Christ or have dismissed it as myth altogether. As Dr. Gray works his way through Scripture detailing the truths of John the Apostle and the predicted tribulations of the Antichrist, he demonstrates through his interpretations that God’s Word is the truth—a message he hopes will motivate sinners to heed the Lord’s gracious call to salvation.
Looking into the Revelation shares a careful examination of biblical text that seeks to encourage people of all faiths to reexamine their lives and their beliefs and to fall in love with the Lord Jesus Christ.
MacLeod explores the relationship between the seven churches mentioned and seven Church Ages that are almost completed in our day; he compares the seven Israeli feasts with the unfolding plot of man's salvation through the seals, trumpets, thunders and bowls, comparing Old Testament prophecies with John's and Paul's writings. There is no doubt that this book will challenge what you think you know about the Revelation.
