The Mayans- Martin Luther- modern doomsday preachers, there's a long list of people who predicted the end of the world and got it wrong. Does Jesus belong on that list? After all, in Matt:24:34 he seems to indicate the end will come within a "generation," yet
many generations have passed and the world is still around. Was he mistaken?
In What Jesus Really Said About the End of the World, author David Currie examines Christ's end-times prophecies, using the tools of biblical scholarship, the wisdom of the Church Fathers, and Old Testament history and typology, as he presents a fascinating, highly readable interpretation of Jesus' words that harmonizing with Catholic tradition and answering the charge that Christ predicted an end that never came. He rebuts both skeptics and many Evangelical Christians (who resort to extrabiblical theories like the "Rapture") while giving comfort to other Christians who have been confused or embarrassed by this seeming blow to Christ's credibility.
Currie also unlocks for you the most important message - not to inspire fearful calculations about the day and hour but to remind us that our own end will surely come, so we must be always ready.
