Featured Review

This book is worth reading for the illustration on page 28 alone! A challenging and passionate book that should be read and applied by every Christian.

This is not another book on what view to hold about the reality of Jesus' return but it is about how to live in the light of his imminent return. D. A. Carson accurately determines that the Christian church has always lived in what the bible terms 'the last days'...the period between his ascension to his Father in heaven and his return on the clouds of heaven. To live in the last days is not to hang on in quiet desperation but to boldly take the word of God and apply it to every situation knowing that it will meet every need just as it has throughout the two millennia since Jesus promised to return again. That is how to live in the last days!

People who looked at this item also looked at:


"a very engaging, but brief, exposition of some very important verses about how we should live in what the Bible calls "the last days," i.e. the time before Jesus' return. Jesus is coming and we must be Bible-focused people who pass on the unadulterated message of God to those who come after us. This book is definitely worth the very short time it will take you to read."

Customer Reviews

Simply put, this book is an exposition of 2 Timothy 3:1-4:8. In this passage of Scripture, the apostle Paul is warning his young disciple Timothy of the onslaught of false teachers that would plague the church during the intermediate period between Christ's resurrection and second coming. He, in classical Pauline fashion, presents the problem and then fleshes out the practical implications towards a holistic ministry approach in the midst of such vile danger.

This little book is a great example of theology resulting in doxology... from exegesis, to expositional teaching, to practical application. We are given, in "From the Resurrection to His Return," biblical teaching on hermeneutics; discernment and apologetics; the doctrines of sufficiency, authority, and inspiration; suffering and sanctification; and evangelism and outreach... all in less than 50 pages! This little book packs a powerful punch of practical theology, wrought in the right division of the Word. I highly recommend it.
