A Resource Everyone Should Use!

A review of The Prophecy Pros’ Illustrated Guide to Tough Questions About the End Times by Jeff Kinley and Todd Hampson.

(These two gentlemen are also hosts of the Prophecy Pros Podcast!)

God orchestrated this timing, because, after making a post about why studying Bible prophecy is important, I’m reviewing this book, which the perfect place to start if you want to get a better grip on the subject!

This book is:

  • Clear
  • Organized
  • Absolutely packed with Bible references
  • Easy to understand

This book is written to help you.

It makes getting a grip on Bible prophecy accessible. Even if you know nothing about what Bible prophecy is, what it talks about, where in the Bible to find it, or even you have no idea what the “End Times” are, this book takes you to the Bible, and lays out what God says about those things to come – the end of the earth as we know it.

It’s a pretty exciting read!

It’s like a roadmap, letting you know where to start, the places to go, and how it all looks from a birds-eye view, including the end of ends. Because that’s what the Bible is doing through prophecy: giving us the big picture of history. It’s a map that is there to be understood – it just takes a bit of examination to thoroughly make sense of it all and see how it weaves through all of history.

Here’s how it’s organized:

  • The book is organized in a way that makes it easy to read chapters out of order. Each chapter focuses on one subject, and are basically in {the Biblical} chronological order.
  • Each chapter is divided up into digestible sections and paragraphs, each of which is a question. This is because the book is organized around those “tough questions” about the end times.
  • For example, chapter three, ‘The Rapture/Appearing’ is organized like this:
  1. Are We Supposed to Watch for Signs?
  2. What Did Jesus Teach About Signs?
  3. What is the Super Sign?
  4. What Are the Geopolitical Signs?
  5. What Are the Signs of Nature?
  6. What Are the Spiritual Signs?
  7. What Are the Cultural Signs?
  8. What Are the Technological Signs?
  9. What Are the Signs of Convergence?
  10. How Close Are We?
  • Each question is answered within a page or two, and in straightforward English. Every answer is given using words meant to be clear and easily understood, and if there’s a theological or complex word, it’s defined.

Here’s how it’s clear and easy to understand:

  • There are a lot of terms and interpretation techniques swirling around Bible prophecy, which this book also defines, clearing away much of the fog of confusion.
  • The authors take the literal, common-sense approach to reading the Bible, which adds to the un-complicating of end times prophecies that this book is aiming to accomplish. That’s really a key to being able to understand Bible prophecy, because then it’s not open to imaginative or subjective interpretation. Where one prophecy is confusing, a place can be found for it on the timeline by looking at the clearly defined prophecies, and there are often multiple references to the same prophetic event scattered throughout the Bible which can shed light on the more confusing verse.
  • One of the most exciting things is the presence of lots of stats and charts. This helps make the information easy to remember.

But maybe the best part is how many Bible references there are!

  • Nothing is said unless they can reference it in God’s word. There are book, chapter and verse references scattered throughout every paragraph. That is what gives this study of the end times such power: it’s based totally on the word of God. If this wasn’t the case, it wouldn’t be worth the paper it’s printed on. But it’s apparent, even from a casual flip-through, that Jeff Kinley and Todd Hampson have taken care to study and unpack these end-times prophecies so that we can understand as clearly as possible what God is communicating.

So if you’re looking to study Bible Prophecy, and don’t know where to start, check out The Prophecy Pros’ Illustrated Guide to Tough Questions About the End Times! (Available on their website.)

My grandpa went to be with the Lord – My family's always been interested in Bible prophecy – So we all looked for hope in the rapture of the church, when we would see him again. And, boy, do world events seem to be lining up with Bible prophecy more than ever before! (Except when Jesus came the first time, 2,000 years ago.) It was always my mom who was interested in Bible prophecy and Israel and the events of Revelation and Daniel. In my Bible study, I've always focused almost exclusively on the New Testament truths of how free is our salvation through faith in Christ alone, and the unshakable identity we receive in Him. And, honestly, other things have claimed my attention throughout most of my Christian life... But now! The future promises of God to Israel, the Church and the world are MIND BLOWING – and they are just on the verge of HAPPENING! I can't get enough of Middle East news and what the Bible says about it, and what God tells us about His chosen witnesses: Israel and the Church. The "last hour" of 1 John looks like it is in it's last few minutes... Are we ready?
