The Last and Future World Author:James Montgomery Boice Dr. Boise discusses general prophetic themes within their wider biblical context. He not only describes what will happen in the end times but shows how this is related to the rest of Scripture. For James Boise, the importance of prophecy lies in the fact that God Himself appeals to the fulfillment of prophecy as evidence that He alone is God and... more » that He is faithful to all who follow Him.
Dr. Boise also shows the significance prophecy can have for your life. A Christian with a knowledge of prophecy can have direction and confidence in his life. He can know where he's going and he can have the confidence that God directs everything that happens -- not only in his life but in the world situation. As Dr. Boice says, "That confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ can take a normal person like you or me and allow him to move about in his more limited world -- free of fear, aware of reality, and yet with eye and head uplifted to the One who is even now accomplishing His perfect will in us and who will come again to establish that LAST AND FUTURE WORLD.
