Publisher's Weekly Review

For many Christians, the end of the millennium represents the time of Christ's Second Coming, which will usher in a "new heaven and a new earth." Of course, there are as many interpretations of the book of Revelation as there are Christians. With his characteristic humor and relaxed style, popular author Lucado (Just Like Jesus) offers a brief survey of the various opinions related to the Second Coming. There are some Christians and many non-Christians who fear the Second Coming because of the biblical and popular images of separation and destruction. Others are so obsessed with the Second Coming that they have tried to pinpoint the exact date on which it will happen, so that they can be ready. Still others wonder if they will be turned away at Heaven's gate, if they will be humiliated when God reveals publicly all their sins, or if anyone will recognize them when they get a new body. In each chapter, Lucado interprets various scriptural passages on the Second Coming. Based on his interpretation of Revelation, Lucado contends that the day of Christ's coming will be one of reckoning, redemption, rejuvenation and rewards. A study guide to the many questions and biblical passages raised in the book is included as an appendix. Lucado deals with some difficult questions in a warm and engaging manner that has broad appeal. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
