I just started this study. Check back to see update.

Complete Four Views of the End Times DVD-based Small Group Study Kit - Six Sessions

Nearly 2000 years, Christians have wondered when will Christ return again. When he ascended into heaven, his disciples asked about the timing. The scriptures have many passages that refer to this important event. In this study, we'll explore what the Bible actually says about the end times that lead to the return of Jesus Christ. The differing ideas that divide believers into four major points-of-view are examined in this Four Views of the End Times DVD-based Small Group Study.This six-part study shows four different Revelation time lines and tackles Dispensational Premillennialism, Postmillennialism, Historic Premillennialism, and Amillennialism. For each view,Four Views of the End Times includes a definition, supporting Scriptures, a time line of the view's popularity, and a sampling of Christian leaders supporting that view. Common questions and answers are handled as part of each session, so you don't need to be the expert.

Four Views of the End Times DVD-based Small Group Study participants will enjoy this study and will come away with an objective view of the four major positions. They will also see that the focus of Scripture is Jesus Christ himself. over and above specific details. They will understand that each Christian needs to be ready at all times, and that no one knows the exact timing of events.

"It doesn't take long for a discussion of the end times to get kooky, hyper-complex, or both. If you're afraid to talk about the last days because you're afraid you'll wind up gazing at byzantine prophecy charts or listening to someone talk about how you ought to be storing up food and weapons, this book is for you. Timothy Paul Jones, one of the most brilliant scholars in the Christian world, takes the words of Jesus seriously, all of them, including the ones about the end. He takes them so seriously that he refuses to hide them under a bushel of scholarly jargon or of sensationalistic hype. Read and be blessed."
-Russell D. Moore, Provost, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 

"It seems that the Christian interest in the end times will never end. Unfortunately, much confusion reigns within the various evangelical camps regarding what the other camps believe. If you are interested in really understanding the several evangelical approaches to the end times this study is a must! Dr. Jones knows his material well and presents it clearly. I highly commend Dr. Jones for his intelligent, fair, and practical presenation of theFour Views of the End Times."
