Through a thought-provoking, journalistic voice, Billy Hallowell, faith editor for theblaze.com, provides objective one-on-one interviews with various leading voices in Christian ministry to explain what they believe the Bible teaches us about the last days. From its easy-to-understand writing style to its glossary of terms and other helpful tools, everything about this book was created to allow you to educate yourself on what the Bible says, compare what the experts believe, and draw your own conclusions about the end.

Perhaps

What character would you cut from The Armageddon Code?

Hank Hanegraaff

Any additional comments?

I love that Mr. Hallowell's attempts to explore and explain the complexities of Christian eschatology. I also appreciate that he brings in Christian leaders from all sides of the issue/s. While I have my own pet theories and, frankly, hopes (if it was put to a vote I'd be all for a Pretrib rapture!) I recognize this issue is far from clear and therefore is not "settled" theology. As we move forward in time the various theories will eliminate themselves and it is for that reason that I'm only dogmatic in my view that Jesus WILL come again, and will fulfill all that has been promised. My issue with this book is how Mr. Halloway refers to his sources as "experts" and "scholars". Some are, but some definitely are not. For example, Hank Hanegraaff who is neither of those things. While I personally find Hanegraaff's Preterist theology odious, it is appropriate that Mr. Hallowell included it in his book. However, calling a man without Biblical education a "scholar" and "expert" makes Mr. Hallowell seem untrustworthy.
