Review: "The Book of Signs" by Dr. David Jeremiah

Is the End of the World Near? 

When you watch the news and read the headlines, it seems our world is hurtling towards disaster.  Christ followers are taught to be ready for His Second Coming, although no one knows the day or the hour He will return.

The Bible is filled with prophetic passages to give us clues about what to expect in the end times leading up to the apocalypse; however, unless you're a Biblical scholar, many of these scriptures may seem cryptic.  

In The Book of Signs, Dr. David Jeremiah shares deep insight into complicated Biblical prophecy to make it digestable and easy to understand.  Your eyes will be opened, and the meaning behind familiar scriptures will be revealed  like never before.

The Book of Signs Simplifies the Complicated

Not only does the book examine the different nations in light of their respective roles in end time prophecy, Dr. David Jeremiah explains the mechanics of the Rapture (which he cites will be pre-trib), shares insight on what the resurrection and judgment will be like, explains all the characters and events from the book of Revelation, and elaborates on the final act:  the return of Jesus, His millenial rule, the Great White Throne Judgment (which is reserved for unbelievers), and what a new heaven and Earth will really be like.

If you're like me, I've always gotten confused by the sequence of Biblical events.  This book is very enlightening and lays out the proper order so you can know what to expect.

The Book of Signs Is Must-Have for Every Believer

There are many books on the market that attempt to explain Biblical prophecy and end time events; however, The Book of Signs by Dr. David Jeremiah is the best one I've ever read.  His knowledge and expertise in this area is unsurpassed, and the book is constructed on solid Biblical study and not personal supposition.

From 1995-2007, Christians were fascinated by the Left Behind series written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins because we are deeply curious what the end will actually be like.  The Book of Signs is an authoritative resource that will explain it all without any fabrications.  When you know what to look for, you'll be amazed at how close we appear to be!

It took me three months to finish this book, not because it's hard to read but because I wanted time to chew and ruminate on each chapter to make sure I absorbed the concepts.  The content is deep and challenging, but it's also straightforward and simplistic enough for anyone to understand.  

I recommend purchasing the hardcover edition.  I made the mistake of ordering the paperback to save money, but since I like to return to the book to reread parts and use it as a reference manual, it's quickly starting to tatter.  

The Book of Signs might even serve as a useful tool on your bookshelf for those who find themselves left behind.

'Tis the Season for a Christmas Book Giveaway: Two Copies of "The Christmas Town" by Donna VanLiere

  The Christmas Town Became a Hallmark Movie Fans of Candace Cameron Bure will remember her portrayal of Lauren Gabriel in Hallmark's 2019 movie,  Christmas Town , which is based on this book by Donna VanLiere.  However, the Hallmark version has almost nothing in common with the novel.  The book and the movie share only three things:  character names, setting, and the fact Lauren was once a foster child.     Since the storylines veer in different directions, the book will take you on a far deeper and better journey.   Lauren is a 21-year-old cashier who grew up in foster homes, always hoping the relationship with her drug addict mother might one day be restored.  She longs for family.  One day, she witnesses a car accident that thrusts her into the small town of Grandon.  She loves the town and all the people in it and finds the faith, hope, love, and family her heart has always longed for. The Christmas Town is a very uplifting story brimming with faith, generosity, servanthood,

Don't Let Your Kids Read Harry Potter

Have your kids been imploring you for permission to read the Harry Potter series?  It seems like everyone is hooked on these books, making your kids feel awkwardly quarantined from their peers over the divide on principles.  After all, Scholastic book orders provided by the indoctrination centers of public schools are brimming with Harry Potter selections, serving up an alarming dose of witchcraft for the youngest readers to the oldest.  Isn't everything sanctioned by the schools supposed to be in your child's best interests?  Hardly.  Not only is the book addiction rampant, but the frenzy is intensified by movies, museum exhibits, and video games.  A full line of merchandise supports the franchise, offering consumers Harry Potter board games, magic wands, apparel, cups, calendars, umbrellas, necklaces, and other fan fare products.  If Harry Potter is so evil and insidious, surely the bandwagon would be fairly empty, right?  We find the answer in I Corinthians 2:14,
