Our Review

Unfortunately, there is, in our day, a waning interest in Bible prophecy and the study of the return of Christ. Yet this is the blessed hope of the Christian (Titus 2:13) and the event we are to be eagerly anticipating (Phil. 3:20). Blackstone's book, first published in 1878, is a good introduction to a Biblical understanding of Christ’s return. The great advantage of this book is that it is generally non-technical and fairly easy to understand. It also has an abundance of Scripture references both in the text and in the footnotes. In fact, all the footnotes are Scripture references and the Scriptures are printed out in full so they don’t have to be looked up. There is also a Scripture index. If you don’t know a lot about the doctrine of the return of Christ this would be a good place to start.
