Now that many of our titles available as e-books, we will offer E-book Book Review Blog Tours from time to time. This first time around we are offering From the Resurrection to His Return: Living Faithfully in the Last Days by D. A. Carson for review.
About the Book:
This is not another book on what view to hold about the reality of Jesus’ return but it is about how to live in the light of his imminent return. D. A. Carson accurately determines that the Christian church has always lived in what the bible terms ‘the last days’…the period between his ascension to his Father in heaven and his return on the clouds of heaven.
Based on Paul’s teaching in 2 Timothy 3, D. A. Carson gives wise counsel to today’s church to avoid false teaching and to seek good mentors, those who will lead us in truth. He shows that to rely on worldly wisdom is folly, that the world is utterly sinful, but rather to cling to the Bible as the source of our counsel and guidance and help. But more than that he shows us that it is in holding the Bible out to a needy world we take its message to where it is needed the most.
To live in the last days is not to hang on in quiet desperation but to boldly take the word of God and apply it to every situation knowing that it will meet every need just as it has throughout the two millennia since Jesus promised to return again. That is how to live in the last days!
About the Author:
