We just added a new video debate in our debate section on the understanding of the book of Revelation. This symposium was put together by American Vision and the debaters are none other than Jim Hamilton (futurist), Gary Demar (Partial Preterist) & Sam Waldron (Idealist)
We have added Richard Baucham’s important work on themes in the book of Revelation titled Climax of Prophecy to our online books section. Please consider that this is found on Google Books and does not contain the book in its entirety. There is enough information however to warrant posting it.
Dr. Kim Riddlebarger posted an interesting review of a book authored by Dr. David Jeremiah titled Agents of the Apocalypse. The book seemingly uses fictional characters to help people understand the book of Revelation. Dr. Riddlebarger argues in this article that there is a tremendous inconsistency in using fictional characters while adhering to the dispensationalists hermeneutical principle to interpret the bible “literally”.
Also this week, Dr. Sam Storms posted a couple of posts on his blog dealing with the importance of the second coming of the Lord Jesus titled Four Important Truths Relating to the Second Coming of Christ (Part 2). While many are waiting for raptures and women riding beasts, Dr. Storms suggests that much of what we must anticipate in the 2nd -coming is found in the text of Hebrews 9:27-28
Finally, we posted an excellent article written by Dr. D.A. Carson on the question of the most common errors in our understanding and proclamation of the Kingdom. The article has been posted under our Kingdom section.

And now for today’s news: We’ve just added some new materials to our section on the Revelation.
First, there is an article by Sam Waldron, entitled, A Redemptive-Historical, Modified Idealist Approach to the Book of Revelation. This is a great piece, explaining how to interpret the Revelation in a manner that is consistent with the teaching of the whole Bible.
We have also added a post from Issues Etc., called The End Times in Revelation. It includes an excellent time line of the Revelation, and also points out common misinterpretations of the main symbols.
Finally, we hope you will enjoy Dean Davis’ helpful summaries of the purpose, literary genre, structure, and main symbols of the Revelation. These two essays supply a conceptual map that will prepare you for your exciting journey through this challenging book.
