The Last Days According to Jesus: When Did Jesus Say He Would Return? by R.C. Sproul

Goodreads | Amazon
Speculation and theories concerning what the last days have in store for us abound. In the hype of sensational books and movies, one important question is often obscured: 

What did 
Jesus believe and teach about the end times and the timing of his return? 

In his characteristically precise and compelling style, renowned theologian R.C. Sproul points us to the words of Christ as providing solid, biblical footing amid ever-shifting opinions about the age to come. He covers key questions, such as:

· What exactly did Jesus teach about the last days on Mount Olivet?

· What generation will witness the end?
· What did Paul teach in his letters?
· What did John teach in Revelation?
· When is the resurrection?
· When is the millennium?

In addition to answering these important questions about the last days, Dr. Sproul presents an authoritative explanation of biblical teaching about the end times and the timing of Christ's return.

Understanding the “last days” according to Bible is a difficult task, as many varying interpretations exist. In The Last Days According to Jesus: When Did Jesus Say He Would Return?, R.C. Sproul tackles several of the challenging questions regarding the “last days” and offers his interpretation of the words of Jesus. He does use a lot of quotations from scholars and commentators as support, which makes a bit tedious at times, but overall, the book is quite interesting. Whether or not readers agree with his conclusions about the “last days,” The Last Days According to Jesus is an entirely thought-provoking read.

Thanks to Baker Book Bloggers, I received a copy of The Last Days According to Jesus and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
