Book #21: Last Things First by Graham Beynon

Number of pages: 175

A book about the end of the world does not sound like a particularly cheerful read, but I enjoyed this immensely.

Over nine chapters, Graham Beynon uses different passages from the Bible to explain the importance of understanding why the end of the world is important to Christians, and why we should not pretend it will not happen. It is a subject that I have been very nervous about in the past, often with the fear of Hell, but this book has helped me to remember that we should be looking forward to the New Creation promised in the Bible and to believe that Jesus came to rescue us from our sins, and how I should trust in Him.

The really helpful thing about this book was that each chapter ended with a short study that I was able go to through by looking at relevant Bible passages. The book briefly touches on the theories regarding the Antichrist and the Rapture, but only in a short appendix at the end.

Overall, this is a recommended book for anyone who is Christian, or looking into Christianity.

Next book: Men at Arms by Terry Pratchett
