As the years go by, frenzied excitement abounds in religious circles about the question of whether or not we are living in the last days. Apocalyptic scenarios for the new millennium have even made their way into secular fiction, movies, and television.
Some of the confusion is understandable. Prophetic passages in Scripture are notoriously difficult to interpret and understand. The widespread misunderstanding of these passages has led to unbridled speculation and predictions about the details and dates surrounding the last days.
Equipping ourselves with some reliable tools for understanding the biblical account of the end times can give us hope as we navigate through the confusion and toward a confident faith in the Lord, whose return we expectantly await.
In Ligonier Ministries' 1999 National Conference, "The End?: Finding Hope in the Millennial Maze," Eric Alexander, Sinclair Ferguson, Ken Gentry, Michael Horton, Richard Stortz, and R.C. Sproul address the critical issues for understanding the key teachings of the Bible on the last days. This series will help provide you with the tools you need to make sense of the millennial maze.
