(Torrance, CA) Lay leaders and Christians alike, often shy away from tackling the tough issues when they are not experts on the matter. But in every generation since sin entered into the world, God’s people seem to have wondered, “When and how will God make things right in the world?” Sometimes these eschatological discussions lead to fruitless debates about specific details—but that’s not where Dr. Timothy Paul Jones takes this six-session DVD-based study. Jones, a CBA bestselling award-winning
author and 2010 Retailers Choice Award winner, scholar and professor of leadership at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, helps participants gain much knowledge about the end times, but the primary purpose of this study is not to raise theological I.Q levels. This study focuses first and foremost on Jesus the Messiah, the One through whom God the Father will make all things new. Woven through
this study of Jesus in Revelation, Jones presents straightforward, Scripture-centered examinations of four viewpoints that Christians throughout history have embraced as they looked toward the end of time: Amillennialism, Postmillennialism, Dispensational Premillennialism and Premillennialism.
For each view presented, the objective study includes simple definitions, explanation and discussion of supporting Scriptures, a timeline of the view’s popularity and a focus on what readers can gain from studying this perspective. Common questions and answers are an optional part of each DVD session, so viewers and readers don’t need to be the expert.
The Four Views of the End Times DVD-Based Study Complete Kit (Rose Publishing, $89.99, item number: 9781596364127) includes everything lay leaders or individuals need to teach Four Views of the End Times, using professionally-produced video sessions and a PowerPoint® presentation.

The Four Views of the End Times Study Kit provides all the resources and tools needed to help tackle a tough topic Christians have otherwise felt ill-equipped to teach.
