What You Need to Know About Bible Prophecy: 12 Lessons That Can Change Your Life by Max Anders

Max Anders’ book, What You Need to Know About Bible Prophecy, is twelve chapters of questions (such as “Why study prophecy?” and “What are the major views on the Rapture?”) and answers, with a few questions for further thought and discussion at the end of each chapter. Anders gives definitions for all of the basic questions of Biblical prophecy and tells readers the varying views held regarding each topic.
As a resource for new believers, for people just beginning to delve into what Bible prophecy entails, for seekers interested in finding out what their Christian neighbors are really talking about, even for Bible study leaders who are helping others gain a greater understanding of prophecy, this would be okay.
However, if you are, like me, someone who has been studying about Bible prophecy for a while or are serious about understanding prophecy, this probably isn’t the book for you. I really wouldn’t even call it a study. It’s more like a glossary and overview of prophecy terms and beliefs. I would highly recommend that if you are serious about Bible prophecy  you look somewhere else for answers, since the author never makes a distinction about what is Bible-based truth and what “some people believe.” It sounded to me like he’s confused as to what he actually believes. I’m sorry to say that this book did not change my life.
I received a free copy of this book from the BookSneeze Blogger Review program. I was not required to give a positive review. All opinions are my own.
