About-

Written in moments of history when the forces of hell appeared to have taken control of the earth, Daniel and Revelation are the two most intriguing and often difficult Bible books for the average reader to interpret. However, to avoid them is to miss their messages of hope and faith for today's Christians living in a world seemingly engulfed by evil.

With easy to understand explanations of why and how apocalyptic literature was written, Dr. Efird strips away the mystery surrounding the strange visions and symbols. Putting them in their proper perspective, he leads the reader to the heart of the biblical writers' very simple message - "God is always in control." Dr. Efird presents Daniel and Revelation not as mere road maps for the end of the world, but as magnificent biblical literature to give Christians confidence in the supreme majesty and power of God. Excellent for personal or group study with reflective questions for each chapter.
