9781598941074: Understanding the Times: Living Courageously in Prophetic Days

People all over the planet are looking for change and hope. Yet for all the talk radio shows, political rallies, cable news pundits, financial bail-outs, and global summits; humanity remains in a state of perpetual unrest and deep, soulful disquiet. Mankind is discontent and empty, searching and groping for answers for salvation.
Amidst this growing and discouraging state of concern and despair, there is a different perspective altogether. There is a group of people who see present-day events through a different lens. Their paradigm is not shaped by cultural trends or current events. Their hope is not found in humanity. They are not looking to politicians, economists, or educators for salvation. They have a completely different understanding of world events, their place among those events, and where the times are truly leading.
As if watching the global stage from a front row seat in a spectator s grandstand, they look on as participants with a larger perspective. Theirs is a grander context that sees current events not as chance or fate, but rather determined destiny. They see the direction of the world and the progression of humanity through the lens of God's written Word, and they connect the dots that merely confound the wisdom of world leaders.
These are the people who know the Truth. They know Jesus Christ, and they rest in His sovereign plan for the ages. They know that current events are but a small part of an eternal purpose unfolding by God's timetable. They know peace, because they know the Prince of Peace. They know hope, because of an empty tomb. They know promise because they trust the God of exceeding great and precious promises. They know courage because their confidence does not rest in the political or economic processes of men, but in the powerful hand of an almighty Father.
This book will help you live with peace, courage, confidence, and joy in the midst of restless and uncertain times! Every chapter will unlock the truth of Bible prophecy and help you see it connect clearly to present day events. With riveting imagery, captivating examples of currents events, and thorough biblical insight, Dr. Paul Chappell will help you have a heavenly perspective on present day events. Through this study, you will discover how to live with hope, anticipation, and expectation as God s plan for future history unfolds before our very eyes!

About the Author:

Paul Chappell is the senior pastor of the Lancaster Baptist Church and president of West Coast Baptist College in Lancaster, California. His biblical vision has led the church to become one of the most dynamic independent Baptist churches in the nation, and his Christ-centered leadership philosophy has become a model for hundreds of future leaders. He has been married to his wife for twenty-six years and is the father of four children.

Review:

Pastor Paul Chappell has diligently examined the Scriptures and has given a clear and concise understanding as to the prophetic events of which the Bible speaks. In this day, when the Bible events are manifesting themselves around the world, this book will be a wonderful challenge and comfort to every Christian. Each believer will find this book to be a magnificent help to see how God foretold and is in control of what is happening in our world. This is a great book! --Dr. David C. Gibbs, Jr., Christian Law Association, Seminole, Florida

We live in a time where the reporting of sensational events seems to appear in our news headlines every day. We read about great natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, and record breaking storms. We hear of political upheaval at a pace we have never observed before and see how it is linked to financial issues that even a few years ago were inconceivable. Yet, all of these events are so clearly spoken of and predicted by the Word of God. Understanding the Times does a brilliant job of bringing to our understanding the message of the prophets in the light of our experience. It is a balanced, accurate, and encouraging look at Bible prophecy. --Dr. Michael Edwards, Pastor of Heritage Baptist Church, Woodbridge, Virginia

My consideration of Paul Chappell's book, Understanding the Times, followed a Sunday night preaching series at Southwest Baptist Church. The series included numerous sermons from Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, and most of the Minor Prophets. I am of the persuasion that Pastor Chappell's title is very appropriate. God's people need not fear the times; we need only to understand the times. God has revealed clearly that He will fulfill His purposes upon Israel, upon His saints of this age, and upon an unbelieving world. Understanding the Times is indeed motivation to wholeheartedly serve God. May this book encourage many to intensify all efforts to godliness and the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. --Dr. Sam Davison, Pastor Emeritus, Southwest Baptist Church, President, Heartland Baptist Bible College Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
