The Footsteps of the Messiah – Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum A Study of the Sequence of Prophetic Events – 800 pages

A very thorough work with helpful Charts and Diagrams – almost every aspect of Eschatology appears to have been covered – and probably a book every serious student of the prophetic word should have on his bookshelf.

Our overall view of its contents can perhaps be best summed up by Charles Ryrie in his Foreword:

Eschatology seems to suffer at the hands both of its friends and foes. Those who play it down usually avoid assigning specific meaning to prophetic texts. Those who play it up often assign too much.

But the prophetic portions of the Bible won’t go away. The Bible interpreter must interact with them and in the detail and specifically in which they were written. Dr. Fructenbaum has done that, seeking always to try and understand the full meaning of the biblical revelation. His frame of reference is dispensational, pretribulational Premillenialism – the only one that can provide a consistently harmonious interpretation of prophecy.

The author’s consideration of the biblical material is thorough and thought- provoking. His conclusions will not always meet with full agreement even by those who share his approach, but those who read this book cannot help but be instructed and stimulated by his work.
