Study the End Times, Heaven, and Hell with Trusted Resources

the end times heaven and hell

Christianity insists that the events of history are not the random effects of chaos; God’s invisible hand is guiding the ages toward a definite goal—a new heaven and new earth. Eschatology—the study of the end times—is largely concerned with future events, but it’s profoundly practical for the here and now. Eschatology reminds us that the conflicts of this age will one day pass away, and that in Christ, God is indeed making all things new (Rev 21:5).

Pastors and other Christians often turn to the books of Daniel and Revelation to understand what the Bible teaches about the end times. There are scores of interpretations to these important books, and none of them are without controversy. It’s easy to become so focused on decoding the meaning of the books’ startling imagery that we forget the essential hopefulness of the prophets’ messages. Thankfully, Christians have been exploring these biblical books for thousands of years. Solid biblical resources from a variety of viewpoints can provide sure theological footing in a treacherous interpretive landscape.

We’ve pulled together over 100 resources on eschatology to help you navigate the complexities of eschatological interpretation. Today we’re highlighting four of the best commentaries on Daniel and Revelation featured during this special event.

See all our featured resources on the end times, heaven, and hell—you can save over 70%!

How Do I Glorify God through My Work?

glorify god through work

We spend the vast majority of our waking hours on the job, yet glorifying God in our work is rarely a topic of conversation in the church. Faithful Christians who desire to honor God with their vocational lives often do so by working ethically, starting lunchtime Bible studies, facilitating a prayer time, or sharing their faith regularly. While each of these activities are honoring to God, he also cares about the tasks of our jobs as well.

Developing a Solid Premarital Counseling Ministry for Your Church

Premarital counseling

On April 27, Faithlife is partnering with Dr.’s Les and Leslie Parrott, authors of the much-praised premarital resource Saving Your Marriage before It Starts, for a free webinar on premarital counseling especially for pastors and ministry leaders. Faithlife spoke with the Parrotts about marriage and divorce in the church and what ministry leaders can do to strengthen Christian marriages.

You need only open a newspaper, scroll through Twitter, or log into Facebook to see them: shocking statistics on the state of marriage. Although oft-repeated claims of a 50% divorce rate in the church are misleading, the outlook isn’t exactly rosy. According to sociologist Bradley Wright, 38% of Christians who regularly attend church have been divorced. That number may seem shocking, but New York Times bestselling authors and marriage experts Les and Leslie Parrott offer what they see as an even more surprising statistic.

The Power of Naming the Bible Study Practices You Do Naturally

labeling your bible

Most of the skills involved in good Bible reading are things people do intuitively anyway. So why bother reading a Bible study magazine or purchasing Bible software—plus all the resources (commentaries, books, hermeneutics manuals) that make that software worth having?

Because, ironically, we are blind to things we do intuitively. It’s by acknowledging, describing, and finally naming our reading practices that we grow in our ability to read the Bible (or any book).

How Obedience to God’s Law Enables Us to Love Others

love and law

To some, the concepts of love and law contradict one another. While love conjures images of warmth and family, law conjures images of coldness and isolation. In our contemporary culture, loving others and believing in objective moral standards are often seen as mutually exclusive commitments. But love and law are not opposed to one another. In fact, according to the Bible, love and law fit together by faith.
