What in the World is Going On?

Here is Thomas Nelson’s summary of Dr. David Jeremiah’s nonfiction.

The Bible has plenty to say about end times. But until now, there has been no other book that—in straightforward prose that’s easy to understand—gathers ten scriptural prophecies, lays out a chronological checklist, and offers a guideline for sorting it all out. In What in the World is Going On? Dr. David Jeremiah answers the hard questions, including these: How is prophecy playing out in modern Europe? Why does Israel matter? How are oil reserves and Islamic terrorism related? Does the United States play a role in prophecy? How should we live in the end times?

Events unfolding in today’s world are certainly unsettling, but they need not be confusing or frightening. Now you can know the meaning behind what you see in the daily news—and understand what in the world is going on!

This book really helps you prepare for the coming fulfillments of Biblical prophecies. Granted, it is written with a pre-tribulation Rapture viewpoint. It is written clearly; any Christian who reads it will understand what is being said. He includes some visual aids in the book, but not too many to distract. He also is very prolific with scripture references and quotes, ranging from Tim LaHaye and Ernest Shackleton. It not only gives clear facts and leaves some mysteries, but also gives reassurance that God is in control.

My rating: 4 stars.

  1. Wow, what an interesting looking book! It certainly looks like it could answer a ton of 'deep' spiritual questions that are being passed around these days.

    ~Son of the King~

  2. Hey Noah, I just noticed you interview Christian fiction authors. Have you read either of Kristen Wisen's books, "The Appearing", or "Overcomer?" They are Christian fiction/end times books from the prewrath perspective. I'm going to be spending the next week with Kristen. Bet I could get you an interview, if you are interested! I do love listening to David Jeremiah on the radio. He is a very good Bible teacher.

  3. Son of the King: I am glad you are interested! It helped me understand many things!

    Mrs. Hall: Thank you for letting me know about those! An interview sounds great! Thank you very much!

  4. Mrs. Hall: Do you want me to email you with the questions?

  5. I forgot to check back in with you, Noah. Sorry about that! If you email me the questions I can forward them to Mrs. Wisen and I'm sure she'd love to answer them for you. (I thought the Appearing was great, Overcomer, a grand slam!)

    My email:

  6. By the way, Noah, I have copies of those books, signed by the author, if you'd like to borrow for reading...You have to guard them with your life, however... :)

  7. Ok, I actually would like to read her book(s) first, before conducting an interview. When I have, I can contact you then. Thank you for the offer!

  8. I would LOVE to borrow them! This next Sunday perhaps?

  9. I will bring The Appearing on Sunday. Daisy is reading Overcomer at the moment. When she is finished with it, I'll get that to you. I know Mrs. Wisen will think this is a lot of fun!

  10. Neat! End times prophecy is always a good read :) May have to check it out!
