"The End of the World in a Kitchen Sink"
"The Armageddon Code" offers a relatively comprehensive overview of wildly divergent views concerning the future of the world and the return of Jesus at the end of the age. Thought provoking and fascinating, the book offers a balanced view of a variety of perspectives. A great listen.
"Good Attempt, Sloppy Work"
Better command of eschatology and the Christian personalities he interviewed for this book.
Probably not, see below.
I love that Mr. Hallowell's attempts to explore and explain the complexities of Christian eschatology. I also appreciate that he brings in Christian leaders from all sides of the issue/s. While I have my own pet theories and, frankly, hopes (if it was put to a vote I'd be all for a Pretrib rapture!) I recognize this issue is far from clear and therefore is not "settled" theology. As we move forward in time the various theories will eliminate themselves and it is for that reason that I'm only dogmatic in my view that Jesus WILL come again, and will fulfill all that has been promised. My issue with this book is how Mr. Halloway refers to his sources as "experts" and "scholars". Some are, but some definitely are not. For example, Hank Hanegraaff who is neither of those things. While I personally find Hanegraaff's Preterist theology odious, it is appropriate that Mr. Hallowell included it in his book. However, calling a man without Biblical education a "scholar" and "expert" makes Mr. Hallowell seem untrustworthy.
Not a lot of information. It reads as though the author did a bunch of interviews and wrote a story based on these interviews
Not very engaging. A rehash of commonly known theories. No 'CODE' to it. Not very engaging. A rehash of commonly known theories. No 'CODE' to it.
