Reviews - What do our customers think?
I was dissappointed  Jun 4, 2008
I purchased the book for 4.99 from a discount bookstore. I thought the table of contents looked like they hit some interesting subjects.

If the book is good for introducing the basics? - yes and no. I believe that the book has a decent layout of scriptures to get started with. But I noticed that they referred to Satan as "the biggest loser of all time" and his followers as "celestial chumps". This seems like a great ignorance of the scripture. Jude 1:8-11 tells us:

"Likewise also these dreamers defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignitaries. Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!" But these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves. Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah." -nkjv

Many will not think this to be a big deal, but obviously, if Jude, an author of the Bible found it important enough to include in the scriptures, it must be something we should take seriously. The fact that this important principle is ignored and is possibly not known, causes me to doubt the authors' scriptural foundation.

Another thing to note that the verses quoted in this book are taken from the New Living Translation. This is a paraphrase translation, not a literal word for word translation. It's goal is to translate the idea of the scripture for easier readability. The problem with this is that nobody has a full understanding of the scripture. If nobody has a full understanding of the scripture, then how can anyone give us a fully accurate paraphrase of the Bible. Point being, paraphrase Bibles lose accuracy. When you're dealing with something as important as the scriptures, you want to be as accurate as possible.

I do like the simplified writing style of the authors and how they have broken things down so as to be easy to understand. I like the structure of the book and many facts that they include are excellent. My concern is for the disregard of non-prophetic scriptures such as Jude, and the bad example set by ignoring them.
 
Sorry, I liked it  Feb 1, 2006
First, it is a 101 book :) Surprisingly, it gave me exactly what I was looking for. A list of scriptures that showed the propecy of Jesus coming before it happens. It gave maybe 15-20 of them. It also gave some generic, and maybe not complete end of times prophecies, this list did not have the associated scriptures or explanations. But, at least it was included. Well, to be honest, they could have included the scriptures. The book goes on about some interesting details about heaven and some other topics that would be interesting to a new Christian. I thought the book was great for what it was, it is a nice book to give someone who is not a Bible prophecy expert. Maybe you are trying to show a new Christian different ideas, and build their faith and keep them interested. Something like that would be who this book is used for. I hope this helps.
 
Bible Prophecy 101 Is Correct!  Dec 20, 2004
The title of this book couldn't be more correct: It's a bare-bones, basic intro to understanding biblical prophesy/terms. As I am writing this review, I'm only half way through the book, and it has continued to capture my attention with it's content.
It's perfect for a reader who, is curious to see what God has in store for their future, and wants an insightful overview. At minimum, for what it's worth, this book deserves 2 1/2 to 3 stars.
 
Not any good...  Oct 5, 2004
Read, 'Bruce and Stan's Guide to Bible Prophecy' the cover's yellow. This 101 guide's HORRIBLE. Harvest House publishes everything these men touch.
