Finding the End of the World by Ron Braley was Xulon Press' 2011 Christian Choice Book Award winner for eschatological works. In it, Ron offers an unbiased self-guided tour of what the Bible and history reveal about Jesus' return and all it will entail including the end of the age and the physical insertion of God's Kingdom in the new age and subsequent re-creation. The book is presented in a way that lends itself to an individual or group study of end-of-the-world topics.
Here's a short list of major topics the book presents in a literal, unbiased, complete, and provocative manner:
True faith and why an understanding of Scripture is important to it.
How to study Scripture effectively.
Overview of Israel's history in the light of prophecy and the apocalypse.
The Antichrist, false prophet, future 'Babylon' - as a location and unfaithful bride, the Great Tribulation, makeup of the Antichrist's kingdom, and more!
God's chosen, the '144,000', those beheaded for their faith, and others.
A verse-by-verse study of Daniel's visions and the Revelation.
Side-by-side comparison and study of the Mount of Olives discussion (Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21).

The highly-anticipated Finding Answers to Tough Questions About God & Christianity is a sobering compilation of questions posed by many people I've met throughout my journeys. Some came from email messages and Facebook queries where I asked for questions or life situations people felt the church couldn't (or wouldn't) answer. Others came from very smart (and usually young) people who felt the church had 'let them down' or just responded with useless religion at a time when they really needed applications of God's ways. The result is frustration, confusion, and a potential exodus from the faith.
It is time to answer these real-life questions posed by very real and very frustrated people . . . with God's wisdom, not man's. Click hereto see the draft Table of Contents and Introduction.
Keep an eye out in 2018 for this gem, which will be published in two versions: A comprehensive version that answers adult questions and a children's version to address questions kids raise about God and Christianity.
