DVD

The DVD includes 6 15-20 minute sessions taught by Dr. Timothy Paul Jones. Dr. Jones is a very good teacher. He stays on topic and shows many slides that add to the presentation. At the end of each session Jones answers one or two common questions about the topic covered in that session. He talks fast but he’s easy to follow. The DVD is great for private or group study.

Conclusion

Four Views on the End Times DVD series from Rose Publishing is an excellent introduction to the four prominent end time views. The material is presented in an easy to follow and understand manner and without bias. Pros and cons are given for the various views and the views are compared with Scripture. The views are treated fairly and accurately. I recommend Four Views on the End Times Complete Kit for personal or group study.

 

Rose Publishing provided this DVD study series free for review. I was not required to give a positive review- only an honest review.

    Dear Randy:

    Once again technology strikes! Is there a purely print version of this product available? I have this wonderful powerful computer that is useless to me except for e-mail, and internet searches if they don’t get too complicated. It is a Mac G5 with twin processors loaded with every graphics program imaginable,(my wife was a nationally known Editor and Graphic Artist) I can barely get it turned on for online banking e-mail etc.

    The product you reviewed looks interesting, but unless it has a Hard Copy version, it will be of no use to me. I suppose I could learn a little about using this computer, but it is hard to teach an old dog to do new tricks.

    Please let me know if there is an all print version available, I’m not even knowledgeable enough to get a CD to play on the computer, or even how to turn on the sound, that’s what happens when one depends on the resident expert to set every thing up. I am more than a little embarrassed about this, but the situation is what it is.

    Sincerely Yours

    Dear Randy:

    I have called Rose Publishing, and am in possession of their print version of Four Views of the End Times. The book is named End-Times Prophecy, it has a table of contents Chapter Notes for all 20 chapters, and an index. There are 363 well written and edited pages. It also includes a summarizing chart of the four major views of the End Times,this I purchased separately, this chart is included in the DVD Edition. I haven’t seen the DVD/Powerpoint version that you have reviewed, but from reading your review, I believe that the book is at least as thorough in its covering of the subjects.

    This presentation gives the visual effect of a textbook written perhaps for 12th grade students or maybe for Freshmen or Sophomores in college. There are numerous photos, illustrations, charts, and other well organized visually appealing additions to the basic text. As teachers we were offered comparable sorts of layouts for our students to help the pupil to visualize and comprehend the text for the subjects we taught. This presentation is well organized, appealing visually, well documented, with plenty of references and is easy to understand. Indeed this looks very much like a well designed and edited textbook, it is evident the writer(s) are very well trained in how to present information. I can detect at first reading no bias. The four major views are fairly and clearly presented, complete with appropriate scripture references to support the given viewpoints, along with historical perspectives and analyses of them. This is a very thorough alternative for those of us who prefer to read. I recommend these publications highly, they are well thought out and give a fair exposition of the four major viewpoints of how the end times will play out.

    For those of you all who prefer a more traditional approach to presentations, this book, End Times Prophecy is an excellent version of the product that Randy reviewed. I think the Book cost just under $20.00 and the Four Views of the End Times chart was around $4.00. I couldn’t detect any bias from the author(s), it seems to be a balanced fair presentation.

    Yours in Christ
