Speculation about the apocalypse has become almost an industry. "The world is coming to an end" the frenzied prophets cry. We know that the Lord will come again, and eagerly await Him, but where is sober teaching on the apocalypse?Read a balanced, well-researched treatment of the end times, interpreted from the Christian East by faithful Orthodox saints, martyrs and Spirit-filled Fathers of the Faith.Historic Christian teaching on the rapture, the millenium, the state of Israel and the role of the Church in the last days is something quite different from what is commonly taught in the pop religion of today's evangelicalism. Read A Second Look at the Second Coming and find out!
