Book Review: "Unmasking the Antichrist," by Ron Rhodes

From the publisher, Harvest House:

The identity of the Antichrist is a topic of hot debate today. Adding fuel to the flame of rampant speculation are voices saying the Antichrist might be a Muslim or a Jew—a view that respected Bible scholar and bestselling author Ron Rhodes argues against in this revealing, Scripture-based exploration of:
  • what God’s Word does and does not tell us about the Antichrist
  • the advance signs, power moves, and eventual fall of this person
  • the mysterious “Gog”—leader of Northern military coalition mentioned in Ezekiel
It is time for a trustworthy study of this topic to take the place of emotion-based suspicions. Believers, followers of end-times news, and anyone anxiously watching the turmoil of today’s political landscape will be thankful for this thorough, straightforward resource. Excellent for church and personal libraries.

This book is very informative for anyone who desires to know more about end-time events. As I have mentioned in a previous post, I teach a class at church, and one unit is on end-time events. Since this class is for 5th grade girls (10-11 years old), I am challenged to really know what I'm talking about, so I can handle the information well without overwhelming them with too much. Easy to say, hard to do.

That is why books like this one are helpful. Ron Rhodes goes through many common topics and questions related to the Antichrist and presents them in an easily read way. Although none of these books satisfy my curious entirely, I realize that has more to do with the basic mystery surrounding as-yet-unfulfilled prophecy than it does the content of said books.

Regardless, this is an interesting book and worth the read if you are at all curious about who the Antichrist is, and whether the many things circulating about him are true or false.

Thanks to Harvest House for a complimentary copy of this book. This review is my opinion, and I was not required to write something positive.
