Into the Cauldron

We live in an era in which much of Bible prophecy teaching is mocked and marginalized.

And I’m just talking about from within the Christian community! To be more specific, it is becoming popular within some evangelical circles to bash prophecy teaching and prophecy teachers.

To be fair, some Bible prophecy teachers over the years have engaged in date setting or other irresponsible speculations. However, those few who have done so have provided ammo to the scoffers, who hold them up for (proper) ridicule, while also tarring the rest of the prophecy community with the same brush.

It is a Straw Man argument and one that tragically convinces many young people not to listen to prophecy teaching. I do lament those within the prophecy community who have harmed the cause with wild speculations.

Terry James, though, isn’t one of them.

My dear friend of two decades is perhaps the current patriarch of the movement. He is one of the most credible, responsible, and biblical prophecy teachers, ever. I started my editing and writing career by editing Terry’s books. His ability to teach sometimes-difficult concepts, and his keen eye for prophetic signals in our world compelled me to follow in his footsteps.

I have the privilege of visiting with him regularly, and enjoy writing for RaptureReady (the world’s largest Bible prophecy website), his co-endeavor with our good friend, Todd Strandberg.

So it is that I have eagerly anticipated the arrival of Terry’s new prophecy book, Cauldron, which is one of the best primers for the prophecy student…that I’ve ever seen. Terry told me recently:

“I wrote it in much more down-to-earth terms…I want it to be a basic understanding of where the Middle East is going.”

That includes his explanations of the nations involved, the importance of Jerusalem, Israel’s role in the last days, etc.

He not only outlines prophecy for the novice, he skillfully analyzes a whole range of reasons Bible prophecy is relevant for the individual.

I read a lot of Bible prophecy books, and enjoy many of them. Few though hit on all cylinders like Cauldron.

So wherever you purchase books, remember—Cauldron: Supernatural Implications of the Current Middle East and Why What Happens Next Will Be Important to You.

All in Good Fun?
One of the primary sources of hope in our world today is the marvelous example of predictive prophecy in the Bible. Contrary to the view of some Christian leaders in America—who like to marginalize Bible prophecy teaching—the Bible is loaded with such examples. From epic, sweeping prophecies

Memorial Day. Remembering the dead is always poignant. Those of us of a certain generation are emotional at the site of American flags on display in military cemeteries. Decorating family graves is bittersweet. Remembering those who gave their lives protecting us is no small matter. I think of al
