ONLINE BOOKS: ESCHATOLOGY / END-TIMES THEOLOGY
ABOUT ESCHATOLOGY (End-Times Prophecy and Theology): These works have been placed online so that those of a Catholic as well as a Protestant and Gospel faith might become more familiar with the two great divisions in eschatological interpretation, that is, of end-times theology, and for the purpose of presenting the points of the eschatological controversy through the examination of pre- and post-Reformation vs. Counter-Reformation and modern interpretations. Modern prophetic interpretation gives us a number of views (e.g. dispensationalism, premillennailism, etc.) and a future Antichrist, while the historical interpretation watches the rise of Antichrist with the apostasy of the early church and the fall of the Roman empire; a view which prevailed from Apostolic, Medieval, and through Reformation thought.

"There is a widespread prejudice against the study of the Apocalypse. Though it is the great prophetic Book of the New Testament, the last of all the writings of Inspiration, a special message from the ascended Saviour to His Churches on earth, and pressed upon every one's attention with uncommon urgency, there are religious guides, sworn to teach "the whole counsel of God," who make a merit of not understanding it, and of not wishing to occupy themselves with it. If such treatment of an acknowledged part of the Sacred Canon is compatible with ministerial fidelity and Christian duty, the author of these Lectures is very much mistaken in his understanding of Christ's commands, as well as in his estimate of the purposes for which a Divine Revelation has been given."
W.L.S.G., Rev., a Friend to St. Peter, Professor of Stenography; and Author of "Four Dialogues between the Apostle St. Peter and His Holiness the Pope of Rome."
