The booklet holds to Christian futurism whereas integrating the Apocalypse of John with the conditional dynamics of prophecy taught in Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, and diverse different books during the outdated testomony. the recent paradigm concludes that the ultimate antichrist (also referred to as the fellow of lawlessness, the beast, and the 8th king) may well learn the apocalyptic prophecy of his doom whereas figuring out in its place to repent of evil and switch to the Lord, that's a biblical alternative that will satisfy the divine reasons of the apocalypse. This state-of-the-art scholarship additionally develops new biblical types of angels showing as people, the descent of Christ into hell, and the kings in Revelation that contain with this end-time theology that encourages desire in all circumstances.

"James Goetz leads us on a travel of the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, to discover what it has to claim approximately destiny judgment and salvation. He good appreciates that biblical prophesies may have a number of fulfillments and takes this into consideration in his wide-ranging explorations. touching on judgment, he argues that the various biblical texts on the subject of the longer term are usually not easily unconditional predictions of what's going to ensue yet are conditional results. If we repent, we will be able to steer clear of the implications that God says might be our destiny. Goetz even holds out wish for postmortem conversion, even from in the Lake of fireside itself. this can be a viewpoint that warrants cautious attention and extra exploration."

"James Goetz's considerate protection of 'Conditional Futurism' must have nice attract any evangelical who yearns for a much wider wish. He persuasively argues, first, that Bible prophecies pertaining to destiny punishment more often than not forecast what's going to ensue until (or until eventually) sure stipulations are met and, moment, powerful biblical warrant exists for the potential for postmortem conversions. His interpretation of the hot Jerusalem with gates that by no means shut is principally robust during this regard."

"James Goetz's 'Conditional Futurism' surveys the Bible from Genesis via Revelation, targeting predictions, particularly predictions of judgment. He concludes that those predictions have been regularly conditional; that God could continuously relent if the recipients could repent. This leads him to the belief that even the antichrist may perhaps repent and be reconciled to Christ, and to the realization that postmortem conversions also are probable."
-Dale A. Brueggemann

"Though by no means a credo of orthodoxy, the idea that no longer a unmarried created being--even Lucifer himself--stands open air God's redemptive achieve has a heritage approximately so long as the Church itself. In 'Conditional Futurism' Goetz analyzes key biblical covenants and prophecies via this grid in an easy, easy presentation that implies the Church reconsider its place on postmortem conversions and end-time prophecy. All scholars of the Bible will locate Goetz's choice and therapy of biblical passages either stimulating and challenging."
