Book Review: The Future of Everything by William Boekestein

vtd0plnEnd times is such a sticky topic that leaves people ignoring it. And Christians are giving it a bad name through books. Books are notorious in that it they present the last things as a conspiratorial that brings paranoia to people or a dry academic one that no one wants to read.

The Future of Everything brings out the true purpose of end times by providing a very practical and personal approach on this sticky topic. Like evidential apologetics books, I also skip these kinds of books because for me it will consume my reading time, I find it boring and go into a never ending debate over the millennium. The Future of Everything is not that kind of book (thankfully). This book will reinforce your need study the last things, examine yourself in light of eternity and ignites a zeal to work for the coming Kingdom now.

I’m completely sold out with the personal eschatology section. This is my favorite part of this great book. Boekestein placed it in the early part of the book which I’m glad he did. It’s like taking the reader to look at the microscopic view first then on the next section, Boekestein lets the reader peek at a telescope to see the big picture of  the end times.

Death and dying in an eschatology book are rare but in this book the author did  something penetrating to the reader. For me this is the highlight of this section that really get readers come to terms on how the end times and their personal end times (death) intersect.

Part 3 is where the general presents the discussion about the millennium and Christ return. This is the primer part of the book. The Future of Everything is more than a primer it an action book that will drive you to toil for the Kingdom while there is time (Part 4 discusses that).

William Boekestein did an outstanding job in every section of this book. I’m very satisfied with what he want to deliver in this book. Highly recommended!

My verdict:

5 out of 5
