It is a disquieting fact that our lives will come to an end. What can cause even more uneasiness is the question of what happens next. Yet God does not abandon us to abstract speculations or anxious suspense. Rather, God’s message includes clarity and urgency regarding what happens after an individual’s death as well as after the end of history itself. In The End, Gary Johnson explores what the Bible teaches about Jesus’ Second Coming, the resurrection of the dead, the final judgment, eternal punishment, and the new heaven and new earth. The book ends with a practical chapter on how we can help others prepare for the end.

Gary Johnson presents a clear and concise understanding of significant issues concerning the consummation of the age.
