This is a book about an evil age.

Specifically, it is about “the present evil age” that we live in right now. For many Christians, the expression “these last days” refers to the time right before the second coming of Christ—but according to the apostles, the last days started with the first coming of Christ and continue even today.

How do we biblically understand our time as the final age of world history? What does this mean for our faith?

Reformed Christians have often avoided the field of eschatology—but it was this doctrine of history that thrilled the first disciples. They realized that with the coming of the “last days” they had entered the time of the kingdom, and this understanding will strengthen our faith too.

Here the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology addresses this important topic and presents the following speakers’ insights on:  

  • Sinclair Ferguson—The Christ of History
  • D. A. CarsonThis Present Evil Age
  • Alistair BeggThe Age of the Spirit
  • Michael S. HortonThe Resurrection Hope
  • J. Ligon Duncan IIIThe Eternal Glory
  • D. A. CarsonPartakers of the Age to Come
  • Cornelis P. VenemaThe Four Main Millennial Views
  • Richard D. PhillipsA Pastoral Guide to Life After Death
  • Jeffrey K. JueEvangelical Eschatology, American Style
  • Paul David TrippThe Radical Implications of Eternity

Together some of the most gifted communicators of God’s Word explain the Christian’s view on life, death, and the hereafter.
