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:  

     The Christ of History — Sinclair Ferguson
     This Present Evil Age — D. A. Carson
     The Age of the Spirit — Alistair Begg
     The Resurrection Hope — Michael S. Horton
     The Eternal Glory — Ligon Duncan
     Partakers of the Age to Come — D. A. Carson
     The Four Main Millennial Views — Cornelis P. Venema
     A Pastoral Guide to Life After Death — Richard D. Phillips
     Evangelical Eschatology, American Style — Jeffrey K. Jue
     The Radical Implications of Eternity — Paul David Tripp

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