New Book Explains the Decline of the Church in the 21st Century and Gives Encouragement about the Future
Los Angeles, June 7, 2014
“The Church in Prophecy and History” is a detailed commentary on the Book of Revelation, Chapters 1 through 3. It illuminates Jesus’s own predictions about the future of His church, and explains how the major events of church history fulfilled His prophecies.
The book traces the amazing progress and the failures of the church during its two thousand year history, and emphasizes the promise of ultimate victory for the institution itself and for the faithful “overcomers” of each of the seven periods of church history.
It focuses on the current state of Christianity—how it arrived at its present weakened condition just before the beginning of the end times, and why it still has a victorious future. It issues a call to return to the simple and powerful message of the Bible and envisions a fresh effort to reach those in the younger generations who have not experienced the life-changing power of the Gospel.
The author is Ron Graff, publisher of the “Prophecy Central” website, which has been a favorite Bible study destination since its inception 17 years ago. A Google search for “Bible prophecy” consistently lists the site on the first page of its results.
Graff was a pastor until he retired in 2011 after the privilege of 50 years in that role. He now devotes his time to publishing the Prophecy Central website, organizing Bible conferences, writing and speaking. He is available for interviews about the book’s message of warning and hope for the modern church.
Earlier books by Graff include “Connecting the Dots: A Handbook of Bible Prophecy” (with Lambert Dolphin), and “2012: The Year the World Didn’t End.”
”The Church in Prophecy and History” is available in bookstores and at Amazon.com and other online booksellers. For more information visit the book’s product page at http://www.Bible-prophecy.com/revelation/v1
