"Living for Christ in the End Times" by Dr. David Reagan--a book review

Hope and enduring the immoral society in which we live are the themes for Christians throughout Dr. David Reagan's book "Living for Christ in the End Times." In a straight-forward manner, Dr. Reagan exposes apostasy within secular society and within the Church itself, naming names and specific denominations that denounce the deity of Christ and who spiritualize Scripture to fit their needs.

Where does the hope fit in for Christians who need to live, work, and raise children in a society that does not fear God? Our hope lies in Jesus and the knowledge that He wins in the end. While Dr. Reagan exposes the national arrogance of this country and the impending, deserved judgement that awaits, he quotes Isaiah 43 : 2-3 which reads :

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they will not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be
scorched, Nor will the flame burn you. For I am
the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, Your Savior.

Our hope lies in the fact that our God is sovereign. If we hold him in reverence and awe and fear Him, we will keep the commands He has provided for us in love and we will walk in His ways.

Dr. Reagan urges Christians to keep an eternal perspective while we live our lives in a society that is increasingly intolerable to Christians. If we keep our eye on the eternal prize, it will make enduring this world much more tolerable.

This is a wonderful handbook for living a Christian life in the end times.
