Staff comments "I like the Rose Guide to End Times Prophecy because it levels the playing field. It shows options of how to interpret prophecies in the Bible rather than saying, "This is the only way Christians believe." It has a balanced approach, which is better for small group study. It just lays out the facts of how Christians over the centuries have understood these passages." - Glen, Customer Service Manager "Stunning art and fantastic side-by-side comparison charts. The explanations and diagrams in this book make the Bible passages clear. Some end-times prophecies in the Bible were a mystery even to the biblical writers. No wonder people have varying interpretations today. It's good to survey what Bible scholars think about each Bible verse, rather than having just one viewpoint pushed on you." - Gene, Operations Manager "This book does an amazing job in clarifying and comparing the different Christian views. It's very insightful and highly visually appealing." - Sergio, Design Director "Rose Guide to End Times Prophecy gave me choices. It showed the different ways of understanding the Book of Daniel and Revelation. And it helped me know what each viewpoint really teaches. A lot of people know only one part of a view, but they don't understand all the rest of the beliefs that go along with that view." - Gretchen, Publisher Endorsements from Seminary and Bible College Professors In the midst of eschatological debates and arguments, this book [Rose Guide to End Times Prophecy] provides a refreshingly fair and irenic approach to a difficult and sensitive topic. It will certainly help the reader understand the breadth of theological issues involved in discussing the end times. Most importantly, it places the reader's attention on the issue the Scriptures emphasizes: the glory of God and His faithfulness to His Word. Having this biblical perspective makes this book a must read for those in the church to rightly grasp the content and beauty of eschatology. Dr. Abner Chou, The Master's College, Santa Clarita, CA It doesn't take long for a discussion of the end times to get kooky, hyper-complex, or both. If you're afraid to talk about the last days because you're afraid you'll wind up gazing at byzantine prophecy charts or listening to someone talk about how you ought to be storing up food and weapons, this book is for you. Timothy Paul Jones, one of the most brilliant scholars in the Christian world, takes the words of Jesus seriously, all of them, including the ones about the end. He takes them so seriously that he refuses to hide them under a bushel of scholarly jargon or of sensationalistic hype. Read and be blessed. Russell D. Moore, Provost, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Kudos to Dr. Timothy Paul Jones – he has taken a difficult subject and presented it concisely, clearly, and colorfully. Jones’s book offers the fruit of scholarship and research in such a way that both scholar and non-scholar alike can read and profit. He is eminently measured and fair in his presentation of the various views that Christians have held on prophecy and the future. I especially appreciate how Jones allows the reader to see representative views, on topic after topic, speak for themselves. Here is the book [Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecy] that I will want close at hand when I preach or teach biblical passages relating to the future. Guy Prentiss Waters, Associate Professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, MS It seems that the Christian interest in the end times will never end. Unfortunately, much confusion reigns within the various evangelical camps regarding what the other camps believe. If you are interested in really understanding the several evangelical approaches to the end times this study is a must! Dr. Jones knows his material well and presents it clearly. I highly commend Dr. Jones for his intelligent, fair, and practical presentation of theFour Views of the End Times. Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr., Th.D. Author, He Shall Have Dominion and Before Jerusalem Fell A Professor tells why he is choosing Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecy I was sent a copy of the book Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecy with the request to consider writing an endorsement for it. Quite frankly, I had no desire to do so, as I quit reading books on prophecy when I graduated from Bible College over 35 years ago. You see, while in college I backed up with Scripture, to my satisfaction, several contradictory views on how to interpret the book of Revelation. That resulted in me laying aside the whole area of end-time prophecy and saying I am going to focus instead on discipling nations, as commanded by Jesus. I figured, eschatology was obviously ambiguous, and to fight and argue over interpretations was unprofitable to the furthering of the administration of God, which is by faith (1 Tim. 1:4). However, when I first glanced at this book, I was struck by the full color charts on almost every page. I love charts, as so much information can be communicated so clearly in such a small amount of space. They captured my eyes, were easy to read and laid out multiple views of eschatology side by side, without feeling a need to judge any of them. Instead they simply showed the key unique emphases of each interpretative view along with its scriptural basis. As I began to read I really got excited. Timothy Paul Jones was not putting anyone down. He was not judging or condemning or insisting his view was right and everyone else was wrong. As a matter of fact, he was not even stating what his view was. He was simply, honestly and clearly presenting the four major views of Revelation in a clear, concise, orderly manner. So then I asked myself, but why even care about these four different ways of interpreting the book of Revelation? And as I turned to the next page (page 72), the author asked the question, "Why does it matter?" obviously fully in tune with his reading audience (which is something I absolutely love about the book). Then he gives the best answer to that question I have ever heard. It is so we know and appreciate the historical positions the church has held on the book of Revelation, so we can be informed and so we can learn to respect and honor those who hold positions different from ours. Well this is refreshing, and as God has been telling me that I need to honor all people. In my early Christian life, I was trained to judge and put down everyone who held a view different than mine, so I destroyed the unity of the body of Christ, because of my theological beliefs on things which were not essential to the message of salvation by faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This is an outstanding book, which clearly and simply lays out four differing views of end-time prophecy, providing scriptural support for each, showing the unique approaches each view takes, and encouraging you to understand and not judge those who disagree with you. Finally we can honor and love all people (1 Pet. 2:17) as we consider various views of interpreting end time prophecy. What a gift to the body of Christ. Thank you Timothy Paul Jones! Now I want to read other books Dr. Timothy Paul Jones has written, plus I want to sell your book off our website, and add it as the first and only course on eschatology our university has ever offered.

What Others are Saying About God and Money "This is one of the most thoughtful and well researched books on giving that I have had the pleasure of reading. The frameworks presented in the book can be used by people at all stages of experiencing the joy of generosity." —Waters Davis, President of National Christian Foundation Houston. "With uncommon transparency, John and Greg provide a Gospel-centered and practical perspective on wealth. Through a leveling critique of comfortable Christianity, they challenge us to wholeheartedly pursue the joy of generosity. Read this book and you will be inspired, convicted and thinking differently about using what God has given you for Kingdom impact." —Peter Greer, President & CEO of HOPE International and coauthor of Mission Drift "In God and Money, Baumer and Cortines challenge Christian readers to consider afresh what generosity looks like in light of the Scripture's radical teaching and the day of affluence in which we live. Whether or not you agree with all their conclusions or personal practices, you will be challenged and inspired." —Robert L. Plummer, Ph.D., Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary "I greatly enjoyed reading God and Money! God used the framework Greg and John described to challenge my perspective and practice of generosity. I realized in reading their book that my personal bias is more saver and spender than servant. What I truly desire to be is a fully surrendered servant of Jesus. This book gave me practical frameworks to move in that direction." —Todd Harper, President, Generous Giving "The mission of Harvard Business School is "to educate leaders who make a difference in the world," and in John and Greg that mission has been fulfilled abundantly. It has been my privilege to be their teacher, their colleague and now their friend; and I wish them Godspeed as they take the transformative message found in God and Money out to their community and to the world beyond. I have learned to expect great things from them, and they have yet to disappoint." —Derek van Bever, Senior Lecturer in Business Administration; Director, Forum for Growth and Innovation, Harvard Business School Preview God and Money Table of Contents Part I: Foundations Chapter 1: Wealth and Giving in the Bible Chapter 2: Seven Core Principles for Biblical Wealth and Giving Chapter 3: Motivations for Giving Chapter 4: Trends and Movements in Generosity Part II: Frameworks Chapter 5: The "Three S's Framework:" Spender, Saver, or Servant?
