This is the last of a three volume series on great doctrines, which deals with doctrines of the church and eschatology, there are 23 chapters each of which covers a lecture.
On doctrines of the church he deals with the following topics: the Church, the marks and government of the church, the sacraments, baptism, and the Lord's Supper.
On eschatology he deals with a wide range of subjects:
Death and immortality
Conditional immortality or a second chance?
The Second Coming - a general introduction.
The time of his coming - the signs.
God's plan for the Jews
The interpretation of Dan 9:24-27
Daniel 9 concluded and the secret rapture
The book of Revelation - introduction
The preterist and futurist views
The spiritual historicist view
The suffering and safety of the redeemed
The final judgement
The premillennial view
Post-millennialism and the spiritual view
The resurrection of the body
The final destiny.
This book would suite someone who is already familiar with the doctors writing or someone who has a special interest in eschatology, especially in Revelation, which has eight of the twenty-three chapters devoted to it. In many of the chapters on eschatology he is dealing with sensitive and controversial issues and I found it interesting and intriguing to read the doctor's views on these matters when he wrote in the 1950's. I would suggest that his careful interpretation of these difficult scriptures is well worth reading in our more sensationalist times today.
