The End of All Things is at Hand

February 6th – May 7th, 2024

Every Tuesday evening at 7:00pm on Zoom

Are you troubled by the uncertainty of world events? Do you anticipate the future with fear or faith? Do you yearn for the coming of the Lord? If so, this is the book for you. It is one of the most inspiring books on Bible prophecy you will ever read.

Richard Booker avoids the sensational and writes to touch your heart. He explains biblical prophecy and current and future events from a biblical, Hebraic world view rather than a traditional, Western cultural world view.

Therefore, this is not just another Western “systematic theology” book about the end times. The End of All Things Is At Hand—Are You Ready? is prophetic in its explanations, tone, and urgency. The author explains prophetic events and provides instructions on how to prepare for “the end of all things” and how to serve God in the end times.

As you read, you will learn about the following critical subjects:

  • Israel in prophecy
  • Ten signs of the coming of the Lord
  • The Arabs in prophecy
  • America in prophecy
  • The Church in prophecy
  • The nations in prophecy

Many other vital topics are addressed, as well. You are about to discover that this book is a “watchman’s call” and a spiritual manual for holy living in our changing world.
