At last we have a new work from the pen of Dennis Engleman, and it has been worth the wait. "A Rumor of War" will prove invaluable not only to former Protestants and those Orthodox coming into missionary contact with Protestants, but it will both inform and fascinate the general Orthodox reader. Thoroughly based on the writings of the Fathers, Mr.Engleman shows once again a sensitivity to the patristic worldview that is too rarely seen today. --Fr. Alexey Young
Christ's Millennial Reign and the Rapture of His Church
By Dennis Eugene Engleman.
Regina Orthodox Press has just published a very timely book, A Rumor of War:
Christ's Millennial Reign and the Rapture of His Church. In the light of the
terrorist attacks on America of September 11 many confused Christians,
including many Orthodox have been listening to the teachings of certain
Protestant preachers and televangelists on the so-called end-times. However
the teaching of the Orthodox Church on these matters differs significantly
from the beliefs of many Protestant sects whether "evangelical,"
"fundamentalist" or "Charismatic."
A Rumor of War: Christ's Millennial Reign and the Rapture of His Church
offers a comprehensive study of the Holy Orthodox Tradition, the teachings of
the Fathers and sound Orthodox biblical interpretation on the issues
surrounding the "end of days" and the return of Christ. Orthodox will welcome
this sane and biblically grounded book as an alternative to a great deal of
bad teaching that is flooding the world in these troubling times. All
Christians will find comfort and reassurance in this timely book. (Perfect
for church study groups and Sunday school, ages 15 and up!)
A Rumor of War: Christ's Millennial Reign and the Rapture of His Church is
the most exhaustive and comprehensive Eastern Orthodox study available of the
ageless teachings of Jesus Christ; the Apostles and the Fathers of the Church
on this highly controversial subject. The author clearly contrasts authentic
Biblical and Patristic testimony with the unscriptural views common in modern
Pre-millennialism, and shows why the "PreTrib" Protestant perspective is not
only heretical but a dangerous and soul-threatening deception. This book is
a must for those who have been confused or carried away by the hysteria of
"Left Behind" teaching put forth by many televangelists and pastors of
Protestant churches. A Rumor of War offers solid tools for understanding
both what will and what will not happen before Jesus Christ returns.
