You'll get a good idea what's in the book, "Then Comes the End," just by perusing the Table of Contents. Here it is. I think you'll agree it covers a lot of territory. In fact, just about anyone will gain valuable truths to help ground them in the fundamentals of the Christian faith by studying through it. It's inspirational too, and I share some of my own struggles along the way. This book will help if you come to it with a humble heart and a determination to know God's plan for the ages...and His plan for you, too.
