A Rabbi Looks at the Last Days review

What if everything you know about the end times is wrong?  Few topics captivate our minds, or fill our hearts with fear, like the end times.  Books and sermons on the book of Revelation are plentiful  Yet uncertainty and misunderstanding continue to abound.

Now, with a perspective that is both startling and hopeful, Jonathan Bernis unpacks the mysteries of this cryptic time.  This prominent Messianic rabbi reveals how biblical prophecies are being fulfilled right now - and what this means for you.


This was a very interesting book to read.  I have always loved to read about Jewish history, and this book includes a lot of that.  It was nice to read about how he became a Messianic rabbi, and the passion that he has to share with other Jewish people the love of Jesus.

I have to say that I'm not sure I am the target audience for this book.  It seems like it was written more for the Jewish people.  That is not to say that it wasn't highly enlightening, it was.  The way that he describes Satan's warped idea that he can still win in the end was something I hadn't really thought much about.  And to learn about specific Jewish culture and ideas was also extremely interesting.  But, it seemed that he was focusing more on the Jewish people that do not believe Jesus is the Messiah.

Overall it was a very intriguing book, although it did take me a while to read through it.  I think that reading about prophecy and the end times really requires a specific mood in order to delve deeper.  I definitely recommend this book if you enjoy Jewish history, or if you have a real passion for learning more about the end times and prophecy in general.

I received a copy of this book from Chosen in return for my honest review, the opinions are my own.
