That dream indicated the kingdoms that would occupy Daniel's homeland of Judah.

As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying,
"Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?"
And Jesus answered them, "Take heed that no one leads you astray.
For many will come in my name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and they will lead many astray.
And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars;
see that you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end is not yet."
—Jesus, Matthew 24:3-6 (The Olivet Discourse)

"It doesn't take long for a discussion of the end times to get kooky, hyper-complex, or both. If you're afraid to talk about the last days because you're afraid you'll wind up gazing at byzantine prophecy charts or listening to someone talk about how you ought to be storing up food and weapons, this book is for you. Timothy Paul Jones, one of the most brilliant scholars in the Christian world, takes the words of Jesus seriously, all of them, including the ones about the end. He takes them so seriously that he refuses to hide them under a bushel of scholarly jargon or of sensationalistic hype. Read and be blessed."
Russell D. Moore, Provost, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Kudos to Dr. Timothy Paul Jones - he has taken a difficult subject and presented it concisely, clearly, and colorfully. Jones's book offers the fruit of scholarship and research in such a way that both scholar and non-scholar alike can read and profit. He is eminently measured and fair in his presentation of the various views that Christians have held on prophecy and the future. I especially appreciate how Jones allows the reader to see representative views, on topic after topic, speak for themselves. Here is the book [Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecy] that I will want close at hand when I preach or teach biblical passages relating to the future."
Guy Prentiss Waters, Associate Professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, MS
"In the midst of eschatological debates and arguments, this book [Rose Guide to End Times Prophecy] provides a refreshingly fair and irenic approach to a difficult and sensitive topic. It will certainly help the reader understand the breadth of theological issues involved in discussing the end times. Most importantly, it places the reader's attention on the issue the Scriptures emphasizes: the glory of God and His faithfulness to His Word. Having this biblical perspective makes this book a must read for those in the church to rightly grasp the content and beauty of eschatology."
Dr. Abner Chou, The Master's College, Santa Clarita, CA
"It seems that the Christian interest in the end times will never end. Unfortunately, much confusion reigns within the various evangelical camps regarding what the other camps believe. If you are interested in really understanding the several evangelical approaches to the end times this study is a must! Dr. Jones knows his material well and presents it clearly. I highly commend Dr. Jones for his intelligent, fair, and practical presentation of the Four Views of the End Times."

A Professor tells why he is choosing Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecy as an Intro to Eschatology Textbook
"I was sent a copy of the book Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecy with the request to consider writing an endorsement for it. Quite frankly, I had no desire to do so, as I quit reading books on prophecy when I graduated from Bible College over 35 years ago. You see, while in college I backed up with Scripture, to my satisfaction, several contradictory views on how to interpret the book of Revelation. That resulted in me laying aside the whole area of end-time prophecy and saying I am going to focus instead on discipling nations, as commanded by Jesus. I figured, eschatology was obviously ambiguous, and to fight and argue over interpretations was unprofitable to the furthering of the administration of God, which is by faith (1 Tim. 1:4).
However, when I first glanced at this book, I was struck by the full color charts on almost every page. I love charts, as so much information can be communicated so clearly in such a small amount of space. They captured my eyes, were easy to read and laid out multiple views of eschatology side by side, without feeling a need to judge any of them. Instead they simply showed the key unique emphases of each interpretative view along with its scriptural basis.
As I began to read I really got excited. Timothy Paul Jones was not putting anyone down. He was not judging or condemning or insisting his view was right and everyone else was wrong. As a matter of fact, he was not even stating what his view was. He was simply, honestly and clearly presenting the four major views of Revelation in a clear, concise, orderly manner.
So then I asked myself, but why even care about these four different ways of interpreting the book of Revelation? And as I turned to the next page (page 72), the author asked the question, "Why does it matter?" obviously fully in tune with his reading audience (which is something I absolutely love about the book). Then he gives the best answer to that question I have ever heard. It is so we know and appreciate the historical positions the church has held on the book of Revelation, so we can be informed and so we can learn to respect and honor those who hold positions different from ours. Well this is refreshing, and as God has been telling me that I need to honor all people. In my early Christian life, I was trained to judge and put down everyone who held a view different than mine, so I destroyed the unity of the body of Christ, because of my theological beliefs on things which were not essential to the message of salvation by faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
This is an outstanding book, which clearly and simply lays out four differing views of end-time prophecy, providing scriptural support for each, showing the unique approaches each view takes, and encouraging you to understand and not judge those who disagree with you. Finally we can honor and love all people (1 Pet. 2:17) as we consider various views of interpreting end time prophecy. What a gift to the body of Christ. Thank you Timothy Paul Jones!
Now I want to read other books Dr. Timothy Paul Jones has written, plus I want to sell your book off our website, and add it as the first and only course on eschatology our university has ever offered."
Dr. Mark Virkler, Founder and President of Christian Leadership University
Why Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecies is a Staff Favorite
"I like the Rose Guide to End Times Prophecy because it levels the playing field. It shows options of how to interpret prophecies in the Bible rather than saying, 'This is the only way Christians believe.' It has a balanced approach, which is better for small group study. It just lays out the facts of how Christians over the centuries have understood these passages."
—Glen, Customer Service Manager
"Stunning art and fantastic side-by-side comparison charts. The explanations and diagrams in this book make the Bible passages clear. Some end-times prophecies in the Bible were a mystery even to the biblical writers. No wonder people have varying interpretations today. It's good to survey what Bible scholars think about each Bible verse, rather than having just one viewpoint pushed on you."
—Gene, Operations Manager
"This book does an amazing job in clarifying and comparing the different Christian views. It's very insightful and highly visually appealing."
—Sergio, Design Director
"Rose Guide to End Times Prophecy gave me choices. It showed the different ways of understanding the Book of Daniel and Revelation. And it helped me know what each viewpoint really teaches. A lot of people know only one part of a view, but they don't understand all the rest of the beliefs that go along with that view."

A Good Antidote to Rampant End Times Speculations
The Rose Guide to the End Times by Dr. Timothy Paul Jones is visually inviting, easy to follow and comprehensive.
Studying the End Times (Eschatology) can be very confusing. This book is a detailed study, which is a good fit for an individual, Bible study class or group and even as part of the curriculum for a college course.
I was pleased to see the author starts the first 5 chapters focusing on ‘What matters most when it comes to the end of the world.’ Unlike many books on the market today the author does not seem to have a pet position to further. He lays things out so that you may understand what is Biblical and how others in the church see things.
The sections on the Old and New Testaments put things wonderfully in Biblical perspective. The last section is enlightening as it lays out each of the 4 major views of the End Times in the Church today. This is helpful when hearing or reading about the End Times.

In my opinion the author does an excellent job in this book of explaining Bible prophecy in a clear and easy to understand format, yet at the same time also manages to cover the various aspects and differing views of prophetic subject matter, such as rapture timing. This is a good book to read individually and may also be useful as an additional resource for group Bible study. I would definitely recommend sharing it with others.

Review by: Pastor Hal Seed, Author and founding Pastor, New Song Community Church, New Song Community Church - August 4, 2011
For decades, Christians have taken one side or another in the interpretation of the Bible’s future events. I like the “different views” approach because it allows believers to think and decide for themselves. Timothy’s work avoids speculative extremes and helps us understand end-times prophecy from start to finish. I love the charts, diagrams and pictures!

Review by: Jerry Newcombe, D.Min., Author of COMING AGAIN, Sr. Producer of Truth in Action Ministries, (formerly Coral Ridge Ministries) - September 14, 2011
Dr. Timothy Paul Jones is a wonderful scholar of the New Testament. When my younger brother made a film about the history of the Church for the Lausanne Committee (Capetown 2010), Dr. Jones was one of only two or three scholars that helped my brother with critical background information. His new book on the end-times is an excellent resource to guide through the maze of conflicting opinions on a difficult subject, where there is genuine disagreement among well-meaning and well-learned scholars.
Review by: Pastor Gino Geraci, Law Enforcement Chaplain, Calvary Chapel South Denver, Salem Media Talk Show Host - October 4, 2011
Simple. Helpful. Biblical. What’s not to love? Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecy provides the reader with a way to think about the end-times with hope rather than the end-times in confusion.
Dr. Timothy Paul Jones avoids egg-head explanations but retains a rich respect for the differences in the four main camps of end-time apologists. The book incorporates a simple and understandable guide to the main views of Amillennialism, Postmillennialism, Premillennialism and Historical Premillennialism. This careful scholar avoids cartoon caricatures of the different views but gives helpful summaries of ways of interpreting the Bible and all four views of the end times. Dr. Timothy Paul Jones gives the reader a helpful way of understanding the differences and why those differences persist.
The good Doctor takes his own advice; he refuses to slip into unwarranted speculation or slip into shoulder-shrugging cynicism. He knows the reason. The future matters.
Review by: Darrell J. Ahrens, BA Chapman U., MSBA Boston U., MDiv Fuller - November 23, 2011
This [Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecy ] is one of the best books I have read on the subject. It gives a thorough, clear, and concise explanation of the various interpretations of passages dealing with end-times prophecies in both Old and New Testaments, and specifically in the books of Daniel and Revelation. [Rose Guide to End-Times Prophecy] deals with these passages on the basis of scriptural , historical, and scholarly integrity, and does not indulge in wild speculation common in so many books dealing with the end times. The illustrations, pictures, and diagrams are attractive and highly informative and expertly serve to clarify and summarize the narrative.
The book is true to the biblical exhortation, "For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears," 1Cor. 13:9-10. The authors make it clear that their objective is not to focus primarily on times, dates, or events, but to focus on Jesus, who is the source of God's creation, the source of God's redemption for His creation and humankind, the focus of God's revelation, and the goal of God's plan in all of history, including the end times which will bring history to its conclusion. Altogether, the book is a highly invaluable resource to anyone seeking a greater understanding of end-times prophecies.
