PRLog - Nov. 19, 2012 - Energion Publications is pleased to announce the November 1, 2012 release of Dr. Edward W.H. Vick's new book, Eschatology: A Participatory Study Guide, a thorough investigation of the last days from a Biblical, theological and historical perspective. This is the first volume of the Participatory Study Series to deal with a doctrine rather than with a book of the Bible.

This is not your usual outline of someone's idea of what will happen at the end of the world. Instead, this study guide will lead readers through a systematic study of how one comes to understand this topic systematically and thoroughly from a biblical and theological perspective. Dr. Vick also interacts with Christian history and with major doctrinal statements of various confessions as well as the quest for the historical Jesus.

How is one to understand prophecy and apocalyptic? What does it mean when Jesus says that ‘this generation will not pass’? These questions receive a thorough treatment, not to provide you with all the answers, but instead to provide you with the tools to discover how you can find these answers.

Church small groups, classes, and individuals can all benefit from following this study.

Some advanced praise for Eschatology: A Participatory Study Guide:

In this scholarly and immensely practical work, Dr. Vick walks the participant through a complex theological history. He does so with great clarity and by using examples that will provide material for further study and discussion. His work succeeds at offering both a thorough academic background and a framework for deeper exploration. This work is a valuable contribution to the important and often overlooked field of Adult Christian Education. – Rev. Dr. Robert R. LaRochelle, United Church of Christ Pastor, Author, Crossing the Street, Part Time Pastor, Full Time Church, So Much Older Then (forthcoming)

Edward Vick has written a brief yet surprisingly detailed survey of the vast and complicated field of Christian eschatology. One of the greatest contributions that Vick makes is providing operational definitions for many difficult theological concepts, opening up the entire subject to lay and novice readers. In a time captivated by the ending of the Mayan calendar, upcoming catastrophes of cataclysmic proportions, placing the return of the Lord in our day planners, and reading newspaper headlines as Bible prophecy, this book provides a helpful corrective and foundation for a subject that has become untethered from the Bible, theology, and reality. – Rev. Dr. Geoffrey Lentz, United Methodist Pastor, Author, Learning and Living Scripture, The Gospel According to St. Luke: A Participatory Study Guide, A Living Psalter (editor)
