Why did Jesus say it was better for us if he went away?
What if Christ has already returned?
The Second Coming of Christ has been “coming soon” ever since 1850, when John Nelson Darby popularized his brand of end times dispensational rapture theology. Many Christians today are unaware that the version of biblical prophecy they’ve been taught is not what the Church believed for the first 1,800 years. It’s time to leave behind the “End Times” and discover an astounding truth—Christ has already returned and our participation is essential to making all things new.
Foreword by C. Baxter Kruger
"Giles takes the road less traveled, at least in these “modern” times, and he helps us see Jesus with us and in us, and us with and in him. This is eschatology at its best."
Jesus Unexpected is a challenging book that explores important questions like:
Why did predictions about the return of Christ only start after 1830?
Why didn’t the End Times Rapture doctrine gain popularity until 1850?
What if the Second Coming of Christ started 2,000 years ago and is still in motion today?
Why do New Testament authors claim they were in the “Last Days”?
When was the “Day of the Lord” and how did we miss it?
