Investigate biblical prophecy with Anglican minister and Cambridge scholar Thomas Rawson Birks. In these classic volumes you’ll find Birks’ insights and exposition on the prophecies found in Isaiah, Daniel, and Revelation.
Not one to shy away from controversial topics, Birks wrote and studied extensively on biblical prophecy and the Apocalypse. Of prophecies he writes, “they serve to link into harmonious union the precepts of the Law and the promises of the gospel. They give a freedom and dignity to the obedience of the Christian, by admitting him to a glimpse of the counsels of the most high, and raising him to the high honor of being a fellow-worker with God. They shield the grace of the gospel from licentious abuse, by exhibiting the severest warnings of judgment to those who corrupt and pervert its sacred privileges.”
Now you can explore the complex world of biblical prophecy with Birks’ writings, and acquaint yourself with nineteenth-century Apocalypse studies. Gain perspective as Birks addresses the writing of many of his contemporaries, and puts forth his own ideas on these sensitive subjects. Included are his historical expositions of the four kingdoms and later visions of Daniel, commentary and a revised translation of Isaiah, and discussion of the prophecy of Revelation. Birks also speaks into some challenging aspects of Christian belief—discussing controversial points within creation, the fall, redemption, and judgment.
