When someone mentions the “end times,” what comes to mind? Does it make you anxious, or perhaps tempt you to sit back and idly wait? Eschatology refers to the end, but really, it ought to come first. Our understanding of how things end positions us in God’s timeline and orients us toward the ultimate goal of our salvation. In this episode of White Horse Inn, hosts Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and Walter Strickland dive into the theological history of eschatology, how we should be practicing it, and why it’s vital.
