I am usually hesitant to read a book where the author claims to have “new” truths about the Bible. As a Christian, I believe the Bible is the inspired word of God so I hate to see someone try to twist it to fit their own agenda. Thankfully that is not the case with this book. While the ideas contained in this book are certainly controversial, they do not (to my knowledge) contradict scripture. The author has done his research and presents his case very well while still leaving room for you to make up your own mind. In fact, he encourages you to do your own research which is something I found refreshing.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this book. That is not to say it is an easy read. I found it both fascinating and a little painful because it challenges some deeply held beliefs of mine. I think that is a good thing. I definitely want to do some more research about what I have learned. I do not think I can only look at these issues from one man’s perspective and instantly change what I believe. However, he has brought up many valid points that I can not reasonably dispute.
My favorite part of this book is the explanation of biblical prophecy. I have read several books about end times, but I feel like this one has given me a much better understanding of Revelation than the other books. Many prophetic explanations are little more than speculation. In this book, the author focuses on understanding the meaning behind the symbols given in Daniel and Revelation rather than the symbols themselves. For me, that is much more important.
I had some difficulty getting into the book in the beginning. The first 100 pages feels like an introduction. The author spends a lot of time explaining what he will talk about later on which slows down the pace. I also think the book could be organized better. It jumps around quite a bit and I often found myself wondering how certain parts tied into the book as a whole. I almost think it would be better separated into two different books.
My rating for Ready or not, Here HE Comes is 3 out of 4 stars. The content is certainly worth reading, especially for Christians. The only reason I am not giving it 4 stars is because of the organization issue. Aside from a typo or two, the book has been edited well. I just wish it was more clear and concise. However, I still highly recommend it to Christians who like to be challenged in their understanding of the Bible or who want to understand the book of Revelation better.
