What if commonly held beliefs concerning the Antichrist are mistaken? The Antichrist and the Second Coming ($24.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-037-1; $36.99, hardcover, 978-1-61579-038-8), by author Duncan W. McKenzie, Ph.D., looks at the Antichrist and the second coming of Christ from a preterist perspective and provides a unified interpretation of the scriptures related to Antichrist (i.e., the little horn, the prince to come, the king of the North, and the man of lawlessness). McKenzie presents the eye-opening revelation that the Antichrist was ultimately a spiritual ruler from the abyss that worked through Titus in his three-and-a-half year destruction of the Jewish nation but was destroyed by the second coming of Jesus in AD 70. Readers will see how McKenzie convincingly makes the biblical case for this fascinating and controversial position.
Says the Los Angeles-based author, "(I hope to give readers) a balanced scriptural perspective on the Antichrist and a new perspective on the timing and nature of the second coming. The second coming was not a physical event; it was a spiritual event. When John is shown the second coming (in Revelation), he is being given a glimpse into the heavenly realm. Revelation says that the time for the fulfillment of its prophecies was near in the first century."
A licensed psychologist, McKenzie has been studying prophecy for the last 25 years. While he was raised on the popular prophecy teachers of the '70s and '80s, he says his studies since that time have taken him in a very different direction, and he hopes this book--and the forthcoming second volume--will help illuminate the actual meaning of the Scriptures.
