The flow of this literature will continue to grow with the approaching of the ominous year 2000 and with the ever increasing threats to human survival. Regrettably, much of this apocalyptic literature treats Biblical End-time prophecies with either skepticism or sensationalism. The result is that many ordinary Christians are either abandoning hope in the Return of Christ or becoming excessively preoccupied with the spying out the imminent events which are supposed to bring about Armageddon. In The Advent Hope for Human Hopelessness Dr. Samuele Bacchiocchi endeavors to meat the dual challenge of skepticism and sensationalism by presenting a balanced Biblical analysis of many vital topics related to the Second Advent. Some on the significant questions are: How did the hope in the Coming of the Lord originate and develop in Biblical history? What is the nature and function of the Advent signs? Which Advent signs are finding an unprecedented fulfillment in our times? Can the 1984 establishment of the modern State of Israel be legitimately viewed as a major Advent sign of our times? Does a judgment process proceed and follow the final judgement executed by Christ at His Coming? Will the redeemed receive heterosexual or unisex bodies at the resurrection or translation? What does it mean to be an Adventist Christian who looks forward to the soon-Coming of the Lord? : These and many other significant questions are examined with sound Biblical scholarship and in a clear, simple style which ordinary people can understand. The Advent Hope for Human Hopelessness is an important book for the critical time in which we live. It will teach you how to live in the joyful anticipation of Christ's Return. It will help you, who are called to live among the uncertainties and trouble of this present world, to find meaning, courage and hope. in the assurance of the soon-Coming Savior
