This book focuses on how all Christians should relate to the current worldwide emphasis on the end of the world, and it reviews the various conflicting voices within Christianity describing how and when the end will come, including Noah's experiences before the Flood, Jesus' description of people ready for His return, and the practical questions Seventh-day Adventists the world over today are now discussing.
