Product DescriptionArmageddon. The end of the world. The Second Coming of Christ. Among the most compelling gospel topics is that of the last days and the multitude of events surrounding this crucial period of time. A wealth of gospel literature has addressed the subject, but the question still remains: How can we spiritually prepare ourselves to navigate life in the last days without becoming encumbered by the myth and speculation that often accompany end-of-the-world discussion?
Craig James Ostler, professor of Church History and Doctrine at BYU, addresses the answers to this and other questions in his treatment of one of the most profound and perplexing doctrines of the Church. In this insightful book, Dr. Ostler takes a straightforward approach in his examination of the great joy and anticipation-as well as the challenges-that accompany the last days and the Second Coming of Christ. Citing scripture and prophetic counsel, Refuge from the Storm explores the historical and modern fulfillment of prophecy and signs of the times and suggests ways to prepare and thrive spiritually in the midst of wickedness.
