Description from the publisher:

The complete text of the chapter examining Islamic and Christian beliefs about the end of the world and the Second Coming of Christ, from The New Testament Era: An Islamic Perspective. Recent events have given new impetus to the more extreme interpretations of the eschatological texts of the Bible, especially Revelation. The meaning and implications of these are discussed here. Many Muslims feel that the Christian movements espousing such beliefs have targeted them as obstacles to be removed in order for Christ to return in glory. In this situation, it is important for Muslims to understand the ancient Biblical and religious roots of these extreme beliefs, their consequences for the prospects of peace in the contemporary world, and their potential impact upon the Islamic world.

For Christians, Armageddon has come to symbolize the end of the world and the triumphant return of Christ. In this work the author examines the implications of such beliefs for modern Muslims. Starting from the Bible, the Quran, and such 12th century CE Commentary of Surabadi (the oldest complete Persian Quranic commentary extant), he traces the development of these ideas in Christian evangelism and explains how they contribute to and exacerbate the present atmosphere of crisis and confrontation in the Middle East that threatens the peace and security of not the Islamic world, but all of mankind.
