The Living End. By Charles Caldwell Ryrie. Old Tappan, NJ: Fleming H. Revell Co., 1976. 129 pp. $4.95.
Written in popular style, this survey of events on today’s prophetic horizon deals with key prophetic passages in the Bible and precipitates them into a meaningful pattern of impending events with shadows now failing on the international landscape. The volume centers on the events of the tribulation period but concludes regarding the millennial reign of Christ that “The Best Is Yet to Come.” The closing page of evangelistic appeal reflects the evangelistic use which can readily be made of this volume. Readers will want to buy two copies of the book and give one to a non-Christian friend.

Go Free! by Robert M. Horn. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 1976. 128 pp. Paper, $2.25.

The major contributors to the guide are all Baptists from England. The basically evangelical approach and practical value of the book is commendable. However, in eschatology it is amillennial (by practice if
