Book Review: The Coming Apostasy


The Coming Apostasy

Exposing the Sabotage of Christianity from Within
by Mark Hitchcock; Jeff Kinley

Tyndale House Publishers

Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
Christian

Pub Date 07 Mar 2017

I am voluntarily reviewing The Coming Apostasy through the publisher and Netgalley:

The authors point out Sound Doctrine is under siege.  The authors use the Mystery of The Mary Celeste a ship that in 1872 was headed to Genoa Italy, but when they were long overdue the ship was discovered with no signs of life, nearly a century and a half later the mystery of what happened on the Mary Celeste remains just that, a mystery.  The book reminds us that we are adrift like The Mary Celeste.

The book points out that prophecy points out that Russia is poised to be an end times player.  The book reminds us too that entire Dominations are on the verge of sinking.  But if we hold on to the (anchor) Christ we will not sink.

We are warned too of the great falling away during the last days, many who were once believers will fall away from that faith.

I give The Coming Apostasy five out of five stars.

Happy Reading
