The Day of Yahweh by Albert James Dager

One more book in the "End Times" shelf to cause anyone distress.

Dager takes pretty much every viewpoint to task in their errors. Preterists aren't safe and Left Behinders are most definitely in for a rude read. He takes a very literal interpretation of Scripture. His basic premise is: God used those words to describe something and that's exactly what's going to happen. He laughs off ideas of metaphor and apocalyptic literature as nonsense.

Right off the bat, people may be ill-at-ease with this book as Dager accuses all types of science as the downfall of man. He claims we should have left our intellect in Eden and never tried to reason things out. The Tower of Babel is simply the first of many scientific and technological events that have caused us to drive further from God: while advances in the medical field have cured many diseases, just think of all the new, more potent viruses that are the result of science...This is his argument.

There is a lot of information to glean from this book. It could be easy to have your eyes gloss over unless you considered yourself a student of Eschatology. But then, why else would your read this?

The second half of this book is a verse-by-verse explanation of the Book of Revelation. If you were upset with Dager up to this section, he'll get your blood boiling by the end of this part.

When everything is said and done, Dager drops the big bombshell: Christians should leave their church. He believes the local church is heavily influenced by Satan and is apostate. Just as the disciples used the synagogue to promote their faith in Jesus and then left, Dager pushes the idea of getting out of the church.

I'm sure this book would be a big hit for those Christians who love to dump on the church. They will read this last section and scream in victory. Sadly, I don't agree whatsoever.

I found myself shaking my head in disbelief through most of this book. If nothing else, perhaps you will be driven to read Scripture as a result of this book.
