Front Cover
Pacific Press Publishing Association, 1911 - Bible - 718 pages
This volume presents the most wonderful and intensely interesting history that has ever been written of the great confilct between Christianity and the Powers of Darkness. The period of history covered is one of the deepest interest to all classes of readers. Beginning with our Lord's great prophecy given while viewing Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, in which He outlines the history of the whole dispensation, it sketches the fulfillment. It calls our attention to the bitter persecutions of the Christians in the first centuries, and notes the rise and growth of the Papacy. Considerable space is given to the life, work, and infuence of later reformers and great religious leaders, and this is followed by chapters treating upon The Orgin of Evil, The Agency of Evil Spirits, The Snares of Satan, and the Judgment. The closing chapters give a vivid picture of the warfare of the church, her final redemption, and vividly describe the triumph of the people of God, the destruction of Satan and all his followers, and the renewing of the earth, which ends the awful controversy between the Son og God and the Powers of Darkness. - 1.
