This Book is the finest written comprehensive analysis of the Second Advent. I have read nothing that surpasses it I came across this book by accident as I was searching for information about the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. With a group of friends who ran a Bible Study Group, we were studying the whole New Testament between the years 1970 to 1978. We became aware that the New Testament taught that Jesus was to come back for the Apostles and establish His heavenly Kingdom before that generation had all passed away. In our studies we always used an interlinear Bible which revealed this starling evidence. We had never heard of Preterism, that is that the Second Advent had occurred in AD 70 and this teaching came not from any books we had read but only from the Bible. During this time we became unhinged in our Biblical faith because it was the complete opposite of what we had been taught by other Christians. If it had occurred in AD 70, what were we all doing in this war torn world. I found this Book ‘The PAROUSIA’ in the archives of the main Manchester Library. The archives yield it from when it was first deposited in 1890. Only one person before me had requested it in 1964 until I requested it. This book answered a lot of our questions and generated a lot more. My friend at that time was Prof. F F Bruce the professor of the Bible at Manchester University. I managed at that time to photo copy the book and Prof. Bruce requested to read it. From 1978 to 1991 I worked to solve the problems for a watertight prophetic model that would harmonised all the loose ends that Prof Bruce drew to our attention Unfortunately he did not live to see the results of the Model. I have published the Model via my own Publications to be found at www.biblemaths.com Yes! the Bible contains Mathematical structures that cannot be undermined as the Hebrew text is fixed, the Greek text is fixed, the numeration is fixed and the Mathematics is rigorous.
