The End Times: What Catholics Believe about the Second Coming, the Rapture, Heaven, Hell, Purgatory, and Indulgences
: the eighth volume in the Beginning Apologetics series.
In this booklet we give the basic teachings of the Catholic Church on the end times, and we deal with some of the more common errors in this area. A correct understanding of the last things helps us live this life with great peace and hope. It also gives us a deeper appreciation of how much God loves us and how great a gift we have in being made in His image. Unlike some pagan religions that believe human history repeats itself endlessly with no ultimate purpose, we Christians believe that human history in this world is moving toward a climactic finale. This end will fully reveal the meaning of human history.
