This edition of The Second Coming of Christ includes the charts for which the author was famous, together with his other original illustrations.
A devotional classic of the early 20th century, this book contains Larkin's investigations of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Based on his studies, Larkin concluded that the Second Coming was impending and that the events in Christianity hitherto - including the First Coming of Christ in Israel - happened in preparation for this great event.
Larkin supports his thesis with a close analysis of Biblical scripture and other sources, which he supplements with a series of illustrations and charts which pictorially demonstrate the validity of his arguments. Various recurring themes in Christianity, such as the conflict between the church and the Kingdom of God, and the natural of the spiritual world from which Christ will return, are discussed.
Clarence Larkin was a preacher and theologian who wrote a number of books which sought to explain the more obscure or mystical elements of the Holy Bible. His investigations were exhaustive, with every sentence and passage analyzed, explained and clarified for the lay Christian audience. Most notable of all is Larkin's profound influence upon visual representations of the Bible: his self-penned charts, often large in size and intricate, were printed and circulated separately from the books in which they had been appended.
As The Second Coming of Christ is one of Larkin's shorter works, it may be used as an introduction both to his style of writing, and to his unique use of charts. Readers should note that as many of the charts are very large, the small print may require use of a magnifying glass to fully absorb the annotations.
