Samuel Whitefield has once again set a whole new standard for preaching and teaching what the Bible has to say on the topic of the “End Times.” His new book It Must Be Finished is a wonderful treatment of a host of biblical texts that need to be read, understood, and taught afresh in these final days before our Lord returns. Readers will not be disappointed by this book nor will it treat this subject in a wearisome and hackneyed way: rather, it will produce a whole new set of understandings that unfortunately have all too often lain dormant in the church for far too long. I urge the church along with its pastors and teachers to quickly get a copy and begin the conversation and action demanded by our Lord to meet the coming days of the End Times.

It Must be Finished is a strong and insightful read that will stir and inspire your heart for the return of Jesus Christ. Samuel has a way of “connecting the dots” in the mind of the reader about God’s grand story line while simultaneously stirring vision for the church in the coming days. With so much hypothesis and speculation about the end times being propagated in our generation, it is refreshing to have a book like this that helps to anchor our hearts in the Word of God while equipping us to mentor and disciple others in these things.
Jim Stern, Lead Pastor, Destiny Church, St. Louis
Samuel Whitefield is proving to be a very capable theological thinker. It is wonderful to add him to the ranks of those who interpret the Bible in a straight forward manner according to the original context and literary genre. May God speed the acceptance of this book and its influence.

God is raising up “Shepherds according to His heart who will feed people on knowledge and understanding” so that hearts will be strengthened and minds will have clarity to understand what God is doing in the earth in these days. Samuel Whitefield is one of the shepherds who God is using to bring understanding of His heart and plans. The subject of the end times is so much more than graphs, charts, and timelines. It is ultimately a story, and when your heart connects to this story it causes faith, hope, and love to explode in your heart and mind. I’ve known Samuel Whitefield for ten years, and I can attest to his tireless labor to see the subject of the end times go from a topic only scholars understand to a subject the whole body of Christ can engage with.

Samuel Whitefield has been studying the Scriptures relating to the end times for many years now, praying for insight and digging deep into the plain sense of the text. In doing so, he challenges us to dive into these texts with him, also challenging us to ask: How does this apply to me today? You will be stirred and sobered and encouraged as you study along with Samuel.

Once again Samuel has written passionately and plainly about Jesus’ grand redemptive plan for Israel and the nations which climaxed on Calvary and will culminate with Jesus’ second coming. In this book, Samuel helps readers navigate redemptive history with a clear meta-narrative undergirded by biblical reasons for Jesus’ coming. It Must Be Finished is refreshing and helpful to anyone who desires to understand biblical eschatology and missiology.
