In the Last Days—Free on Kindle, Again

On August 27, 2016, you can download the Kindle version of In the Last Days: A Brief Guide to Christ's Second Coming for Latter-day Saints, free. It's always free for Prime and Kindle Unlimited members, and through Amazon's Matchbook program, but on the last Saturday of this month, it will be free to anyone.

This is a basic guide for newcomers to the topic who want to look at a wide variety of scriptural passages that cast light on the Last Days, the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the Millennium, and the end of the world. Students of the Second Coming won't find anything sensational, highly speculative, or particularly new or groundbreaking in this book, but rather a simple, scriptural foundation for the doctrine surrounding this sacred season.

More elementary than exhaustive, the guide walks through many of the major events surrounding the Second Coming of Christ, mainly through the Standard Works of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—the Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price—but also through some archaeological, historical, and statistical sources. (It's a compilation of posts from my blog "Put on the Armor of Light," written between September 2014 and November 2015.)
