The Stage is Set




Even a cursory glance at the news is enough to convince us that the world is falling into chaos. But we haven’t seen anything that compares to what will happen in the final events leading to the second coming of Jesus Christ.For anyone who longs to know what the future holds–and especially for those who look for a glimmer of hope in our broken world–highly respected pastor and Bible teacher Bryant Wright offers a book that shows God has not lost control over his creation. In fact, he has a sovereign plan that includes ultimate victory for the church and the salvation of his people, Israel. God’s timeless promises offer hope to believers who are grieved at the state of the world. Wright carefully illuminates the signs of the times that point toward his glorious appearing and millennial reign, and answers common questions, such as:

– What does the Bible say about the antichrist?
– What will be the future of Israel?
– Where is Armageddon, what will happen there, and why?


“Bryant Wright has done a remarkable job jolting faithful believers into the realization that The Stage Is Set for the end times. Don’t just read this book. Pass it on!” —Michael Youssef, PhD, author of Jesus, Jihad, and Peace

“This book is a clear and concise study of the end times. It is both biblical and relevant to the world in which we live. One need not agree with all the details of interpretation to benefit from its insights. The future is bright because Jesus is coming again. This work will get you ready for that glorious day.” —Daniel L. Akin, president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Bryant Wright has accomplished what too few pastors today even attempt. He has addressed the pressing questions of the eschaton that church people deeply desire to have their pastor answer, and he has demonstrated that his grasp of the Scriptures provides preparation for the last days. The Stage Is Set provides a priceless evaluation of the false promises of the pseudoprophets of the era and instructs the church in constructing a godly response of witness and life in the gradually darkening theater of this age. Do not miss this pastor’s insights into the last days.” —Paige Patterson, president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

“To show how much I respect, admire, and believe in Bryant as a teacher and expositor of God’s Word, I am endorsing a book on eschatology from the perspective of a premillennialist, while I myself am a pretty stubborn amillennialist. Having said this, if you want to be well-informed and encouraged from all perspectives, The Stage Is Set is a must-read book. Bryant is in a rare class of those who handle well God’s Word.” —Randy Pope, founding pastor of Perimeter Church
