Where will you be when the lights go out?

What will happen one minute after midnight on January 1, 2000, when the internal clocks on computers all over the world hit "00"? Will planes fall from the sky? Will darkened homes become the target of looters in search of stockpiled food? Will the economy collapse under the weight of massive withdrawals of cash in the weeks before "the bug" strikes? Will Jesus come?

As the year 2000 approaches, fear, sensationalism, hype, Y2K anxiety, and theological extravagances are reaching fever pitch. "Soft" date setting has crept back into the end-time dialogue of many popular Adventist speakers and writers. And as proponents of the "6,000-year" theory warn church members to get their spiritual houses in order, should thinking Adventists head for the hills?

In The Millennium Bug, author and New Testament professor Jon Paulien steps into the arena of Y2K mania and boldly rebuts those who have reached sensational conclusions about the millennium that are unsupported by the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy. With humility and clearheaded scholarship, Paulien shows how to avoid the twin traps of overplaying the nearness of the end or ignoring the evidences that the final events are upon us. Maintaining the proper balance between expectancy and "occupying" until the Lord comes is what this book is all about.

A timely and practical book that every Adventist eagerly looking forward to Jesus' soon return should read.
