And Then the End Will Come

Douglas Cobb


Did you know that the global church is only a few years away from fulfilling Jesus’ command to “make disciples of every nation?” And that Jesus explicitly tied his return to the completion of that task?

In And Then the End Will Come, Douglas Cobb, founder of the Finishing Fund, provides a front-line account of the effort to finish Jesus’ Great Commission in our lifetimes. He also explores nine other Biblical clues that Jesus is coming soon, including

  • the approaching 2000-year anniversary of the resurrection,
  • the regathering of Israel,
  • and the prophecies of Daniel 12.

He makes the case that the return of Christ is at hand—perhaps in the next year or two, perhaps a little later, but assuredly very soon. And he offers practical instruction about what it means to “live holy and godly lives” as we look for the coming of our Lord and King.

If you’re discouraged about the craziness you see in the world today, And Then the End Will Come will offer you hope for better things soon to come—things so great that the Bible says no one can imagine how awesome they will be.


  • In his book, And Then the End Will Come, Doug Cobb takes a humble and holistic approach to better understanding what the Bible teaches concerning the return of Christ. I love that this book doesn’t get lost in the eschatological weeds and that it doesn’t just convey information, but it explores the implications of how we must live, love, and lead as the end draws near.

  • I’ve known Doug Cobb for thirty years. He is the real deal. You will be blessed and encouraged by sitting at Doug’s feet, and his thoroughly researched and biblical book will fill you with hope that ‘doesn’t disappoint.’

  • And Then the End Will Come is so needed for times like these. This biblically based, easy-to-follow study of the second coming deepens confidence in the truth of God’s Word, inspires hope in desperate times, motivates us to holy living, and reignites the fires of evangelism. Be encouraged by it while you ‘wait for the blessed hope—the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.’

  • This book is power packed, fast paced, solid, and thorough. It’s worth the read! But as you delve in, don’t seek to be merely informed. Doug is extending an invitation for all of us to join in the greatest faith adventure known to humankind.

  • Christians believe Jesus is coming back, but we rarely explore or seek to understand it. In this book, Doug Cobb guides us with biblical richness to see that the Bible has much to say to prepare us for this great day.

  • Regardless of your take on biblical prophecy, there is one sure promise of Jesus: he will return. As Doug Cobb explains in And Then the End Will Come, some of us believe that we are very close to seeing the gospel proclaimed everywhere. Your heart will be lifted as you read this new book by Doug Cobb.
