The book, The Latter Rain, by James M. Conis offers readers insights in three distinct areas:
1. It develops a framework of symbolism from the Book of Isaiah that is new and genuine. On page 25, the reader is introduced to the most significant symbolic types employed by Isaiah to convey meaning. Applying this symbolic framework to one’s study of the Bible unlocks the meaning of not just Isaiah’s writings, but of the rest of the Bible as well—from Genesis to Revelation.
2. It defines the term, The Latter Rain, in a way that is unique and profound. Throughout the Bible, nine verses of scripture mention this curious term. Many of these same verses also mention the idea of a Former Rain as well. Reading this book helps the reader understand the meaning of this term, and what one should expect to encounter in the final and great dispensation of the Latter Rain.
3. It shows with strong evidence taken directly from the King James Version of the Bible that Jesus Christ is the True Messiah, and the Savior of the earth. His priesthood power and established Kingdom in the Latter Days are shown to be a significant theme of the ancient prophets.
