"A sane book about a theme usually left to crackpots: the end of the world. I wonder whether a Church preoccupied with the penultimate will notice this book. For the sake of its soul, it needs to."
"By a skilful use of primary authorities, the author subjects the world to a rigorous examination of its political, commercial and moral trends. Here is a book, nicely written, that invites careful and prayerful study. I recommend it."
"A new book just published by the Lutterworth Press, Watching for the Morning, by Philip Blair, analyses current events and their influence on the new millennium. It is aimed at the general reader but it is scriptural and presents the Christian hope for the future. In spite of today's turmoil, social immorality and 'everyone for himself' ideology, the author points out that the Christian is faithful to God, in whom there is salvation and the sure promise of deliverance from the 'last tribulation'."
"Philip Blair's writings are invariably stimulating."
David Gilbert, in Sherborne Scene
"... begins with a good and wide ranging review of issues within society across the globe, welcome critique offers interesting insights and will assist in opening an interesting debate."
"An erudite, scholarly and thoroughly up-to-date account of the power struggles that have plagued the Holy Land throughout history and then follows this story tale with prophetical material from the Old and New Testaments suggesting what devout Christians might reasonably expect of God in the near future. ... He is adept in the interpretation of symbols. ... This book is interesting, politically well-informed, and very alarming – especially for the non-chosen ones."
