There are, as you might expect, so many issues and problems connected with non-Jewish commentators & analysts trying to apply material written for Jewish audiences from a Jewish perspective (And even the earliest so-called Christian epistles and such on the subject were born in the early Jesus Movement which was Jewish in nature & outlook and led by Jesus's brother, Yaakov aka "James" which later non-Jewish scholars & such made a mess of interpreting & applying). You'll find many books that make "course corrections" at http://biotheorist.wordpress.com/?s=books (Just drop down to the RELIGION/SPIRTUALITY section)
With all this said, there are interesting bits of thinking, speculation & "future think" that point to the fulfillment of specific prophecies in the books of Daniel, Ezekiel and others (including portions of the early Jesus Movement spawned "book of Revelations") during the next 56 years. I've pieced these together and laid the more salient ones out below in the form of a simple chart of sorts.
And yes, anything done in the realm of eschatology is sure to be controversial and contested on everything from secular to religious-historical grounds to a blend of both. If what I've outlined below turns out to be very wrong so be it. To be honest, considering the horrific nature of various prophecies in the Tanakh and in early Christian writings I would much prefer being wrong than right.
