Central to that optimistic generation is Rousas John Rushdoony's jewel of a study, God's Plan for Victory (originally published in 1977). The ...more

A good short argument for postmillenialism as the only eschatology likely to encourage fearless Christian cultural advances. Not a defence of postmillenialism as a view with solid roots in Scripture, and not intended to be, but loses some effectiveness through not dealing with postmillenialism's formidable theological cred.

Short, but extremely insightful. This is not a detailed exegetical defense of postmillenialism, but rather a general discourse (almost an essay collection) on what postmillenialism entails and the inadequacy of other eschatologies.

A short but extremely loaded introduction to and summary of postmillenialism. Highly recommended.

Rushdoony's famous summary work on Postmillennialism -- the eschatology of God's victory. Rushdoony also reviews the pre- and a- millennial theories and their errors.

Highly recommended as a starting point in learning Biblical eschatology (study of the end times) and how eschatology and action are related.

This book is so short and easy to read that there is no excuse to not read it.

[BTW, it did not take me 4 months to read. I was just side tracked.]

In this short, easy to read book R.J. Rushdoony issues a clarion call to the church to cast off a despairing, unbiblical view on the world and history and embrace God's Plan for Victory.

Rushdoony lays out the plain and simple facts for a Biblical support of postmil. eschatology. A must read!

This is a very short work in which Rushdoony argues the biblical case for postmillenialism and demonstrates that premillenialism and amillenialism lead to theologies of defeat and abandon the dominion mandate.

It is an effective work with some incisive commentary. It is a worthwhile read.

In one of the most biting comments, Rushdoony writes, "there is An Implicit Manichaeanism in premillennialism and in amillennialism. The material world is surrendered to Satan, and the spiritual world is reserved

I enjoyed this book. I didn't agree with all that Rushdoony wrote (particularly his attack on Arminianism) but the logic of post-millennialism is rooted in Scripture. This is a short and easy to read introduction to postmillennialism.
