Recommends it for: Dispensationalists, Premils and Amillenialists
Talk about opening up the Bible in new and grand ways! This was the predominate view of the Puritans and is so overlooked today. It opens up the Prophetic Books, the Revelation, the Kingdom parables of Christ, and the Psalms in a way I had never known before. It is a good successor to the great deal of time I have spent reading Puritan writings and feeds the soul with hope that Christ rules all from his throne Today!

Deep exposition of eschatology. Walks through 3 major views (Postmillennialism, Postmillennialism, Premillennialism). It opened my eyes to different interpretations. Author goes to the Bible to see what it really says, rather than what human interpretations say. I especially liked the exploration of the Great Tribulation.

The author believes and makes a pretty convincing case for Postmil. He seems to fairly present the other views before explaining why they're wrong. He spends most of book promot

Their vision of God's redemptive purpose was much too limited. Time has now extended nineteen centuries beyond their horizon, and has shown that God was working out a redemptive plan that was

Many Presbyterian theologians have held to the Postmillennial position, including such great men as Dr. W. G. T. Shedd, Dr. Robert L. Dabney, Dr. Augustus Strong, Dr. Charles Hodge, Dr. Robert Dabney, Dr. B.B. Warfield and Dr. John Murray to name just a few. Obviously Postmillennialism was the predominant viewpoint up to the early part of the 20th century when Premillennialism and Amillennialism became dominant in America and Dutch circles respectively. In true historic Presbyterian tradition, D ...more

Very narrow overall. Deep respect for the author, but I repudiate the perspective that the world is ripening to perfection as seen in allegorizing the prophetic scriptures. My objections are too many to list.
