A helpful and readable introduction to eschatology. Provides a good analysis of eschatologies stemming from dispensationalist and non-dispensationalist viewpoints. Presents a strong case for the latter. (The author was brought up as a dispensationalist but then became convinced of the non-dispensationalist viewpoint from his reading of the Bible.) Touches on the millennium and argues for a premillennist interpretation.
