An excellent exposition of the scriptures relating to Antichrist as seen through an amillennial lens. Riddlebarger doesn't fall into the trap of setting dates and other unbiblical speculation, but goes as far as the scriptures allow and no farther.

Riddlebarger offers exegetical and responsible guidance on the doctrine of the Antichrist. The benefit of this book is that it is clear and organized--clearly a product of extensive research and reflection. In the first chapter, he chastens contemporary evangelicalism's obsession with eschatology in general and the Antichrist in particular. Second, a survey of OT forerunners of the Antichrist is presented: Cain, Nimrod, Pharaoh, Nebuchadnezzar. Third, preliminary considerations concerning the es ...more

This was an even handed review of all major, current understandings of the millennium. The author also covers views throughout Church history. It's interesting to see that even the Puritans were susceptible to end times fever. All along, the author does not hide that he is in favor of amillennialism. The take away for me is that religious and secular leaders will persecute the visible Church over the centuries (as we can all witness) until that time (which no one knows but the Father) when the f ...more

This book was an excellent scholarly and yet very readable book on a complex topic. Riddlebarger writes with great clarity and succinctness. Riddlebarger holds an amillenial view of Scripture. I found his summative conclusions on pp167ff to be extremely helpful in tying together his case. I would recommend this book highly to anyone with interest in this subject.

Good. Gave a good description of Nero, and early Christian persecution, but failed in dating relevant canon texts.

This book gave more knowledge of eschatology for sure but the heavy amillenialism leaning prevent me from giving it five stars. I'm not positive all the information given is correct.

Great companion for A Case for Amillennialism (his first book). Clears up the Christian pop-culture of Eschatology mistranslations.

Very helpful on this subject without all the nuttiness that typically comes with this subject.
