Before this book, I know of no other extensive premillennial work that critiques this amillennial two-age model. Most of the writings on premillennialism over the past 50-100 years have focused on dispensational-like topics, but this book does not. Though Waymeyer is a progressive dispensationalist (not a true dispensationalist), and though his progressive dispensationalism shows in some very small areas of the book, it's not enough to turn off the covenantal historic premillennialist (like ...more

Excellent book! Not only is this work thoroughly exegetical, comprehensive, well structured, and clearly written, but it is also written in a truly gracious and irenic way, something rarely seen on any side of the millennial debate. After reading Kim Riddlebarger’s ‘A Case for Amillennialism’, this book provided clear and detailed exegetical answers to all the arguments raised by Riddlebarger and other amillenial authors, while demonstrating that amillennialism in fact has much greater ...more

Amillennialism and the Age to Come: A Premillennial Critique of the Two-Age Model by Matt Waymeyer is an excellent critique of Amillennialism and, in the process, an excellent defense of Premillennialism.

I learned a lot about Amillennialism and grew even more confident (if that's even possible) in Premillennialism. One of the key things that seems to mark the Amillennial view is that they apparently believe that many Old Testament passages that speak of a this-earth Millennium are symbolic, not

This is not a book for everyone. Unbelievers will most likely find little of interest or benefit in this book. Many believers tend to find the doctrines of the end times too speculative, complicated, and confusing for their spiritual palettes to digest. This particular book by Matthew Waymeyer is not necessarily an ideal intro to eschatology for everyone. While you don’t have to be a scholar to follow the discussion, it helps to at least be conversant in the discussions of the end times.

This book is primarily a critique of the two-age schema of amillennialism. Waymeyer works carefully through a number of issues pertaining to this framework. He gives copious footnotes and direct quotes. He presents the basic amillennial interpretation and gives space to differing views within the amill camp. He also presents the interpretation of premillennialists, and also notice the existence of different views within that camp. He attempted to present views fairly without misrepresentation. ...more

Very good treatment of the issues. It is a fair, honest, and substantial critique of the amillennial position. For the most part I found it convincing; there were a few places I found the amillennial arguments more persuasive. Overall, a careful study and a good overview of both the amil and premil perspectives.

An absolutely excellent evaluation of the Amillennial view, exposing the various views held by this camp and showing very specifically the problems with such interpretations of Scripture. The author is oh so gracious but speaks directly to the hermeneutical approach of both the Amillennial view and the Premillennial view. Having embraced the Premill view many years ago, I have always wondered about several passages that the Amill view embraces so dogmatically. In all honesty, much of what the ...more

Matt Waymeyer does an outstanding job of dissecting the biblical issues involved in the Amillennialism verses Premillennial discussion.
While this is not a quick, or necessarily easy read, it is enjoyable to be carried by the author's dialogue of investigation. Matt Waymeyer dismantles the fine sounding arguments and rationales with methodical literary craftsmanship. There is and overwhelming amount of verifiable reference material presented also. At every point, in every chapter, the author

One of the best exegetical defenses I've ever encountered germane to eschatology, specifically the raging debate on the nature of the millennium. A bit weight if you aren't used to reading doctoral thesis's turned books, but well worth your time if you are invested in the matter.

If you're interested in understanding what the Bible says about the millennial reign, this book is essential reading. Matt is very systematic in his exegetical approach, and I found his arguments to be well-reasoned and thorough. I previously listened to 40 hours of Kim Riddlebarger on Amillennialism, and Matt responds to every significant objection and argument you'll find in a work like Riddlebarger's 'A Case for Amillennialism'. When I listened to Riddlebarger on the topic, I was shocked by ...more

Thorough examination

Well thought though and thorough examination of amilennialism and premillenialism.
Gives points and counter points. Well researched clear examination of the relevant biblical
texts.

This is an excellent response to Amillennialism giving deep reasoned exegetical answers to the many challenges that Amil scholars propose. The two-age model of interpretation is challenged in its application to the Bible and Weymeyer clearly points out its deficiencies in being used as an interpretive grid. This is a must read book for all those working through eschatology and gives excellent support to a literal grammatical historical hermeneutic. Waymeyer systematically works through text ...more

This is the best book on (and defence of) premillennialism I've read. Waymeyer actually seeks to understand the amillennial critiques of his position and to interact with them which goes above and beyond all of the other books I've read defending premillennialism. Ultimately, I found his exegesis of two-age model passages unsatisfactory, in that his explanations of them violate his own hermeneutic, or were at least far fetched. Also, there were a bunch of 'two age model' texts that I find ...more
