Scholarly and thought provoking. This is an edited compilation of Vos' notes on the subject. I suggest reading Vos' "Biblical Theology" before reading this.

This is not a book discussing the 70 weeks in Daniel 9 or other end times passages, rather the first section deals with hermeneutics, providing some useful discussion of both the OT use of the OT, and NT use of the OT, the remainder of the book examines messianic prophecies, tracing their development such as the Shiloh prophecy of Genesis 49:10. A good combination of hermeneutics and messianic theology via biblical theology in the OT.

A book that I wouldn't recommend to anyone but would love to recommend to everyone! Since it was based off of lectures it can be a bit thick to read, but within the words are some really good reflections. I especially like what he mentioned about individual and corporate distinctions in the Old Testament prophecy schema. But due to its thick reading, sometimes incomplete thoughts and presupposed knowledge it makes the book a bit inaccessible at times.

Perhaps because this book was a collection of notes for a study on OT eschatology that Vos gave, that it is often a difficult read. There is a lot of interaction with the "critical school", which was just too much for me. There were a lot of helpful things, but overaly, the book is not an easy read.

Geerhardus Johannes Vos was an American Calvinist theologian and one of the most distinguished representatives of the Princeton Theology. He is sometimes called the father of Reformed Biblical Theology.

Vos was born to a Dutch Reformed pastor in Heerenveen in Friesland in the Netherlands. In 1881, when Geerhardus was 19 years old, his father accepted a call to be the pastor of the Christian Reforme
