Overview

Twentieth- and twenty-first-century American evangelicalism, particularly at the popular level, has been virtually saturated with the eschatology of dispensational premillennialism.

Overview

Twentieth- and twenty-first-century American evangelicalism, particularly at the popular level, has been virtually saturated with the eschatology of dispensational premillennialism.

"It's about time we had a scholarly presentation and defense of historic premillennialism, which is probably the majority view of the 'end times' among theologically trained evangelicals. These authors are eminently qualified to give us that, and here they have done it. All evangelicals and others interested in alternatives to the popular folk religious beliefs about the 'end times' must read this book. If read carefully by many, it will turn the growing tide of 'pretrib rapturism' and restore the eschatology of the Bible and the church fathers."—Roger E. Olson, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University

"This book provides a welcome alternative to popular notions of the end-times, which sometimes seem to be recycled news headlines. Particularly helpful is the book's critique of 'left-behind' theology, which I believe can be defended only by taking a lot of Scripture out of context."—Craig Keener, Palmer Seminary; author of the NIV Application Commentary on Revelation

"These fine essays offer various ways in which to understand the claim that Christ's millennial reign on earth will be made public and manifest at the end of the age. They are especially appealing due to the depth of biblical and historical thought covered and the open and irenic ways in which the authors engage the subject matter and other options for interpretation. To read these essays is to have a discerning experience, as their authors write to inform and to persuade."—J. Andrew Dearman, Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary
