More About This Book

Overview

This book is a Reformed/Calvinist response to Keith Mathison's multi-authored book When Shall These Things Be, which was a critique and condemnation of (full) preterism. David Green, Edward Hassertt, and Michael Sullivan demonstrate that the advent of preterism in church history is the result of "organic development" from within the historic, Reformed church, and that it represents the uniting of the divided house of Reformed eschatology. As the authors navigate through the confusing maze of the Mathison volume, they overturn the arguments that the authors of that book levied against the truth that Jesus Himself taught in no uncertain terms. This Second Edition includes added material throughout the book, especially chapter four (the response to Mathison's chapter in When Shall These Things Be). It also includes an Appendix in response to critics of the first edition of House Divided.

    Buy this book. Read it. Absorb it.

    The last time I read a book from beginning to end in one sitting was longer ago than I wish to remember. But "House Divided" so captured my attention by its sheer exegetical reasoning and smooth writing style, I couldn't put it down! If I wasn't previously aware the book had four authors, and nowhere was it recorded as such, I would have believed one person wrote the book, which strongly testifies of the unified views of the authors.

    No such reaction came to mind when I read the book WSTTB, which is the target of "House Divided". Within the pages of WSTTB, I discovered conflicting views and weak attempts to refute a realized preterism. Fortunately, the authors of "House Divided" have exposed the confusion of thought pervading WSTTB by their eloquent and strongly exegetical response found in this book, "House Divided."

    First, as I've already hinted at, the book flows quite nicely from one chapter to the next. I appreciate the footnotes at the bottom of the pages, rather than in a separate section in the back of the book, and it's worth noting that Mike Sullivan provided more than a good handful of very handy charts to help elucidate his points. The cover art is beautiful, not to mention more than appropriate to the subject matter at hand.

    All I can say about the first Chapter, "The Arbitrary Principle of Hyper-Creedalism", by David Green is, read it. Read it again. Then read it once more. Absorb it. There are powerful arguments that you will not want to miss. If there is any doubt in your mind after reading this chapter, then read it again!

    In Chapter 2, "If Preterism Is True", also by David Green, on page 38 he states that "Despite futurist errors regarding various and major prophecy-texts, the church has been, in a very real sense, teaching preterism for nearly two thousand years now." Doesn't THAT pique your interest? How can this be? Well, Mr. Green explains this comment of his and it is a compelling argument. One you don't want to miss. Along with other, just as compelling arguments, this chapter is one you don't want to miss.

    In Chapter 3, "Open Futurism", Edward Hassertt deals with the arguments put down by Dr. Richard Pratt. I'm left to wonder why Pratt was included in the book WSTTB since he seems so off point from the other authors. But nonetheless, Hassertt deals fairly and effectively with Pratt. On page 67, Hassertt makes a stunning statement: "Preterist, in contrast {i.e. to Pratt's claim that prophecy in the Bible are not necessarily going to happen as predicted], walks by faith. If it appears that a divine prediction was not fulfilled when and how God said it would be fulfilled, then it is our interpretation of the predictions, not its fulfillment, which must be called into question." I say, good advice! Amen and Amen!

    In Chapter 4, titled "The Eschatological Madness of Mathison or How Can These Things Be?", Michael Sullivan provides extremely powerful exegetical work and is worth the time to move slowly and methodically though so you don't miss a thing. Sullivan boldly confronts Keith Mathison's `dual nature' on his interpretation of time statements by pointing out the contradictory comments he has written, depending on his audience of futurists or preterist. Sullivan is adept at bringing to the forefront Mathison's Jekyll and Hyde exegesis.
