Overview

The second coming of Christ is a matter of sharp disagreement amongst Christians. Many hold to premillennialism: that Christ's return will be followed by 1,000 years before the final judgement, a belief popularised in the popular Left Behind novels. However, premillennialism is not the only option for Christians. In this important new book, Sam Storms provides a biblical rationale for amillennialism; the belief that 1,000 years mentioned in the book of Revelation is symbolic with the emphasis being the King and his Kingdom.

Editorial Reviews

Douglas F Kelly
"...the most helpful book on the various millennial views I have seen since W. J. Grier's The Momentous Event. His work is marked by careful exegesis of pertinent texts, and ranges widely and deeply in all of the relevant Scriptural passages dealing with the end of the age."
Thomas R Schreiner
"Storms marshals exegetical and theological arguments in defense of his view in this wide-ranging work. Even those who remain unconvinced will need to reckon with the powerful case made for an amillennial reading. The author calls us afresh to be Bereans who are summoned to search the scriptures to see if these things are so."
Justin Taylor
"There is something in here to challenge and to encourage all of us, no matter our persuasion. I pray this book will help others in the same way it has helped me."
Kevin DeYoung
"This is a remarkable book which will surely become the standard bearer for Amillennialism for years to come."
G K Beale
"Sam Storms' book, Kingdom Come: the Amillennial Alternative, is a substantial work on the viability of the Amillennial perspective on eschatology, including that of the Book of Revelation.....Even those who may disagree with Storms' Amillennial approach will definitely benefit from his book."

Sam Storm is an amillennial, Calvinistic, charismatic, credo-baptistic, complementarian, Christian Hedonist who loves his wife and daughters. So it seems only natural that he should be the author of a brand new book Kingdom Come: The Amillennial Alternative.  I'll be honest, I didn't really delve into apocalyptic literature in seminary. Everyone thinks their pastor has super-secrets about the end-times, but the truth is, everything I learned about the end times I learned from the Left Behind series. Granted, I knew when I was reading it that I probably needed more research on the subject, but the end of days has never really fascinated me. But to do a little "Left Behind for Dummies" the authors of said series and many main stream pastors preach what is called "Dispensationalism" in short it's a very literal approach to the end times and because it's the loudest voice, it tends to be the only voice. Sam Storm would like to argue for another approach. In his new book, Mr. Storm argues for the Amillennial interpretation. Whereas the Left Behind fans argue for a much more attractive battle and fanatical story - Amillennials (which is Latin for a rejection of the Millennial interpretation) believe that the thousand year reign in Revelation 20 is merely symbolic and that the millennium has already begun.  Dispensationalists interpret two "returns to Earth" from Jesus - and the Amillennials only one. This is a great book and a great resource, Mr. Storms has done his homework and the book is a great tool. The back of the book has an extended scripture and topical index. That said, don't expect Mr. Storms to spoon feed you the information and hold your hand through the whole thing. This book reads very academically and is certainly for those who are die-hard about this information.  This book is seriously for everyone who has been waiting for another position to be spoken and defended. This is an amazing resource that deserves to be on every serious theologian's shelf.  Thank you to Mentor publishing for this review copy for a fair and honest review.
