Product Description

Postions on the millennium, the nature and time of Christ's one-thousand year reign, are as numerous as they are difficult to pronounce and understand. When you add in the myriad ways the doctrine is abused, it is perfectly understandable that Christians abandon or avoid studying it altogether.

Nonetheless, good, solid, and exegetically based resources exist for serious inquirers. One of the best available today and recently expanded is Kim Riddlebarger's A Case for Amillenialism provides definitions of key terms and a helpful overview--but not technical--of various viewpoints. He examines related biblical topics as a backdrop to understanding the subject and discusses important passages of Scripture that bear upon the millennial question.

Regardless of their own stance, readers will be challenged but not overwhelmed by Riddlebarger's study and its evaluation of the main problems facing each of the major millennial positions. Moreover, Riddlebarger's insightful detailing of the implications and thus the consequences of each and cautions readers to be aware of the spiraling consequences of each view.

Publisher's Description

Amillennialism, dispensational premillennialism, historic premillennialism, postmillennialism, preterism. These are difficult words to pronounce and even harder concepts to understand. A Case for Amillennialism is an accessible look at the crucial theological question of the millennium in the context of contemporary evangelicalism.

Recognizing that eschatology--the study of future things--is a complicated and controversial subject, Kim Riddlebarger provides definitions of key terms and a helpful overview of various viewpoints. He examines related biblical topics as a backdrop to understanding the subject and discusses important passages of Scripture that bear upon the millennial question.

Regardless of their stance, readers will find helpful insight as Riddlebarger evaluates the main problems facing each of the major millennial positions and cautions readers to be aware of the spiraling consequences of each view.

    The debate over end-time events has never raged stronger in the Church than it does today. Proponents of the three major millennial positions (pre, post, and a) each have compelling arguments based upon their understanding of the same biblical texts. What this seems to reveal is that none of those positions is arrived at apart from a certain degree of presupposition that colors the arguments. There are good men lined up behind all three banners, men whose convictions are strong and unrelenting. Few are completely guiltless of charging those from the other camps of "doctrinal error," but hopefully not outright heresy. In short, each proponent, regardless of his stance, takes "pot shots" at the other. For the past four decades--thanks primarily to Hal Lindsey's "Late Great Planet Earth" and more recently the phenomenally successful "Left Behind" series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, the premillennial (namely, the pretributional rather then the historical) option has been the most popular among evangelicals. In rebuttal, Kim Riddlebarger has sought to present "A Case for Amillennialism," and does so from a strongly reformed posture. In this updated version of his 200 work, the cohost of the White Horse Inn (along with Michael Horton, who wrote the book's foreword) has added chapters and charts that add material to and greatly enhance the first edition. The book begins with a modestly-fair appraisal of the other eschatological schools of thought before entering into an exposition of the critical prophetic texts (e.g., Daniel's prophecy of the seventy weeks, the Olivet Discourse, Romans 11 and Revelation 20). Interesting, both Riddlebarger and Sam Storms (who has recently released his own book on amillennialism entitled "Kingdom Come") were reared under premillennial teaching, but both found too many inconsistencies in that system to remain comfortable. As one educated in similar circles, I too find it increasingly difficult to unquestioningly reconcile certain biblical passages with the pre-trib, pre-mill system. I read both Riddelbarger's and Storms' out of curiosity, and while I have not been fully persuaded, I am better informed and I am grateful for their perspective. Both writers refer to having the amillennial position "demonized" or, at best, inadequately portrayed by their premillennial teachers. I too have sat through classes where that was done, as well. Their research--and I trust my own--is with the desire to gain a more biblically-driven and Spirit-led hermeneutic by which to interpret the end times. It should be said that none of the millennial positions are without problems. A-mills, like their pre-mill and post-mill counterparts, must deal with questions that probably will not be answered to satisfaction until Jesus returns. Only then we will all know His plan for the end times. For those interested, in September 2009 John Piper and Bethlehem Seminary hosted a roundtable discussion with James Hamilton, Doug Wilson, and Sam Storms, who represented the premillennial, postmillennial, and amillennial positions respectively. The "debate" lasted two hours and is available for both listening and viewing at desiringgod.org. Search "An Evening of Eschatology. It is well worth the investment of time. And so is this thought-provoking book.
