"The unprecedented popularity of the Left Behind series of novels has brought the issues of eschatology and the return of Christ to the forefront of popular thinking. Many in the pew and the pulpit are asking if these novels are a accurate portrayal of biblical prophecy or a tragic misunderstanding of the teachings of Scripture. Ironically, some today are coming to the latter conclusion. These novels have come on the scene at a time when premillennialism, the theological position upon which the Left Behind series is based, is under attack....These authors seek to establish premillennialism's venerable historical foundations, its current viability and its hope for the future. In the process, they address the implications of the amillennial and postmillennial positions." -from the editors' Preface
Essays On Premillennialism-This collection of writings from leading theologians reaffirms the biblical doctrine.
