This volume, however, offers a compelling case for an alternative perspective--one that was widely prevalent throughout church history. The contributors, all respected scholars in their respective fields, suggest that classic premillennialism offers believers a more coherent and viable approach to understanding eschatology.
Their studies, which examine eschatology from biblical, theological, historical, and missiological approaches, provide a broadly accessible argument for returning to the perspectives of historic premillennial eschatology.
Sung Wook Chung (D.Phil., Oxford University) is associate professor of Christian theology at Denver Seminary. He is the author of Admiration and Challenge: Karl Barth's Theological Relationship with John Calvineditor of Christ the One and Only: A Global Affirmation of the Uniqueness of Jesus Christ.
"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, professor of New Testament, 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, professor of Old Testament, Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary
The contributors to this volume provide a thoughtful alternative. They present compelling arguments for historic or classic premillennialism--a position widely held throughout church history (and popularly advanced in the writings of George Eldon Ladd). An introductory chapter examines the differences within premillennial eschatology and considers reasons for the widespread popularity of dispensationalism in the twentieth century. This is followed by biblical, theological, historical, and missiological studies that reexamine classic premillennialism, particularly with regard to its understanding of the return of Christ.
The authors, all respected scholars in their fields, present arguments for a return to an eschatological theology that was widely held for many centuries. Their engaging studies should be of great interest to evangelical readers--both in the academy and in the church.
