The Bible and the Future
I heartily recommend this exigetically sound book for anyone seeking clarity on all specific matters pertaining to individual and general eschatology. Coming from an unabashedly amillennialist perspective, Hoekema presents a strong and compelling alternative position to premillennialism, especially the Dispensationalist variety.

Excellent. Hoekema has taken a subject that often leaves many confused in sensationalism, and uncovered a clear path to understanding the present and coming Kingdom of God.

I have enjoyed and recommended this book for years. Though slightly dated, and therefore not conversant with the current debate over radical preterism, it remains by far the single most comprehensive and penetrating volume on eschatology available. It is particularly helpful in explaining and refuting the Dispensational heresy that so beclouds the Blessed Hope of the Church. Yet the spirit of the book is always irenic, never schismatic. If, along with this book, you buy More Than Conquerors (Wm. Hendrickson)and Leupold's commentary on Daniel, your eschatology library will be complete.

The best comprehensive treatment of Reformed amillennialism and eschatology in print. Must reading! Also, to complement this one, Cornelius Venema's, Promise of the Future, along with Kim Riddlebarger's, A Case for Amillennialism.
