Publisher's Description

Christ is coming again. Since the first century, Christians have agreed that Christ will return. But since that time there have also been many disagreements. How will Christ return? When will he return? What sort of kingdom will he establish? What is the meaning of the millennium? These questions persist today. Four major views on the millennium have had both a long history and a host of Christian adherents. In this book Robert G. Clouse brings together proponents of each view: George Eldon Ladd on historic premillenniallism, Herman A. Hoyt on dispensational premillennialism, Loraine Boettner on post-millennialism and Anthony A. Hoekema on amillennialism. After each view is presented, proponents of the three competing views respond from their own perspectives. Here you'll encounter a lively and productive debate among respected Christian scholars that will help you gain clearer and deeper understanding of the different ways the church approaches the meaning of the millennium.

Editorial Reviews

"This work is an excellent introduction to the discussion as well as a pointer to additional works on the subject."
"A stimulated debate and an excellent learning tool . . . . The book opens a fresh and fruitful dialogue."
"Congratualtions to IV Press and to editor Clouse for bringing together the most adequate dialogue yet, on the divergent eschatological understandings found in modern evangelicalism."

    It is sad that a topic that has caused so much confusion in the Christian world should so seldom be treated as openly and fairly as it is in this book. I would love to see more books like this, where everyone presents his point of view and is even allowed to respond to everybody else's points of view. The book is not new, but it is well worth the read. Even in reading views that in general terms I do not share, I have learned important truths that have really been helpful to me.
