Finally! What Christians have searched for since the Reformation-the early church premillennial view of prophecy. It was lost in the dark ages. It was prevented from being researched in the sixteenth century by Reformation wars. Early Church Premillennialism remained lost. Until today! Today, all discovered writings of the earliest church fathers have been compiled in the ten-volume collection The Ante-Nicene Fathers, Translations of the Writings of the Fathers Down to A.D. 325. Gleaned from almost a hundred quotations from these early church writings, you will discover in this book what those who lived closest to Christ's disciples taught about: The Rapture of the Church Signs that Precede Christ's Return (are they now unfolding?) The Tribulation (they interpreted it differently than today) The Antichrist (their insights into this coming evil world leader) The Wrath of the Lamb Armageddon The Millennium The New Heaven and New Earth . . . and much more . . . You will find how simple Bible prophecy is when interpreted as the earliest church fathers knew how to interpret it.

Many evangelical readers who have learned the basics of eschatology from popular authors and more recently from novelists assume that dispensational premillennialism, with its distinctive teachings about the pretribulation rapture of the church, is the only reliable view of the end times and the return of Christ. 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.

As documented in this book, the most persistent challenge by skeptics hostile to the Bible and Christianity is that Jesus did not return when He promised—within the lifetimes of his followers. Indeed, there are over 100 passages in the New Testament clearly declaring: (1) that the writers of the New Testament themselves were in the "last days," and (2) that Jesus would return while some of his disciples were still alive, in fulfillment of all that had been prophesied. Were Jesus and the New Testament writers wrong? If Jesus and the writers of the New Testament were wrong, they could not have been inspired, and Jesus Himself was a false prophet. This critical problem must be addressed by the church. Could the "last days" be referring to the final days of the Old Covenant order rather than to the end of the physical universe? Was the "time of the end" when Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed in AD 70—the date when the ancient covenantal system of temple sacrifices for sin ended forever? Could many modern Christians have misunderstood what Jesus meant by his Parousia (his "Second Coming") —that it was to be a divine, but non-visible "coming in judgment" against the Jews in AD 70—similar to God's coming in judgment against the Jews or their enemies on multiple occasions in the Old Testament? Could the King James Version of the Bible have misled English speaking Christians for 400 years about certain critical details? This book explores these possibilities, which if true, resolve the challenges to the accuracy of the Bible. The author examines the growing view of Bible prophecy called "preterism" or "covenant eschatology." This is the view that most, if not all prophecy has been fulfilled, completely disarming the challenges by Christianity's opponents. Before you dismiss this idea, you should test your presuppositions against what the Bible actually says. The preterist view has been held by some Christians since the first century and is gaining adherents today as flaws in the popular theories are being critically examined and discredited. Evangelical preterism restores Jesus as a true prophet and the Bible as reliable and authoritative. The torrent of popular books and claims about biblical prophecy in recent decades seems to have a peculiar appeal to lay believers who, curiously enough, find hope in an expected destruction of the planet and its replacement with a utopia in which even carnivorous animals will take up vegetarianism. It is simply taken for granted that the Bible predicts and explains an end of time, and that there is no number of elapsed centuries spent waiting for it that cannot be called the "end times." This book upends such notions and will be of considerable interest to any Christian who takes the Bible seriously but is confounded, confused, and frustrated with the near comical, but sad state of affairs that afflicts modern Christianity on the question of the supposed end of all things. The book is the product of over 10 years of research by the author, along with input from eight contributors. The book critically examines all of the popular views of Bible prophecy, many of which are contradictory or are little more than fanciful speculations without biblical support. It is written in easy-to-follow language for the informed layman, and it clearly and definitively answers the objections to the preterist view. If you have never studied Bible prophecy carefully, or if the various modern views of prophecy just do not make sense when you read your Bible, this book will give you increased confidence in God's Word. It covers all of the eschatological topics including the New Heaven and New Earth, the Day of the Lord, the End of the Age, the Apocalypse, the Beast, the Great Tribulation, the Millennium, the Second Coming, the Kingdom of God, the Rapture, the Resurrection, and more. It brings extraordinary clarity to a difficult subject. Fear not to be challenged and changed.

How we understand God's future purposes for the world must shape, to a significant degree, how Christians live life in the present. The decades since the publication of Hal Lindsey's, The Late Great Planet Earth, have seen a great deal of end-times speculation. Signs of the end-time apocalypse occurring soon have been heralded across our radios, televisions, the internet, and through written forms of media, urging people to either be ready for the rapture or be left behind to endure the horrific suffering of the tribulation as God's end-time program unfolds. Is this really what the Bible teaches about the purposes of the God of whom our Bible declares so loved the world that he gave his only son in order that all things be reconciled. The Last Days of Dispensationalism carefully examines this popular understanding known to us as dispensationalism and urges us to think again and to see within the Bible's grand salvation narrative and in the person of Jesus Christ a better message of redemptive hope for the future and a greater sense of meaning and purpose for the present.

Are you looking forward with expectation? Although premillennialism continues to be popular today, it is by no means a new doctrine. Rather, because of its solid foundation in biblical truth, premillennialism has been a prominent system of interpretation throughout church history. Dr. Ryrie begins this book by introducing systems of interpretation and their vital importance in studying prophecy. He then proceeds to trace how premillennialism has its basis in history, hermeneutics, the Abrahamic covenant, Davidic covenant, new covenant, ecclesiology, and eschatology. Whether you are new to premillennialist teaching, or whether you are interested in a more systematic understanding of its basis in scripture, the contents of this book will clarify, instruct, and inspire. - Back cover.

Regnum Caelorum is a groundbreaking book that explores the largely overlooked connection in early Christian thought between understandings of the millennium and the intermediate state of the soul after death. Charles Hill traces Christian views of the soul's fate in Jewish texts, the New Testament, and in early Christian writers through the mid-third century A.D. His findings lead to a provocative new assessment of the development of Christian eschatology that corrects many misconceptions of earlier scholarly research. This second edition updates and substantially expands Hill's highly respected original work published by Oxford.
