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 pre millennialism 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.

From the Back Cover:

Twentieth- and twenty-first-century American evangelicalism, particularly at the popular level, has been virtually saturated with the eschatology of dispensational premillennialism. This volume provides a thoughtful alternative by presenting compelling arguments for historic or classic premillennialism--a position widely held throughout church history. Contributors include Craig L. Blomberg, Oscar A. Campos, Sung Wook Chung, Hélène Dallaire, Donald Fairbairn, Richard S. Hess, Don J. Payne, and Timothy P. Weber.

"It's about time we had a scholarly presentation and defense of historic premillennialism, which is probably the majority view of the 'end times' among theologically trained evangelicals. These authors are eminently qualified to give us that, and here they have done it. All evangelicals and others interested in alternatives to the popular folk religious beliefs about the 'end times' must read this book. If read carefully by many, it will turn the growing tide of 'pretrib rapturism' and restore the eschatology of the Bible and the church fathers."--Roger E. Olson, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University

"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, 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, Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary
