conclusively from the teachings of Christ and the apostles that the
Christian is to expect one personal, visible, sudden, glorious coming of
the Lord Jesus, which will bring immediately one general judgment of all
men, and usher in the eternal state!
volume sets forth in orderly and eminently readable fashion what most
Calvinistic teachers believer concerning 'the Second Advent and questions
related thereto.' With orthodox Christians of every age, the author holds
that our Lord's return will be personal, visible, sudden and unexpected,
glorious and triumphant. Of three views styled respectively
post-millennialism, pre-millennialism and non-millennialism, he advocates
the last named as scriptural and shows that it has been maintained by a
large majority of the Fathers and Reformers of the Church. In two valuable
chapters dealing with the interpretation of prophecy, he points out that
the literalist view leads logically to absurdities and is not adopted by
the writers of the New Testament, who specifically state that many of the
Old Testament predictions have been fulfilled, albeit in a spiritual sense
... A general consideration of N.T. teaching on the subject, is followed
by a more detailed review of the doctrine of the Gospels, Epistles and
Apocalypse, special attention being devoted to the significance of the
'millennium' of Revelation chapter 20. Here is a book that will well repay
study by those who seek to understand truth that is basic to Christian
faith and hope." (Peace and Truth).
