'This little volume sets forth in orderly and eminently readable fashion what most Calvinistic teachers believe 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 New Testament 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.'

Review 1 for The Momentous Event
sanity and sobriety in biblical 'end times' study
Date:January 28, 2012
simply put, this little book is a truly biblical (and sane) treatment and exposition of "end times" events and subjects related. excellent study. also check out In God's Time by Craig C. Hill. forget about all the left behind series whacky nonsense, and get into some biblically sound and realistic teachings.

Review 2 for The Momentous Event

This is a very good primer on amillennialism!! The author systematically and logically argues his case using scripture and church history to support "non-millennialism," and comparatively critiques the other millennial views. It is very readable and convincing!! I highly recommend this small volume to anyone interested in studying the non-millenial perspective of the Lord's momentous return to earth!!
