In The Millennial Maze, Stanley J. Grenz provides historical and biblical, as well as theological, perspective on the four positions held by evangelicals - postmillennialism, dispensational premillennialism, historic premillennialism and amillennialism. Assessing the strengths and weaknesses of each position, he seeks to cut a new path through the maze that reaffirms the valid insights of each and sounds a fresh note of hope in an age of shattered illusions.
As an added bonus, readers will find that Grenz takes note of some of the latest developments in the dialog between dispensationalists and covenant theologians. The result has been some modifications in long-held positions that have brought the two groups closer.

Review 1 for Millennial Maze
Date:February 2, 2007
Very accurate overview of most of the issues surrounding the millenium issues in biblical eschatology. I must confess that I don't understand the negative review given by another reviewer. This book is well researched, level headed, and carefully thought out in it's exploration of the subjects.

Review 2 for Millennial Maze
Date:July 10, 2002
The first third of the book was acceptable, but after that, the book spiraled down into a false representation of the facts, and an unsupported presentation of arguments. How often should we take his word for facts without documentation? Who holds this opinion, and when? I found it manipulative and dishonest and this from a professor of ethics and theology. There is no room for this kind of hateful, arrogant attitude among Christian brethren.
