Baker A Case for Amillennialism

Amillennialism, dispensational premillennialism, historic premillennialism, postmillennialism, preterism. These are difficult words to pronounce and even harder concepts to understand. A Case for Amillennialism presents an accessible look at the crucial theological question of the millennium in the context of contemporary evangelicalism. This study defends amillennialism as the historic Protestant understanding of the millennial age. Amillennarians believe that the millennium of Christ's heavenly reign is a present reality, not a future hope to come after his return. Recognizing that eschatology, the study of future things, is a complicated and controversial subject, Riddlebarger provides definitions of key terms and a helpful overview of various viewpoints. He examines related biblical topics as a backdrop to understanding the subject and discusses important passages of Scripture that bear upon the millennial age, including Daniel 9, Matthew 24, Romans 11, and Revelation 20. Regardless of their stance, readers will find helpful insight as Riddlebarger evaluates the main problems facing each of the major millennial positions and cautions readers to be aware of the spiraling consequences of each view.

I was expecting this book to be overall negative. That is, a critique of opposing views containing some affirmations of amillennialism. I was wrong. This is a very positively stated Biblical case for the amillennial position. Definitely the best book I've read on the millennium.

Kim Riddlebarger handles his case very well. A very thorough defense for Amillenialism and a must read for anyone who is seriously studying eschatology. Highly recommended.

A very comprehensive book on amillenial theology. This tackles all millenial views and evaluates their strengths and weaknesses. Though I've been dispensational for many years, this helped me reconsider my position. This is one of the books I obtained about amillenialism which brought me to question many details and "novelties" of modern-day dispensationalism.

After being taught a dispensationalist perspective on the end times for most my life, I began to see that what I was taught was not always squaring with what I was reading in scripture. This book outlined all the major end times views and related them to how well they fit with what the whole of scripture says. Many of the doubts and struggles I was having are addressed head on in this book. I was comforted to find that many of the conclusions I was coming to from my own study of the word had already been arrived at by others throughout the history of the church. This book was well written and easy to understand (although I greatly benefited from having my Bible at hand and taking notes). Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to honestly look again at what the Bible says about Christ's return and reign.

Clear, concise, and accurate. Kim Riddlebarger has given an outstanding explanation of the biblical view of the end times. As a former dispensationalist, Kim knows what arguments dispensational Christians bring to the table. While advocating the Biblical view of Amillenialism, Kim fairly treats the other viewpoints with many quotes from experts within those beliefs, while still showing the flaws that each viewpoint carries. If a lay person were to have only one book on the end times in their library, this would be the one to own!

A terrific book! Well written with a good and sound biblical presentation for the amill position. A necessary antidote to some of the "last day madness" we see in the church. Sadly, I expect the "Left Behind" crowd will have fits with the book--but will not bother with reading it or struggling with the arguments Kim makes from scripture. Nevertheless, I will recommend this book to friends. Well done, Kim!
