From the list on Biblical eschatology that are understandable and not nuts.
Who am I?
I am the director of Equipping Church Leaders-East Africa. East African church leaders (and most Christians everywhere) are interested in eschatology (the study of the “last things”). I have been fascinated by this subject for decades, particularly since I attended a church that took eschatology seriously. After a time, however, I realized that something was amiss in that pastor’s understanding of eschatology. That motivated me to study eschatology on my own and begin compiling an extensive library on the subject. While pursuing my M.Div. at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, I wrote two major papers on the subject and now have written the most comprehensive synthesis on biblical eschatology currently available.
Jonathan's book list on Biblical eschatology that are understandable and not nuts
Why did Jonathan love this book?
One of the best ways to deal with controversial subjects is the “point-counterpoint” method of having a proponent of each major view state his or her own position and then be critiqued by proponents of other views. The Meaning of the Millennium: Four Views does just that, utilizing the following proponents: George Eldon Ladd, historic premillennialism; Herman Hoyt, dispensational premillennialism; Loraine Boettner, postmillennialism; and Anthony Hoekema, amillennialism. The book is compact enough so as not to be intimidating for the general reader, yet the major points of each view and critique are sufficiently articulated. While this is a good introduction to the subject, Hoyt’s and Boettner’s presentations are, in my opinion, considerably weaker than Ladd’s and Hoekema’s.
