Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very balanced and easy to understand  Mar 21, 2008
Dr. Erikson presents four competing views of end times theology, providing arguments both for and against each view. Although Erickson is historic premillennial, he presents a very unbiased description of each view in a fairly easy to read format. This is an great starting point for those who want to investigate the different end times positions. It has received excellent reviews from the evangelical community.
 
Making sense of Erickson  Jan 21, 2008
Millard Erickson has done a fantastic job of giving an objective overview of the different positions of the end times. He tells his position in the conclusion of the book, but with a careful reading his position can be determined throughout the book. He gives a basic overview of each position and some history before telling their strengths and weaknesses. The problem comes in with some of the language he uses in this book. If the reader has no background in Kione Greek (Biblical Greek), then there are many sections that will be aggravating to the reader and they might become discouraged, because Erickson has assumed the reader to have a basic understanding and comprehension of Greek. Overall this is a fantastic book.
 
A Basic Guide tp Eschatology  Sep 28, 2007
It was a very informative writing. I was enlightened by all of the different views on end times. The book came on time which is very important because I am in school. Thank you.
 
Great Overview  May 9, 2005
Erickson does an excellent job of presenting various Eschatological views on the the Millenium and return of Christ. For each of the major views he presents a brief summary, history, the basic arguement for the position and its advantages and disadvantages. He presents each position from such a balanced perspective that one does not even know what his own view is until the very end.

My only disapointment with the book and the reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is that he barely even mentions the preterist view, as if it is not even worth considering.
 
Informative, Organized, and Balanced  May 2, 2000
What I appreciate most about this book is its organization. In particular, part 2 of the book, the various millennial positions, employs these subheadings for each chapter: Overview, History, Tenets, and Evaluation (both positive and negative); since each view uses the same subheadings, it allows for easy comparison. Part 1 of the book, Background Views, was interesting reading; however, I didn't see how it connected with parts 2 and 3. Then again, I confess I haven't read widely in this field. I thought the presentation of each of the millennial views was more clear in this book than in Clouse's "The Meaning of the Millenium," although I enjoyed and recommend that book, as well.
