Overview

Properly teaching on the end times is a valuable service to the church. In this collection, Keith A. Mathison defends a robust reformed perspective on eschatology, comparing these beliefs with a plurality of other perspectives. In his discussion, he explains errors of dispensationalists and the inherent difficulties of the “full preterist” position. He positively addresses a postmillennial approach to eschatology, aiding church leaders with the task of guiding their congregations in a faithful and forward-looking way.

This concise examination of dispensationalism dispels much current confusion on this topic. Mathison engages the debate by clarifying the most central and problematic teachings of dispensationalists. His guidance and concerns are helpfully presented in the light of Scripture and historic Reformed theology.

. . . a clear introduction to the essential issues that divide dispensational theology from the classical Reformed orthodoxy. . . . a valuable tool for the lay person.

—R.C. Sproul

The reviewer has read a number of books on this theme . . . none more lucid and helpful than this.

The Banner of Truth

Those who follow Reformed theology will appreciate the author’s careful and clear presentation; those who believe in classical dispensationalism will not agree. . . . Yet both groups will gain new insight into the Word.

From Age to Age: The Unfolding of Biblical Eschatology

  • Author: Keith A. Mathison
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 832

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

“For those schooled in the likes of Vos, Ridderbos, and Kline, the apprehension of eschatology broadly conceived is like Dorothy’s move from black-and-white Kansas to Technicolor Oz,” says Michael Glodo of Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando. “But for too long this gift has been the buried talent of its modest circle of possessors. Keith Mathison goes a long way in unearthing this gift in From Age to Age.”

Although books on eschatology often focus on the second coming of Christ and the millennium, a complete study of biblical eschatology must include Christ’s first advent, which inaugurated the last days. It must also include a study of God’s preparations throughout redemptive history for the eschatological first advent of Christ.

From Age to Age looks not only at the consummation of God’s redemptive-historical purposes at the end of history, but also at their unfolding stages. Using the narrative method of biblical theology, Mathison traces the eschatological themes of Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, emphasizing how each book of the Bible develops these themes, which culminate in the coming of Christ.

Filling a crucial gap, From Age to Age is simultaneously sweeping in its scope, deeply informed on the specifics, and so readable that I’ll be recommending this as the book to give to any Christian who asks me for an overview of the Bible. If you read, meditate on, and inwardly digest From Age to Age, you will have a deeper, richer, and fresher appreciation of the greatest story ever told.

—Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

Meticulously comprehensive, this veritable compendium of biblical theology from Genesis to Revelation examines every possible nuance of eschatological insight. Mathison has provided us with an invaluable reference tool, a tour de force unlike any other on this hugely significant topic.

—Derek W.H. Thomas, John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, MS

Mathison ambitiously surveys the whole Bible book by book, yet with substantial detail at some of the most critical points and does so with scholarly care, exegetical soundness, and philosophical breadth. Where one might vary from individual conclusions here and there, his survey of options is representative and his analysis well argued. Scholars, pastors, students, and learned laypeople need this kind of analysis, which relates a unified, coherent—albeit variegated—history of redemption and reminds the broader church that God is the Lord of time.

—Michael J. Glodo, associate professor of biblical studies, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, FL

A survey of the Bible that does not lose the forest for the trees. On the one hand, Mathison analyzes each book with careful attention to exegetical and critical issues. On the other hand, he identifies the entire canon’s contribution to the grand biblical theme of promise and fulfillment. I do not know of a more accessible and up-to-date introduction to the Bible from a Reformed perspective.

—John Muether, librarian and associate professor of church history, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, FL

Postmillennialism: An Eschatology of Hope

  • Author: Keith A. Mathison
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 304

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The promises of the gospel offer hope of a brighter future for the families and nations of the earth. Mathison offers an optimistic eschatology supported by biblical, historical, and theological considerations. This presentation examines modern and historic ideas about the end times with care and concern for properly interpreting the testimony of Scripture.

Keith Mathison provides the church an apologetic for ‘an eschatology of hope’ that is thoroughly biblical, soundly evangelical, impressively thorough, logically structured, and easily understandable. The Christian community should gladly welcome this sane and hope-filled exposition.

—Kenneth L. Gentry Jr.

This book is a must read for those who follow the current debate regarding the various schools of preterist and postmillennial thought. It is balanced, insightful, and provocative.

—R.C. Sproul

When Shall These Things Be?: A Reformed Response to Hyper-Preterism

  • Editor: Keith A. Mathison
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 354

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

“Full Preterists,” contending that all biblical prophecy was fulfilled in the first century, have gained an avid following for their eschatological views. This volume answers many questions, with an emphasis on determining whether their zeal for the past fulfullment of all prophecy does justice to the full promise of Scripture concerning the end times. Topics include:

  • Has the Great Commission been fulfilled?
  • Has Christ finally returned?
  • Are we now living in the new heavens and new earth?
  • Have death and hades been thrown into the lake of fire?
  • Is there no future bodily resurrection?

This volume critically examines the views of Max King, Timothy King, Ed Stevens, John Noe, and others on such issues. Keith Mathison enlists the scholarship of Kenneth Gentry, Charles Hill, Richard Pratt, Simon Kistemaker, Douglas Wilson, and Robert Strimple to affirm Christ’s future return, the resurrection of our bodies, the final judgment, and our eternal hope.
