A Case for Amillennialism, Expanded Edition: Understanding the End Times

, 2013
ISBN: 9781441222244



In a clear and accessible manner, Kim Riddlebarger presents and defends amillennialism—the belief that the millennium is a present reality centered in Christ’s heavenly reign, not a future hope of Christ’s rule on earth after his return—as the historic Protestant understanding of the millennial age. Recognizing that eschatology—the study of future things—is a complicated and controversial subject, Riddlebarger begins with definitions of key terminology and an overview of various viewpoints and related biblical themes. He then discusses key passages of Scripture that bear upon the millennial age, including Daniel 9, Matthew 24, Romans 11, and Revelation 20. Finally, he evaluates the main problems facing each of the major millennial positions and cautions us to be aware of the consequences of each view.
