Investigate logical and biblical arguments against alarmist, end-times paranoia. Many Christians believe the ills of society will be righted by an early and sudden destruction of the present world. Others say the Bible teaches that only a gradual process of arduous endeavor will usher in the final state. A treatise against premillennialism, Shirley Jackson Case’s The Millennial Hope is designed to combat “the fallacious and harmful character of teachings regarding the imminent end of the world.” Case examines the Egyptian, Babylonian, Persian, Greek, and Roman views of the final destiny of the world, then examines early and later Christian beliefs. His cautious argument introduces a voice of reason into the clamor of end-times debate.
