Sergius Bulgakov, The Bride of the Lamb

Bulgakov, Sergius.  Bride of the Lamb.  Eerdmans. This isn’t a normal review.  It’s mostly a collection and analysis of his most important points.  This is the best thing ever written on eschatology in the sense of final judgment, life-after-death, etc. Bulgakov … Continue reading

The Case for Historic Premillennialism (Review)

Borrow this book; don’t buy it. I write this as someone sympathetic with historic premillennialism, but the essays are woefully uneven. The first few dealing with its Hebraic background are quite good. The essay on Ezekiel notes how prophetic language … Continue reading

Tensions in preterism

I posted an article on facebook where I quoted GK Beale acknowledging some problems in his take on amillennialism.  Nothing noteworthy. It’s called scholarship 101 and I commend Beale for it. The post got sidetracked with “not all amillennialism” and … Continue reading

3 Views on the Rapture

Pre-Tribulation Argument Key argument: God has not only exempted the church from God’s wrath, but from the season of God’s wrath (Feinberg 58, 63). Feinberg’s key argument is that Revelation 3:10 means that God will keep the church out of … Continue reading

Van Kampen, Robert.  The Rapture Question Answered. Although this is not a scholarly book, it is very well-written.  Even for those not of a premillennial persuasion, I encourage everyone to read it.  Van Kampen outlines a number of problems with pretribulationism, … Continue reading

Zechariah 14 is future event

Klein, George.  Zechariah (NAC). Klein argues persuasively that the events in chapter 14 must be future. (1) Numerous statements in chapter 14 have no equivalent in history (398). “God will gather all nations against Jerusalem” (v2) It will be a unique … Continue reading

Reflections on Hitchcock/Hanegraff Debate

Hitchcock: strong opening statement. External case: all early witnesses attest to a mid-90s date. The letters to the seven churches show no Pauline influence, yet Paul founded several of them in the mid to late 50s. If Revelation were written … Continue reading

Exo-Vaticana

Summary of argument (80).  Because only a small percentage of UFOs are extraordinary, the rest are intentional hoaxes or natural phenomena.   The language of UFO discourse is obtus, perhaps deliberately so. To clarify, the authors are not arguing that extra-terrestrials … Continue reading

3 Views on the Rapture

Though the book is dated (pre-wrath has replaced mid-tribulationism), it remains valuable for a number of reasons.  Reiter’s essay on the development of American premillennialism is worth the price of the book. Many have a tendency to lump all premils … Continue reading

Developing an Enochian Worldview

Some of these are inspired by Dr Michael Heiser’s writings, though much of it came from my own working through both the Scriptures and tradition.  Our problem is that we are all students of Dante, whether we admit it or … Continue reading
