About "Three Views of the Millennium and Beyond (Counterpoints Series)"

This is a presentation of and interaction among the three main views on the end times held by evangelicals: Premillennial, postmillennial, and amillennial.
- Koorong

Are these the last days? Could Jesus return at any time to establish his thousand-year reign on earth? What is the nature of Christ's millennial kingdom referred to in the book of Revelation? What must happen before Jesus returns, and what part does the church play? Three predominant views held by evangelicals seek to answer these and related questions: premillennial, postmillennial, and amillennial. This book gives each view a forum for presentation, critique, and defense. Besides each contributor's personal perspective, various interpretations of the different positions are discussed in the essays. Three Views on the Millennium and Beyond lets you compare and contrast three important eschatological viewpoints to gain a better understanding of how Christianity's great hope, the return of Jesus, is understood by the church. The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians. Counterpoints books address two categories: Church Life and Bible and Theology. Complete your library with other books in the Counterpoints series.

Helpful discussion and debate on the question of the Millennium
5 stars By MatthewT, Mar 04 2016
The book presents essays and responses by three evangelical writers on their respective positions on the question of the millennium of Revelation 20. 
Finally, the general editor presents an essay with the goal of outlining the key issues - both areas of agreement and disagreement. 
All contributors clearly had a high view of Scripture and interacted respectfully.

The obvious value of this book is having the other writers immediately able to respond to each other's essays. This helps the reader better evaluate the argument presented. 
The weakness is the limited space does not allow for an extensive representation of each view.

Each of the essays were very good (all contributors have solid reputations within their views), although I found the postmillennial response to premillennialism clearer in his response than his main essay.

It is worth noting Blaising writes as a "progressive" dispensational premillennialist rather than a "traditional" dispensationalist. Also, historic premillennialism is not represented. 

Bock's editorial synthesis of points of agreement was very good and his chapter is actually worth reading first to better understand the overall arguments and what distinctions to look for.

The value of the book was reading the responses from each theologian to the other essays. 
Overall, reasonably academic, but well worth reading if wanting to further understand millennial positions.
