Making Sense of the Future
Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology is required reading in many courses on biblical theology—and with good reason. The textbook’s emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine, along with its clear writing, and contemporary approach make it an indispensable resource for many Christians.
This series presents, as a separate book, each of the seven main parts that make up the 1,600-page Systematic Theology, making it more portable, affordable, and less daunting.
Part 7—Making Sense of the Future explores the fulfillment of Scripture—the bodily return of Christ.
Important Topics Discuss the primary views of the Millennium (thousand years):
- Amillennialism—the reign of Christ is now being fulfilled.
- Postamillennialism—Christ will return after the millennium.
- Premillennialism—Christ will come back after the millennium.
Whichever view the reader subscribes to, the end result is clear: there will be a sudden, personal, visible, bodily return of Christ.
Written in a friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect, Making Sense of the Church helps readers overcome wrong ideas, make better decisions on new questions, and grow as Christians.
