Friends,

Seeking some advice.  I wanted some suggestions for good reading material on premillennialism.  My background is Sydney Anglican (Amill) but wanted to genuinely understand more of the premillennial interpretation of eschatology.  I covered the basics in seminary years ago, but wanted to some up to date focused reading.

I have read classic Amill stuff including Cox; and Beale's NIGNTC commentary.  Just starting on Ladd for a better understanding of Premill.  I am particularly interested in the historical origins of all eschatological positions.  I have also read Bloomberg & Chung, The Case for Historic Premillenialism.

The purpose of this enquiry is not to start a debate, but to understand my premillennialism friends.

Leaving you in God's Care and Grace

Understanding others is always a worthy endeavor.

"The Footsteps of the Messiah" (Fruchtenbaum) has a thorough treatment of pre-trib, pre-millennium.

I've read this. This is a great recommendation. I also really like that it goes over the preterist position - many resources skip this position.

Agreed Josh.

My study was in this context - I was going to be studying the Book of Revelaton and had heard enough preterist commentary on it to actually wonder if my initial position about it ("that's not biblical!") was correct - so I undertook the book study with two resources:

- Gregg, already mentioned -  this was aso for the benefit of my small group - they could decide for themselves which they agreed with!

The Parousia, by J.S. Russell, also available in Logos - he's considered one of the "fathers" of preterism, as it were.

WOW - What.An.Eye.Opener.

Not only was my initial assessment of Preterism completely wrong (in the sense that I had misunderstood what they were talking about) but his arguments for the biblical nature of the position, quite frankly, blew my mind, not to mention the fact that this man wrote beautifully and elegantly so it was a pleasure to read, in particular, the Introduction, an overview of the book of Malachi and how it leads into the gospels. Magnificent.

I highly commend it to everyone, whether they agree with Preterism or not.

It is a long read, but in my estimation, one of the best classic studies is the three volume set by George N. H. Peters, The Theocratic Kingdom. Logos has it available in both the three volume and a single volume (digital file which includes the three volumes). I have and use both. I recommend the 3 volume edition for accuracy. I use the single-file edition for ease of searching through the three volumes at once.

Not in Logos, but absolutely ought to be, is Dwight Pentecost's large volume, Things to Come. This is a strange omission from Logos resources. Logos carries many of Pentecost's other works, but has never included this one, arguably his most famous.
