Re: Yes, it's a stonking review, and all the more surprising...


Yep, his review is now headed with 5*.

Glad to hear you've got it all worked out. You should write a book!

How about this for a review of Menn's masterpiece:

By Julianne Marie Powerson July 22, 2017
This book is by an Amillennialist. On top of that he uses replacement theology. I got tired of hearing the phrase Jesus' NT reinterpreted the OT prophecy...
 
Can you believe that? A professing Christian got tired of how her Saviour interprets OT prophecy! Unbelievable. If only she could see the irony in that. Personally, I'm convinced that if chiliasts paid more attention to how Jesus and the Apostles interpreted OT prophecy, and treated it with the authority and seriousness it deserves and demands, their blessed millennium would disappear in a puff of smoke right in front of their eyes.
 
I recall refreshed once asked me why chiliasm in one form or another dominates the US prophetic scene, whereas Finalism is dominant in the rest of the world. This keenly observed comment by Donald A. Hagner in his review of Middleton's book gives one possible answer:
It is no small irony that the majority of serious, Bible-believing Christians subscribe to a view of life in the eschaton that is fundamentally unbiblical. 
How very perceptive of him!
