A Nice Review of A Case for Amillennialism

Here's a nice review of my book, A Case for Amillennialism.

The reviewer is Rev. Wes Bredenhof (a co-laborer in the Canadian Reformed Church--who also serves on the CanRC committee on Liturgical Forms, while I chair the URCNA equivalent).  Be sure to check out Wes' fine blog as well.

Wes Bredenhof is a good authority for reviews. As somewhat of a connoissuer of sermons around the web, I can definitely recommend that Wes's opinions are good. I have listened to a good many sermons of his and I've found them all quite helpful. There are several different places to find Wes's works, but I only have one of them bookmarked for some reason. Here is one of the places his sermons may be found--

If you search around, you'll find more.

In calling the present reality "The Millennium" you are either guilty of using the word "Millennium" as a connotation word, something Francis Schaeffer warned us against, or else you are demeaning the word "Millennium". In the first case, you retain the good meaning of the word "Millennium" but distort our perception of reality by supposing it to be the Millennium. In the latter case, you retain your knowledge of the reality of the present situation, but you then lower the meaning of the Millennium down to it.

The only way to avoid both of these distortions is to jettison the notion of a "realized" millennium now and to return to the original meaning of amillennialism, namely "without a millennium". Let's stop kidding ourselves. What we got now in no way is the Millennium!! Either you got to be kidding or if you are not, then, "If this is the Millenniium, then what is so great about the Millennium?"

Forrest, what else can we call a period described (albeit symbolically) as lasting a thousand years (Rev. 20:1-6)? A pickled onion?
