1. POSTMILLENNIAL BOOKS


He Shall Have Dominion smallHe Shall Have Dominion: A Postmillennial Eschatology
618 pp.; Paperback
For more information or to order: Click here

Under the gracious sway of his gospel, Christ will cause “the righteous to flourish” (72:7) and bring “peace to the people” (Psa. 72:5). Resulting from this righteousness and peace will come “abundance” and “flourishing” prosperity in all the earth (72:16). Ultimately, “all nations [will] call him blessed” (72:17) so that “the whole earth [will] be filled with his glory” (72:19).

Such is the postmillennial hope. Christ will return after millennial conditions prevail upon the earth (hence, post-millennialism), not before them (as in the popular pre-millennial system). The millennial blessings arise under the influence of the gospel, not because of Armageddon.

In this book you will find the classic, thorough biblical rationale for postmillennialism, from its incipient beginning in Genesis to its glorious conclusion in Revelation.

Is the Great Commission understood properly today? Is its full import comprehended by Christ’s people? That is, do Christians really grasp The Greatness of the Great Commission? These are important questions for both the contemporary church and modern culture. In this book you will find the case for a comprehensive program of salvation in time and on earth. Read this work to understand The Greatness of the Great Commission. The Great Commission is Christ’s postmillennial marching orders to his church. It fueled the early growth of Christianity in a hostile world, and can fuel the church today. If obeyed.

ThineKingdomThine Is the Kingdom
Ed. by Kenneth Gentry
264 pp. Paperback
For more information or to order: Click here

Thine is the Kingdom lays the scriptural foundation for a biblically-based, hope-filled postmillennial eschatology, while showing what it means to be postmillennial in the real world. The book is both an introduction to and defense of the eschatology of victory.

Chapters include contemporary writers Keith A. Mathison, William O. Einwechter, Jeffrey Ventrella, and Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr., as well as chapters by giants of the faith Benjamin B. Warfield and J. A. Alexander. This work should prove immensely helpful for understanding and defending the postmillennial hope. It should also enliven our prayer to God as we faithfully pray: “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven” for “thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”

In this Zondervan Counterpoint Series book Gentry, Craig Blaising, and Robert Strimple present three views on the millennium: progressive dispensationalist, amillennialist, and reconstructionist postmillennialist viewpoints. Includes separate responses to each view.

Regarding my chapter, Craig Keener writes: “A careful articulation of the postmillennial perspective” (Craig S. Keener, Revelation: The NIV Application Commentary , 472).

Olivet Discourse EZOlivet Discourse Made Easy
152 pp. Paperback
For more information or to order: Click here

Christ’s teaching on the great tribulation has long intrigued and transfixed Christians. This is especially true in the modern evangelical church today. What Bible-believing Christian has not been alarmed by Christ’s prophetic warning about a time in which men will experience “wars and rumors of wars” (Matt 24:6)? “Famines and earthquakes” (Matt 24:7)? “False prophets” who “will mislead many” (Matt 24:10)? These are fearsome images presented by our Lord to his people.

In this work the reader will find thirteen evidences that Matt 24:34-36 is transitioning from an AD 70 focus to the future Second Advent. This material serves as an important corrective to two errors: (1) Many scholars teach that Jesus mixes the two events together in such a way that it is difficult to sort out which elements of the Discourse belong to AD 70 and which belong to the Second Advent. (2) Some writers see the whole of the Discourse focusing only on AD 70, overlooking the fact that Jesus is answering two questions his disciples pose in Matt 24:3.

When Shall These ThingsWhen Shall These Things Be? A Reformed Response to Hyperpreterism
Ed by Keith Mathison
For more information or to order: Click here

Keith Mathison has edited this important work from P & R Publishing which provides a reformed response to the aberrant HyperPreterist theolgy. Dr. Gentry’s chapter critiques HyperPreterism from an historical and creedal perspective, showing that it is outside historic Christian orthodoxy and is dangerously close to be developing a cult.


3. REVELATION BOOKS


Before Jerusalem Fell BOOKBefore Jerusalem Fell: Dating the Book of Revelation
459 pp. Paperback
For more information or to order: Click here

For centuries scholars have argued over when the book of Revelation was written a few years before or a quarter century after the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70. The most accepted but not the most compelling date is around the time of Domitian (A.D. 95-96), at the end of the first century when John would have been nearly 100 years old. A more compelling date for the writing is during the reign of Nero Caesar, just a few years before Jerusalem’s destruction at the hands of the Roman commander Titus.

The evidence for this conclusion is found within the pages of Scripture. The Bible itself tells us when the Book of Revelation was written. We do not have to depend on people who wrote a hundred years or more after the fact to get the accurate story. God’s own Word sets the record straight. Through careful and painstaking work, Dr. Gentry deals with all the evidence. He weighs all the arguments.

Book of Revelation Made EasyBook of Revelation Made Easy
157 pp. Paperback
For more information or to order: Click here

This book is an extremely valuable introduction to Revelation. It is designed with the average Christian in mind. The material arose from years of lectures on Revelation in conferences and in a college setting, as well as while researching a full-length commentary on Revelation.

In this brief work you will discover an in-depth study of Revelation 1:7 as the theme of Revelation showing that it points to the AD 70 judgment of Israel for rejecting the Messiah. You will also learn how Jerusalem aligned herself with Rome to persecute Christians, becoming the Great Harlot. Much documentary evidence shows that Revelation was fulfilled in the first century destruction of the Temple, which concluded the old covenant economy and closed out the typological worship in the temple.

Navigating RevelationNavigating the Book of Revelation: Special Studies on Important Issues
211 pp. Paperback
For more information or to order: Click here

In this work you will see how John put on the mantle of the Old Testament prophet to confront Israel in her rebellion. You will understand his anger with Israel, paralleling John the Baptist, Jeremiah, Isaiah, and Ezekiel.

You will learn how he denounces Israel for her persecuting Christians and how he “excommunicates” the temple as an idol for Israel. You will learn much about Israel’s involvement with Rome against young Christianity. You will also find answers to perplexing questions, such as: “Why did John send such a Hebraic book to Asian Christians?”

Special Note

I recommend that you buy two of each title. That way you can see if I am consistent. (If this marketing ploy works I’ll live like a king!)
