Waking Up

After teaching on the promises of God to Abraham (and to us) in my little Bible Study, I received this e-mail from one of the attendees:

"Many thanks, yet again my brother! I've never heard a view taught other than disp premill. I'm excited about searching His word to compare these [views]."

It's rewarding being the guy who gets to wake others up to the richness of historic Christianity. The problem of course is that I have so little knowledge of it. I'm like the boy among a hungry multitude who brings a little bread and fish to His Lord. He takes my bit of bread, blesses it abundantly, and is somehow able to satisfy those around me with it.

That's wonderful Tim! I hope your friend's study will be profitable. Maybe a book recommendation would be helpful for him?

He has asked for one from a postmill perspective. Where do you think he should start?

Postmillennialism: An Eschatology of Hope
by Keith A. Mathison

Keith is a friend & I know he needs diaper money. ;-)
Kidding aside, I haven't read this but everyone I know who has says it's excellent. I've read several other of Keith's books so I feel confident in recommending this one.
