In this major new book on one of the key eschatology texts of scripture, prolific author Don K. Preston provides a positive, in-depth exegesis of 1 Thessalonians 4:13f. Preston shows that a linguistic, grammatical, contextual analysis of Paul’s text actually falsifies all future expectations of a bodily coming of Christ at the end of the Christian age! Preston presents a linguistic analysis that is a theological atom bomb exploding all futurist eschatologies. This is powerful stuff!
In addition, Preston also interacts with the major dispensationalists of the day, proving that the rapture doctrine is not supported by Thessalonians. It is in fact refuted!
Finally, this major work interacts with the leading opponents of Covenant Eschatology, i.e. preterism, Kenneth Gentry and Keith Mathison. This book is a powerful response and refutation of Gentry’s revised (2009) He Shall Have Dominion, and Mathison’s tome, From Age To Age, the Unfolding of Biblical Eschatology (2009). Preston carefully, logically and powerfully answers the critics. This material is not found anywhere else!
