Dr. Charles Feinberg’s masterwork on the two major views of millennialism has been re-issued by BMH Books with updated graphics and is now available for shipping.
Millennialism: The Two Major Views, a 400-page paperback classic, carefully and systematically lays out the biblical interpretation systems for both the premillennial and amillennial views. In a foreword, Grace Theological Seminary founder Alva J. McClain says, “The author’s approach and method is primarily biblical; that is, his appeal is to Scripture rather than to subsequent church Fathers and scholarly opinion, although the latter is not ignored.”
“When one has finished this book,” McClain says, “he will see more clearly that the difference between Premillennialism and its opponents is no mere hair-splitting controversy of speculative theologians, but a dividing of paths which logically leads to two different systems of thought.”
The book of 20 chapters begins with a discussion of biblical interpretation, dispensationalism and covenantism, and then analyzes both the premillennial and amillennial systems of thought, ending with seven chapters of comparison and conclusion.
Used for decades as a text in conservative seminaries and Bible schools, the Feinberg book is enjoying a resurgence in popularity as serious Bible students study the classical biblical arguments on the issue.
Raised in an orthodox Jewish home, Charles Feinberg, who died in 1995, prepared for the rabbinate for 14 years prior to his conversion to Christ. Feinberg had two earned doctorates and a number of undergraduate and graduate degrees from a wide array of institutions.
He spent much of his career as dean and professor of Semitics and Old Testament at Talbot Theological Seminary in California. He was a charter member of the Evangelical Theological Society, authored a dozen books, and was a member of the Scofield Reference Bible Revision Committee.
