When Shall These Things be? counters the view of “full preterism,” which contends that all biblical prophecy was fulfilled in the first century. Although the full preterist (or hyper-preterist) view has gained an avid following for its eschatology, this volume questions whether such a view does justice to the full promise of Scripture concerning the end times. Such questions relating to the fulfillment of the Great Commission, Christ’s final return, and a future bodily resurrection may prove difficult for hyper-preterism to answer. Contributors such as Kenneth Gentry, Charles Hill, Richard Pratt, Simon Kistemaker, and Douglas Wilson critically examine hyper-preterist views, affirming Christ’s future return, the resurrection of our bodies, the final judgment, and our eternal hope.
