As we near the close of our series on eschatological themes, I wanted to give a few resources that I have either used or at least recommend on various topics for your further study. The first two are actually videos of presentations on the topic, which can either be watched online or downloaded in audio or video format. From there I am going to give a few books on key topics.
An Evening of Eschatology – John Piper gathered three theologians who agreed on the essentials but held differing views of the millennium and held a 2 hour discussion and debate. Great stuff and worth the watch. You can download here, or watch here:
Secret Church by David Platt on Heaven, Hell, and the End of the World by David Platt – Over four hours of amazing material on this subject. The study guide is 200+ pages. Covers most of the topics form our sermons and a lot more. Take time to watch and study.
Books on End Times Views and Revelation
I’ve really enjoyed a few books written to give readers multiple views on interpretations of eschatology approaches and views of the millennium.
Four Views on the Book of Revelation edited by Gundry and Pate
Revelation: Four Views, a Parallel Commentary edited by Steve Gregg
The Meaning of the Millennium, Four Views Edited by Robert G. Clouse
The Restoration of All Things by Sam Storms, from Gospel Coalition books
Heaven and Hell
Is Hell for Real or Does everyone Go to Heaven? – If you have questions on this topic, I want to highly recommend this book. Contributors include Tim Keller, Albert Mohler, and J. I. Packer.
The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis. Mentioned and quoted this book on sermons on heaven and hell, this is Lewis’s fictional allegory telling story of bus of people who come to heaven from hell. Amazing insights.
Erasing Hell by Francis Chan
