Item description for The Coming of the Son of Man: New Testament Eschatology for an Emerging Church by Andrew Perriman...
Overview Following the powerful motif of the "coming of the Son of man" throughout the Bible from Daniel to Revelation, Andrew Perriman provides thought-provoking ideas about this eschatological narrative. What was it like to hear the biblical proclamation of this "coming" for the first time in a cultural, political and religious context very different from our own? How did early Christians think about the imminence of the promised apocalypse? This book engages the minds of jaded twenty-first century postmodernists who have "heard it all before". By seeing the fulfillment of much of New Testament apocalyptic in events of the first century, Perriman proposes that in some important sense we have moved beyond eschatology into an age of renewal. The Coming of the Son of Man is important reading for those who want to engage in the debate concerning what church is and will be.

A simply superb book on New Testament eschatology Aug 6, 2008
If I had the power to do so, I should compel every Christian to read this book. It is simply one of the best books on the subject of the prophetic ("second coming") passages in the New Testament. Focusing in Mattew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 and the Book of Revelation, Perriman presents a well written case for the past-fulfillment view of the events described in those verses. His use of analogies and illustrations were particularly helpful. This ia a great book...order it now!
