Item description for Millennialism: The Two Major Views by Charles L. Feinberg...
Overview Millennialism: The Two Major Views, a 400-page paperback classic by Dr. Charles Feinberg, has just been re-issued by BMH Books and is now shipping. Feinberg carefully and systematically lays out the biblical interpretation systems for both the Premillennial and Amillennial views. 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." The book has 20 chapters, and the author begins with a discussion of biblical interpretation, dispensationalism and covenantism, and then analyzes both the premillennial and amillenial systems of thought, ending with seven chapters of comparison and conclusion.

Reviews - What do customers think about Millennialism: The Two Major Views?
Premillienial tract Nov 13, 2009
Feinberg has produced a 350-page argument for a dispensational understanding of scripture, not a study of "the two major views" of millenialism as the title asserts. The book does contain sections that address the millenium, but they appear secondary to the author's apparent intent to present arguments for the dispensationalist system as a whole. I was also disappointed to not find an exegesis of Revelation 20 from either the premillenial or amillenial position. Overall, a disappointment.
