Utter NONSENSE and DRIVEL! CULT thinking at it's best! Jun 9, 2006
Folks, PLEASE come back down to reality! MORTAL MEN (not some imaginary 'god') wrote ALL religious books, tomes, and manuscripts. How many times in history have simpleton religious nutcases screamed and pleaded that Jesus was coming, only to see his 'date of return' pass by uneventfully?! This ridiculous, simplistic, infantile, and masturbatory book is no exception! Fanatical, blind religious fervor and fanaticism is the cause of most of this world's problems (divisiveness, hate, and violence) to begin with. If you can't think for yourself logically or intelligently, buy this book. The rest of us will live life based on reality and reason. Wake up people!
How Firm A Foundation ! May 12, 2006
Dr. Grant Jeffrey has submitted yet another invaluable study of eschatology that places this book among the important reference works of our time.
Remarkably, that has been true of each of Dr. Jeffrey's books this reviewer has had the pleasure of reading.
As the world hurtles downward into chaos, great comfort is derived from examining the detailed development of end-time prophecy confirming the trajectory, which is after all merely the adumbration of Our Blessed Hope!
And Jeffrey is a master at amassing delectable insights from the ages to establish documented authoritative positions to behold.
The author opens stressing the importance of the Second Coming, and niftily weaves that golden thread throughout 'Triumpant Return', citing historical works from the early centuries as stepping stones to our present day.
His helpful chapter on understanding prophecy displays the reality that Christians truly do possess '...a more sure word...' (II Peter : 1:19}
Paul's admonition to 'comfort one another with these words.' finds fruitful bounty in 'Triumphant Return.'
All who are longing for yet higher ground will find paths winding loftily upward in this treatise based on His firm foundation.

With All Due Respect... Feb 28, 2003
Being in bible school I had to read this book for my eschatology class. As much as I like Dr Jeffery the person I disagree with many of the teachings in this book. Dr Jeffery is only sharing about what he has personally been taught and come to understand. As much as I do agree about a millenial reign here on earth, I do not think this book would be a firm foundation for doctrine.
I personally do not recommend this book other then to those who wanna learn about other people's "personal" view point. Remember the only doctrine that a Christian should have and hold on to is Gods doctrine with the interpatation that comes from the Holy Spirit.
A solid historical refutation of the preterist viewpoint Oct 25, 2001
In today's eschatological quagmire, too many "nominal" churchgoers have some passing interest in prophecy material, but are unable to separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to analyzing the various positions to determine which one truly gives the correct Biblical perspective. The dispensationalist, pre-millenial position, while held by many, is often not defended rationally by those who hold it when confronted by arguments given against it. This is not the case with Grant Jeffrey. Again and again in his various books, he makes the solid case for holding to the proper viewpoint of pre-millenialism. One effective way he does this is to rightly strip the opposing viewpoints of one of their alleged "weapons": the historical information provided by early church writers. Jeffrey shows in this book that the early church recognized that the book of Revelation was not written until the last decade of the first century A.D. This fact by itself destroys the whole preterist perspective, because preterism, even by the admission of its adhereants, cannot stand if Revelation appeared after 70 A.D. Jeffrey gives sincere believers seeking real answers to the main issues of eschatology the kind of historical information that other pre-millenial writers rarely present. This kind of information by itself makes the book a very good resource for those who have become confused by the claims of a-millenialists that the pre-millenialist perspective is "a recent invention" by a small handful of prophecy writers.

The book demonstrates that dispensationalism, which it tries to defend, is clearly on the run from those espousing a preterist viewpoint of Revelation. The book misrepresents the writings of the late David Chilton and other preterists by countless times stating that they do not believe in a literal Second Coming of Christ. In Chapter 15 of Chilton's "Paradise Restored" a clear presentation of a belief in the Second Coming is declared. Jeffrey levels ineffective attacks against Augustine and covenant theologians and displays his Arminian stripes throughout using "straw man" arguments to undermine their positions. The book succumbs to a type of date setting by redefining the Biblical "generation." Since their 40-year definition has proven an embarrassment (the Second Advent has not occurred 40 years since the establishment of Israel in 1948), dispensationalists must now formulate a new definition of 70-80 years to set the date in our near future (apparently no later than 2028). Rather than taking this author's word for it that preterism is in error, please read Chilton's "Days of Vengeance," an outstanding commentary on Revelation. You will find that Chilton arguments trump Jeffrey's at every turn.
