Reviews - What do customers think about He Shall Have Dominion: A Postmillennial Eschatology?

Important millennial study  Apr 23, 2004
This book is a thorough analysis of the doctrine of eschatology. Gentry deals with exegetical, historical, and practical issues that flow from academically-oriented eschatology. He even has three chapters on objections to his biblical postmillennialism.

If you want to understand the hope-filled, future-oriented eschatology known as postmillennialism. This is the book to get.

Heretical Creedalism!!!  Apr 20, 2004
Standard for Postmillennialism  Jun 3, 2003
Gary North stated that this book is the book one must tackle in order to disprove Postmillennialism. North is right, this book is just that good. Unlike most eschatological books which deal with the exegetical and hermenuetical issues, this book looks at the philosophy of history of Postmillennialism and contrasts that with the pessimistic millennial views (dispensational premil, amil, and historic premil).

From creation to consummation, Gentry shows God's underlying plan for redemptive history, showing it is one of victory and not of gloom. No other author, that I know of, has produced a work like Gentry's, by dealing with the philosophy of history of particular millennial positions. Nor have I seen any dispensational or amillennial scholar respond to Gentry's thesis in a respectable booklength and scholarly manner.

This book will be the master guide for all postmillennial defenders.

Scholarly and Straightforward Theology of Postmillennialism  Jan 24, 2002
I have read a number of Gentry's writings, and this one is the best so far. It is the only integrated postmillennial eschatology I have found to date. It is a must-read for end times scholars, but would be rather weighty for most other believers.

Gentry introduces his work by speaking of the significance of eschatology, showing its relation to all other areas of theology. He comes across as somewhat condescending, unfortunately, in his assessement of all other millennial views as "pessimistic." On this very complex and controversial Biblical topic, an ability to agree to disagree MUST be cultivated.

Gentry shows how postmillennialism is weaved into all aspects of Biblical history with five chapters on creation, anticipation, realization, expansion, and consummation. Each chapter is filled with Scripture references. Gentry allows the Bible to speak for itself, and does not try to impose his theological system upon it. The author then moves to various eschatological themes and characters, interpreting each in the light of postmillennialism.

An added bonus is the inclusion of a brief commentary on the book of Revelation. He addresses various concepts and characters in Revelation, then skims through the book chapter by chapter. Gentry closes with a response to several common objections that have been raised to postmillennialism.

This work is more like a textbook, and is definitely NOT light reading. Having made those two points, however, this volume IS very readable for its scope and size. For the scholar or the pastor, this book is a great investment providing a thorough explanation and solid defense of postmillennialism.

Good comparison of postmillennialism to other eschatologies  Dec 5, 2001
Having read Gentry's "Before Jerusalem Fell" and leaning toward a preteristic approach to Revelation, I was prepped to abandon all the dispy ideas I'd absorbed growing up under a Dallas Seminary-trained pastor. Gentry does a good job of explaining the issue, showing the points of dispute and different interpretations between dispensationalism/premillennialism, amillennialism, and postmillennialism. It's hinted at throughout the book--and blatantly obvious in the appendices--that Gentry believes that postmillennialism directly leads to the acceptance of theonomy and perhaps the Christian Reconstruction movement, which prescribes Old Covenant law as the basis for civil governments. He did a fine job of showing the many errors in dispensationalism and gave good reason to prefer postmillennialism over amillennialism, but I am left without a satisfying explanation as to why a victorious Kingdom of God on earth equals the continuance of the Law. The NT view of the Law is a complex issue, not to be dealt with by merely shooting down a bad argument in an appendix. I wish Gentry would have either left the theonomy issue out of the book completely or given a more comprehensive description of how it necessarily complements postmillennialism and how this might practically be approached in the present days.
