An Evening of Eschatology

Here is a somewhat interesting round table discussion on the doctrine of last things, with particular emphasis on the different millennial positions. The discussion is led by John Piper; Jim Hamilton represents Premillennialism; Doug Wilson represents Postmillennialsim; Sam Storms represents Amillennialism. The discussion gets spirited at points, which makes it interesting. Although, I have to say that Jim Hamilton (with whom I attended Southern Seminary) is quite irritating at points in cutting off Storms and Wilson quite a bit, not hearing what Storms and Wilson say and putting forth some silly arguments. (Sorry if this biasses how you hear Jim.)

I was surprised to find Wilson as the most placid and demur of the three. I also quite appreciated the humility of Wilson and Storms in their closing statements.

It would have been nice if there had been a brief description of each one's hermeneutical commitments in approaching the topic.

I did walk away with one major question though, "WHY ON EARTH WAS SAM STORMS PRESENTING AMILLENNIALISM INSTEAD OF GREG BEALE?!!"

You can listen to it or watch it below.
