The Appeal of Premillennialism

“Certainly the power of the premillennial vision cannot be doubted. Even though it was pessimistic about this world, its heightened supernaturalism produced a strong sense of hope and optimism anchored in the world to come. It taught people to deny this world and live in light of the world to come.”

-Walter Unger in “‘Ernestly Contending for the Faith’: The Role of the Niagara Bible Conference in the Emergence of American Fundamentalism,” p. 207

  1. Van, trying to reach you by email regarding I.M. Haldeman biographical information. In particular, do you know where I can get a copy of his “Personal History” book, or a scanned version of it?
