Because of all this talk about eschatology (study of the last things) and heaven caused by my previous post on N.T. Wright’s views of heaven, I wanted to pick up a book that explained postmillennialism because I’ve only been exposed in depth to dispensational premillennialism (click here for a chart that briefly compares all the eschatological views). I got the book Victory in Jesus: The Bright Hope of Postmillennialism and—lo and behold!—the author Dr. Greg Bahnsen, former teaching elder (pastor) in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, looks fairly similar to Ron Burgundy (played by Will Ferrell) from the movie Anchorman.
If only he had the mustache.
I’ll get back to you once I finish the book. It looks quite good thus far. I’m pretty excited about it.
If anyone is interested, John Piper hosted “An Evening of Eschatology” at his church in 2009, which was a 2 hour debate among the three views: Jim Hamilton (premil), Doug Wilson (postmil), Sam Storms (amil). It was really interesting. To watch it, click here.
And with that, I leave you with my favorite scene from Anchorman!
