Format: Paperback
Vos's The Pauline Eschatology marks a monumental advance in Pauline theology. The fruits of over 40 years of vigorous Biblical scholarship, Pauline Eschatology is the last work we have from Vos's pen; and it is undoubtedly his most substantial contribution--his magnum opus. The most important developments that Vos makes are the connection between the Apostle's soteriology (doctrine of salvation) and his eschatology (doctrine of the last things). His chapters on the Resurrection and the Eternal State are brilliant. Based on penetrating exegesis, Vos insightfully works out Paul's Christological perspective of salvation, focussing on the objective acts of the Lord's death and resurrection as they inaugurate the new creation, the age to come, and relates that to the individual's personal salvation. Vos further delves the Apostle's pneumatology (doctrine of the Spirit) and demonstrates how the Spirit functions in his central message of salvation.
The appendix, "The Eschatology of the Psalter," is truly inspiring, opening up for his readers the Psalmist's God-centered piety and God-oriented hope.
Oriented toward the more scholarly audience, Pauline Eschatology is an invaluable resource for pastors and students alike, but is not completely beyond the grasp of the interested reader. If you pick up only one book on Paul, this one should stand at the top of your list.

Format: Paperback
'Revelation could make use of the pre-established harmony which it had itself laid at the basis of its scheme.' p 43

Geerhardus Vos raised the curtain when he insisted, 'to unfold Paul's eschatology is to set forth his theology as a whole', p 11, specifically in terms of the two ages, namely, this age and the age to come. The essay which defined Vos' eschatology was printed under the title 'The Eschatological Aspect Of The Pauline Conception Of The Spirit' (printed 1912). The seminal thoughts found there Vos later elaborated on to successfully publish his plenary tour de force in 1930, which marked a stage of development in the theology of Pauline literature not yet known, and hitherto not yet equalled.

In Scripture the rapture and renewal of the earth is subordinate to the resurrection - not preceding the resurrection, but said to follow on the resurrection. In fact, our Lord and Christ explicitly stated: "I am the Resurrection and the Life." The dispensational hermeneutic specifically misinterprets the singularity of the revelation to be revealed in us, as Paul deals with in Romans 8:18-19. At issue is not just the rapture, as is misleadingly proposed by Tim LaHaye, but a much fuller climactic event. The whole of creation is on tip-toe to see the sons of God revealed, as the inanimate creation anticipates its own renewal, following instantly upon the resurrection of all the dead. With remarkable foresight Vos deconstructed the exegetical excesses of the popular Left Behind alliance. No other Pauline work has so successfully delimited the patently false teaching of rapture-speculative theology.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Sadstudent on May 17, 2012
Format: Paperback
The Pauline Eschatology, is quite simply what the apostle St. Paul says about the end times. With a title like that, it caught my interest. This is one of the more readable Vos books, he is quite dense (hard to read.) It helps if you start from beginning to end while reading any of his works, however it tends to pick up a few chapters in.

I don't have a firm grasp of the material he is putting forth in his work, but it tries to put forward his knowledge of the Greek and Hebrew into a historical interpretative prospective; meaning that he will break down what words mean in the original language and what it meant at the time of the writing. It is not an account at modern translations, but just how somethings can be lost in translation, or how people view what something could mean to us today forgetting what it could have met to the early church.

It isn't a book you can read through in a weekend. It helps to take a little bit at a time. It is not going to radically change your theology or anything like that, however it is wonderfully interesting. I would give this work 5 out of 5, however because of the difficulty in reading this, it deserves a 4 out of 5.

Format: Paperback
Tough sledding through much. Keep a Bible handy as he expects you to know the texts he exegetes. The essay on the eschatology of the Psalter included at the end is excellent.

"Only one thing more, and that of supreme importance, needs to be remembered: all eschatological interpretation of history, when united to a strong religious mentality cannot but produce the finest practical theological fruitage. To take God as source and end of all that exists and happens, and to hold such a view suffused with the warmth of genuine devotion, stands not only related to theology as the fruit stands to the tree: it is by reason of its essence a veritable theological tree of life." P 61.

"A so-called called Christianity proving cold or hostile towards the interests of the life to come has ceased to be Christianity in the historic sense of the word." P 63.

"2 Thess. belongs among the many prophecies, whose best and final exegete will be the eschatological fulfilment, and in regard to which it behooves the saints to exercise a peculiar kind of eschatological patience." P 133.

"It is the special function of the Church to speak unceasingly and unfalteringly for this one supreme aspect of the future world, to insist in season and out of season that in it God and the service of God are to the highest good and satisfaction of mankind, that without which all other desirable things will lose their value and abiding significance." P. 358 (from "The Eschatology of the Psalms").

"The Church of Christ in all its complex service to the world can never forget that its primary concern is to call man into and prepare them for the life eternal.
