President of Preterist Research Institute of Ardmore, Ok. Mr. Preston holds seminars around the world, engages in radio interviews, and debates.

More About the Author

Don K. Preston (D. Div.)was born in 1949, and began speaking publicly at age 13. He, and the love of his life, his wife Janis, live in Oklahoma. Preston is a very popular seminar speaker. He has traveled extensively holding seminars on what is known as Covenant Eschatology (preterism), the view that all prophecy was fulfilled at the end of the Old Covenant age that arrived with the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70. Preston is an experienced debater, having engaged some of the leading evangelicals of the day, including Thomas Ice, Harold Hoehner, C. Marvin Pate, David Engelsma, and a host of others. Preston has written, to date, 21 books on fulfilled prophecy, (not to mention a host of CDs and DVDs). His books have been called "ground breaking" and "definitive" by friend and foe alike. One of the things Preston does best is to challenge the prevailing futurist views of the "end times" showing them to be totally misplaced. Preston is sometimes known as "The prophecy teacher that debunks prophecy teachers!" Preston is founder and president of Preterist Research Institute of Ardmore, Ok., and owns three websites that contain a wealth of Biblical studies: www.eschatology.org; www.bibleprophecy.com, and www.donkpreston.com. He is also co-host, with William Bell of Memphis, Tennessee, of a popular radio program "Two Guys and a Bible," that airs each Tuesday evening, 6 PM central time: www.fulfilledradio.com.

Format: Paperback
N.T. Wright once commented: "Little did Paul know how his colorful metaphors for Jesus' second coming would be misunderstood two millennia later."

Don Preston's 2009 book, We Shall Meet Him in the Air, is a powerful tool for clearing up the misunderstandings of which Wright spoke. But this book is more than a polemic against the plague of dispensationalism that has swept Christianity into error over the last century-and-a-half. Rather, this book is a well-crafted treatise presenting the covenantal approach to eschatology.

1 Thessalonians 4:13f is one of the most important of all Bible prophecies that deal with the controversial subject of the "second coming" of Jesus Christ. Prolific author Don Preston unpacks this passage phrase by phrase and discloses the powerful truths that have been buried by the thrill-seeking sensationalism that surrounds most discussion of Bible prophecy.

Preston is a full preterist--a covenantal preterist--who sees 1 Thessalonians 4 as having four major thrusts:
* The restoration of the life lost in Adam,
* The fulfillment of God's promises to Israel,
* The dedication of the Messianic Temple, and
* The wedding (re-marriage) of Israel.

When the richness of these concepts is seen, the juvenile perspective of people flying through the air, driverless cars crashing into one another, suits of clothes falling empty on the sidewalks, and other sci-fi inspired descriptions of the "rapture" pale in comparison.

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.

I learned more in the first 10 pages of this book than I did in many books on this topic. Preston gets right to the point and he doesn't do a lot of intellectual meandering. I noticed this as a stark contrast to books I've read on this topic from other authors.

Preston has a great habit of stating his point then jumping right to proving it.

The only downside of this book is his apparent food fight with Gentry. I feel like Preston could make efficient arguments without having to drag Gentry in to it. Preston could just make his point and let it be. His little food fight with Gentry kind of clutters up his book at certain points. I guess Preston may derive a little pleasure from propping up easy to shoot down arguments.

His book is mostly straight to the point expression of his opinion, with a little bit of a food fight with Gentry.

Format: Paperback
From the winning stable of fine Pre-
terist Preacher Don K. Preston of
the Ardmore, Oklahoma Church of Christ
comes a new volume of prophesy proclaim-
ing the really good news of Jesus com-
plete and once and for all delivered to
the saints life in Christ.

This in-depth exegeis of 1 Thessalonians
4:13, Preston shows that a linguistic,
grammatical, contexual anaylisis of Paul's
text actually falisifies all future expec-
tations of 'a bodily return of Jesus' to
earth and "end of the Christian age".

Dispensationalism is a house of cards that
will destroy ones correct interpretation
of the fulfilled prophesy correct view of
the Bible. This is very occultic, people.
Pls. wake up and read the truely good
news!

Revisionistically Yours,

Rich Salzer,
Historical Review Library,
Moyock, North Carolina, USA

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By William H. Bell, Jr. on September 28, 2013
Format: Paperback
The question I had before reading the book were: What exegetical approach does he take on the subject of the rapture? What I learned was the amazing number of writers, both premil and amil which were critiqued in the book.

The author cites the problem of attempting to separate the church from the promises of Israel, commonly found in most eschatological paradigms. Again, he builds his case on the writings of Moses and the prophets and the applications by the inspired apostles. The arguments were so lucid and the conclusions so compelling that the case was well established for the author's point of view.

This is not your run of the mill commentary. It has some of the most riveting arguments for eschatology and the end times, specifically the nature of the resurrection you will find anywhere. The Old Testament is his resource along with supplemented scholarly research of early and recent scholars. Dr. Preston has put them on notice.
