All in all the book is an excellent summary of the millennial views, of the book of Revelation, and of Satan-ology.

One can hardly go wrong in purchasing any book by Greg Bahnsen. Even if you completely disagree with what he argues, it must be admitted that his writing is clear, interesting, and well studied.

The present book is a collection of essays and articles. As such, it doesn't really make for a systematic reading of postmillennialism. However, it is an excellent primer for any discussion of the millennial views, as well as a good introduction to the book of Revelation.

Bahnsen's division of the book of Revelation is quite simple, and contrasts with the more complex divisions offered by amillennialists and dispensationalists. The key contention for his position, which isn't dealt with extensively in this book, is whether the writing of Revelation is to be dated prior to the Fall of Jerusalem in A.D. 70. Readers interested in that argument should consult Kenneth Gentry's book, Before Jerusalem Fell: Dating the Book of Revelation.

As for the millennial views, perhaps the most eye-opening chapter is the long treatment of the prima facie acceptability of postmillennialism. If Bahnsen's reading of Reformation, Post-Reformation, and Modern Reformation theology is correct, then it is astonishing how many theologians and pastors of those periods espoused postmillennialism in one form or another. Granted, the earlier one seeks to find the view, the more implicitly the doctrine is formulated. However, the distinctions between the millennial views was mostly unnecessary before the rise of dispensationalism in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The last chapter in the book seems particularly directed at modern-day pentecostalism.

If you are looking to better understand the Bible, the book of Revelations, the future of the Church, Fall of Jerusalem, and the Millennial views (Premil, Amil, Postmil), this is a MUST read!

Bahnsen has such a way of capture your attention and explaining Biblical Truths in a clear, understandable, meaty manner that isn't watered down or wishy washy. He lays a solid foundation by using Scripture, Jesus' own words, and historical facts to back up his points. Anyone would have a hard time arguing with or debating his insights.

Watch Revelations come alive, and the whole Bible, and made clearly understandable before your very eyes.

It is my desire to share this book with as many people as a possibly can! It has really sparked a deeper love and understanding of the importance of being a faithful Christian and what that involves.

Christ and His people shall surely win the victory over death and evil! What a bright hope, indeed, for the future!

Greg Bahnsen was studied enough to debate philosophy. But this book, taken from lectures, is in such simple and clear language that you could use it in your youth group. Furthermore, it is packed with several valuable studies. Not only does he deal deftly with the real differences among Premillennial, Amillennial, and Postmillennial interpretations and their implications for practical living; the late, great Bahnsen gives an astoundingly good overview of the book of Revelation in the first chapter - the best broadbrush picture I've ever read. There is also a very important nugget - a goldmine, really - in the final chapters' study about Satan and the various names/titles given to this fallen creature. That alone would merit repackaging the book with a title about a study of Satan and his defeat by the Lord Jesus Christ.

That said, I do not agree with every jot and tittle of his book, and having read other works by the author, I can tell you I disagree with some of his hardline Reformed theological views, as well as aspects of his preterism. Thankfully, he does not go into these matters in this book. No matter what camp you may be in, the many exegetical considerations Bahnsen makes in this work merits a close reading. It will stimulate your faith!

I had the opportunity to study under Dr. Bahnsen. 'Victory in Jesus' was compiled from essays he had written before his passing, it is insightful and to the point. Dr Bahnsen has a way of writing that seems to address your questions as he writes.
Dr Bahnsen reviews and compares the three main millennial views and exposes their differences and similarities.
What the people of YAHWEH (GOD) need more than ever in these pessimistic times is a good dose of hope, a positive view of His-story.
Those who do not like YAHWEH and the idea that His principles should guide our lives individually and collectively, or those who believe the fear of gloom and doom is the method of evangelism. I call it rapture evangelism. Will not want you to read 'Victory In Jesus.' I know I was pre-mill. Until I was exposed to another view.
Even if you don't agree, you should understand the Biblical perspective. That is one area Dr Bahnsen is true to, the Scripture. In all of Dr Bahnsen's teachings and writings his first premise was YAH (God) and thus HIS word the Bible.
He may not be with us today but his teachings and thought will enlighten us for generations to come.
Read 'Victory In Jesus'
