The book is much more than an interpretation of the millennium or specific prophecies in Scripture concerning the antichrist, the Beast of Revelation, the Man of Lawlessness, and the like. It is an excellent introduction to eschatology in general. For examples, it includes chapters on the meaning of history, the Kingdom of God, the Already-Not Yet tension, physical death, the nature of immortality, the intermediate state, the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, eternal punishment, and the new earth, as well as sections on the millennium and other issues that are the primary focus of many works that have been written over the years.
Because it is so clearly written, it will prove useful for anyone who is seeking an overview of the general topic of eschatology. Moreover, because Hoekema is fair in his representation of those positions with which he disagrees, what he says permits the reader to make his or her own decision regarding the positions he supports.
