I wonder what use Doug thinks the New Testament will have in the golden age, when it's predominant theme is that kingdom life and maturity comes only through suffering. Just as there is no justification without the suffering of Christ, John, Mark, Peter, James, and Paul tell us that there is no sanctification apart from our participation in and completion of Christ's suffering.
Essentially, this books seems to be a reaction against Dispy thinking, but it would be better to simply go to the New Testament and let it tell us how to think of Isaiah and the implications for the future.
I'm giving up on finding a compelling, or even coherent, view of Post-Mill thinking. It's hard to kick against the goad.
Disclosure: 1) I love a lot of Doug's other writings (everything but Reformed Is Not Enough). 2) I fought infant baptism for nine years after reading his "To a Thousand Generations". I did not find it compelling at the time, but now look back on it with some pleasure. So you never know.
Over all this was an excellent read that will hopefully realign the church at large with the intended mission from scripture and reform our current ideas of individual "renewal" every church gathering. We are to be salt and light. We are the agents to trample the darkness our culture brings about. We have a mission, and the church today has largely lost this understanding.
