A Case For Reformed Amillennialism

Why Every Self-Respecting Calvinist Is NOT A Premillennial Dispensationalist: A Concise Case For Reformed Amillennialism

The case for amillennialism is very compelling. It’s a view literally taught by Jesus, Paul, the book of Revelation, the Nicene and Apostles’ Creed, as well as the Reformed Confessions.

Neo-Calvinism: A Theological Introduction (Book Review)

Interest in Neo-Calvinism has been awakened in recent years due to the publications of Herman Bavinck’s Reformed Dogmatics, The Wonderful Works of God, and Dr. James Eglinton’s Bavinck: A Critical Biography. Herman Bavinck, and his mentor, Abraham Kuyper, are known as the chief architects of Neo-Calvinism. In this current work, Cory C. Brock and N.
