Having just read a few of your writings, I'm now investigating Amillennialism after a long flirtation with Post. But I still believe that the "restoration of all things" (Acts 3:21) necessarily precedes Parousia, and that we the Church, in partnership with Christ, build the millennial kingdom. Then, in God's time, He comes -- not as a warrior but as the fully visible, every-eye-shall-see-Him King, to inaugurate the New Creation. Let's get NT Wright in on this, shall we?

Sam, those points are so helpful. I love your website. It is a helpful resource to so many and your books are certainly some of my favorites (Esp. Kingdom Come). Thank you for all your hard work in print.

God Bless,

Thank you for this very helpful answer. I read Hamilton's post and was appreciated his Adam-Christ connections. But I was still troubled by the fact that it was being used to defend Christ needing to succeed where Adam had failed a second time. This indirectly seems to undermine what Christ had already accomplished in his first coming and is doing in his heavenly session ("putting all his enemies under his feet").
On a side note thank you for your book Kingdom Come. I read it while I studying for ordination in a denomination that has "premillennial" in its confession of faith. Unfortunately, I had to resign from my pastoral position as a result of my agreement with you. But I am so thankful for the things I learned from your book, the worship it ignited, and the longing for the new heavens and earth that it injected in me.
