Product Description

DVD. Formal, public debate between Dr. Richard Gaffin (Westminster Theological Seminary) and Kenneth Gentry at the Van Til Conference in Maryland. Each debater opens with a 40 minute positive presentation and then engage in cross-examination. (Over 2 1/2 hours)

Dr. Gaffin argued that the Christian is called to suffer in this world and should not expect the amelioration of sinful conditions.  Gentry countered that though the Christian should expect and endure suffering in history, ultimately these conditions will be lessened as the gospel expands its influence.

If interested in the Amill/Postmill debate, we also recommend the book edited by Gentry: Thine Is the Kingdom. The two chapters by Dr. Gentry focus on and rebut arguments by Amillennialists against Postmillennialism. This book is also available on our website.

  1. Good but simultaneously disappointing 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2020

    While I really appreciate Gentry's scholarship, and his help with understanding prophecy through an amillenial/postmillenial perspective, I think Gentry really got destroyed in this debate. Postmillenialism is delusional.

  2. Almost a Debate 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Nov 2017

    I will address three things in this review. The first is the quality in the DVDs. The second was ok though Dr. Gentry was cut off at the end. My particular copy of the debate was not copied well, having skips and jumps.
    Second, the argument for Amillenialism was one of the poorest I have come across. Dr. Gaffin focused on one issue, the suffering of the church, and he had to work hard to make it sound like it is different from the view of the Postmillenialist. In the end, Dr. Gaffin was barely able to demonstrate that his theology was significantly different from Postmillenialism and I conclude, as I often have, that the Amillenialist is really a closet Postmillenialist.
    Third, Dr. Gentry was able to present a precise argument which Dr. Gaffin was not able to do. Thus the debate was really one sided as one of the participants failed to specifically address any of Dr. Gentry's arguments. He appeared more prepared to preach a sermon rather than academically address a position.
    Thus, the debate was a disappointment. However, Dr. Gentry did do a good job concisely presenting Postmillenialist theology.

  3. Great debate 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Dec 2013

    Gaffin makes a good opening, but as Proverbs 18:17 puts it "The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him". Gentry's opening is far superior in presentation, style and content; he shows from a broad spectrum of Scripture what is the basis for the Postmill frame. On cross-examinaxion Gaffin gets fairly lost and unable to contradict Gentry.

    I'm very thankful for Dr. Gentry's ministry as he's unafraid to take the conclusions of sounds hermeneutics to wherever the Bible takes us.

    PS: the 4 stars (in lieu of 5) were for some parts of the DVD 1 that skipped.

  4. Best I heard 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2012

    Your explanation of Postmillennialism was one of the best I heard because I could listen to it explained which benefited me more than reading about it. God Bless your ministry.
