Have We Missed the Second Coming:
A Critique of the Hyper-preterist Error
154 pp.; paper
Perhaps the title of this book intrigues you: Have We Missed the Second Coming? But if you are in an evangelical church a real possibility exists that you might soon experience a new doctrine invading your church and disrupting its peace.
The hyper-preterist movement teaches that Jesus’ second coming occurred in the first century when the Jewish temple was destroyed in AD 70. And that the great resurrection occurred at the same time. And that the resurrection body is spiritual rather than physical. And that the judgment of men occurred in AD 70 as well. And many other errors are gradually developing as it "integrates downward into the void" (to use an apt Van Til phrase).
Hyper-preterism is a new theological construct in evangelical circles. It has developed a rather enthusiastic and combative body of followers. What they lack in numbers, they more than make up for in noise.
This book offers a brief introduction, summary, and critique of the system. Don’t let your church and Christian friends be blindfolded to this new error. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

The chapter 5 on the transition section after Matthew 24:34 is very valuable and a must read! The exposition of 1 Corinthians 15 is very powerful! Especially verses 20-28!
Jesus says believers will be raised up at the last day John 6:39-40, 11:24 and unbelievers will be condemned at the last day John 12:48! How many days are there after the last day? Zero! Nobody is left behind! Jesus says there is only one resurrection for believers and unbelievers at the same "hour" John 5:28-29!
How can anybody be a dispensationalist, premillennialist or a hyperpreterist and deny what Jesus says in these passages which could not be more clear? I wish these verses were written out and emphasized early on in these eschatology books!
Kenneth Gentry has done tremendous research!
