Keith Mathison has edited this important work from P & R Publishing which provides a reformed response to the aberrant HyperPreterist theolgy. Dr. Gentry's chapter critiques HyperPreterism from an historical and creedal perspective, showing that it is outside historic Christian orthodoxy and is dangerously close to be developing a cult.
Other chapters are by some Preterist and some non-Preterist Reformed authors, such as Charles E. Hill, Richard L. Pratt, Jr., Keith A. Mathison, Simon J. Kistemaker, Douglas Wilson, and Robert B. Strimple.

"Several of the essays are especially noteworthy. Gentry’s examination of the historic church creeds as over against the HP position is particularly well done (1-61). He thoroughly debunks the HP claim of “No creed but the Bible” (61). He states that the adherent of HP “feigns ‘scholarship’ and claims ‘consistency’ as a lure to theologically immature Christians” (ibid). Hard line fundamentalists, to keep their own sub-biblical teachings above scriptural and theological scrutiny, have also used such claims."
