    The Millenium by Lorraine Boettner, Original vs. Revised Edition

    In the 1957 edition of The Millenium, Boettner writes (Chapter 4, page 21, Final paragraph of the chapter):

    Furthermore, the fact that some who designate themselves Amillennialists hold that the present Church age constitutes the Millennium and that Christ will come at the close of the Church age might seem to make them Postmillennialists. But since the primary tenet of Postmillennialism as generally understood is that the coming of Christ is to follow a golden age of righteousness and peace, those who look upon the entire Church age as the Millennium are not commonly referred to as Postmillennialists.
    If someone has the Revised Edition, could you please let me know if any of this wording has been changed?

    Thank you!

    PS- Searched through old threads and couldn't find one with this specific information, but if someone does find a previous thread that addresses this, please post a link. Thanks!

    I have the revised edition and the text in my copy is identical to your quote.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
