Puritan Board Graduate
The Dutch tradition went amillennial at some point, and the Westminster Seminary tradition is pretty uniformly amillennial. These two strands have caused a shift in that direction throughout the Reformed and Presbyterian churches in the US. Scotland hasn't seen as much of it because they don't have as much influence from those traditions. They have a tradition of their own, which is primarily postmillennial.Is there any reliable data on this? I'd think if the above statement is true it must be a fairly recent development, as postmillenialism has been the dominant eschatological position in reformed circles at least from the Reformation to the 20th Century (perhaps outside the Netherlands). Iain Murray's excellent book "The Puritan Hope" traces Reformed eschatological thought in the UK from the Reformation through to quite recent times and shows how dominant postmillenialism has been throughout that period.
