Web Editors Note:

Professor David Engelsma's articles have been published in book form by The Reformed Witness, Redlands, California and is available under the title:

Christ's Spiritual Kingdom,
A Defense of Reformed Amillennialism.

The original series began with an editorial "A Hope of the Saints," which addressed the subject of the believer's hope after death or the intermediate state. This was followed by another editoral, "Jewish Dreams, " which addressed the believer's hope in the second coming of Christ and the errors of Postmillennialism.

These editorials have been added to the series from the Standard Bearer.
