The article reviews a two volume set on the Second Advent. It begins by claiming all prophecy in the Old Testament hints at the coming of Christ. The fact that Jews do not recognize this is their failing. The issue becomes what is the Second Coming going to be like and when will it come. The review presents two theories to compare. There will be a resurrection at the beginning of the new millennium as predicted in Daniel and John. Either it will be a literal resurrection or a spiritual one. The literalist view is less common but is based fairly on scripture. The reviewer presents textual support from Daniel, which the spiritualist would claim are allegorical. The reviewer also presents opinions on passages from Paul’s letters as well as passages from Matthew and Luke. There is no firm conclusion, but the reviewer’s textual analysis claims that the Second Coming will precede the millennium.
