I want to give an update on various writing and speaking projects I am involved with:
1. The first printing of my book, Has the Church Replaced Israel, has sold out in four months and thus a second printing is necessary. I appreciate all who have been supportive of this effort and even those who do not agree but have given me a fair hearing.
2. I am a contributor to a book to be released on June 1, 2011 called The Return of Christ: A Premillennial Perspective. My chapter is “Eschatology of the Pauline Epistles.” Others with chapters in this book include Jerry Vines, Paige Patterson, Craig Blaising, Danny Aiken, David Allen, and others. It is edited by David Allen and Steve Lemke and is published by Broadman & Holman. We were pleased to land a solid endorsement from John MacArthur for this book.
3. I am contributing three chapters to an upcoming book put out by John MacArthur, Richard Mayhue, and other faculty members of The Master’s Seminary. The book, published by Moody Press, is a defense of Dispensationalism/Futuristic Premillennialism. Two of my chapters are an explanation of dispensational theology and the other is a rationale for the purpose of Israel in God’s plans. In sum, I argue that Christ’s role as True Israel includes the restoration of national Israel for His glory and purposes. This book will be released in 2012. I’ll give more updates on this as I become aware of them.
4. Thomas Ice and the Pre-Trib Research Center have asked me to contribute a chapter to a book that will be released in time for the twentieth anniversary of the Pre-Trib Study Group Conference this December. My chapter is, “Israel and the Church and Why it Matters to the Rapture.”
5. This November 4–6 I will be speaking at Foothill Christian Fellowship in Meadow Vista, California on the topic of Biblical Prophecy.
6. My long terms plans involve writing on the subject of New Testament use of the Old Testament. I will be teaching a Th.M. seminar this summer at The Master’s Seminary on this topic.
Let me know if you have any questions about any of these endeavors.
