    Does anyone know of some good books, in print or out-of-print, that cover fairly and in depth the idealist, preterist, historicist & futurist views of the end times?

    Philip Mauro has several good books which present a more preterist view.

    More Than Conquerors by William Hendriksen presents a very compelling case for the philosophy of history or symbolic school.

    Four Views of Revelation by Marvin Pate

    Four Views on the Book of Revelation focuses specifically on the book of Revelation and the primary ways in which it is read and understood today. It looks at four interpretations of Revelation, and why those particular interpretations are held. The four interpretations are: the preterist, idealist, classical dispensational futurist, and progressive dispensationalist. Each is presented by a leading proponent in an interactive, dialogue format.

    Revelation: Four Views, A Parralell Commentary

    Edited by: Steven Gregg

    Has the passage at the top of the page and then puts the four different views and their commentaries from noted scholars who espouse that view in parrallel columns underneath the passage. You could look up any verse in Revelation and get a commentary of what all four views believe about that verse all at the same time.

    He also does a wonderful introduction of the Revelation and history / major arguments for and against the four views and how they differ and where they agree at the beginning of the book. It also has a great index at the end of the book which cross-references scripture, ideas, etc...

    I highly recommend this book.

    What I am really looking for is a book that deals not only with Revelation, but other end times passages as well, such as Matthew 24.

    I recently purchased Gregg's book on Revelation. So far, it looks really good.

    Steven Gregg's book is one of the best to read for an idea of the major eschatalogical views. I would also take a good look at 'The Last Days According to Jesus' by R. C. Sproul(ISBN:080106340X),'Beyond the End Times' by John Noe(ISBN:0962131148),and 'End Times Fiction' by Gary DeMar(ISBN:0785266429).These are eye opening mind jarring books, well worth the time to read them. Also 'Before Jerusalem Fell' by Kenneth Gentry also will shed some light on this subject.

    Beyond the End Times is a good book I have read. However, if you are looking for an objective point of view, this is not it. I am not saying it isn't a good book, only that it is decidedly preterist in its view.

    "Last Days Madness" by Gary DeMar
    great for understanding "apocolyptic" language

    "The Parousia" by James Stewart Russell
    Full Preterist view of escatology using the entire bible

    " Last Days According to Jesus" By RC sproul


    Good book on Partial vs. Full preterism.

    Shattering the Left Behind Delusion
    by John Noe

    This will 'shatter' a lot of misconceptions about a flawed theology!

    That is a good book. It is not, however, quite as indepth as "Beyond the End Times: The Rest of the Greatest Story Ever Told" by: John Noe.
