    I’d be interested to see Dr. Brown’s reaction to my new book New Creation Millennialism (www.simplegospel.com/docs/NewCreationMillennialism.pdf ). I think that my eschatological paradigm, based on the strong literary links between Isa. 26:10-11; 27:1-5; 66:22-24; Rev. 20:7-10, 13-15, gives a specific and coherent answer to the strangeness of the scene of an attack on the New Jerusalem in Isa. 66:22-24, which is most naturally to be seen as set in the new creation.

      i came across your post here wanting Dr Brown’s reaction to examining your Short Monograph. I was taken by two chapters listed in your Contents:

      Chapter 2 Insurmountable Problems of Historical Premillennialism
      Chapter 3 Insurmountable Problems with Amillennialism……

      I have found these two viewpoints the strongest and have had difficulty deciding between them. It was curious that you did not deal with either Postmillennialism or Dispensational Premillennialism which I think are of lessor value.

      I decided to read what you had to offer. I have not read it all but have read up to the end of Chapter 1 page 47. I think you have some interesting ways of interpreting Rev 19:5-21:8. Your reconciliation of the passages dealing with eternal torment and your conclusions I think would interest the readers here on the Rethinking Hell website.

      I hope others will including Dr Brown will take up your offer. I am passing your link on to a friend who has mentioned his struggle with the two resurrections explained from an Amillennial viewpoint.
