RE: [Review] Douglas Wilson, Heaven Misplaced

  • For most [Christians], “the world is God’s Vietnam, and the return of Christ consists of the few lucky ones [getting] helicoptered off a roof during the fall of Saigon”.

    Some of his best arguments:

    1) It is promised. The scriptures he arranges and explicates for this are many, and heart-warming, but can be summed up with the famous greatness of Isaiah 11:6-10.
        “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
        and the leopard shall lie down with the kid;
        and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
        and a little child shall lead them.”

    2) It is lovely. He includes a basic gospel exposition spread over numerous chapters, rejoicing warmly in the well-known elements, but adding this perspective … putting the ‘good’ back in ‘good news’.

    3) He also excellently tidies up both Christ’s promise that he would return before “this generation passes away”, and the Book of Revelation
