The Certainty of the World's Conversion: The Postmillennial Expectation of Southern Presbyterianism

Eschatology is the branch of systematics that summarizes the Christian philosophy of history and the prophesied events leading up to Christ's Second Advent. Its topics range from personal eschatology (death, the intermediate state, and heaven or hell) to the course of history and progress of the gospel, the final judgment, and the consummated state. This essay will deal exclusively with the future of the world and Church as understood by the leading Southern Presbyterians of the 18-19th centuries.
