The Second Coming of Christ by Merrill 1879
THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST:Considered in its Relation to The Mellennium, The Resurrection, and The Judgement. By S. M. Merrill, Walden and Stowe, Cincinnati, 1879.
The theme of this volume has occupied more or less of the thought of the Church ever since the Savior ascended to heaven, and will receive attention till he returns. Merrill begins his study of eschatology by examining the various popular theories regarding the Second Coming. He then covers the destruction of Jerusalem and the end of the world, the tribulation, the restoration of the Jews, the Millennium, various theories of the resurrection, judgment after death, and more. Instructive and informative, Merrill addresses these topics with clarity and nontechnical language.
S. M. Merrill (1825-1905) was an American bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church and an editor of the Western Christian Advocate. His works include A Digest of Methodist Law, Doctrinal Aspects of Christian Experience, and The New Testament Idea of Hell.
