Unfortunately, as you wade your way through books on eschatology, you will find thousands and thousands and thousands of titles promoting dispensationalism. Some of these are very practical works that are actually able to name the coming Antichrist, which could prove helpful if are planning a trip to whatever county he will arise in. Still others are very insightful, giving you the latest date for the secret rapture (which is only know to televangelists). This is extremely valuable to anyone wanting to get in a nice vacation before all hell breaks lose at the disappearance of believers at that moment.
But when you look around for postmillennial works, you have your work cut out for you. Publishers like to make money, and doom-and-gloom sells better than work-and-effort. Thus, the number of modern postmillennial books are fewer.
However, by God’s grace more-and-more of them are coming out. Here are some that should prove helpful to anyone wanting to investigate the postmillennial hope.

Work and effort are anathema to dispensationalists and other premillennialists. Yet, as they pine for the rapture, do they realize they are ushering in the supposed seven years of chaos, death, and mass destruction? An absurd eschatology, for sure.
