A REVIEW AND EVALUATION OF J. RICHARD MIDDLETON, A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH

Debates about eschatology have continued unabated in evangelical theology up until the present time. Among those debates is the issue about how much continuity there is between the present earthly age and the eternal age to come. Some see no continuity: when we die we are spiritually raised from a material earth and body to a nonmaterial heaven and body, and remain there forever. Others see a lot of continuity, sometimes so much that the only difference between the two ages is that there will be an ethical cleansing of the old earth, and then an ethically cleansed earth will continue on into eternity, with believers being physically resurrected and residing there.
