How can a Christian give himself to work for the coming of the kingdom of God, while we know that the present world is destined for destruction? A very optimistic view of the future and the possibilities of science often leads to a postmillennial view of eschatology. This essay considers the true nature of Christian hope and gives a short overview of different positions taken in the Christian tradition, like premillennialism, postmillennialism, and amillennialism.
