What are the three main views of the millennium?
Three predominant views held by evangelicals seek to answer these and related questions: premillennial, postmillennial, and amillennial. This book gives each view a forum for presentation, critique, and defense.
What is the difference between pre and post millennialism?
Amillennialists do not view the thousand years mentioned in Revelation as a literal thousand years but see the number “thousand” as symbolic and numerological. Premillennialism is distinct from the other views such as postmillennialism which views the millennial rule as occurring before the second coming.

Why is the millennium so important?

Millennium, a period of 1,000 years. The Gregorian calendar, put forth in 1582 and subsequently adopted by most countries, did not include a year 0 in the transition from bc (years before Christ) to ad (those since his birth). Thus, the 1st millennium is defined as spanning years 1–1000 and the 2nd the years 1001–2000.
