The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, vol. 3


Part I - Colonial American and Early National Writers on Prophecy

CHAPTER ONE: Prophecy’s Key Place in Colonial American Thought

Having traversed the centuries up to the French Revolution in Volumes 1 and 2, in tracing the history of prophetic interpretation in the Old World, we now turn to the New. Volume 2 closed with the recognized and proclaimed ending of the 1260-year era of the Little Horn, accomplished through the instrumentality of the French, as the outgrowth of the French Revolution. In Volume 3 we first retrace our steps for three centuries—back to colonial American times—thus to pick up the paralleling American thread of prophetic exposition, which matches and supplements that of England and the Continent.
