Titles by Samuel M. Frost

The Parousia of the Son of Man

Frost takes the reader through a visual tour of the Scriptures concerning the passages of the “presence” of the Lord at the right hand of God in heaven and what it meant then, and what it means now for the believer.


God, As Bill Wilson Understood Him

A theological look at the book, Alcoholics Anonymous, edited by its co-founder, Bill Wilson, which launched the largest recovery movement in America and worldwide. This is not an attack piece, but a sympathetic understanding of where Wilson and early A.A. pioneers got many of their ideas.


The book of Daniel has a reputation of being difficult and sometimes inscrutable. Sam Frost writes a concise, easily-read meditation on the text that incorporates scholarship without being complex, and brings a contagious passion for the spiritual lessons beyond the prophecies. He will challenge your assumptions to see the unity of Daniel’s message in a way you may not have considered before. This book is solidly written, informed and scholarly, yet not too academic. It’s very readable for any serious Bible student” – Brian Godawa,  award-winning Hollywood screenwriter (To End All Wars, The Visitation), and best selling author.

Frost offers a new, fresh translation from the Hebrew/Aramaic texts of Daniel as well as challenging Evangelical interpretations by utilizing creative reconstructions drawn from historical and present scholars. It is being published by McGahan Publishing House (Tullahoma, TN). It’s release date is September, 2021.

“For several years, Sam Frost was the academic voice of so-called full preterism. He wrote numerous books, articles, and blog posts in support of it, gave lectures defending it, and responded in print to those who were critical of it. By God’s grace, his eyes have been opened to the truly unbiblical nature of this novel doctrine, and he has rightly renounced it. In this work, Frost provides a point-by-point account of his theological journey. In the last several years, we have witnessed several prominent full preterists renounce this heresy and embrace Christianity. May our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ use Frost’s work to open the eyes of many, many more.”
Keith L. Mathison, Professor of Systematic Theology at Reformation Bible College in Sanford, Fl.

“I’m glad there’s a debate taking place over the subject of Bible prophecy. It’s been needed for a long time. There is a tendency, however, among some people who change prophetic views to swing the pendulum too far. They are so disenchanted with what they once believed that they believe it’s necessary to reject everything that system taught. Preterism is gaining a foothold among scholars and laypeople, but some are getting worried that some adherents are taking it to unbiblical extremes. Sam Frost went there and back. His book, Why I Left Full Preterism, is a great starting point in understanding the inherent dangers of a Full Preterist position.”
Gary DeMar, President of American Vision

This work is the bane of Full Preterists everywhere. As a former teacher, leader, and nationwide conference speaker in that persuasion, those still entrenched in it know who Samuel M. Frost is, and they know the damage this book has done. Acclaimed researcher and scholar Kenneth L. Gentry, Th.D., writes the Foreword. This can be purchased here. The American Vision Kindle publication can be found here.

Samuel M. Frost wrote two books well received within the Full (“Hyper”) Preterist community. Misplaced Hope (Bi-Millennial Publications, 2002, 2nd Ed., 2004) was hailed by Max King (and published by his son, Tim King), whose work, The Cross and the Parousia of Christ (1987, Warren, Ohio), was highlighted by R.C. Sproul’s book, The Last Days According to Jesus (Baker Books, 1998). King’s book is regarded as the foundation of Full Preterism today. Frost also wrote, Exegetical Essays on the Resurrection (2007 TruthVoice, 2nd Ed., 2010, JaDon Publications), which is still popular among Full Preterists and endorsed by one of the main teachers of Full Preterism, Don K. Preston, as a “must read” (see here. Frost is frequently cited in many of Preston’s books as well); Frost also co-authored, House Divided: A Reformed Response to When Shall These Things Be? (Vision, 2009).

Frost has also been cited in these books where his work was noticed among those who opposed Full Preterism while he operated as one the main teachers with Ed Stevens, Jr., Don K. Preston, John Noe, Michael Miano, Alan Bondar, Tim King, Max King and Dave Curtis.

Lance Conley has also put out a massive work dealing with the Hyper Preterist movement, of which he also is a former adherent. I was asked to write the Foreword. This can be purchased online here

There are three other books written by Ex Full Preterists, Roderick Edwards and Brock Hollett, and a fine work by Stephen Whitsett (Amridge University); Frost is noted in these works as well. All are available from Amazon.

Critical Race Theory Introductions

By Samuel M. Frost, Th.M.

People all over the nation are clamoring to find material on Critical Race Theory. It is a fascinating thing to watch what will be recorded in future history books about our own era, provided we are still here. We read of the Scopes Trial, or the Eugenics Movement in the past. We can only read about the reaction of the populace since most of us were not alive. Sweeping reforms, Temperance, Union riots. What will the Media outlets say in hundred years? Critical Race Theory grips the Nation; Teachers Union under Fire for Endorsement of CRT; Another Protest at Local School Turned Riot.

There are a few sources I have read that can help. I want to present somewhat a balance in terms of the response of those who claim to ‘believe in the Bible.’ The first is from my dear brother and good friend, Jason L. Bradfield. Jason is an Assistant Pastor with his M.A. in Theological Studies. He penned, ‘Basic Tenets in Critical Race Theory’ (April, 2021) which highlights the current academic-sourced well. Brad Mason has also penned a different take, offering a more nuanced approach with his article, ‘What is Critical Race Theory? An Introduction to the Movement and its Ideas‘ (February, 2021). Still further, thanks Pastor Kameron Gray for the notice, a new website, The Chalkboard Review, which offers a Critical Race Theory Toolkit.

Of course, I am still stuck back in my library reading Karl Mannheim (Ideology and Utopia), J. Derrida (Specter of Marx), H. Marcuse (One-Dimensional Man, who mentions Derrick Bell, a name you see associated with CRT often, concerning industry and labor), or Raymond Geuss (Ideology of a Critical Theory: Habermas & the Frankfurt School, who also mentions Bell. Geuss corrects a bit Bell’s use of Mannheim’s work, mentioned above).

If someone dives further into the roots and sources pre-Derrick Bell, Kimberlé Crenshaw, or Richard Delgado (three current espousers of CRT), it will be readily noticed that there is no “one theory fits all” here. Critical Theory itself is a methodology that has been around since the late nineteenth century (in seed form, anyway). One can find such applications in Chester M. Pierce, Psychiatric Problems of the Black Minority (1974. Basic Books. From American Handbook of Psychiatry: Volume 2 edited by Silvano Arieti, Gerald Caplan). Pierce coined the phrase, “micro-aggression” (see, Floyd B. Barbour, The Black Seventies, ‘Offensive Mechanisms’. 1970. Boston. P. Sargent).

These are a few ‘sources’ to start with. Is there alarmist hypo-scare mongering? Yeah. Is there “let’s water this down, CRT isn’t so bad” soft peddling? Yeah. Is there, “well, let me read for myself, take the time, use caution, and turn off the television news” approaches? Yeah. That’s the one I recommend. I would add to that, followers of Jesus Christ, the Nazarene born as a Jew, who now resides in the heavenly cosmos ruling over me, you, Derrick Bell, Joel McDurmon, Thomas Sowell, and Mark Levine is the Truth embodied. Nothing escapes him. Nothing. He searches the minds and hearts, leaving not a single word or thought unnoticed. He is not white, black, red, brown, or yellow. He is immortal, body and soul, forever glorified. He is summing up the ages to himself, and summoning human beings “from every tribe, language, nation, and people” to his coming inheritance, where there will be, on this earth, zero racism, zero injustice, zero oppression, and zero evil. Theorize, debate, study, research, plan committees, petition your Officials, protest your county boards. Do what you think is best. But, whatever you do, if you follow the Lamb of God, be guarded against doing it upon his Name and Cause when it may turn out that your “cause” is not His.
