Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Between Sardis and Philadelphia contains the table of contents, list of maps and illustrations, acknowledgements, and introduction. The book examines the life and world of Conrad Bröske (1660-1713), Court Preacher to Count Johann Philipp II in Offenbach/Mayn. Bröske's claim to fame lies in a ten year period between 1694 and 1704 in which this staid Reformed pastor came to espouse with increasing vigour the conviction that, rightly understood, Revelation chapters two and three teach that the Church of Sardis, the age of the Reformation, would soon be superceded by the Philadelphian Church, the millennial age. The first section of the book presents Bröske the Reformed court preacher. The next section offers a very different portrait of Bröske, highlighting his chiliastic convictions and his literary work in promoting Philadelphian views. The last section presents a Bröske burdened by conflicts and polemics.
