After 15+ years in the full preterist (aka hyper preterism) camp as a featured conference speaker, author, and pastor of a ‘full preterist church’, Samuel Frost renounced the heresy in 2010. This caused a frenzy among the full preterists. To this day, there is at least one full preterist website dedicated to “exposing” Sam on a daily basis. Naturally, the first question many full preterists asked was, “Why?” To dispel the lies and slanderous accusations (money, recognition, fear of men; to name a few) that quickly spread on full preterist websites, Sam wrote this brief, non-technical 83 page book, with a foreword by Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr., Th.D.

(Liberty Christian College), Samuel completed a M.A. in Christian Studies; M.A. in Religion, and Th.M. from Whitefield Theological Seminary, Lakeland, Florida (with combined credits in Hebrew from Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida – and in Greek from Church of God School of Theology, Cleveland, Tennessee; Now, Pentecostal Theological Seminary). Author of Full Preterist works, Misplaced Hope, Exegetical Essays on the Resurrection of the Dead and House Divided with Mike Sullivan, Dave Green and Ed Hassertt.

Frost co-founded Reign of Christ Ministries, and has lectured extensively for over 8 years at Full Preterist conferences, including the Evangelical Theological Society conference, of which he is currently a member (also a member of Society of Biblical Literature). Samuel has been ordained, and has functioned as Teaching Pastor at Christ Covenant Church in St. Petersburg, Florida (2002-2005). He helped host the popular debates between highly regarded Full Preterist author Don Preston and Thomas Ice (with Mark Hitchcock), and Don Preston and James B. Jordan. Samuel is widely regarded by many of his peers as being one of the foremost experts on prophecy, apocalypticism, and Preterist theology. He was highly influential in the Full Preterist movement, having been published by Don Preston (Exegetical Essays), footnoted in several Full Preterist works, as well as by scholars against Full Preterism (When Shall These Things Be?; Preterism: Orthodox, or Unorthodox; The Second Coming under Attack) and authored one Forward, Reading the Bible Through New Covenant Eyes, by Alan Bondar. He has come to denounce his Full Preterist views in 2010 and affirms the historic Christian Faith and orthodoxy. He penned a book detailing his departure by American Vision Publishing entitled, Why I Left Full Preterism. Samuel Frost is an Online Mentor in Biblical Studies and Theology at Vision International University, U.S.A., and owns/operates his own business in Florida with his wife Ann Marie, and his children, Janet, Jacob, Hunter, and Olivia.
