"But let me just clarify something here. I have a lot of sympathy for the partial preterist point of view. I simply do not call myself a partial preterist because I don't agree with everything that the partial preterists say. I think that in some cases the partial preterists make the same mistake that the futurist does, only in reverse. The futurist is in essence reading the Bible with one hand and the newspaper with the other, and the partial preterist oftentimes is trying to correlate events in history with what they read in the book of Revelation - oftentimes when that particular allusion in Revelation is symbolically intended as opposed to having some literal correspondence in first century history."
