The passage where some manuscripts refer to "the judgment seat of Christ" but most to that of God ( Rom14:10 ) forbids us to judge one another and tells us that God or Christ will judge us all. The judgment seat is, of course, more than a place where people are known for what they have done. Probably we should understand this to mean that the Father will judge us all through the Son (cf. John5:22 ).

The New Testament has much to say about the day when Christ will evaluate His Bride, the Church, when all true believers in Christ will see Him just after the resurrection of dead believers and the rapture of living believers. According to the Bible, this event could even occur today! Are you ready for it? For many centuries Christians have been confused about the timing, participants, seriousness, purpose, and final outcome of this great divine evaluation of the Church. Is it the next revealed event on God’s calendar? Will all Christians be involved or only leaders? Is this event distinct from God’s judgment of unbelievers? Is this a judgment to determine a person’s eternal salvation or eternal reward? Will this event be essentially positive or will it involve punishment for disobedience? What effects will this judgment have afterwards in Christ’s kingdom? THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST was written by Dr. Samuel L. Hoyt as his doctoral dissertation to answer these relevant questions from Scripture with careful, balanced, and thorough exegesis. THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHIRST addresses a vital subject of eternal significance for every Christian.

Having read this fine volume on the Doctrine of the Judgement Seat of Christ I'd be remiss for not recommending it to any serious student of God's Word. Mr. Hoyt's even handed, dispensational treatment of this central doctrine covers each of the major positions, identifies his reasons for the position he espouses, then uses that information to build the next point of the doctrine. This volume is not only enlightening but uplifting. This subject has been so misunderstood and viciously applied that many will find it's value far exceeds it's price. Too often fellow Christians treat their prodigal brothers/sons with contempt at the drop of a dime. After you've read this book you'll stop skulking about sheepishly and start looking at everyone in the light of Grace, as God does. Used or new, pick up a copy of this book, renovate your thinking, and start being the Christian God wants you to be! Mark 4:40.

This book did a very good job clearing up confusion most people have about the End Time Judgements. It is a little repetitive on some items but should clear up most of the confusions between the Bema Seat and the Great White Throne Judgement at the end of the Tribulation Period, as well as who will be at each one and what they will be judged on. It should ease some feelings for certain individuals as to what they will be judged on but then on the other hand may cause some concerns for others. I am glad I read it because it cleared up several things for me and should for others.

Dr. Hoyt has provided an excellent, comprehensive understanding of the judgment seat of Christ. He states that the purpose of this study is "to carefully establish the limits of this judgment in regard to its nature and results" (p. 179). The thesis is "that the judgment seat of Christ is a most solemn evaluation at which there will be no judicial punishment for the believer's sins, whether confessed or unconfessed, but rather commendation according to the faithfulness of the Christian's life" (p. 15).

Hoyt rejects the prominent view of only one general judgment (pp. 17-22) espousing the understanding of most premillenialists that there are five major eschatological judgments (pp. 22-23). The judgment seat of Christ is specific to the church-age believer and occurs between the rapture and the second-coming of Christ (pp. 47-54). In describing the judgment seat of Christ the author provides individual chapters on the setting, nature, purpose, standards (or criteria) of judgment, and extent. Chapters ten and eleven are dedicated to the rewards received by Christians at the judgment and Hoyt tackles the thorny issues concerning the meaning of loss and shame that will be experienced by some at this event (chapter 9). In each of these discussions Hoyt does an excellent job of biblical exegesis.

My favorite chapter is the third dealing with the etymological and cultural background of the "bçma" seat. Here Hoyt provides important information concerning the use of the Greek word "bçma" during New Testament times, and its distinction from kritçrion, which can also be translated "judgment seat." Hoyt clearly demonstrates that while the words can be used interchangeably to a degree, "bçma generally denotes a place of prominence, while kritçrion specifically refers to a place of prosecution" (p. 45). Thus bema is used most often for the reward seat at athletic events while kritçrion is used exclusively for the court of justice. Historically, Hoyt lays the background of the four great Pan-Hellenic games (Olympic, Pythian, Isthmian and Nemean), paralleling these contests with Paul's writing concerning the Christian athlete and his rewards. This is a most interesting and helpful section which sheds much light on the New Testament metaphors and teachings. In particular, at the judgment (bçma) seat of the Grecian games the contestants did not face judicial punishment but received rewards according to their success in the events. Similarly, the Christian will not be condemned or punished at Christ's bçma, but will gain rewards, or suffer loss of the same, depending upon how he has run the race.

The Judgment Seat of Christ is a thorough and valuable study of the subject. Whether used as a textbook or for personal study I recommend it highly. I do, however, have one caveats: The Judgment Seat of Christ is a rewrite of Dr. Hoyt's doctoral dissertation submitted in 1977. As such, Hoyt offers no documentation and lists no bibliographical works past 1976. While this does not deter from the biblical material, which of course has not changed since the mid-1970s, I would have liked to have seen Hoyt engage some of the modern scholars on the subject. Perhaps an appendix or two could be added to any future reprint addressing what theologians from N. T. Wright to Randy Alcorn are writing about the kingdom of God and heaven. I might be among the few, but I would find such a discussion beneficial. As it stands The Judgment Seat of Christ should find a place in the libraries of serious students of Scripture.

Very interesting and exciting book. I found it to be a bit harder read than I expected. I go to the page of contents and choose what I want to read about. This makes the reading easier for me personally because of all the large words. All in all a very informative book.
