I want to learn more about preterism/partial preterism. Specifically how prophecy has already been fulfilled from the preterist/partial preterist viewpoint. Thanks.
There is a big difference between preterist and partial preterist views. A full preterist view is unbiblical. It says everything has been fulfilled. That Jesus already came back a second time and there really is nothing else left to happen from Revelation. The partial preterist view is the belief that some, usually most, of the things in Revelation took place. Things like the Antichrist and mark of the beast have taken place. Things like the persecution under Nero and other rulers around that time help fulfill much of the prophecy. They believe there is another coming though where everything will be made perfect. I'm sure others could do a much better job of explaining the views but I hope this post helps. A great book on the 4 major end times views is Revelation: Four Views : A Parallel Commentary by Steve Gregg
I would agree with Matthew here...
Full Preterism (all the prophecies of the Bible including the return of Jesus have already been fulfilled) is in my view 'heretical'.
Partial Preterism (The prophecies of the 'Great Tribulation' were fulfilled during the time of the sack of Jerusalem in 70 AD) to me is very compelling.
Kenneth Gentry is the Partial Preterist author that has been most informative to me personally. Some of what he associates with the sack of Jerusalem I still personally associate with Jesus future Second Coming. However I find myself in agreement with him on most of the points he makes.
Some of Gentry's books are:
