I have come from Dispensationalism to Full Preterism. I have had so many problems with the time statements in the NT and have been unsettled ever since. However I have been unsettled the preterist problem of "now what?" as well.
I think it is a odd to argue that now that all has been fulfilled in history it still has continuation nontheless. (That is "from the mouth of full preterists)
So I find your thoughts very refreshing. I would hope I could get in touch with you directly somehow. They have really given me some new insight. And i am very happy you revivied your two sites!
There's one thing that bugs me: That I can not find anyone on the internet that has thought about these things well enough to be able to talk with me about them in a scriptural way. So often I find people saying half-truths. Things that fit not quite well. FPs of the Max King type with their CBV. Or Part Prets with their appeal to creeds but yet talking about "a coming" and "the coming", Or straw-men that are being attacked. Unfair appeals to authorities such as men or creeds, emotional arguments or just frustration.
People trying to debunk full preterism whilst not even knowing what it says in the most basic sense.
I find most people are not diligent enough to do their research well before they speak.
R.C. Sproul in his book "the last days according to Jesus" is a rare example of a humble and diligent scholar.
I would be so refreshed to get in touch with you personally somehow. Is there any way I can do that?
I find it interesting that you are using a Mormon artist's rendering of Christ gazing down at Jerusalem. Greg Olsen is a well known Mormon artist.

It is a great one, for sure. I think my favorite is by Kaulbach: https://www.preteristarchive.com/1846_kaulbach_destruction
Still exploring where I best sit in these various preterist categories. One thing I know, I've definitely abandoned dispensationalism.
