(1951—1997) was a Calvinist pastor, Christian Reconstructionist, and author of several books on eschatology and preterism. He contributed three books on eschatology: Paradise Restored (1985),
Days of Vengeance (1987), and The Great Tribulation
His book Productive Christians in an Age of Guilt-Manipulators: A Biblical Response to Ronald J. Sider
(1981) was a response to Ronald J. Sider's best-selling book, Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger: A Biblical Study
(1977), which promoted various programs of wealth redistribution by the government. Chilton argued that the Bible either does not authorize such programs or explicitly teaches against them.
He died in 1997 at the age of 45 due to a heart attack.
