Summary

Books on eschatology often focus solely on topics such as the Second Coming of Christ and the millennium. However, because the first advent of Christ inaugurated the last days, a complete study of biblical eschatology must include a study of Christ’s first advent as well as his second. It must also include a study of God’s preparations in redemptive history for the eschatological first advent of Christ.

Unlike many previous studies of eschatology, From Age to Age looks not only at the consummation of God’s redemptive-historical purposes at the end of history, but also at the stages in the unfolding of those purposes. Using the narrative method of biblical theology, this book traces the eschatological themes of Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, emphasizing how each book of the Bible develops these themes that culminate in the coming of Christ and showing how individual texts within those books fit into the overarching picture.

 “Meticulously comprehensive, a veritable compendium of biblical theology from Genesis to Revelation examining every possible nuance of eschatological insight, breathtaking in its scope, Mathison has provided us with an invaluable reference tool. A tour de force unlike any other on this hugely significant topic.”
— Derek W. H. Thomas, John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary
