For those schooled in the likes of Vos, Ridderbos, and Kline, the apprehension of eschatology broadly conceived is like Dorothy's move from black-and-white Kansas to Technicolor Oz," says Michael Glodo of Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando. "But for too long this gift has been the buried talent of its modest circle of possessors. Keith Mathison goes a long way in unearthing this gift in From Age to Age."
Although books on eschatology often focus on the second coming of Christ and the millennium, a complete study of biblical eschatology must include Christ's first advent, which inaugurated the last days. It must also include a study of God's preparations throughout redemptive history for the eschatological first advent of Christ.
From Age to Age looks not only at the consummation of God's redemptive-historical purposes at the end of history, but also at their unfolding stages. Using the narrative method of biblical theology, Mathison traces the eschatological themes of Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, emphasizing how each book of the Bible develops these themes, which culminate in the coming of Christ.
"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
