Overview

Readers will understand a books final chapter only if they have understood all that came before it. Likewise, "in order to understand biblical eschatology" writes Keith Mathison, "we must understand the entire Bible." From Age to Age looks not only at the fulfillment of God's purposes at the end of history, but also at the stages along the way. The millennium and second coming of Christ are eschatologically important-but Christ's first coming was the beginning of the end. Deftly working through each book of the Bible, Mathison traces God's preparations throughout redemptive history, which have laid everything in place for the last day.

Editorial Reviews

Derek W. H. Thomas
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.
Michael J. Glodo
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. 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. He ambitiously surveys the whole Bible book-by-book, yet with substantial detail at some of the most critical points and does so with scholarly care, exegetical soundness and philosophical breadth. Where one might vary from individual conclusions here and there, his survey of options is representative and his analysis well-argued. Scholars, pastors, students and learned lay people need this kind of analysis which relates a unified, coherent – albeit variegated – history of redemption. From Age to Age has the potential to introduce a redemptive-historical biblical theology to the broader church whose struggle to comprehend its own place in the flow of human history desperately needs a reminder that God is the Lord of time.
Michael Horton
This book is evidence that the ‘Reformation movement’ that is afoot in our day is maturing beyond critique to construction. Filling a crucial gap, From Age to Age is simultaneously sweeping in its scope, deeply-informed on the specifics, and so readable that I’ll be recommending this as the book to give to any Christian who asks me for an overview of the Bible. If you read, meditate on, and inwardly digest the content of From Age to Age, you will have a deeper, richer, and fresher appreciation for the greatest story ever told.
John Muether
A survey of the Bible that does not lose the forest for the trees. On the one hand, Mathison analyzes each book with careful attention to exegetical and critical issues. On the other hand, he identifies the entire canon’s contribution to the grand biblical theme of promise and fulfillment. I do not know of a more accessible and up-to-date introduction to the Bible from a Reformed perspective.
