by George Eldon Ladd

From the Publisher
Gordon D. Fee
"A welcoming reprinting. . . This classic exposition of 'inaugurated eschatology'—the kingdom of God as both 'already and not yet' in the ministry of Jesus himself—should serve a new generation of students and pastors as it did an earlier one."
