Publisher's Description

Everyone loves a story, and The Divine Rescue retells the

grandest Story of them all. It is the tale of a perfect world

gone astray, and of the God who stops at nothing to rescue

that world and the people who inhabit it.

In a style both illuminating and entertaining, the author recounts highlights of the multi-layered saga of salvation from Genesis to Revelation. Seamlessly woven into this gripping drama are profound Christian truths shared by all the faithful.

This book is intended for anyone, from seeker to scholar, who has ever wept for a broken world, who has tasted pain and passion as a partner in the human plight, who has glimpsed a glory as yet unfulfilled and sensed that there is more to come.

Endorsements

“In The Divine Rescue, Edward Fudge guides us through the sweetest of stories—God’s relentless pursuit of his fallen people. The drama is real. The drama is ours and, thanks to Edward, the drama is captured on paper.” — Max Lucado, pastor and bestselling author

“I read it all in a single setting and was blown away! The Divine Rescue is the ultimate ‘once upon a time’ and the ultimate ‘happy ever after’ of the human race. Any other tale is a digression from the steadfast pursuit of a Father who runs ahead of us to be sure the gates of eternity are open when we all arrive there at the end. This is your story. Read not, unless you are willing to stake your future in the cosmic epic of your own rescue from meaninglessness.” — Calvin Miller, artist and best-selling author, from the Foreword

"I have come to respect Edward Fudge as an elder brother in the Lord of keen intellect and warm heart. He has written several great theological books that the average follower of Jesus can truly appreciate. This book is one of his finest. It brings out the Divine Rescue through Jesus in a way that is at once scholarly, heart-warming, and approachable for the average Christian. I recommend it highly." — John Michael Talbot, “Troubadour for the Lord”; founder, The Brothers and Sisters of Charity at Little Portion Hermitage

“When Edward asked me to read his newest book, I thought, "Oh, dear God. What if I don't like it? How do you tell a new friend it was just an 'ok' read?" Plus, I'm not that crazy about most Christian writing these days. (That's another story.) So I sat down, sighed, and cracked open Edward Fudge's new book, The Divine Rescue. When I looked up, a few hours had passed, and I had read it in one sitting . . . . I could not put it down. Lost track of time.

“The book is suited to one of my particular tastes, which is retelling the story. Just telling the story. After all, we preachers would do better to spend more time simply telling the story of an active creator, and less time trying to convince everyone we have "answers" for the church. That's the beauty of Edward's new work.

“I don't often recommend these kinds of books. I think most of them are trite. But this is great scholarship put in such a way that it lives up to its billing as a proclamation of a gripping drama. However, the reason I like the book and will share it with others is not because of its writing or its writer. I recommend it because it does what good preaching is supposed to do: It tells the story.” —Jeff Christian, in The Empty Pulpit (13 May 2010), online

Foreword

What a great book! I read it all in a single setting and was blown away! The Divine Rescue is the ultimate “once upon a time” and the ultimate “happy ever after” of the human race. It is an anthropology of grace, a warm trek through the history of God’s autobiography on the planet. It is a book of such unity that it makes clear the 40 writers of the Bible were serving a single cosmic heart in search of the human rescue.

From the Garden of Eden to the Garden of Gethsemane there is only one significant story. Any other tale is a digression from the steadfast pursuit of a Father who runs ahead of us to be sure the gates of eternity are open when we all arrive there at the end of human history.

This is no tale of mere scripture. It is your story. Read not, unless you are willing to stake your future in the cosmic epic of your own rescue from meaninglessness. - CALVIN MILLER, Best-selling author of The Singer,Life is Mostly Edges—A Memoir,and many other books

    When I looked up, a few hours had past, and I had read this book in one sitting. It was just like I was in college all over again and lost track of time in the ACU library only to be kicked out by the recorded voice saying, "The library is now closing." Plus, at ACU they always kicked you out by playing "The Lord Bless You and Keep You."The book is suited to one of my particular tastes, not the least of which is retelling the story. Just telling the story. After all, we preachers would do better to spend more time simply telling the story of an active creator, and less time trying to convince everyone we have "answers" for the church. That's the beauty of Edward's new work.But one particular slant early in the book informed the way I read for those few hours. An old rabbinic tradition about the creation narrative describes our inclinations as two-fold: On one hand, we are inclined to do good; on the other hand, we are inclined, not toward doing evil, but toward self-preservation."For this Creator God who acts is also the God who speaks; and, throughout the Rescue Story, he regularly tells his people what he intends to do and, later, the thing that he has done." (89)God is active in our lives.God communicates with us.God is in the business of redeeming you today.God has already sent his son.I don't often recommend these kinds of books. I think most of them are trite. But this is great scholarship put in such a way that it lives up to its billing as a proclamation of a gripping drama. However, the reason I like the book and will share it with others is not because of its writing or its writer. I recommend it because it does what good preaching is supposed to do: It tells the story.
