Product Description

Just as the Old Testament book of Genesis begins with creation, where humans live in the presence of their Lord, so the New Testament book of Revelation ends with an even more glorious new creation where all of the redeemed dwell with the Lord and his Christ.

The historical development between the beginning and the end is crucial, for the journey from Eden to the new Jerusalem proceeds through the land promised to Abraham. The Promised Land is the place where God's people will once again live under his lordship and experience his blessed presence.

In this stimulating study from the New Studies in Biblical Theology series, Oren Martin demonstrates how, within the redemptive-historical framework of God's unfolding plan, the land promise advances the place of the kingdom that was lost in Eden. This promise also serves as a type throughout Israel's history that anticipates the even greater land, prepared for all of God's people, that will result from the person and work of Christ and that will be enjoyed in the new creation for eternity.

About the Series:
Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. They aim to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

Editorial Reviews

"Martin's book is a good example of biblical theology, and helpfully presents a comprehensive look at the land promise in the Bible, accomplishing precisely what he sets out to do."
"Theologies of 'the land' of Israel have taken various forms. One thinks of earlier works, such as the magisterial tome by W. D. Davies that was descriptively rich but did not attempt a biblical synthesis. Of course, there have also been many contributions that attempt to tie the various 'land' promises to the re-founding of the nation of Israel more than half a century ago. Dr Martin paints his biblical theology of the land on a grander scale. He argues that the land promises constitute part of a trajectory that begins with the loss of 'land' at the expulsion from Eden and ends, finally, in the new heaven and the new earth. The resulting synthesis of the land promises, kingdom promises and eschatology is thought-provoking and sometimes moving."
"This book is a tremendous example of a diachronic, biblical-theological study of the Bible. Martin does a wonderful job surveying the biblical landscape while incorporating a broad range of opinions from contemporary scholarship. . . . Martin's argument is too comprehensive and coherent to be disregarded. I recommend it to all who would dare to have their presuppositions challenged and minds sharpened. This is an excellent book."
" Bound for the Promised Land is an insightful work that will lead to much flipping back and forth in readers' Bibles as they go through it. I enjoyed making some new notes and re-highlighting some key points. Martin's exegesis is solid, and the work is great for those interested in eschatology and biblical prophecy. By putting together a book focused exclusively on the land promise from a perspective that takes seriously the whole of biblical teaching on the topic, Martin has done a service for those interested in eschatology. I recommend it as a worthy read."
"Revised and condensed from Martin's dissertation, the book is the most recent release in IVP's 'New Studies in Biblical Theology' series. While various studies have focused on the theme of land in the Pentateuch and Joshua, not many carry the theme through the Davidic Covenant and the prophetic literature, let alone the New Testament. Martin's work thus seeks to trace the land theme throughout the entire Bible, rooted in fundamental assumptions about Scripture's authority, theological continuity and the need for a grammatical-historical method of interpretation with a view toward canonical fulfillment."
"I heartily recommend this volume to serious students of Scripture who want to know their Bibles better. If there was no 'whole-Bible biblical theology' on God's land promises prior to this book, then Bound for the Promised Land most certainly ensures that there is one now, and an important one at that. . . . As an instructor, I am already trying to find a way to work this volume into one of my courses, which may be the highest praise I can give a new study like this one. With this addition, the New Studies in Biblical Theology series by IVP continues to establish itself as one of the most important evangelical academic series in the field. I am confident that there is plenty in this volume for anyone wanting to understand the organic relationship of the whole Bible better. Martin has provided a real treat for evangelicals. Enjoy it."
"This book is a tremendous example of a diachronic, biblical-theological study of the Bible. Martin does a wonderful job surveying the biblical landscape while incorporating a broad range of opinions from contemporary scholarship. He argues his case clearly and convincingly without being overly polemical. He does not overstate his position, and shows great respect for those with whom he disagrees. . . . Martin's argument is too comprehensive and coherent to be disregarded. I recommend it to all who would dare to have their presuppositions challenged and minds sharpened."
