Product Description

The temple has always been a source of rich scholarship, but what does it mean today? Tracing the theme of God's dwelling place from Genesis to Revelation, Beale and Kim demonstrate how the Lord has always desired to dwell among us; and challenge the church to bring God's presence to the ends of the earth.

Publisher's Description

Preaching's 2014 Best Books for Preachers 2014 Best Missions-Oriented Biblical Study, from Byron Borger, Hearts and Minds Bookstore Just like we do today, the writers and chief actors of the Old Testament felt a deep longing for the presence of God. It is symbolized in the temple ruins, and before it the temple itself, and before that the ark of the covenant and the tabernacle that housed it, and before that the Garden of Eden. In response to this longing, God shares his ultimate mission, in which his people play a part: the expansion of Eden, the temple of God's presence, to all peoples throughout the earth. The temple has always been a source of rich scholarship and theological reflection, but what does it mean for the church's ongoing mission in the world? G. K. Beale and Mitchell Kim take temple theology off the bookshelf and bring it to our modern-day life, where the church is instructed and exhorted in its purpose. From Eden to the new Jerusalem, we are God's temple on the earth in our day, the firstfruits of the new creation. God has always desired to dwell among us; now the church must follow its missional call to extend the borders of God's kingdom and take his presence to the ends of the earth.

Endorsements

God dwelling in the midst of his people: this staggering vision is the heart of God's covenantal purposes from Genesis to Revelation. God Dwells Among Us brings decades of scholarship on this topic to a wider audience. More than that, it shows how this major biblical theme is the engine of mission in the world today. This clear and compelling study is a real feast.
-Michael Horton,
Westminster Seminary, California

In Scripture, God dwells not only up above the world but also among us, with us and within us. Our hearts long to hear more of God's presence, his promise to be with us. One important way for us to understand God's presence in Scripture is through its teaching about the temple and of Jesus as the true temple. Greg Beale has developed this theme cogently in scholarly writings. In God Dwells Among Us he and Mitchell Kim have made these ideas accessible to working pastors. It is a valuable aid to preaching and an excellent antidote to the feeling of loneliness that afflicts many today. I recommend it highly.
-John Frame,
Reformed Theological Seminary
