Product Description

In From Eden to the New Jerusalem T. Desmon Alexander illuminates a global biblical theology through the lens of the final chapters of Revelation. These chapters, anticipating the arrival of God's new creation bring to fulfillment the entire biblical story and as such represent Christianity's "meta-story" to which the entirety of Scripture points.

Reading Scripture in this way radically re-focuses our approach to the Bible, and frees us to understand Revelation and God's purposes in responsible and in biblically holistic ways.

Publisher's Description

God has given us the reasons for creation and our existence in the Bible. "by resolving an intricate plot that sheds light on the entire story," Alexander writes. Using this theory to start from the denouement, or resolution, in Revelation's last verses and work backward, Alexander pieces together the Bible's overarching plot. The resulting picture reveals the reasons for creation and life that have eluded those who seek to answer life's biggest questions without first placing themselves in God's story.
