Product Description

After surveying the debate of eschatology step by step through the findings of others, George Ladd discusses the promise of the kingdom, the fulfillment of the promise, and the consummation of the promise.

This book was formerly titled Jesus and the Kingdom.

Editorial Reviews

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."
