Item description for God, Heaven, and Har Magedon: A Covenantal Tale of Cosmos and Telos by Meredith G. Kline...

Overview
From the Author's Preface: It could be this octogerian's last book and there were several things I wanted to do. One was to provide a primer in covenant theology. Another was to make more accessible the gist of some of my previous biblio-theological studies and to do so in a form serviceable to a wider readership than most of my publications. The major move in this democratic direction was to enliven the analysis of the covenants by introducing the series of covenant administrations within the intriguing story line of Har Magedon, the mountain of God. Extending as it does from creation to consummation, the tale of Har Magedon readily accommodates the total history of the covenants . . . Moreover, quite apart from such considerations the current state of secularized and dispensational versions of "Armageddon" (fantastic fiction all) makes a review of the biblical Har Magedon motif timely. Though the covenants remain the theological foundation and heart of the matter, by its adoption as our narrative framework, Har Magedon becomes the dominant surface theme. As we track this theme through the Scriptures we discover a recurring pattern, an eschatological megastructure that appears in each of the typological world ages culminating respectively at mounts Ararat and Sinai/Zion and then once again, climactically, in the antitypical New Covenant age. This Har Magedon paradigm, which shapes our telling of the covenantal tale, consists in the following complex of elements: establishment of a kingdom covenant by the Lord of Har Magedon; a meritorious accomplishment by the covenant grantee, triumphant in the Har Magedon conflict; a common grace interim before the coming of the covenanted kingdom; an antichrist crisis; consummation of the Glory-Kingdom through a last judgement victory of the covenant Lord in a final battle of Har MagedoIf only in condensed, digest fashion the present work is thus a comprehensive biblio-theological survey of the kingdom of God from Eden to the New Jerusalem.

Reviews - What do customers think about God, Heaven, and Har Magedon: A Covenantal Tale of Cosmos and Telos?

Great gift  Jan 24, 2008
I purchased the book as a gift. The recipient has enjoyed every minute of his reading time.
 
A Must Read  Jun 19, 2006
Impressive! This is a must read for any Christian called to a teaching and/or preaching ministry.

Once again, Dr. Kline delivers an impressive exegetical analysis, as he traces the "Mountain of God" typology through the Bible. In this book, he argues that the "Mountain of God" helps illustrate the seen and unseen kingdoms of God, from the Garden of Eden to the final judgment sequences in Daniel, Revelation, and other apocalyptic texts. This book complements Kingdom Prologue and some of his earlier books which develop the covenant worldview/theology; it also includes academic papers which he has written.

I think this book will challenge the commonly held apocalyptic/eschatological views of many faithful Christians in the decades to come. In so doing, it will hopefully enable God's Church to come to a better understanding and fulfillment of its role in this world and the next.
