Item description for Heaven on Earth: The Temple in Biblical Theology by T. Desmond Alexander & Simon Gathercole...
Overview The temple stood at the very heart of Israelite religion and casts its shadow across Christian faith and spirituality. The temple is the biblical symbol par excellence of the glory of God's presence with his people. Any Christian theology that attempts to grapple with God's indwelling of creation, with heaven on earth, must get to grips with the meaning of the temple and its fulfillment in Christ and his body, the church. In this book evangelical scholars examine the temple in all the key Old and New Testament documents, from Genesis to Revelation and then consider its contemporary significance. This book not only makes an important contribution to the study of the temple in various biblical texts but also to the project of a unified Biblical Theology and its implications for Systematic Theology.
