Kingdom Prologue: Genesis Foundations for a Covenantal Worldview

Kingdom Prologue CoverStatus: Available

Publisher’s Description

As intimated by the subtitle, ‘Genesis Foundations for a Covenantal Worldview‘, the immediate literary focus of this study is the book of Genesis and its account of the formative ages in the eschatological movement of the kingdom of God from creation to consummation. As also indicated by the subtitle, our biblical-theological commentary on Genesis is designed to uncover the foundations of God’s covenantally administered kingdom with its major historical developments and its institutional structures and functions. In this way ‘Kingdom Prologue’ seeks to provide an introductory sketch of the overall shape of the biblical worldview and the character of biblical religion.
