Using the narrative method of biblical theology, From Age to Age traces the eschatological themes of Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, emphasizing how each book of the Bible develops these themes that culminate in the coming of Christ and showing how individual texts fit into the overarching picture.
"Filling a crucial gap, From Age to Age is simultaneously sweeping in its scope, deeply informed on the specifics, and so readable that I'll be recommending this as the book to give to any Christian who asks me for an overview of the Bible. If you read, meditate on, and inwardly digest From Age to Age, you will have a deeper, richer, and fresher appreciation of the greatest story ever told."
"Meticulously comprehensive, a veritable compendium of biblical theology from Genesis to Revelation examining every possible nuance of eschatological insight, breathtaking in its scope, Mathison has provided us with an invaluable reference tool. A tour de force unlike any other on this hugely significant topic."
—Derek W. H. Thomas
"Mathison ambitiously surveys the whole Bible book by book, yet with substantial detail at some of the critical points and does so with scholarly care, exegetical soundness, and philosophical breadth. Where one might vary from individual conclusions here and there, his survey of options is representative and his analysis well argued. Scholars, pastors, students, and learned laypeople need this kind of analysis, which relates a unified, coherant—albeit variegated—history of redeption and reminds the broader church that God is the Lord of time."
—Michael J. Glodo
"A survey of the Bible that does not lose the forest for the trees. On the one hand, Mathison analyzes each book with careful attention to exegetical and critical issues. On the other hand, he identifies the entire canon's contribution to the grand biblical theme of promise and fulfillment. I do not know of a more accessible and up-to-date introduction to the Bible from a Reformed perspective."
