"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, John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, MS
"Mathison ambitiously surveys the whole Bible book by book, yet with substantial detail at some of the most 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, coherent -- albeit variegated -- history of redemption and reminds the broader church that God is the Lord of time." --Michael J. Glodo, Associate Professor of Biblical Studies, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, FL
"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." --John Muether, Librarian and Associate Professor of Church History, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, FL
