About the Author

Meredith G. Kline was Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He received his B.D. and Th.M. degrees from Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia) and his Ph.D. degree in Assyriology and Egyptology from Dropsie College. Professor Kline maintained an active writing and teaching ministry, serving on the faculty of Westminster Theological Seminary in Escondido, California. He was also an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. The collection of essays in the recently-published Creator, Redeemer, Consummator, a festschrift written in honor of Dr. Kline, attests to the indelible influence his work has exerted on contemporary biblical and theological scholarship.

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.

Publisher Description (from the preface written by the author Meredith Kline): 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 accessable 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 serface 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.

God, Heaven, and Har Magedon serves as an excellent followup to Kingdom Prologue. Where the latter formed the groundwork the former builds upon the foundation. In contrast to Kingdom Prologue this work appears to be better edited and structured. The flow is much easier to follow.

Tracing the concept of "God's Mountain" from Genesis to Revelation Kline accomplishes in reverse what Kingdom Prologue accomplished looking forward. Before beginning his survey of God's Mountain, Meredith Kline exegetes a key passage in Revelation and then takes things in an unexpected direction. Realizing that Armageddon is most likely a greek transliteration of the Hebrew "Har Magedon" Kline takes this exegetical insight and then explores how the Har Magedon develops throughout the Canon.

God, Heaven, and Har Magedon was Meredith Kline's last book before he was called to be with Christ in the "Upper Register." This work is a good example of biblical theology and displays the progressive revelation of the Old and New Testament.

If you struggle with "Klinean" terminology visit The Upper Register, this site is dedicated (among other things) to the working out of Meredith Kline's biblical theological insights.
