The eschatological is an older strand in revelation than the soteric (Geerhardus Vos). Last Things First explores this insight, fundamental for a sound overall understanding of Scripture, with valuable insights of its own. With an extensive awareness of and reference to relevant literature, it addresses in a stimulating fashion issues that bear on such basic biblical themes as God's purposes in creation, the relationship between creation and redemption, and the work of Christ. While there is room to disagree at points, anyone interested in the biblical basis for covenant theology will read Fesko with great profit.(Richard B. Gaffin, Charles Krahe Professor of Biblical & Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia)
This rigourous application of a Christ centered interpretative method should be emulated in all of our studies of Scripture.(New Horizons Magazine)
"The book is an informative, instructive and enlightening read for anyone interested in God's work of salvation. It is stimulating and pregnant with ideas for those engaged in preaching the good news. I would recommend the book highly."(Scottish Bulletin of Theology)

As a confessional credo-baptist I disagree with his view that the Covenant of Grace is one covenant under multiple administrations. Still, there is so much of his work with which I can and do agree.
While the whole work is very fine, the arguments he presents for Eden as a type of the temple are superb. Having listened to one of his Systematics lectures, I could tell even from that brief experience that Fesko knows his typology, and I hope to read more from him along this vein in the future.
My only negative is the author's effort to distance himself from the traditional view of creation--that God created the universe is six literal 24-hour days. Science is based on imperical evidence, which disqualifies it from ever arriving at the truth of creation. It makes theories and throws them out only to make better ones, but can never prove first cause.
Otherwise, I highly recommend the read.
