Inhaltsangabe: Many people think eschatology refers to events occurring at the end of history. In this book, two scholars with expertise in biblical eschatology argue that God's kingdom breaking into this world through Jesus Christ has inaugurated a new creation, a reality that should shape pastoral leadership and be reflected in the life and ministry of the church. Brief and accessibly written, this book articulates the practical implications of G. K. Beale's New Testament Biblical Theology and features an introductory chapter by Beale. Each chapter concludes with practical suggestions and a list of books for further study.
Making All Things New shows that God's kingdom breaking into this world through Jesus Christ has inaugurated a new creation, a reality that should shape pastoral leadership and be reflected in the life and ministry of the church.
"For those who think that biblical theology (especially the teaching about inaugurated and consummated eschatology) doesn't relate to daily life and ministry, Gladd and Harmon demonstrate that eschatology permeates every aspect of ministry, from prayer to preaching to missions. The book is filled with practical suggestions, but what makes it unique and powerful is that the practical implications are rooted in what the Scriptures teach about eschatology. Readers will be instructed, edified, and encouraged."
-- Thomas Schreiner, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"It's long been repeated that Christians live in the 'now' and the 'not yet.' We stand in the middle of an old world dying and a new creation already born in our midst through Jesus Christ. How does this sense of living between the ages shape our conception of the church, pastoring, and ministry? In this book two younger scholars, with the assistance of Greg Beale, show what it means to be end-time people. They offer some great theological reflections and practical advice on how to lead people who are waiting with patience and purpose for the day when God is all in all."
-- Michael F. Bird, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia
"Here is where ecclesiology and eschatology meet. Although end-times teaching is woven into the fabric of God's Word, what this teaching says about the church is seldom considered by pastors. A careful look at Scripture shows that the church is a profoundly eschatological community. Gladd and Harmon offer skillful guidance on how a biblical understanding of the end times is crucial to the church's ministry and to its very identity for today. By looking at the entirety of the biblical witness, they demonstrate that God's eschatological design for the church is both a future hope and a present reality."
-- Daniel M. Gurtner, Bethel Seminary
