Sometimes the Bible's story is summarized as creation, fall, redemption, restoration. But the future is not headed toward merely a restoration of Eden's goodness. From the very beginning, the Bible's story has always been headed toward consummation, toward glory. In this book, experienced Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie traces 9 themes--the tree of life, garden and wilderness, the image of God, clothing, Sabbath rest, marriage, the seed of the Serpent, the temple, and the city of Jerusalem--throughout the Bible, revealing how God's plan for the new creation will be far more glorious than the original. What's more, she shows how the new creation is breaking in even now, changing everything about our lives today. Combining theological depth with warmth and accessibility aimed at addressing today's needs, this book will help individuals or small groups understand the story of God's plan for the future of his people.
