The Presence of the Future: The Eschatology of Biblical Realism
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1974 - 370 páginas
George Eldon Ladd's comprehensive treatment of New Testament eschatology has become the definitive discussion of the theological interpretation known as "inaugurated eschatology." Reflecting profound biblical insight and a balanced treatment of conflicting views, this volume convincingly develops Ladd's thesis that the kingdom of God involves two great movements -- its present fulfillment in Jesus and its future consummation in the last days. Ladd begins this revised edition (formerly titled Jesus and the Kingdom) by taking readers step by step through the findings of his predecessors and contemporaries on the great debate as to whether the kingdom of God promised by Jesus is now, in the immediate future, or in some unknown time to come. He then traces the prophetic expectation of the kingdom in the Old Testament, pursues the development of this expectation through the intertestamental literature, and, against this background, reconstructs the teaching and mission of Jesus. Ultimately, Ladd finds the key to understanding the kingdom in the concept of "the rule of God." His interpretation of the divine reign brings together the Old Testament promise of the kingdom, its fulfillment in history, and its consummation at the end of history. - Back cover.

This book is very helpful to theological seminaries that are offering courses that are related to spiritual gifts and ministry and other courses. However, I have not been able to peruse through the entire book because I don't have a copy of my own. Is it possible for a person in Nigeria to buy a copy of this book in order to make a more meaningful review of it? Akintunde S. O. Nigeria
