From Land to Lands, from Eden to the Renewed Earth:
A Christ-Centred Biblical Theology of the Promised Land
The land is an important theme in the Bible. It is a theme through which the whole biblical history found in the Old and New Testaments can be studied and analyzed. Looking at the land in the Bible from its beginnings in the garden of Eden this book approaches the theme from three distinct perspectives – holiness, the convenant, and the kingdom. Through careful analysis the author recognizes that the land has been universalized in Christ, as anticipated in the Old Testament, and as a result promotes a missional theology of the land that underlines the social and territorial dimensions of redemption.
"Munther Isaac's From Land to Lands, From Eden to the Renewed Earth represents a new and significant work in biblical theology . . . This work is not only a significant contribution to biblical scholarship, its contemporary relevance makes it a must buy for students of the Bible and theology alike." - Dr Thomas Harvey Academic Dean, Oxford Centre for Mission Studies
"This is an extraordinary book. It does not fall into the trap of playing Christian universality against Israel's particularity in view of the "Holy Land." It sees the unity of the Bible as a whole in regaining the universal scope of God's particular covenant with Israel to establish justice on earth . . ." - Dr Ulrich Duchrow, Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Heidelberg
