Publisher's Summary

Just like we do today, the writers and chief actors of the Old Testament felt a deep longing for the presence of God. It is symbolized in the temple ruins, and before it the temple itself, and before that the ark of the covenant and the tabernacle that housed it, and before that the Garden of Eden. In response to this longing, God shares his ultimate mission, in which his people play a part: the expansion of Eden, the temple of God's presence, to all peoples throughout the earth. The temple has always been a source of rich scholarship and theological reflection, but what does it mean for the church's ongoing mission in the world? G. K. Beale and Mitchell Kim take temple theology off the bookshelf and bring it to our modern-day life, where the church is instructed and exhorted in its purpose. From Eden to the new Jerusalem, we are God's temple on the earth in our day, the first fruits of the new creation. God has always desired to dwell among us; now the church must follow its missional call to extend the borders of God's kingdom and take his presence to the ends of the earth.

A Crash Course in "Temple Glasses"

When you put on Beale & Kim's glasses, and see the Bible through the lens of God's ever expanding tabernacling presence, so many passages take on a weight and beauty unnoticed before. This book is a good summary of Beale's work on the temple. Because of the nature of the book it goes at a break neck pace. You will find yourself needing to pause and digest, or look up the references which are fired at you with frequency and speed.
