Item Description...
The End of the Beginning examines five themes found in Revelation 21-22 that William Dumbrell uses as a gateway into the Old Testament and the Bible as a whole. This serves then as a means of exploring each of the five themes from a theological perspective, answering the overarching question "Why is this such an appropriate way not only to finish the Book of Revelation but to conclude the story of the entire Bible?" Further, Dumbrell argues that each of the concepts is linked to the biblical concept of government, or in essence the kingdom of God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Highly recommended (and readable) thematic biblical theology  Dec 11, 2004
Dumbrell's book is a fine work of biblical theology, taking the creative approach of viewing Revelation 21-22 as the culmination of biblical typology and imagery, and from that starting point, working backwards to trace five streams of thought that feed into the vision: (1) New Jerusalem, (2) New Temple, (3) New Covenant, (4) New Israel, and (5) New Creation.

Each of the five chapters begins by considering the theme in Revelation 21-22, then traces its development through the OT and NT to gain a better understanding of its employment in this final vision. These sections often contain valuable exegetical insights, but their great value is in providing broad theological overviews of large segments of biblical material in which the respective themes feature prominently. His discussion of the New Covenant is especially provocative for its strong emphasis on continuity with the Old Covenant and an interesting approach to the way in which it is "new" (pp. 86-95). The summary sections that begin each chapter are also very helpful for getting a handle on the theme to be developed.

I have withheld the "fifth star" for some technical reasons. First, the book is a collection of Dumbrell's lectures from 1983 which could have been compiled in a better format. In its present form, the table of contents has no page numbers, notes come at the end of each chapter, and there are no indices (I would, in particular, like to see a Scripture index). Second, some of the themes could use a bit more development (the book is only 200pp.), and there is only one paragraph of conclusion at the end of the work. These two complaints aside, the book is a good read, well worth significant attention.
