The Gospel of Genesis: Studies in Protology and Eschatology argues that there is an underlying eschatology in Genesis that foresees the sweep of redemptive history and the end of all things as, after the pattern of the beginning, a new creation. Gage examines the structure of, and literary parallels in, the historical records, identifying five major theological themes with a Genesis 1–7 basis. He traces these themes through Scripture, showing that the Bible’s eschatology is intimately bound up with the protology of the early chapters of Genesis. This second edition includes a new introduction.
