Nancy Guthrie is one of the best teachers of Scripture I’ve ever heard or read. Her style—even in writing—is conversational. It’s like you’re sharing a cup of coffee while tracing the central motifs of the biblical story from Genesis to Revelation. Eden was great, but the new creation will be greater than the first—not because this world will be no more, but because it will be so much more. It’s not only the end of sin and death, but the kind of righteousness and life that we just can’t wrap our brain around right now. But we do get glimpses—and no better ones than those that Guthrie brings out with such warmth, excitement, and skill.

--Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

Even Better than Eden weaves a glorious tapestry of variegated scriptural threads. Nancy Guthrie traces nine magnificent threads from creation to consummation that provide an accessible primer on the biblical metanarrative. Each thread, when unraveled, reveals the beauty and splendor of Jesus. The pages of this book fill me with an eager anticipation of the day when we will get to our home that will be even better than Eden and the completed work of art will be unveiled in all its glory.

--Karen Hodge, Coordinator of Women’s Ministries, Presbyterian Church in America; coauthor, Transformed

As a pastor, I have discovered that Christians need help learning to tell their own story in ways that rightly connect it to what God has preserved for us in his Word. With Even Better than Eden, Nancy Guthrie does just that. Here is a book that will train you to speak more winsomely to others about why and how Jesus matters.

--David R. Helm, Chairman of the Board, Charles Simeon Trust; Pastor, Christ Church Chicago
