The Romance of Redemption: Biblical Types of the Bride of Christ


Warren A. Gage’s The Romance of Redemption operates on the theory that if the prophets, priests, and kings of the Old Testament are types of Christ, then their brides are types of Christ’s bride—the church.

The book tells the story of 16 brides in the Bible. Four brides discovered at a well in a far off country. Four royal brides, whose stories anticipate the destiny of the bride of Christ. Four brides marred by whoredom, and four brides notable for their purity. And finally, in the epilogue, Mary Magdalene, and the profound story of her redemption.

As Gage weaves together these bridal stories, he shows their unifying thread to be a demonstration of some aspect of the gospel, and displays how their differences highlight the vast expanse of redemption through Jesus Christ.
