The clear azure sky was dotted with billowing clouds. Majestic mountains rose above the horizon. The sun set dramatically beyond ocean waves while dolphins danced across the water. God saw these things, and called them good. Then a snake spoke, a fruit core dropped to the ground...and we've been getting farther and farther from Eden ever since.

Today smog hugs city air. Ch

Because rapture-obsessed modern Christianity is caught up in the idea of going to Heaven, it misses the manifest biblical teaching that the resurrection points to a future, redeemed life here on Earth. Because God is redeeming the creation, which will be consummated when Christ returns, earthly (which is not the same as worldly) work and activity is important and eternal.

A necessary antidote to the pervasive airy-fairy, gnostic picture of the eternal state.

great intro that helps flesh out a kind of neocalvinistic worldview. great read for folks trying to see what some of those implications might be.

To be on mission in this world, we must have a full love of the world. If you sing, "turn your eyes upon Jesus"...and... "the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of his glory and grace," are you turning your away from the creation God loves? We were created to be on this planet. Marshall shows how to love God and love our neighbor in this world, something we need to do in order to be on mission in the world.

Love the title and the concept but it didn't go as deep as I'd like it to. It kind of pecks around the surface of a very big issue and as a result is only ok.

Not sure if I agree with all of Marshall's philosophy but it is a very eye opening discussion.

A solid survey of how God's grand redemptive story influences how we live in the here and now. A great introduction that will lead the reader to further explore the cultural mandate and the eschatological implications of the holistic Gospel.

Some very good points, some mediocre, and a little I disagree with (page 173).
