In the 'God Delusion' Richard Dawkins claims that the books of the Bible have very little relation to each other. If that is one of his arguments for dismissing scripture he really ought to read this book. Fesko argues convincingly that the first three chapters of the very start of the Bible (Genesis 1-3) have huge implications for the work of God that is fulfilled in Jesus Christ and link very clearly with the last part of the book of Revelation. The major themes are covered if one wants to understand this. 'The Garden Temple', the 'Covenant of Works' and particularly the work of Christ as the 'Second Adam'. Some might find this a little bit theoretical in places but Fesko always sets his argument within the framework of scripture and by dealing with how the start of the Bible points to the end. This also gives a framework that helps us understand the scripture in between and hence its message. Anyone who is serious about their faith would do well to read this book.
