The Bible's eschatological framework is spread across the table for all to see in The Search for Order, showing the unfolding of God's total plan for history - not just the last days. In a world disordered by sin, Scripture describes God's goal as a reordering of corrupted creation, according to William J. Dumbrell. The author takes into account current positions as he looks for the big eschatological picture with the same thorough approach to biblical theology he brought to The End of the Beginning and Covenant and Creation. In the resulting thematic survey students are allowed to draw their own conclusions about the Bible's overall position on the climactic scenes of history. Ultimately they learn to conceive of eschatology less as an expectant construction of future events than as a theological approach to comprehending what God is doing today.
