    • One of the most helpful books I ve read defending Christ s redemptive work in culture Addresses Isaiah 60, as well as some other texts from Isaiah and Revelations, arguing that the cultural products and wealth of nations, including the legendary Ships of Tarshish will be among those things that are brought in with a renewed purpose of glorifying the Lamb in the New Jerusalem Also addresses how politics relates to Christ s redemption of all things, when the Kings of many nations will be brought l [...]


    • This book is a discussion of Christ and culture rooted broadly in Isaiah 60 with an eye toward the Holy City, described in the passage The discussion is revealing about political structures, the gathering of world culture into the City, the multi ethnic reality becoming characteristic, the light of the city being the Lamb a rich picture of Christ amidst the discussion of culture Not just a description the center, the light that illuminates everything else I really like Mouw As a theologian he is [...]




    • Good exegesis and biblical theology perspectives of Isaiah 60 and insights on Isaiah 2 and Revelation 21 22 Gives a biblical view of culture which can easily fit in apologetics Also helps for interpreting biblical prophecies and their fulfillment.


    • This is a 2002 revised edition that I bought out of curiosity because of its subtitle Isaiah and the New Jerusalem There are so many strange theories about the New Jerusalem floating around that I felt it would be a relief to read what a professor had to say, based on the vision of Isaiah that kicked off the whole dream in the first place.It s fascinating to me that Mouw matter of factly assumes his readers agree literally with what the scriptures say about an afterlife, on earth, in the New Jer [...]


    • Mouw offers great insight into the heavenly city that comes to earth The implications of Isaiah 60 are cultural artifacts that once served rebellious design are now brought to the new king Jesus displayed for his glory the political power agents of the earth will be paraded into the city subject to the servant king a lion like lamb sitting on the throne the ethnic peoples of the earth will fill the city praising the Lamb who was slain the whole earth will now be harnessed remodeled for the sake [...]


    • Very solid defense of the idea that cultural artifacts survive the transition between the present world and the new heavens and new earth Mouw is careful and nuanced He holds to the transformationalist paradigm, though with a few qualifications I was surprised by how much Mouw argued about survive the transition At the end of it, I wondered if there was anything that didn t survive except people.


    • Great study of the redemption of culture in Isaiah 60 Mouw connects Isaiah 60 both to God s original creation and the new creation to come in the future This is a very helpful book.


    • I highly recommend this book for those who want to understand just how far Christ atonement for sin reaches.


    • This is in an incredible book which provides a thorough look at Is 60 regarding what the future eternal, earthly kingdom will look like.


    • This is an exciting, insightful, enjoyable book The look forward to the new creation often led to praise as I read.


    • A reflection on the eschatological vision of Isaiah 60 and the implications for relating to human culture now and in the heavenly future I liked it
