In this book Ed Wharton makes available his lecture notes from his course "Scheme of Redemption" Under the title "Christ and the Church- The Fulfillment of Purpose and Prophecy, Wharton has arranged the study for classroom use into three major divisions: Historical Doctrinal, and Eschatological. The first division presents the historical progression of the plan of salvation from its beginnings in the Garden, through the seed-line of Abraham, to its fulfillment in Christ and the church. The second division presents the doctrine of the uniqueness of Christ (Colossians) and the distinctiveness of the Church (Ephesians) as combatants against the encroachments of paganism to fatally dilute the saving power of the Gospel. The third division exposes the basic errors of the premillenial theory of interpretation ands its theology of the prophesied kingdom, and concludes with the presentation of four guidelines for correctly interpreting Old Testament prophecy.
