Armageddon

I will write more later about eschatology (last things) but this book struck interests:
God, Heaven and Har Magedon: A Covenantal Tale of Cosmos and Telos by Meredith Kline.

In this book it is raised that “Har Magedon” where we get “Armageddon” truly means Mountain of Assembly or Mountain of God. This rendering really goes with the flow of redemptive history. This moves away from the dispensational pessimistic view of Armageddon found in literature such as Tim LaHaye writes and brings in the true focus of Scripture and that is that God is gathering a people to Himself. It is yet another picture of Genesis 3:15 found in Revelation 16:16.

There is a book review found here.
