This book is based on the thesis that God Himself is ever "on mission", by which we mean that He is in Creation working with all Creation to effect His goal for it. Even before Creation, God could be said to be "on mission", he would complete His goal whatever. Man was commissioned to work within that divine plan for producing an Edenic world. These plans seemed doomed to failure from the beginning because of the actions of a serpent which tempted the primal couple away from communion with the Creator.
But opposed to all that is evil is the Community of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, the trifold God who catches up redeemed Man into His goal, taking him on mission with Himself.
This book, then, is an unveiling of history in which the Community of God, along with God's humanity, brings all history to its climax in God's telos. Man's participation with his creator produces the remarkable community of Man, the most exciting and thrilling story ever planned and brought into completion.
