In a way the series constitutes a kind of ‘salvation history’. It seeks to show that God is the Eternal One, the One who inhabits eternity, is eternal, immortal and invisible, yet is the Living God within His creation and not detached from it. That is, He is active, always doing those works which He has purposed from before time began, with the end (telos) in view that He has planned. This idea might not be new to any of us, and we may take it calmly having received this teaching of His sovereignty somewhere in our past.

The question we need to ask is whether His sovereignty is so much of a reality to us that it has determined much of our actions in life and ministry. By talking about God’s eternity we do not so much wish to refurbish our understanding of God as eternal and sovereign, but to see how history has worked out—and will work out—according to His will and expressed plan, and understand something of that flow of history, its significance for us and our relatedness to it and our part in it.
