PREFACE TO THIRD EDITION
During the years that have intervened since the first and second editions of this book were printed, the world has seen chaos, confusion, and conflict such as never, since the days of Adam, had swept over the earth. Political upheaval, social disorder, economic stress, global war, spiritual darkness — these tokens of the confusion wrought through sin have caused men's hearts to fail them for fear.
Yet, as we send out this third edition of "God's Plan of the Ages," we are forcefully impressed with the fact that the message of God's inspired Word, which these chapters seek to proclaim, meet man's need today, even as it did many years ago or six millenniums ago, when Adam's sin brought sorrow and suffering and death upon all mankind.
Therefore, this third edition is sent out with the reiterated prayer that it may lead many souls to Him, to Whom are known "all his works from the beginning of the world" (Acts 15:18).

GOD'S PLAN OF THE AGES
by Louis T. Talbot
The able and scholarly Dr. Talbot, Chancellor of Biola College and Talbot Theological Seminary, here presents another edition of his book, the outline of God's plan from the beginning of Genesis to the close of Revelation.
Clear-cut as a textbook; inspiring as an exhortation; and impelling in its conclusions!
The prophecies of Daniel are expounded in detail, as are those of Revelation. The definite purpose of God for each age or dispensation is made apparent as the plan is unfolded. The chart is given at the front of the book.
Premillennial in its chiliastic conception, the complete scriptural backing is given for each statement so that the student may study lor himself and find out whether these things be so.
Much confusion exists in the minds of many as to the difference between the Judgment Seat of Christ and that of the Great White Throne. Dr. Talbot makes this clear, as well as many other troublesome questions.
The Church, he says, is to be translated at the beginning of the Tribulation Period, in order to escape the purifying judgments and to let sin come to a head.
This comprehensive view of God's dealings with man has value not only to the student of the Word and Prophecy, but to the Christian who should be thoroughly furnished in all knowledge concerning the Word of Truth.
