Item Description...
In ordinary conversation imaginary escapes from everyday living often masquerade as "hope," but true hope involves seeing what one hopes for intersect present reality. Confusion over hope confuses everything about the relationship between eternal life and everyday living: ideas about the Church, sin and redemption, God, Jesus, worship, love and eternal life itself. Conversely, clearer thinking about hope allows clearer thinking on all of these issues. After clarifying hope itself, Dynamics of Hope identifies questions and applies lessons learned about eternal life and everyday living that arise regarding hope.

Publishers Description
"This finely written book accomplishes something quite amazing...the author is able to show how eschatology is deeply entwined with everyday human life and with the ethical re-making of the here and now."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Brisk Mental Exercise  Jun 25, 2006
The author of this work, Charlotte J. Martin, Ph.D., is a professor of religious studies writing for graduate students, preachers, adult education groups, and those who read theology for personal enjoyment. She promises her audience an experience akin to "taking the mind for a good brisk walk."

Though I do not fit the profile of the target audience, I found the chapter on heaven, hell, purgatory, and last judgment particularly enlightening. I will present some of the points I gleaned as a taste of what is in store for those who accept the author's invitation to that brisk mental walk.

Martin asks if "heaven" and "hell" are the right ideas for eternal life. She examines the views of theologians Karl Rahner and Paul Tillich on the subject, pointing out their differing definitions of good and evil choices. Rahner believes choices always turn one completely toward or completely against God; Tillich believes all choices are a mix of evil and goodness. Martin then reviews Tillich's theory that in eternal life, God strips away the evil elements from one's life choices, leaving only unambiguous good. Of this "re-creation" by God, Martin writes, "As much as one's actions lacked goodness, one's re-created self will regret. But the unambiguous goodness of this re-created self will make one happy to regret the evil in one's deeds, happy to praise God's goodness through that regret."

Clearly this resource calls for study, not simple reading. The uninitiated who are willing to accept the challenge might form a group and tackle one chapter at a time, perhaps with someone trained in theology as a guide.
