Item Description...
Two leading New Testament scholars explore the Christian vision of the future from the perspective of life today. The start of the twenty-first century evokes fresh concern for what the future holds. Will it bring an end to suffering and evil? Can we look for a new heaven and earth? Will judgment be cosmic or personal? HOPE AGAINST HOPE revisits these and other questions central to Christian eschatology and provides a fresh yet responsible look at the church's vision of the future. Integrating images from the Bible and Christian tradition with analysis of contemporary Western culture, Richard Bauckham and Trevor Hart reinterpret the meaning of such eschatological themes as the antichrist, the last judgment, and the kingdom of God in terms that will benefit students and general readers alike.

Publishers Description
Using the present failure of secular hope as the context for a renewal of the Christian vision for the future, Bauckham and Hart seek to re-source Christian hope from its rich heritage of biblical promises and their interpretation in the Christian tradition. They explore the major images of eschatology - the Antichrist, the millenium, the last judgment, the kingdom of God, and others - proposing the category of imagination as the key to understanding their significance today. The authors insist throughout on the cosmic scope of Christian eschatology, writing of God's future not just for individuals but for the whole creation, and they explore the relevance of such an eschatology for Christians living in the present.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beautifully Written  Dec 6, 2004
I'll leave the complex in depth reviews to others. What I love about this book is that I can understand it. It's graceful and lucid and reading it is a pleasure. The words are infused with a kind of joy. As a novelist, I have to make characters, plots, put people in action. It's hard for me to approach theology or philosophy because of the density of abstractions in the writing. I just can't get most of it. But these two highly gifted theologians have written something of great meaning that is accessible to some one like me. As to the premise of the book, it's a convincing testament to the unfathomable and ever increasing power of the Christian Event. It moves us forward. I connect it with Teilhard de Chardin.
