Item Description...
In this book, Ulrich Kortner addresses the issue of apocalyptic anxiety by offering a theological and philosophical evaluation of the apocalyptic. In particular, Kortner looks at how theology, responding in pastoral sensitivity, should deal with apocalyptic fears and anxieties. Kortner concludes that real meaning and hope for the world is possible only after the world's inhabitants deal constructively with the stark reality of the world's end.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Promising but utlimately disappointing  Feb 2, 2003
If you're like me, then you are revolted by the trivialization of Christian eschatology in popular literature and in fundamentalism. You're also probably longing for a clear, critical theological presentation of the issue. While Kortner certainly offers clarity and other virtues of scholarship, this book is ultimately a disappointment.

Kortner provides illuminating discussions of philosophy and theology as it relates to the issue of apocalyptic. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find much of his own view in the midst of all this summarizing and synthesizing. Moreover, the book lacks the kind of systematic consistency that other works on the subject have, e.g. Brunner's "Eternal Hope" or Moltmann's works. Certainly worth reading - but not very satisfying.
