Item Description...
With this book Donald G. Bloesch completes his seven-volume systematic theology. Readers who have appreciated the earlier works will find the same clarity and precision demonstrated here as he maps out the theological landscape surrounding the theme of eschatology and guides us along a trail that runs through this often controversial and confusing territory. While characteristically Reformed in orientation, Bloesch is concerned to acknowledge the relative strengths of other Christian traditions including Pietist, Wesleyan, Lutheran, Anabaptist, Pentecostal and Raman Catholic. In this book Bloesch takes up difficult and sometimes controversial themes such as the coming of the kingdom of God, the return of Jesus Christ, the life hereafter, hell, heaven, purgatory and paradise. Wrestling with biblical texts that often take metaphorical form, Bloesch avoids rationalistic reductionism as well as timid agnosticism. While he acknowledges mystery and even paradox, Bloesch finds biblical revelation more that sufficient to illuminate the central truths of a Christian hope articulated throughout the history of the church. This book is not just a review of past Christian eschatology but a fresh articulation of the grace and glory of God yet to be consummated. The triumph of the grace of Jesus Christ and the dawning of hope beckon us to reach that blessed future but also promise to renew the life of the church universal today.

More About Donald G. Bloesch

Donald G. Bloesch (1928 2010) was a noted American evangelical theologian. From 1957 until his retirement in 1992, he was a professor of theology at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa, where he continued as a professor emeritus. For more than forty years, he published scholarly yet accessible works that generally defend traditional Protestant beliefs and practices while seeking to remain in the mainstream of modern Protestant theological thought. He characterized himself a progressive evangelical or Ecumenical orthodox, criticizing the excesses of both the theological left and right. Bloesch s pietistic background and personal spiritual life lay at the heart of understanding his theology.


Donald G. Bloesch was born in 1928 and died in 2010.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Last Volume is on the Last Things.  Dec 21, 2004
This is another great contribution to Bloesch's theology of Word and Spirit. It is his last volume but certainly not his best. Divergent traditions are assessed for contributions they make and errors they espouse relating to the end times. The author surfaces some controversial areas at the beginning of the book, moves on to a discussion of supernatural powers (demons, angels), and then analyzes eschatological events like the day of the Lord, millennial views, (the rapture is rejected by Bloesch) and the resurrection. Many in the evangelical camp will be disappointed by Bloesch's emphasis upon the communion of saints, including the benefits of mutual communication by prayer, and the possibility of salvation after death. While not a Universalist, the author moves close to Barth and emphasized the ultimate triumph of God's grace beyond the grave. At times the book reads more like a polemic for his position on these areas than a theological discussion flavoring also the chapters on the Interim State and the Triumph of Grace.
Bloesch's binary perspective and explanation of issues continues in this volume. Familiarity with a multiplicity of traditions and scholars is a strength of Bloesch's work and this volume is no exception. Current trends including Open Theism are addressed and Bloesch is not afraid to state his own views clearly; points that make this book worth the read. In the end, Bloesch is strongest in matters Christological rather than eschatological.
Theology and Hope  Oct 11, 2004
THE LAST THINGS is the seventh and final volume of Donald Bloesch's CHRISTIAN FOUNDATIONS series. As I've said before, this is a unique systematic theology. Most systematic theologies provide extensive discussions of biblical concepts and the history of theology. CHRISTIAN FOUNDATIONS is different in that, while the Bible is discussed, much of the work consists of the interaction by Prof. Bloesch with other thinkers and schools of thought. Prof. Bloesch is something of an evangelical centrist of a Reformed persuasion, so you can see how a centrist interacts with more liberal and more conservative thinkers.

THE LAST THINGS concerns what is often called general eschatology ("bible prophecy") and individual eschatology (what happens to people after they die). Prof. Bloesch is always interesting and irenic. For example, he takes the position that there is the opportunity for conversion after death, based on the passages in the Bible which describe Jesus preaching to the dead (such as I Peter 3 & Eph. 4). Of course, these verses are difficult to interpret (some take them to mean merely that Jesus preached to those who had since died or were "spiritually dead") and a one-volume work such as Donald Guthrie's NEW TESTAMENT THEOLOGY has a more in-depth discussion of these passages.

In spite of its limitations, Prof. Bloesch's CHRISTIAN FOUNDATIONS makes for rewarding reading, but is not a substitute for more "foundational" studies of Christian theology.
