Item Description...
Overview
Though evangelical Christians are united in the eschatological hope of a new heaven and new earth, there is disagreement on the form and significance of this belief. In this thoughtful collection of essays, Stephen Williams traces the development of eschatological theology in recent decades, interacting with significant thinkers such as J|rgen Moltmann and in dialogue with fellow-evangelicals such as Miroslav Volf. He then argues that our exact beliefs about the world's future should affect our present activity less than many people think. Love, rather than speculation about the last things, should serve as the foundation of Christian social action and responsibility. Moreover, if social action is properly motivated by love, eschatological differences should not prevent Christians from working co-operatively with each other in matters of social activism.
