Item description for The Eclipse of Heaven: The Loss of Transcendence and Its Effect on Modern Life by A. J. Conyers...
"We live in a World no longer under heaven. At least in most people's minds and imaginations that vision of reality has become little more than a caricature, conjuring up the saints and angels of baroque frescoes. And in the church only a hint remains of the power it once exercised in the hearts of believers".
So begins A. J. Conyers in this provocative book, and suggests that the eclipse of heaven has resulted in a shallower view of life and death, in a loss of cultural and individual purpose, and in moral disarray. This is a powerful, persuasive plea to stop blocking heaven from our sight, and so to regain hope, meaning, and richer lives -- in this world and the one to come.

End of the Eclipse? Jun 13, 2002
A lucid, sensitive, knowlegeable, thoughtful, and beautifully written book, this account of the eclipse of transcendence--and how we may end the eclipse--reminds me of C. S. Lewis.---Jeffrey B. Russell, author of A History of Heaven.
