Item description for Eschatology And Hope (Theology in Global Perspective) by Anthony Kelly...
Overview Probes Christian wisdom and contemporary thought to help us "give an accounting for the hope" that is within us (1 Peter 3:15) in troubled and uncertain times. Anthony Kelly offers the reader an introduction to the central theme of Christian eschatology, the doctrine and study of what Christians hope for as they follow the Way taught by the prophets and saints and, above all, opened up in the paschal mystery of Jesus of Nazareth. Kelly examines the concept of hope in general and how eschatology enlarges the scope of what humans anticipate in ways that transcend mere continuation of life after life. Hoping for life after death, a sage once said, is not a particularly "religious" action. Kelly helps the reader see that Christian hope involves much more than hope for immortality.
