Item description for Theodicy And Eschatology (ATF Task of Theology Series) (ATF Task of Theology Series) by Bruce Barber & David Neville...
This is the next book in the Task of Theology Today series. It examines the issues of evil and the end of time (theodicy and eschatology). This is done from various perspectives, including biblical (both Old and New Testament), scientific, philosophical, theological, and historical (within the patrsitics -- from the perspective of the early church Fathers). By means of eschatology, Christian faith offers to a broken world a recovery from evil. The heart of the Christian faith is the mediating eschatology of the incarnation. Eschatology functions as messianic promise for the world, not above the world. The difference between apocalyptic and eschatology is that the former offers a determinate content to particular messianic promises. Apocalyptic thus functions as a horizon, in contrast to eschatology, which is not in itself a horizon but is always the instrument of disruption for discerning a horizon. Contributors include Bob Russell, Mark O Brien, OP, Christiaan Mostert, David Neville, Dorothy Lee.

A strongly recommended read for clergy and lay students of Christian theological studies Mar 15, 2006
Co-edited by Bruce Barber and David Neville, Theodicy And Eschatology is the outstanding result of a conference that addressed two of Christianity's most important modern issues: "Theodicy" which is the belief in a just God in the face of evil and suffering and "God's Eschatology" which is the belief in fulfillment of Jesus' saving mission, experienced as God's healing of humanity afflicted by suffering and evil. Including contributions from eight theologically astute and highly respected individuals, Theodicy And Eschatology is a strongly recommended read for clergy and lay students of Christian theological studies.
