Synopsis

Eschatology Biblical, Historical, and Practical Approaches by D. Jeffrey Bingham

We live today in a world whose problems far surpass our ability to manage them. Social unrest and growing intolerance at home, terrorism abroad, worldwide simmering ecological and financial crises-the changes escalating on this planet point to a daunting future. What we desperately need is hope. Hope is what the Bible offers. From Genesis to Revelation, it points toward God's coming kingdom beyond the sufferings and injustices of this present age. The essays in this book provide an overview of 'the blessed hope' among the people of God, writes Timothy George in the foreword, beginning with the Bible and continuing through the many challenges, reversals, and revivals of this hope in the course of Christian history. The twenty-eight contributors to Eschatology: Biblical, Historical, and Practical Approaches communicate biblical perspectives on what the future holds for the world and the followers of Christ. In four parts it explores: The Doctrine of the Future and Its Foundations The Doctrine of the Future in the Bible The Doctrine of the Future in the History of Christian Thought The Doctrine of the Future and Christian Ministry For Bible students and readers who desire a deeper biblical understanding of the future, this book offers a multifaceted view of both the challenges and the promise that lie before us.
