Book Description

1 Oct 1999 Trinity & Truth
The hopes by which the modern West has lived are widely understood to have failed. We recognise the ideology of historical progress for what it is - a myth, which no longer provides humanity with grounds for hope. In the face of the failure of secular hope, the authors present us with a way forward - a radical faith in a future for the world that is in God's hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Written 6 Dec 2004
By Anne Rice - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'll leave the complex in depth reviews to others. What I love about this book is that I can understand it. It's graceful and lucid and reading it is a pleasure. The words are infused with a kind of joy. As a novelist, I have to make characters, plots, put people in action. It's hard for me to approach theology or philosophy because of the density of abstractions in the writing. I just can't get most of it. But these two highly gifted theologians have written something of great meaning that is accessible to some one like me. As to the premise of the book, it's a convincing testament to the unfathomable and ever increasing power of the Christian Event. It moves us forward. I connect it with Teilhard de Chardin.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 26 April 2009
By Book Guy - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another work disfigured by the inability to tell the difference between conventional liberal politics and the Christian worldview. I am sick to death of Brits like Bauckham and N.T. Wright going on about the "ambiguous American empire." It reminds me of the old quip about the Holy Roman Empire being neither holy, nor Roman nor an empire. America is neither an empire nor ambiguous, and the current "international order" or "community of nations" they are talking about isn't the nation created by the Founders. Englishmen like John Winthrop founded America on the purely Deutoronomist basis of creating in a new land a Christian republic. That Bauckham views this as just another discredited Enlightenment project shows that he doesn't understand the country and maybe he should leave out discussions of it in the books he writes.
